Get ready to meet another of our DownEast campus brand ambassadors! In our interview with Utah Valley University junior Aaron Jaynes, he talks about what DownEast has to offer for men, and also about the “special lady” in his life. So let’s get to know Aaron!
Who is your favorite band/singer?
This isn’t even a contest – my favorite band of all time is Electric Mayhem!! Their style is so unique.
What era would you like to revisit again from a style perspective?
I feel like I was born just a little too late! I would’ve loved to be a teenager in the 1980s. I consider the style to be “controlled chaos.” At first glance, outfits seemed to be comprised of whatever the person had on their floor that morning, but when you look a little closer there is definitely a method to the madness.
What does being a DownEast brand ambassador mean to you?
I was pleasantly surprised to find out what DownEast offers in the way of clothing for men. Like many of the guys I’ve talked to, I only thought DownEast carried items for women. I’ve loved having the opportunity to educate guys on the fact that not only does DownEast carry clothes for men, it has some amazing designers to choose from, as well.
What is your favorite class this semester?
I really enjoyed my Infancy and Childhood Development class that I had this semester. I’m a fairly new dad (my daughter turns one next Saturday) and I loved learning about the developmental stages that she is currently in. It truly opened my eyes to all the amazing things children go through during the early stages of life.
Where did you go on your last vacation?
Instead of talking about where I went on my last vacation, I’m going to talk about where my wife and I plan to go on our next BIG vacation! As I mentioned before, our daughter is almost a year old and we are having so much fun introducing her to new things. We are dying to take her to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. My wife and I adore the books and can’t wait to take a vacation to Florida to go to it. We realize that since our daughter is only one, it will be quite some time before we can take her there, but we certainly get excited thinking about it.
