Jason works in our shop, and can answer just about any question about denim that you can think of. But besides helping to make the masses more stylish, he also keeps our forests safe as a park ranger, and is an aspiring copywriter- in fact, you rarely catch him without a notepad in hand. Our office has voted him “best boyfriend”, and we can always count on him to keep the coffee machine tidy. Click through to see some of Jason’s favorite things.
Jason: Alright, so technically it’s four songs, but I’ve been playing the Hidden Neighbors EP by Mister Lies nearly on repeat. This guy is a 19 year old philosophy major in Chicago and makes some of the most ethereal trip-hop. If there was a soundtrack for the way the skyline glows in the summer night sky, this would be it.
Last movie you watched, and one word to describe it?
Jason: Haven’t watched a good movie in a while as I’ve been wading through the show The Wire. If I had to pick one word to describe it, it would be “monumental”. I’ve never seen a show with such depth, scope, or relevance. I think everyone in America should watch it.
What single item describes your personality best?
Jason: My girlfriend’s mom gave me an awesome Henckels Chef’s Knife this past Christmas. It was a great first step towards getting more serious in the kitchen. I’m all about personal growth.
Gitman Brothers Cambridge Oxford in Blue: I’m the youngest person on the team at Need Supply and in a lot of ways I’m still finding my way around in the menswear game. I’ve learned it’s best to start out with some basic classics and work up from there. It doesn’t get more classic than this.
Rag and Bone Raw Slim-Straight Denim: These were my first pair of raw denim and they fit like a dream. I’m taking them for a saltwater swim in Miami later this summer for their first wash.
Persol 714 Foldable Sunglasses In Black: I’m saving up my pennies for these guys. Gotta protect the peepers from that Miami sun, right?
Common Projects Original Achilles Low- White: Find me a better summertime sneaker. I dare you.
