I’ve been friends with Adam for going on a decade. We grew up several towns apart in Vermont, and have bonded over a shared love of local history and lore, Guided by Voices, and the frustrations and triumphs of being exceptionally tall. By the time we launched The Height of Style men’s stream in June,…
