On a warm September afternoon, George John kicked back in a downtown Dallas studio with the latest issue of People Magazine and waited for his turn with hair and makeup. Meanwhile, Fabian Castillo struck a pose in a nearby mirror and Jonathan Top checked the fit on his handmade Italian suit. Zach Loyd, dressed in a Canali suit and Ermenegildo Zenga shirt and coat, demonstrated a few juggling tricks while he waited for his teammates to join him on the set of their latest gig.
The four FC Dallas players should have looked out of place in the photographer’s studio, but they each transitioned from athlete to model with ease. With multiple looks already pulled for each of them and a little assistance from the shoot’s directors, the foursome showed off both office and weekend wear from some of today’s top men’s designers. The photos were recently published in Pockets’ 2012 Holiday magazine, available in store at Pockets Menswear in Highland Park Village. The magazine features a six-page center spread of the players, as well as individual shots on additional pages. Whether it’s to pick up a copy of the magazine, or to do a little holiday shopping, it’s worth a trip to Highland Park Village this holiday season.
You can check out the six-page spread below, but you'll have to pick up a copy of the magazine from Pockets to see all the additional photos.
