Rock Jock

Local musician Mike Marsidi exudes Seattle rocker cool in cardigans and sportswear.

WHY WE LOVE THE LOOK:
Former pro snowboarder turned musician and producer Mike Marsidi has one-upped Grease’s Danny Zuko, managing to walk the style line between sports jock and rocker T-bird with ease (and without the tragic gray sweatpants). While oozing 1950s cool in fitted leather jackets and high-top sneakers, he also blends in slim-cut skater jeans, flat-billed baseball caps and vintage sports jerseys with classic cardigans from his dad’s closet.

“On a style scale with Connie Chung and Barbara Walters on one end, and Forever 21 and Wet Seal on the other, I land squarely in the middle at a sporty Mister Rogers,” he says. “But I rock that Mister Rogers hard, man.”

Mardisi can often be seen rocking his slick pompadour hairdo on stage with his electronic synth-pop band Sports (wearecalledsports.com). Watch one of their music videos here:
