Chris Carnahan Style Perspective - Distinguished Dominance

How I celebrate the holidays

As a father of three, my wife and I love spending time as family during the holidays. It’s the foundation of loving memories your kids will always remember and pass on to their children. (And yes, we’re all sporting Greyson, with my boys in Greyson Pups.)

How I wear Greyson

From the work day at the Jones HQ, to weekends, golfing, and holidays, Greyson is always a part of my personal style. Living in Portland, Or, I’m constantly building my arsenal of layering pieces to keep a sophisticated casual look across all four seasons.  

My current winter uniform is the Amagansett 5-Pocket Pants and a t-shirt layered with a colorful cashmere hoodie, vest, and jacket topped off with a pair of Air Max 1.

Once it gets warmer, I’m in Saranac Polos and Sioux Vests. Over the last year, I have even started wearing the infamous Greyson prints (with strong convincing by Charlie and the rest of the team Jones!).

Matt Lemman Style Perspective - The Alpha with Street Cred

How I celebrate the holidays:

Holiday is all about family. My wife and I have a 4 year old son (Leo) , and a 7 week old baby girl (Phoebe). Christmas is all about the kids and has taken on better meaning for me since becoming a father. I look forward to lighting a fire Christmas morning and emulating Clark Griswald. And this year in particular, there will be no shortage of Christmas movies. Our family favorites are Home Alone 1 & 2, Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story and Elf.  

How I wear Greyson:

My favorites pieces are the perfect mix of comfort and style - if people do a double take, even better. Starting from the bottom, Greyson Montauk Joggers and Jordans are my go-to-look - I love being able to mix my two favorite sports into my style on the course. Then I’m adding a printed polo, cashmere hoodie (because, you can’t be mad at someone in a hoodie at a country club if it’s cashmere, amiright!?), and a Sioux vest. This outfit is perfect for every occasion, from performing on the course in the Northwest weather to a nice dinner.
