Jim’s light gray suit is always in fashion. Styling it with a crisp checkered dress shirt and patterned tie keeps things fresh and modern.

Paired with navy slacks, Zack’s red patterned sport coat makes a statement with minimal effort. A coordinating tie pulls everything together and dresses up the look a notch.

David looks dapper in a timeless, yet functional jacket. His signature bow tie – crafted from black turkey feathers – stands out without overshadowing the rest of the ensemble.
