During this time of the year, cold weather means bundling up under layers of coats and sweaters in order to keep warm. However, A Gentlemen’s Touch (AGT) once again demonstrates how to dress in certain conditions. AGT held a photo shoot in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

There might have been diversity in the clothing, but the overall theme was about remaining fashionable and most importantly warm. Footwear ranged from loafers to boots according to the outfit being worn.

Some participants even included scarves and hats which are common items of clothing for the cooler temperatures.

No heavy jackets were worn, the man instead chose to wear: jean jackets, sweaters or light vests.

Some of the accessories included: bow ties, watches, rings and bracelets for men. Overall, the photo shoot demonstrated that cold weather does not necessarily mean heavy winter wear is a must. Sometimes lighter clothing can work well in cooler conditions just as well as heavy coats and jackets.

Looking at the photos it is easy to see that these outfits allow a lot more easier movement than the standard large coat or heavy boots most people chose to wear.

Just as the individual pieces of a puzzle are put together to form a beautiful picture, the same can be said about picking up an outfit. AGT can be summed up in a one word: class.

At first glance, it appears that the organization only teaches about the importance of dressing with style no matter what the occasion or weather condition. That is far from the truth because it is more to it than that. AGT reaches out to men of all age groups to teach that clothing does not make the man, but it is the man that makes the clothes. Carrying yourself with dignity, confidence and of course style can make all the difference in how you look in another person’s eyes.

On September 21, 2013 at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia in front of the Hancock Welcome Center the second gathering of A Gentlemen’s Touch Photo shoot was held. Men from around the Liberty campus and even other states like Pennsylvania and New York attended the event.  The age group ranged from late teens to men over 30-years-old showing the diversity of the men who support A Gentlemen’s Touch.

Not to mention there was one youngster among the group. It is still in discussion as to whether or not there will be a photo shoot just for kids who fall into the category of “young men.”

Photographers from PA and NY were present along with other photographers from the Lynchburg area. The photo shoot began on the backside of the Welcome Center before moving to the Dr. Jerry Falwell Memorial Garden on campus where a beautiful fountain and house are located. This proved to be an excellent location for some great photos.

What made the photo shoot such a success was that all of the participants had their own unique style to bring to the table. Most of the gentlemen wore blazers while others wore jackets or vests. Some of the standout accessories of the photos shoot were fancy bow-ties and glasses. Other accessories included: watches, scarves, and bracelets for men.

A Gentleman’s Touch is a men’s fashion blog with God at the Helm to teach men of all ages the importance of dressing with class and style rather than swag.

Despite the cloudy sky and cold air, the weather was on their side because it did not rain until after the event. It was a great time of fellowship as everyone made new friends and connections with the various participants and photographers.

Following the event, the men went to lunch at the Spot Eatery where K.J. Jones (one of the founders) spoke about the future of A Gentlemen’s Touch. The idea for the expansion would include more photo shoot events and participating in fashion shows.
