The aes­thetic in­spi­ra­tions of Tay­lor Hill

This mu­si­cian keeps his look long, lean and fiercely his own

Toronto Life - - News -

Tay­lor Hill, the drum­mer for the Young Empire, de­scribes his aes­thetic as “self-con­scious.” Since he was a teenager, he’s seen fashion as an op­por­tu­nity to ex­press his in­di­vid­u­al­ity. “In Grade 7, my mom took me to the Gap for my birth­day,” he says with a sigh. “She made me buy lots of stuff, and I re­fused to wear any of it. Even then, it drove me crazy when I saw some­one in the same shirt as me.” In the past, Hill pledged al­le­giance to all things Yves Saint Lau­rent; these days, he’s in­spired by Steve McQueen’s clas­sic looks, though at six foot five, he al­lows that clothes look dif­fer­ent on him than they do on other clotheshorses. “It’s a lit­tle harder to make things look good when you’re ba­si­cally stand­ing on stilts,” he says.
