In the course of a day at Ford, models revolve in and out of the office for business, always looking amazing. When someone’s personal style grabs our eye, we snap his or her picture in the office photo booth and present it here, in our “Style Snap” series.

Jon Paul (Ford Men)

Around the office, few visiting models elicit as sweet a response as Jon Paul. The Florida native is down-to-earth and perpetually smiley—plus, he’s got killer style.


The 18-year-old is also a veritable YouTube celeb (check out our “More Than Models” post to learn about his mad bass skills) whose new band, Basic Vacation, just released a new music video.

Past Perfect
Jon Paul draws inspiration from the ’20s and ’30s, and he tailored his oilcloth pants so they would taper at the bottom like knickerbockers. His vintage tie is from a Palm Beach thrift store, while his Pendleton flannel was another vintage score. As for the hat (a Jon Paul staple), he picked that up from a street vendor in Tribeca. He’s got a newsboy thing going on, and we totally dig it.

Mother Knows Best
Jon Paul’s shopping partner in crime? His mom. Still in Florida, she keeps an eye on the local vintage stores for things her son might like. For everything else, there’s always Rugby.
