"A new company based in Guadeloupe called Coat of Arms is making it easy for many of us West Indians, and all those who love our islands, to wear our hearts on our sleeves, literally and in high style.
Laurent Gerville-Reache, is a native of Guadeloupe. He describes the genesis of the Coat of Arms brand very simply:
We wanted to suggest luxury products deeply inspired from the region.
His friend and business partner, Richard, was regularly frustrated at not finding any high-end clothing items celebrating the Caribbean during his frequent trips to the region.
It was always the brands that you find from NY to Paris and Tokyo – Lacoste, RL, etc., or cheap t-shirts.
So the duo set out to do something about this, designing and producing luxury polo shirts on par with the quality of Lacoste with each design boldly reflecting a specific island’s pride and heritage through the use of a stylized version of its coat of arms.
The striking West Indies Federation polo is one of 13 current Coat of Arms designs, with equally fashionable styles available in men’s and women’s sizes for the U.S. Virgin Islands, Jamaica, Barbados, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, The Bahamas, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Barthelemy, Dominica, Grenada, St. Maarten, and St. Lucia.”

"My name is Fay DeLeon and I’m a Jamaican grandmother who loves to cook for her family. I started making Jamaican cooking lesson videos to teach my daughters how to make traditional Jamaican recipes. Thank you for letting me into your kitchens too!”
Tambrin (lol. the jamaican pronunciation) balls are all right, but its always fun when you have to open the shell and be disappointed because only half of the fruit is suitable to eat. Not to mention struggling with the strings.
The 34-year-old is founder of Devine Men of Choice, an adult entertainment venue for ladies only, located on Old Hope Road in St Andrew.
The company has been around since 2010.
According to Birbridge, the group of 24 dancers caters mainly to ladies of corporate Jamaica between the ages of 25 and 60. They perform throughout the island as well as in Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago.
Birbridge says Devine Men is not about a group of ‘dancing men’ in underwear. Their objective is to destress clients.
He is quick to point out that the service does not go beyond dancing.
"The service doesn’t lend a hand to any form of sexual intercourse and this is stated clearly in the contract that the guys signed. Therefore, it would be instant dismissal if the contract is not honoured," he told the Sunday Observer.
Birbridge says he was first introduced to exotic dancing by a friend while living in New York City several years ago. Initially, he was sceptical.
"I was against it as I thought it was gay. It was years later that I got the courage to visit one of the clubs that he worked and I realised that the patrons were only females," he related. "The venue was packed and the guys made thousands of dollars that night."
After returning to Jamaica in 2010, Birbridge said he and three friends enrolled in a gym to improve their physical appearance. That accomplished, they went into business.
Things have been so good, Devine Men of Choice have rapidly increased their number of dancers. Birbridge says the job is not a song and dance.
"It is very hard work, one that requires lots of hours in the gym. However, when the brand is marketed properly it is very beneficial financially."
