The phrase, ‘Keeping up with the Joneses’, originates from a variety of different sources, the most prominent one being the comic strip of the same name by cartoonist Arthur R ‘Pop’ Mohamand forced his proginist to constantly compare himself to his affluent neighbours. Mark Twain, the author of Huckleberry Finn wrote an essay titled ‘Corn Pone Opinions’, in 1901 about the very same topic. It is believed that its initial origins are relating to particularly affluent American families based in New York. The concept of making sure that you are as good or better than your peers still exists today and is easily maintained by the quality and branding of clothing you choose to wear.
Jack and Jones – Made in Denmark
In 1989 the clever Danes decided that keeping up with the Joneses was as simple as designing good quality reasonably priced clothes with their name emblazoned all over it. Designed for the well educated and contemporary wearer the brand is held in high esteem with a reputation for being Europe’s best fashion brand for jeans. Jack & Jones have developed a variety of different styles of clothing and have given them interesting names to define them; Vintage, Premium, Originals, Core and Tech.
