Leading a double life
From all appearances, Andrew and Jon Landan spend hours planning their outfits. But outside of more formal engagements the social butterflies known as the Landan Twins aren't so perfectly matched. "Some days one of us will wear lots of color while the other will wear all black. It really matters how each of us feels," says Andrew, pictured with his brother during the opening of the Richard H. Driehaus Entrepreneurial Center at the Chicago Fashion Incubator at Macy’s on State Street. "We really don't coordinate unless we are attending a wedding or black-tie event. When we are home, there is no coordination at all." The secret to their cohesiveness, Andrew says, is sporting the same distinctive pieces: big eyeglasses or loud bow ties or oversize headphones or neon timepieces. "Our signature statement of the moment is our Mohawks," Andrew says. "Jon has a blond one and I have a brown one."
