MEET THE SERVICE FAMILY - CHRISTIAN November 27 2012
Christian was first a loyal Service customer, and then to supplement his wardrobe with employee discounts, picked up part-time work at the store. His passion is also the kitchen. He has worked at Uchi for many years, and makes some mean, wickedly delicious "albondigas." That's Mexican meatballs, for the anglophiles out there. Christian has been a fantastic Service employee, but his other interests and ventures are acting and some part-time modeling.
How long have you worked for Service? On and off again for about 7 years.
What are you up to now? Working the sushi line at a little restaurant on south lamar.
What is your favorite item you've ever purchased from Service? This is a great question because I have invested a lot of my time into their clothes! The winner would have to be my 511 levi's. Four years of hard work and still going.
What's the cheesiest pick up line you've ever used? Did it work?! How 'bout I give you one that was used on me, "I'm a millionaire cougar and I've kinda been stalking you." there's a lot more to it, but that's the point. didn't really work.
Christian is wearing:
Gant, long sleeve striped henley
Penguin, wool blend blazer
Ben Sherman, slim stretch chino
Vans, guitar strap chukka decon
All available at Service Menswear.
