Name: Andrew Kyle (@akyle)
Job Title: People & Culture Coordinator. As a member of the Human Resources team, I am the go-to for benefits questions and an organizer of internal culture events. I also take care of a lot of the behind the scenes administrative functions.
Which glasses are you wearing? 3.1 Phillip Lim Chloris Green Tortoise
How long have you worked at Coastal.com? 2 years this May!
How many glasses do you own? Which pair is your favorite? Right now I have 7 frames with my current prescription. In total, I probably own close to 15 pairs. My favorite pair is a matte black, retro style Joseph Marc frame. They are bold and versatile, and can be worn with any outfit. I actually lost these glasses at a concert a few years ago but they have since resurfaced in my collection.
Where do you find your style inspiration? Instagram is probably the most useful tool I turn to for fashion inspiration. A close second would be hitting the streets to see the latest trends (who doesn’t love people watching?)
Which glasses style do you tend to lean towards? I generally gravitate towards rectangular or oversized frames for my face shape, but beyond that anything goes! I’m all for incorporating bold colors and textures (I can’t get enough of the wood style frames).
Which song has been stuck on repeat for you lately? I just discovered this French group called Klingande who prominently feature saxophone in their music. I’m all about the sax right now.
Where do you like to shop? Topman, Urban Outfitters, JackThreads, H&M, Frank & Oak
How would you describe your personal style? Eclectic. My style is a mix of the people I have met and the places I have been.
What do you do to relax and unwind? Seawall runs, copious amounts of concerts, Candy Crush, and craft beer.
Tell us about your favorite work memory: When I started at Coastal I was in our Logistics department, and I was working the 5AM shift. I have some fond memories from the summer of 2012 biking to work at 4:30 in the morning while listening to the Frank Ocean album. Box seats at the Miley Cyrus concert also comes to mind…
