My Style: Roland Parrish

What do you do?
“I lead Parrish Restaurants Ltd., which owns and operates 25 McDonald’s restaurants in Dallas-Fort Worth.”

Who is your style icon?
“Dr. Cornell Bell or a toned down Michael Irvin.”

What inspires your style choices?
“It depends on the social or business meetings I have going on that day. It could be meeting with contractors on a construction site, or a high-level meeting with bankers in a fancy board room.”

How would you describe your style?
“My style is crisp, color-coordinated, neat, and contemporary. Not too flashy. I like to call it, “urban relevant.” But I never want to be known as an old man trying to dress like a teenager.”

What do you never leave home without?
“A sport jacket.”

Do you have a go-to look?
“A nice pair of jeans with a sport jacket. The shirt can vary from a theme T-shirt, golf shirt, or shirt and tie, depending on the occasion.”

Favorite store?
