Justin Dean Thomas

Back in dark dark January, Mr Natty spent a frosty morning (proper brass monkey weather) on the streets of New York with our good ol' mate Josh Griffler (a fine photographer)and they took some smudges of the very talented singer/songwriter Justin Dean Thomas. Looking properly natty, despite the weather, he told us his story. Originally from Boston, Justin hitchhiked across the States cutting his teeth playing everywhere he could to immerse himself in folk, country, rhythm & blues and rock 'n' roll. Lending his time to poetry and songwriting, he has developed a sound all his own. Now living in NYC, he sang in the subways and clubs before meeting fellow musician TJ Rosenthal. Together they formed the band The Bowery Riots. Justin is on fire with his solo work and he's gearing up for an album release in the near future. The Natty boys wish him all the best and suggest you check out his music here.

Justin Dean Thomas    The Bowery Riots

What do you do? Musician- Singer/Songwriter.  I have my own solo project - Justin Dean Thomas - and a band - The Bowery Riots.
What do you prefer doing? Underwater basket weaving.
Do you have a regime for your grooming? Pomade and a good leather jacket.
Can you recall your first or early barbershop experiences?  I remember this joint in Boston with these old school barbers, they had slicked back hair and you could smell the cigarette smoke on their hands.  The chairs were from the 50’s and I was always in awe when they brought out the straight razor to finish the back. 
All-time getting ready to go out tune? Down on the Street by The Stooges.

Mr Natty for Brooks Brothers by Garcon Jon

WE'RE BACK!

You know how it is, you start one thing, then another comes up and all of a sudden you forget what you were doing in the first place. So here we are, back with the blog. We missed it. Maybe you did too. With a bit of a spring clean and lots of ideas we're here to show you what we're up to once again. Nice to have you with us.

First up, 'ave a peep at these lovely smudges by our ol' mucker Garçon Jon for the new Brooks Brothers Icons. We all jumped aboard and spent a fine day messing about on the canal.

Check out Brooks Brothers here and Garçon Jon here
