JOSEPH YOUNG ASSISTANT CONDUCTOR, ASO You might have seen this dapper director gadding about town in Diesel jeans paired with a short-sleeved henley T-shirt. But this past year, Young’s professional duties as assistant conductor of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and music director of the ASO Youth Orchestra have compelled him to diversify his wardrobe. “I still gravitate toward feeling comfortable in everything I wear. I don’t always put on a full suit, but I do try to stand out with a great sports jacket,” says Young, whose father has always stressed to him the importance of a properly ﬁtted suit. For rehearsals, he opts for Jared Lang semiﬁtted shirts with trimmed collars and cuffs to lend a touch of personality on the podium. At performances, he foregoes the standard tie and tails for something comfortable and nonrestricting, with a pop of color. “Black and white are the colors of the concert stage for classical music, but I think we need something a little different,” says Young, who usually can be seen donning a tailored Nehru jacket with a deep-red pocket square. “Oh, and I like to wear fun socks,” he adds. His go-to stores? Diesel, Nordstrom, Saks and the online shopping site Gilt. On the horizon, look for the chic conductor to lead his ﬁrst concert in the ASO’s Delta Classical Series in May. “There’s one more exciting event this summer, but I can’t talk about it just yet,” he adds. Stay tuned! ON HIS STYLE “I tend to be quite casual in my personal style. I am more comfortable in a pair of Diesel jeans and a Diesel short sleeve Henley T-shirt.” Sport coat, $2,495, shirt, $295, and pant, $375, all at Canali, The Shops Buckhead Atlanta; diamond and rose gold ring, $5,800, and Classic Chronograph watch in stainless steel, $4,600, at David Yurman, Lenox Square; socks by Paul Smith, similar styles at Neiman Marcus, Lenox Square; shoes by Romano Martegani.
