Today’s dapper gentleman (Dapper Gent) of the week is Jonathan Cole out of Chicago, IL.

There are some great qualities and characteristic of men within the “Cigar Community,” who mixes fashion with their cigar lifestyle.  It displays empowerment when a well-dressed gentleman has a great eye for fashion, as well as a profound appreciation for cigars. One’s fashion choice is based on his personality and level of comfort to be causal, and/or dapper.

Therefore, our “Dapper Gent” of the week, Jonathan Cole, his fashion sense started at a very early age. He was directly influenced by his father, who had a great sense of style. Jonathan’s father would put thought and effort into everything he wore. And, he would make ascertain that his sons followed suit and looked their best for every occasion.

Once Johnathan became a teenager, ​he really started to develop his own sense-of-style. Even as a teen, who wore uniforms to school, he was very meticulous about his attire. He made it his point, to pick out the best quality shirts and slacks, and he always creased and pressed his clothing the night before school. These very early habits influenced Jonathan to subscribe to fashion magazines, which he would use these as a resource and a guide to assisting him with putting together different looks and ideas, at the time.

​​And, from there, this motivated and inspirited Jonathan to pursue his passion for fashion, which has put him in the company of other business professionals in the fashion industry. Also, as he advanced in his career and from the course of meeting other individuals, he became a fashion consultant, which he has his very own business/brand page (stayrandomlyfly), and YouTube channel (RandomlyFly).

In addition, Jonathan was introduced to cigars roughly two years ago, by a good friend, who works at a cigar lounge. The Avo Classic is his cigar of choice because it’s not too strong and it has a smooth pull. Jonathan is a novice to the “Cigar Culture,” so he hasn’t developed his palate, per se, so he likes to stick with a mild cigar.

Jonathan’s drink of choice when having a cigar is Dusse Cognac.
