By Ricky Thompson
Trendsetter, iconic, sustainable: all words to describe him and his fashion. I didn’t say a name, but you thought of him— senior Leon Belman. Selfless, Leon refuses to shop at evil fast fashion clothing stores, rather his wardrobe widely consists of second hand or thrifted clothing. Leon ignores the haters and decides to wear whatever he wants. Jean shorts? Not a second thought before he puts them on. A lot of people like to say audacious things like “Leon, get some new clothes, that’s ripped” in attempts to limit his expression, however they never stop to think that he prefers that. Many in the halls of Westmont High have gawked at Leon’s crazy trends, including his wildly infamous salmon shorts, yet they all secretly know they are simply jealous. Famous rapper and potential future president, Kayne West, actually took from Leon’s closet when he decided to start selling tattered clothes. With Leon’s teachings, we can all be better people, saving more money, simultaneously saving the planet by spending less on clothes.
