Joshua McLeod is going to be big. Well, he currently stands at a svelte 6ft 2in but in terms of his career his future looks blindingly bright. A senior at Savannah School of Art focusing on Fashion Marketing with a minor in Graphic Design, McLeod is already a successful handbag designer creating each and every chic number completely by hand using all vegan leather. Victor + Alexander bags can be purchased online and in select boutique stores located in Savannah, GA as well as Lacoste, France. When McLeod isn't busy designing, updating his blog, focusing on his studies or posing for the camera he can be found on a mad dash for mid-day cookies no matter what coast he's currently on. The designer spent his summer with us here in NYC, making all of our lives better at Feldspar Brook, and as if we weren't lucky enough to have him as a temporary part of our team, today he goes on record to confess his love of #ThePerfectPolo. Gosh, we'll sure miss this guy..
"They say no one or nothing is perfect, and while I agree with this statement, that doesn't mean that we shouldn't strive for perfection. Growing up, my dad was in the military and he used to always tell me when it came to chores, "Do it right, or do it again." Sounds harsh — I know, but it was one of the best lessons I learned from him. I have carried that train of thought with me all my life through school, work, and even through my business. I'm always finding ways to improve the way I work, until I am happy with the results.
So it was only fate that I happened to come across an internship with Feldspar Brook, a new luxury brand who claims to have designed the perfect polo. And after working with them I've become a believer. With 100% cotton and a fit you can't beat, Feldspar Brook is disrupting the polo shirt market. If that hasn't impressed you, how about the fact they currently have 27 colors with 21 more coming this Spring. Still not impressed? You didn't hear it from me, but they'll be launching long sleeve polos and button downs this A/W season. If you want to try this magical polo on yourself, head over to their flagship store 80 Thompson St, in SoHo, NY." ~ JM
