Men’s Fashion- Johnnie-O

Josie Girls! Those of you with men in your lives know one thing: for the most part, men are pretty terrible dressers.  Sure, there are some men out there who are fashionable, but for the most part, men need a lot of help with their wardrobes.  You can’t blame them: women are more likely to shop and follow fashion, and men are more likely to watch football.  That’s just the way it is.  But that doesn’t change the fact that men need help, and women who date men who need help also need help getting their men help.  I think that made sense!

So every now and then, this Josie girl will provide ideas on how you can get the man (or men) in your life a little more fashionable.

One area where I think men can use a lot of help is the polo shirt.  In theory, it can look good, but every time I see a Ralph Lauren or Lacoste polo shirt, I look the other way. TOTALLY boring, overly preppy, and way too common. SNORE!

My favorite men’s polo shirt is by Johnnie-O, a relatively new L.A.-based clothing company that specializes in “West Coast Prep” (and if you have been reading, you know I bleed Best Coast!)


Yes, it's a polo shirt, and yes, it's still preppy. But it's definitely got its own feel, and slightly hipster flair.

Johnnie-O was founded by John O’Donnell, the brother of actor Chris O’Donnell. His vision is to build a brand that mixes West Coast style with an East Coast feel, and for the most part, I think the company has done a great job.

The above signature 4-button polo ain’t cheap ($65), but it is cheaper than the Ralph Lauren ($85) and Lacoste ($89 full price) equivalents.  And it is more unique (unless you are Ken, and have 8 of these shirts, and wear them all of the time.)

Ken rocking a Johnnie-O shirt this summer. And if you are like me and just did a double-take at this picture, um yep, looks like Mr. Cruz is naked.....or partially so. HI TUSH!

If you are trying to convince your guy to wear them and he likes football (which I am pretty sure they all do), go here.  Apparently, that is Drew Brees, who apparently is an awesome QB, who apparently, football fans love.  So if Drew Brees likes Johnnie-O, I am sure your Josie guy will too! Here are some photos of Ken wearing his Johnnie-O shirts — handsome and guapo as ever, and always in a Johnnie-O!!!


Biggest day of our life thus far, and Ken wears a Johnnie-o shirt!

Day 2

Day 2 of Cruzzie's life, and Ken is in AGAIN, a Johnnie-O shirt. Makes packing easy when you know that all you are going to wear is one shirt in every color!


You like pink? Ken looks great in pink. And the Johnnie-O in pink looks even better!


Blue? They have blue, too! (Ken with our niece Alagna)

little boys

And they have the cutest little Johnnie-O polos for boys, too! I absolutely love dressing Ken and Cruzzie in the same outfit (yes, I am that type of mother. LOVE it). And check out how cute Cruzzie looks in this ensemble (no pants, again).

I swear that EVERY guy will look great in these slimming and practical shirts. IN EVERY COLOR OF THE RAINBOW.

Until next time, have a great weekend!

  1. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer. Superb Blog!

  2. Paragraph writing is also a fun, if you be acquainted with after that
    you can write if not it is complex to write.

  3. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  4. Ahaa, its nice discussion concerning this piece of writing here at this
    weblog, I have read all that, so now me also commenting here.
