The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | GOING OUT - Emma Fraser

This week we meet Jake McCabe, a graphic de­signer based in Dublin. Jake has such a unique style and al­ways mixes it up when it comes to fash­ion. His look can change dras­ti­cally from day to day and is al­ways care­fully cu­rated. Jake’s tal­ented eye for de­sign can be seen clearly in his per­sonal style. Jake is work­ing free­lance right now on de­sign and con­tent cre­ation. He works with dif­fer­ent personalities and brands to bring their sto­ries to life through so­cial me­dia. Check out his work on his In­sta­gram @ja.yke

Tell us about your out­fit?

My out­fit to­day is based on my love for old-world Latin Amer­ica. Think clean-cut Cuban.

I’m wear­ing a rusty red 1970’s Farah poly over-shirt with a pair of stone cut­offs from Pen­neys, a white shirt from River Is­land with grey suede bas­ket weave tas­sel loafers and topped off with a vin­tage Ma­jor UK grey felt hat.

How would you de­scribe your per­sonal style?

My style is a mish-mash and hard to de­fine. It takes in­flu­ence from 60’s Bri­tish mods and skin­heads, for their ag­gres­sive style, and mixed with some Ital­ian flair for those clean tai­lored lines and a healthy dose of old world Amer­i­cana.

What was the high­light of your sum­mer?

Hands down it was Sea Ses­sions. I spent four days with my clos­est friends in beau­ti­ful Bun­do­ran, surf­ing, skat­ing, with great food and cold beers. Couldn’t ask for more. Pho­to­graphs: Pa­trick Quinn Byrne
