Fashion icon BOSS, formerly known as Hugo Boss, prides itself on a history of sleek, upscale design in menswear, a GQ look that is both fashion-forward and business elite. Now they are moving into active outerwear styles, even adding a splash of color, for clothes that look good on the move.

Our fearless model this month is John O’Rourke, vice president for First American Bank in Coral Gables. O’Rourke has been active in the South Florida Business Community for more than 32 years, initially as a private banker with the Northern Trust Company. He has been featured in national and local news outlets, including U.S. News & World Report, The South Florida Business Journal, Smart Asset, and Magnify Money. Today he is Private Banking VP and Wealth Advisor for First American.

O’Rourke remains actively involved in the local community and is the Immediate Past Chair of The Coral Gables Community Foundation and former Chair of the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce. He is also an avid motorcyclist, which is why we thought he was perfect for the new, more aggressively outdoor wear at BOSS, in addition to the smooth business garb the brand excels at.
