Are khaki shorts and a blue blazer a fashion faux pas? Our brand of the month johnnie-O’s founder John O’Donnell doesn’t think so; in fact, it was this kind of pairing that gave way to his successful brand in 2004. John is all about pushing the boundaries of the known and expanding into the unknown, a character trait that gave the company the edge it needed to become so popular over the past 13 years.
John’s life straddled two places, a town on the north shore of Chicago and Los Angeles. He wanted to create the perfect mixture of his two worlds: his Chicago style of khakis, a blue blazer, and penny loafers combined with the Los Angeles flip-flops, board shorts, and graphic tees. It was from his experiences in these two cities that the brand’s "west coast prep" vibes were born.
