One of the most fashionable men in Santa Barbara takes time to kick it with yours truly.
Introducing Marty Bebout
1. what is your favorite piece of clothing right now?
I love all of my Ksubi jeans, but I especially love the grey Joey’s that I got from Purdom, a guy that works for Ksubi. I probably wouldn’t have bought them because they’re super skinny, but there you go! I think I would wear Ksubi’s and Band of Outsider shirts every day, if I had enough of them. I also wear Converse Jack Purcells almost every day. They are the consummate, classic, modern sneaker. I am also a big fan of Creative Recreation.
2. what are you most passionate about in life?
I love to surf and I love my chocolate Lab, Daisy. I love to read mystery novels and I love to do crossword puzzles. Oh, and I love to eat potato chips. Travel’s not my favorite thing; I like to stay close to home. And, I really love to work, too. I love what I do.
4.what do you have in your closet that you love SO much but have no where to wear it to.
I have a one-of-a-kind Henry Duarte long denim jacket with a collar that looks like two birds that was a gift from a special friend. Unless I start a rock band and go on tour and have an interview and photoshoot with Rolling Stone Magazine, I don’t think it’ll make it out of the closet. I have a couple pieces by Lucien Pellat-Finet that I absolutely love, but they are not really wearable. I think they are just part of my collection. I try to wear all of my faves every once in a while, but some are just not wearable – they’re just useless pieces of art collecting dust and amusing no one, but me. If I knew someone that would really wear them, I’d probably give them up.
