STAFF PICKS: Dan Saita, Graphic Designer

The people who work at JackThreads don’t just keep things running smoothly — they shape its evolution and day-to-day output. Essential to all of that is a range of tastes, preferences, and lifestyles. JT Staff Picks offers a behind-the-scenes look into who we are, what we do, how we live, and what we like. It’s a way for you to get to know us better, and a way for us to learn more about ourselves.
First up: Dan Saita, a graphic designer living in Brooklyn (where else?) who likes his whiskey on the rocks and his clothing muted, earth-toned and durable.

JackThreads / Dan Saita
Where did you go on your last vacation? Florida

What's your go-to coffee order? Americano

What's your go-to drink order? Bulleit on the rocks

What's in your "Batman utility belt"? Phone, keys, wallet, glasses. I keep a marker kit in my bag, and I always have a book handy.
JackThreads / Sean Munro
In the time between your alarm going off and you sitting down at work, what do you do? Wake up, shower, make my lunch, smoke, get on the train and read — I take the D train from Sunset Park, which takes about 30 minutes — and then I get to the office, make breakfast, make coffee, and sit down at my desk.

What's in your refrigerator? Leftovers from the week — home cooking. Cranberry juice. Ketel One vodka and Kahlúa for White Russians.

What's the number one thing on your bucket list? Explore, travel the world.

What would you never wear? A G-string.

How did you dress in middle school? I had matching shoelaces for every outfit. If I had red clothes on, I would put red shoelaces in my white sneakers. My jeans were super baggy, and I usually wore a fitted hat, a polo, and either white or black shoes with shoelaces that matched my shirt.

What's something you've learned the hard way? To not dwell on the past too much. I've learned to be present and enjoy life without letting the past affect me.
