If there’s anyone who can transform everyday life into something extraordinary, it’s Patrick Janelle. The Instagrammer behind @AGuyNamedPatrick, his account is filled with photos of his day-to-day life, made gorgeous with just the use of an iPhone 6.

 Best Backdrop: The Streets of New York City

Polo Ralph Lauren: Jeans | Bag | Shoes

SAKSPOV: What is it about Polo that resonates so well with your own particular brand image?

Patrick: Polo Ralph Lauren is a classic American brand that strikes the perfect balance between casual and stylish. I’m constantly navigating a variety of social and business settings, and their pieces perfectly suit multiple occasions and environments.

POV: How did your recent shoot for Polo Ralph Lauren come to fruition? Did the clothes dictate the scenery or vice-versa?

Patrick: Since my calendar is always packed with errands, business meetings and trips to various corners of the city, I took a look at my schedule and matched the spring Polo looks with the appropriate New York City backdrops to bring the styles to life.

“Polo Ralph Lauren is a classic American brand that strikes the perfect balance between casual and stylish.” – Patrick Janelle

Polo Ralph Lauren: Trench | Shirt | Pants | Shoes

POV: What’s your creative process like, given that Instagram is such an in-the-moment platform? Do you tend to map things out or let the results happen as organically as possible?

Patrick: In general, I look for inspiration from things around me every day, and I’m always looking to capture things as they unfold. Especially in NYC, where there’s tons of visual input, it’s easy to rush past things and not notice the amazing moments that are simply surrounding us. It’s important to me to stop and notice things that would otherwise be easy to miss.

POV: Tell us, what’s your favorite piece from Polo’s spring collection?

Patrick: The navy trench coat is a great transition piece because it’s especially light weight but has great structure. I also love how casual it is – you can roll it up in your bag and achieve that perfect wrinkle.

5-PATRICK-JANELLE-POLO-POV-Short-Recovered

A Slim-Cut Suit Means Business

Polo Ralph Lauren: Shirt | Tie | Shoes

POV: Any interesting tidbits from your Polo shoot? Any unexpected moments or fun facts about your editorial?

Patrick: Although we were shooting spring looks, it was freezing on the day of the shoot. On one occasion, it was so cold the phone kept shutting down. Multiple times, I had to warm it between my hands to turn it back on and snap a few more pics—before starting the process over again!

POV: What are you looking forward to this spring?

Patrick: This spring I’m launching the The Liquor Cabinet app – a labor of love that I’ve been working on with my brothers for the past year and a half. I’m super excited to see it in the app store and in the hands of users. I’m also taking a road trip through the Southwest with some friends and visiting Japan for the first time, a trip that has long been on my bucket list.
