Tito Chowdhury of Portland Fashion Week sent me a text message saying that the latest addition to the roster this year is Christopher Bevans, the former Nike designer who launched his own line in 2007, and has already been worn by people you've never heard of, like Jay-Z and Kanye West. I'm digging these nerdy jock looks from his S/S 09 collection:
