When it comes to his "slightly debonair" style, Antwyne DeLonde gives a lot of credit to his wife, Mary DeLonde. Not only does she know how to shop the Nordstrom Rack, but she knows how to shop it for him. "She sees something and gives me a call. Then she sends me a picture, and I'll tell her OK. She buys it, brings it home. I try it on, and then I get it tailored. It's a nice little system," says the 28-year-old financial adviser at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. When we "glimpsed" the Canton resident at his Lutherville office, DeLonde was sporting an outfit that had come almost entirely from the Rack. That included a navy and white striped Bill Blass dress shirt with a white collar, a navy Jonathan Martin suit, a diagonally striped gold Croft & Barrow tie and tan leather Kenneth Cole slip on shoes. His Tag Heuer watch was the one exception, and that was a gift. One of his fashion preferences? "I try to stay away from typical white dress shirts. I like colors."
