Everyone needs to be able to interpret things, be it photo's, media, people and even music...interpretation is what carries us through life, it helps to develop understanding and stimulates our “vices”. It’s the one opinion people have to respect and it’s what's needed to build a lifestyle. This is why we do what we do, we aim to inspire, and to live a lifestyle that won’t cease to be tomorrow but remain relevant forever. Mock our word...because we are motivated and destined for greatness jag saint joi will infiltrate into your world of inspiration, like it or not! Are you inspired? We are, now more than ever and tomorrow...tomorrow will be crazier than today...TRUST! Our dopeness doesn't die...it reciprocates with great intent!

But it’s more where that came from, you’ll be pleased to know that we’re diligently working on a collection for spring/summer ’10 that will indeed make non-believers into habitual supporters. These are just a couple of tanks along with the other tees that we will grace you with. Speak on it because…I’m still speechless!

So in effort to remain in positive spirits, we left Capsule to head to one of thee best boutiques in NY: Teddy Boy! Teddy Boy is one of those places you have to experience! They carry all original goods and some vintage finds for men and women, the fits and style of their stuff …CRAZY!!! Peep the vintage flight goggles with a leather base going around them from the 1930's, SO SICK, I had to pose for a photo...
Just before heading back to the lab we made one last stop to Von on Bleeker & Bowery where the Indy super star: Peter Hadar hosts an ill weekly gathering every Monday. Despite the disappointments, we got confirmation and we can quote this with confidence, "They say a midget standing on a giant's shoulders can see much further than the giant." And I will say our future is looking GREAT, but that about wraps it up in a nutshell...or maybe a Capsule??

We cannot stress the importance of subtle detail, style and fit. As we continue to introduce you to who we are, it’s only fair to allow you to digest and emerge yourself in the craziness that we experience daily. This coat had Jerzi at “Hello” at his first intro, I personally tilted my hat to myself upon completion! We created this coat with our lifestyle in mind, duh, why wouldn’t we! The un-proportioned structure and elements are key in this instance, ensuring not to exaggerate everything but just enough to appreciate the detail. And they said retro couldn’t meet contemporary, ha, we beg to differ. We create the lifestyle we live & love, so we kinda do what we want.

Now that we’ve made you move to a little Muhsinah, I think its only fair to make you stand up and give us a round of applause and possibly a standing ovation! We’ve been in the lab creating dopeness and guess for who? Yep, YOU! We do this for you and the lifestyle we live & love. We cannot stress the importance of a well-placed stitch, good hardware, be it on a bag or a quality fabric.
To lighten the load of anticipation we decided to give you a sneak peak of some of our outerwear and a glimpse of an everyday casual denim shirt by jag saint joi. Through this journey we want to express the importance of making each piece we create a statement, adding well thought-out detail and making sure each piece is as detailed as the next. Speak on it…that’s if you’re not speechless or being drowned out from the applause because we’re still clapping. Are you? – Making of a Lifestyle…jag saint joi

See, I respect the late 1800’s and early 1900's fashion. This photo is a classic image from the ’92 movie “Newsies”. This is timeless fashion that compliments today’s fashion and the “future” of fashion. The clean cut look (especially my friend to the far left and my man in the shorts), the fabric, detail and purity of originality trumped everything during these times. Fashion was simple and effortless. If I could go “Back” to what is now the future, I’d be riding horses with a 3 button cardigan, button down shirt, low rise trousers with no belt loops with a riding boot all by jag saint joi! If that were the case jag saint joi would be 100+ years old, how dope would that be…jag saint joi est. 1900, I can dig it, can you?!?!?-The Making of a Lifestyle...jai saint joi
