Sid Says


Meet the Team: Josh Jacob

Go behind the scenes at Mr. Sid and meet our amazing staff of unique individuals. This week, Josh Jacob.

1. How did you get your start in the fashion industry?

I started the summer after I graduated high school, and continued through college and beyond.

2. What do you enjoy most about working for Mr. Sid?

I enjoy having the freedom to work with my clients without time being a factor. If we want to grab a bite to eat or a drink we can, and I can make sure they are happy when they leave.

3. What are the most common fashion mistakes you see? 

The most common fashion mistake I see is guys buttoning the bottom button on their jackets. Leave the bottom button undone!!

4. What fashion advice can you give modern gentlemen?

Don't be afraid to try a new color or pattern. Often times a client will come in only wanting dress conservative. Next thing they know, they are in love with a red sport jacket, great pair of denim, and turtle neck. They leave here looking great and feeling great! Plus when you get an email from them explain how their wife loved their new look, you know they will be back and wanting to push their envelope even more.

5. What is your favorite drink? 

I am always a fan of a Rye Old Fashion!!

6. Where would you like to go on your next vacation and why? 

I want to back to Barcelona. I was their over the summer, but only for two days, I loved it, and want to see more of the city and eat more of the food.

7. How many suits do you have in your closet? 

Right now I have two that fit, but slowly rebuilding the collection. I like to recommend my clients have at least two-five suits depending on how frequent they wear them. If a client wears suits everyday for work, they should have at least seven.

8. What do you like to do for fun? 

I enjoy running and obstacle course racing. Of course on a nice day, sitting on my deck with a nice drink and relaxing is always preferred.

9. What is your dream car?

My dream car would probably be a Tesla. I love how they look, and how they drive, and its a car that one day I may actually be able to buy.

10. What is your favorite movie and why? 

My favorite movie is The Dark Knight. I thought Heath Ledger as the Joker was unbeatable, and for those who know me, I like to quote the Joker every now and then...
