What is a gentleman?
The question often crosses my mind, and I always think of my grandfather; he was polite, well dressed, educated, well spoken, and enjoyed the finer things in life, while never turning down his nose on those who are different.
When I ready the story of Jacob Holston and how he started his collection that is made for todays gentleman, it held a lot of similarities to my wonderful grandfather who’s kind words and classic style taught me a lot about fashion, and is probably one of the reasons I really enjoy the Spring 2015 collection from Jacob Holston.
“Inspired by his journeys and adventures throughout the world, the line Jacob Holston was created as an extension of himself and the very things he sees, loves and admires: amazing architecture, motorcycles, cars, formula one racing, a beautiful woman, a gorgeous beach anywhere in the world, fine food, a well-deserved cigar, and a finely aged scotch among other things.”
The Spring collection features classic pieces including block coloured hoodies, slim fitted knee length shorts, slim fit tailored pants, fitted light weight blazers with fitted dress shorts, and pops of colour here and there along with small embellishements like toggles on dress shirts and t-shirts.
Check out some of my favourite pieces from the Spring 15 collection and start getting ready for the warm weather to come and wash the winter blues away.
