At a recent photo shoot with the infamous Corey Landry, I had the pleasure of meeting James A. Williams, II who is the President & CEO of “A Stylish Way of Life” Washington, D.C.’s premier style and image consulting firm. During the photo shoot Mr. Williams cuts a dashing figure in his beautifully tailored peacock-blue linen jacket, smart trousers and custom made shoes, posing with his Louis Vuitton garment bag. Each outfit for his shoot was carefully thought out and executed with great style. When I met James, the first thing I said to him was “now this is how a man is supposed to dress” In my opinion the young men of today could take a page out of Mr. Williams’ finely tailored book.
A Stylish Way of Life has been in existence since 2009, they specialize in services that include, but are not limited to wardrobe & custom clothing consultations, personal shopping, closet management, corporate seminars on professional dressing, and visual merchandising. James got his start as child growing up in New Orleans, where his family owned a men’s haberdashery.
It was through the family business in New Orleans, that James learned the difference between fashion and style. To quote him, “At A Stylish Way of Life, we are in the business of style”. Like myself, James believes “fashion comes and goes, but style is a way of life and is forever. While based in Washington, D.C., James travels around the world attending to the sartorial needs of his numerous globe-trotting clients.
Mr. Williams’ Inaugural Spring/Summer Style Event was a huge success with over 100 guests attending. The event was put on with “our gentlemen clients in mind”. Invited guests purchased items directly from vendors and were measured and fitted for custom garments. Throughout the event, the vendors exhibited the latest styles in men’s clothing, shoes and accessories for the upcoming spring and summer season. James is already in the process of working with vendors for his Fall/Winter Style Event which will be held in Washington, DC on September 28, at the City Club.
Ladies we are not forgotten, A Stylish Way of Life also caters to the discerning woman, looking for a chic and upscale way to revamp her wardrobe.
