The Portrait Of A Son

Date

I recently had the privilege of making an outfit for a special boy. My understanding when I started with this project was that he requested for his graduation ceremony and for his birthday – a custom made outfit by Randy Willard.

With that being said, let me introduce you to 14 year old Federico Sanchez.

As I moved through the process, I discovered that this was no ordinary kid!

His motivation and concern about looking good and feeling great about his style and presentation was not standard protocol for an average young boy. He clearly wanted separation between himself and everyone else for his special day.

What struck me most was his unwavering attitude, but openness to taking direction without compromising.

It was refreshing and absolutely a blast in putting together his outfit for this special moment!

I realized after completion of the day that this was another example of why THE MAN MAKES THE SUIT.

If you’re going to embrace the moment of every day style and grace, you have to be open minded enough to allow your personality to give it up and take direction. 

This attribute can change the world.

Federico showed me why he’s the “portrait of a son”. A fine young boy who wouldn’t compromise his style for anyone.

Congratulations young man, you made everyone proud!
