Men's Tailored Jackets
Until recently, my husband and I were co-owners of Port Macquarie Taxis for 9 years, where my role was to oversee Media and Community Relations. The recent sale of our business has now opened the door for a new chapter. Currently I oversee the sales and marketing for a fun online men's jacket business called Yolomen. Yolomen jackets are for anyone that isn’t cut from the average cloth. Our wild prints, premium fabrics and exceptional tailoring are guaranteed to set you apart; no matter the occasion, a Yolomen suit jacket is sure to kick it up a notch. Yolomen’s motto is You Only Live Once, don’t live in grey. The concept was borne out of a group of blokes going away for 'mental health' weekends. They stumbled across the idea of wearing crazy loud jackets as an escape from the day to day “grey” in their lives. The positive impact on their psychological wellbeing really freshened their perspective on life after these weekends and they were keen to share the feeling for other blokes to experience. The wearer of a Yolomen jacket is guaranteed a truly unique experience. The jackets are always a conversation starter. You meet people who would have otherwise just passed you by. You become this space for fun; strangers immediately become friends and the jackets act as a catalyst for interaction. As well as striking appearance, Yolomen emphasise quality; there’s nothing cooler than craftsmanship, right? Our premium fabrics and designs are unique, the jackets are all tailored to custom order and we offer FREE shipping Australia wide. We’re also proud supporters of beyondblue, an Australian organisation working to raise awareness for, and reduce the stigma of, anxiety and depression. At yolomen.com.au, our dazzling jackets are both smart, and totally, brilliantly absurd. That’s the ethos in a nutshell; you only live once, so why wear grey? Yolomen helps to fill the nooks and crannies for now but I'm open to new opportunities!
