Club chic: The dapper duo behind hip NYC hotspots Butter and 1Oak (to name a few) opt for easy-to-wear fashions. "It's the three c's," says Akiva, "Cool, calm, collected—a little bit of edgy but chill and sleek." Sartiano glams up his go-to jeans-and-a-T-shirt style by selecting those tees from John Varvatos.
My how they've grown: "In the last five years or so, I've found my style," says North Carolina native Sartiano. "I'm wearing stuff by Calvin Klein that fits my body well." Akiva, meanwhile, has updated his skater-boy look to include togs by Ralph Lauren and Lanvin. "I like hip-hop, but high-end," he explains.
Men in suits: For dressed up duds, Akiva turns to Christian Dior and Armani ("I have this blue one with pinstripes that's really dope," he says) while Sartiano swears by custom ones created by Michael Andrews.
"I have a pretty good sense of style—I'm proud of it," says Akiva. "I let my fashion flag fly!"
