Hello beautiful ones! How is everyone doing this glorious Monday? I saw a friend of mine with the hashtag “TGIM” on his Instagram earlier today. In case you are wondering “TGIM” stands for “thank God it’s Monday”, I smiled when I saw that. It’s not everyday you see that because not too many people are excited about Mondays, but we love Mondays right?  I haven’t done a male feature for Monday Male Feature (MMF) in a while and I am glad to let you know the male features are back, can I get an Amen? Lol,are you ready for today’s male feature? Let’s get into it.

Male feature number 3 Hello! Tell us something about yourself.

My name is Corey Jamal Hayes. I’m 28 years old. I hold A Bachelors of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Bethune-Cookman University. I work with young adults within an Independent Living program, helping them with basic living skills, job skills and financial management as well as providing educational oversight, spiritual guidance and emotional management. I started Core Concepts in the early months of 2015, Core Concepts specializes in Menswear consulting and styling. I enjoy Music & Sports in my spare time. I’m also involved in the music ministry at my church, where I play the bass guitar. I’m a laid back guy who enjoys style, works hard & loves to laugh! I am Corey Jamal Hayes. 


Thank you for introducing yourself , awesome introduction that was. The next question is, how would you describe your style?

If I could describe my style in one word it would be comfortable. I like to be comfortable in anything I’m wearing, I feel it is most important when it comes to ones personal style. It has a big effect on your confidence, which I feel is second most important. 

 I like what you said about being comfortable and it’s importance and how it brings confidence. I always say confidence is key!



Thank you for that! What or who inspires or influences your style?

I’m inspired by a number of things.. My Dad always wore suits & growing up I thought it was the lamest thing ever but as I got older, he inspired me to step out of the box & try it, been hooked ever since. I’m also inspired by today’s fellow Gentlemen who are comfortable & confident in their styles,  dressed appropriately enough to walk into any arena & make a positive statement. 


 The one thing every man should have…..

The one thing every Man should have is A Woman (Proverbs 18:22). A Man can never go wrong with A Queen by His side! Lol, I’m churchy & old school! 

That response! I must say I wasn’t ready for that, remarkable! 


What are some of your closet favorites?

I would say my closet favorites would be A pair of Cole Haan Shoes which I have yet to wear ( 🙂 saving for the Fall) & it could be any one of my ties, I favor the tie selection in my closet, it’s truly a blessing! Lol


Wasn’t that just awesome? Lol. Well I’d like to thank Corey for taking time to answer my questions and for agreeing to be part of this. I really appreciate it. Check out more pictures of Corey below and if you’d like to check out more of his style follow him on Instagram : coreyjayhayes. You’re welcome lol. Enjoy!
