FARGO - Mathew St. Martin lives out of a suitcase.

St. Martin has never lived in one city longer than three years at a time, and he's been in Fargo four months with his model-artist wife.

The frequent traveler with a degree in outdoor education relies on necessity to shape his wardrobe. I spotted St. Martin at the Fargo Public Library looking cool and well-traveled.

Describe your style. Random. I started dressing nicer though when I lived in New Zealand.

What are you wearing today? A $7 sweater I bought in California at the Chinese Lantern Festival because I was cold, corduroy pants from the women's section at JCPenney in Michigan and a shirt that my wife got me at Macy's.

What type of clothing do you gravitate toward? I like clothes that fit well. I don't like baggy clothes.

How many countries have you lived in or visited? I think about 40-plus countries.

What city has the best style? I like New Orleans because you can be whoever you are.

What's your favorite piece of jewelry? My leather necklace. I hang stuff on it when I travel. It gains things, it loses things.

You told me you've been in bands. What's your favorite type of music? I like Midwest independent rock and bands like Minus the Bear.

What's your life philosophy? I like sticking my hand in different pots. And, I have great trust in the goodness of people - patience and trust.
