Jacob Holston is a contemporary menswear line that was launched in 2010 by designers Emily C. and Nelson N. Both designers have a background in fully fashion knit manufacturing and a belief that menswear clothing can be sophisticated and luxurious, yet rugged and affordable. (We like that!) London is the inspiration behind the Fall/Winter ’13 collection of Jacob Holston. The collection is comprised of high quality knits, tailored pants, outerwear, cardigans and hooded sweatshirts, all perfect for layering and mix and matching with current pieces in your wardrobe. Some of the pieces in the collection are highlighted with a mixed color yarn (two different yarns that are knitted together to act as one). This technique gives the piece a unique look and feel.
MENTORS NOTE: Rarely is there a menswear line that gives us something to squirm about (and we mean that in a good way!). Jacob Holston pieces are well-made, the color palettes are clean and manly and we are able to introduce their pieces into our wardrobe without starting a revolution. Their color blocked, v-neck sweaters (shown above) can be worn in cool or cold weather, with a pair of skinny chinos, your favorite jeans or even some flat front shorts. Check our the rest of their collection online and get a few things to add to your closet. Make sure you choose a color that can easily be matched (gray, navy blue, denim, off-white or black).
