Like everyone else, we here at the Merc are in the midst of compiling our "bests" and "worsts" of 2013. And while the majority of my style-focused listing will appear in upcoming Sold Out columns, I got a ton of responses from the designers, retails, bloggers, and others involved in making and shaping the city's style-focused industry. So, I'm getting things started a little bit early, posting end-of-year reflections that didn't make deadline for the print version, over on yonder MOD.

First up: Designer Caitlin McCall of bike-centric women's apparel line Quick Study.
