Owner/CEO Components by John McCoy, Exclusive US Agent for Cro’Jack
How would you define your collection? Describe the Cro’Jack man.
English contemporary flare. The Cro’Jack man is to the manner born, but doesn’t mind cleaning up after his thoroughbreds.
Which “must-have” item from your Spring/Summer 2013 collection will instantly update a man’s wardrobe?
The Short Parker Anorak – lightweight fabric with traditional robe trimmings for a modern take on the classic piece.
From where do you draw inspiration?
Inspiration is drawn from English traditions and military archives, especially the classic staples.
What do you consider to be the world’s best fashion city for men and why?
Cities that need 50 weeks of outerwear such as Stockholm, Copenhagen, Paris, and Berlin.
How do you personally stay up-to-date with fashion?
Reading, watching, and visiting. Firsthand exposure to the globe is invaluable.
How do you spend your nights in Las Vegas after a long show day?
Cleaning up after my thoroughbreds – haha! But more truthfully, enjoying the company of far-flung friends at some of the fine restaurants here.
If you were not a designer or principal of this brand, what would you be doing?
I would be building one-of-a-kind fine furniture.
