Meet Raymond Croft. Photographer. Designer. This up and coming mogul of all things gorge, hails from NJ/NYC has a fresh perspective on what it means to be a gentleman and how to rock a bow tie.
My personal style is one that ranges from two different complete ends of the spectrum. One day you can find me in a starter snapback, some drop-crotch sweats and jordans, and another day you can find me in a casual blazer, cuffed khakis and some loafers. My style ranges from being casual to dressed up, it is something that is pretty much decided depending on the day I intend to have.
RC: Believe or not, some of my prize possessions would have to be a few of the vintage snapbacks I own, couldn’t live without them.
KS: What’s something every man should have in his wardrobe?
RC: Every man should have a tan, deep navy, and charcoal grey suit, as well as a pair of black and brown dress shoes.
KS: What’s something every man should know how to do?
RC: Should simply know how to tie a regular tie.
RC: A sailor’s Love for his duties, vessel, and Crew is unparalleled by anything in this world…. Except our passion for fashion & design. This is the origin of “Crew Love”. The wheel of the ship represents the voyage of life. The broken heart, the trials and tribulations throughout. Although broken, the heart remains at the center embodying the anchor of any one person’s voyage in life. Never about size, but about strength. Crew Love represents that strength.
Can’t give to much of that up right now, but lets just say that my photography and Crew Love Apparel is on its way to soaring to new heights very soon.
I'm a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I've been "reporting" from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
