From the beaches of Salcombe and Nuntucket to the bright lights of Hong Kong, the JW Seasonnaires have had an incredible summer in our seasonal resorts the world over. Who did you meet this summer?
Next stop? Autumn term at university!
Our seasonnaires across all of our summer locations hosted end of summer parties to celebrate one last time with all of the friends they've made this summer. A massive thank you to everyone who found their way to one of our events, or who spent their summer with sand in their shoes hanging out with a Seasonnaire.
Check out what the camera managed to catch this evening, and cheers to everything it missed...
What's a seasonnaire we hear you cry? Check out what they get up to on their day-to-day here. Whether it be hitting the beach or chasing a sun rise after a night out with friends, they always have something insane going up and up their sleeves for tomorrow. Jealous? We are too.
This July we opened the doors to another store, this time in Chatham, Massachusetts! Our seasonnaires across all locations joined us for a day on the beach followed by the store launch party in the evening. Take a look at what they got up to!
All of the Seasonnaires thought it would be a great idea to host a party to celebrate the middle of summer with everyone they have met thus far. Here's what they got up to from Southampton to Chatham, Nantucket to the Vineyard and Newport!
Summer has begun on the islands, with the first ever Jack Wills Nantucket Formal Fridays. Each week the Nantucket Seasonnaires will pick a new location and put the word out using @jwnantucket. Different every time, they go wherever they want, do whatever they like, and invite everybody who wants to join them. They kicked it off with an all inclusive picnic at the Lily Pond and invited some of their best on the island. The only stipulation? You must come dressed, to the nines.
What's the JW Varsity Polo? Well every year we invite the best of the best universities, we are talking Oxford vs Cambridge, Harvard vs Yale; to compete in a Polo tournament in the Queen's back garden - Guards Polo Club in Windsor, England.
Oh we also invite 5000 of of our friends to come watch too, put on 2 stages with live bands and throw a huge post game party....
This year we sent our Best Summer Job in America winners, Deb & Doug to experience the party in full - see what they got up to
Harvard beat old rivals Yale 5-3.5, in the closest match of the day.
Very well played Harvard, good luck to both teams in their preparations for next year's match.
In the Summer of 2011 we launched the Best Summer Job in America - a competition to win $20,000 and a 6 week internship on Nantucket with our Seasonnaires. Harald Zurakowski from Hobart and William Smith College won the Best Summer Job in America: check out how it went...
Our Martha's Vineyard store team and various Seasonnaires put together a JW fashion show at the YMCA of Martha's Vineyard. Take a look at the pics of our team strutting their stuff.
In July 2011, Jack Wills sponsored The Foundation Polo challenege in Santa Barbara, CA, attended by both British and Hollywood royalty and the JW Seasonnaires.
In May 2011, the JW Seasonnaires crewed 'Deep Cover' in the 40th annual Figawi Race from Hyannis to Nantucket. While we weren't necessarily victorious, we enjoyed the after party nonetheless and will be back in 2012 to claim the win!
After launching our Southampton store, the JW Seasonnaires headed to the Escape to New York music festival to have a go at "glamping" as well as seeing the awesome lineup.
We returned to Nobadeer beach on Nantucket for another celebration of the independence of our US cousins!
At the start of the summer the JW Seasonnaires headed to Newport, RI for the Newport Summer Sevens at Fort Adams. We'd never seen rugby played in Party Pants before or since...
To celebrate the first summer of our Nantucket store, we headed over to Nobadeer beach to join the 4th of July celebrations.
It wasn’t that we were banned from any of the restaurants, we just thought it would be nice to take advantage of the Vineyard’s beaches after hours.
To celebrate the opening of our second store in the US, we had a launch party at the Edgartown store at 1 South Water Street. The JW Seasonnaires and friends were in attendance.
We teamed up with the Cisco Brewery on Nantucket to put on a fashion show showcasing our 2010 Summer Holiday line.
In the Summer of 2009 our Seasonnaires headed out to the East Coast of the US, starting their tour in Martha's Vineyard.
Midsummer days on Nantucket: Nobadeer, beach volleyball, Land Rovers and Party Pants.
Grace and friends took us out and about on the boat to introduce us to island life on Martha's Vineyard.
Our first experience of the Figawi Race weekend. We didn't compete this year but we made sure to take part in the after party!
