Lifestyle: Filipe Likes The Sporting Gent

Anyone who knows OLE MASON JAR co-founder Filipe Ho, knows that he is not your average Joe. His never-meet-a-stranger attitude, boundless energy, and unique style are an intense combination not to be ignored. To know Filipe, is to love him; which is why we have decided to devote this summer to delving into the innermost workings (ahem– organized chaos) that is Filipe Ho.

As promised, we are checking in with Filipe to find out exactly what he is up to this summer. This month, we found Filipe in the Myers Park area of Charlotte at our local retail partner for OLE MASON JAR goods, The Sporting Gent.

Tucked into the back of Colony Shopping Center off Selwyn Avenue, The Sporting Gent is Charlotte’s premier gentlemen’s clothier and outfitter. It is the perfect spot to pick up a unique gift for a true gentleman, find a new accessory, or get OLE MASON JAR gear exclusive in the store. From the moment Quinn, resident mascot and golden retriever, greets you at the door, to the friendly staff and southern sophisticated décor, you will feel right at home. While the relationship between OLE MASON JAR and The Sporting Gent is reciprocal, Filipe has found that it has quickly become his personal favorite place to discover something just off the beaten path. Check out Filipe in action at his most recent visit.

Want more Filipe? Be on the lookout as we find out more of “Filipe’s Likes” this summer! We know there is so much we could cover about Filipe, but the summer is only so long. If you have any specific questions about what Mr. Ho is up to, please send topic suggestions to: We may just write about it!
