"The Refined Aesthetic was created to provide an outlet for my creative energies. I look to capture the modern man's lifestyle and influence my readers to take a more holistic view of society and dressing. I began the website approximately 6 months ago directly influenced by the experience I had received working inside the fashion industry. Now as my business and personal horizons have broadened I The Refined Aesthetic is a way to create and inspire an audience I would not normally reach with my day to day work.
I try not to pigeon hole myself into one category.I have to ability to transcend trends from the deepest corners of street wear and menswear. I also look to womenswear for trends that can be easily adapted for maximum impact. I draw a lot of inspiration from the work of Tom Ford but also street sartorialists from New York, Toyko and Italy. Again a knowledge and passion of womenswear helps my to generate fresh and new ideas which ultimately flow into the content that is seen on The Refined Aesthetic."

"I take everything day by day. The future would be obviously working at creating content that reaches and connects with a large segment of the community and using this as a platform to make changes in the way we perceive the world around us. I feel strongly about design psychology and how the way we dress influences the world around us. I also want to provide an example of an achievable fulfilling lifestyle from clothes, to food and travel. A label is something I've got in the idea's bank as well, so watch this space!"
It was a pleasure photographing the young and dapper Jack who showed me that there is no age too young when it comes to dressing like a gentlemen.
