(page 10 of 12)

Ethan Daniel Davidson

Musician, volunteer, philanthropist, investor, father, husband

Fashion style:

“I’m Gypsy godfather meets country club goodtime Charlie and everything in between,” Davidson says. This includes a variety of looks mostly all accompanied by unique shoes/boots and clever hats. “Henry the Hatter has changed my life,” he laughs.

Favorite shops:

“I buy vintage clothes all over the world, especially in New York, then I take them to Ali, The Birmingham Tailor, and he works his magic. He’s a real gem here in Detroit.” Davidson also shops at Lost and Found Vintage in Royal Oak, Mother Fletchers in Ferndale, RRL Archive in New York, and of course, Henry the Hatter in Detroit.

Favorite designers:

Rag & Bone and APC

Fashion debut:

“I’ve always fooled around with clothes and my look as far back as high school,” he says. “I’d experiment with all kinds of crazy things. But now it’s taken on a second life. My wife, Gretchen, is a huge inspiration.”

Fashion advice:

“Like with anything, you have to study. Don’t buy a lot, but see a lot and say ‘no’ a lot. You want to put out there what’s inside you. Express yourself even if nobody else gets it.”
