All Dolled Up: Eric Holka looks like a million bucks (but didn't spend it)

Share on Nextdoor

Eric Holka is a busy boy. When he isn't selling ads for Metro Times, he's taking classes to complete his master's degree or working with the nonprofit he co-founded called Healthy Detroit. While all three endeavors keep him busy, the latter is his labor of love. The charity is a public health organization that hopes to help create a healthy, active culture and lifestyle in the city of Detroit.

In the midst of all that, Eric also finds time to look fantastic (we're convinced he doesn't sleep). He was looking especially dapper one Friday when we snapped this shot of him. While Eric usually looks like a million bucks, he definitely doesn't spend that much. He hits stores that are going out of business and big sales for most of his wardrobe – and he isn't above permanently borrowing pieces from his friends.
