It can be helpful, at the start of a great party, to make a few introductions. And while some of the gentlemen featured in this spread may already be known to you, please allow us a bit of formality. We’re at the beginning of something big.
Jon Gray, Ricardo Laguna and Omar Galeano
This month, Modern Luxury, the owners of this magazine, launches mensbook.com. The first thing to do, we decided, was to get some conversations started with the men in Las Vegas—the fellows who have a strong hand in making the city such a vibrant, stylish and exciting place to live. Please meet Jon Gray, the former general manager of Palms Casino Resort, who also happens to be a husband with three young children. Say hello to professional BMX athlete Ricardo Laguna, who never misses the chance to support a good cause. And, of course, you must get to know Omar Galeano, the vice president of business affairs at the MAC Agency who also coordinates entertainment for MGM Resorts International. In the coming months, you’ll be hearing a lot more about them—and from them. They have been tapped as inaugural members of The Committee, a council of gents across the country who will lend their knowledge to mensbook.com.
Mensbook.com will be a curated resource, a go-to place for the finest products the luxury market has to offer. We’ll bring you the latest watches, wines and spirits. We’ll take the latest automobiles for a spin and try on the newest collections from top men’s designers. We’ll deliver gorgeous spaces designed to inspire your own home. Maybe even offer some gift-giving advice. Plus, much more.
Please say hello. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
