Tell us about your outfit?
My outfit today is based on my love for old-world Latin America. Think clean-cut Cuban.
I’m wearing a rusty red 1970’s Farah poly over-shirt with a pair of stone cutoffs from Penneys, a white shirt from River Island with grey suede basket weave tassel loafers and topped off with a vintage Major UK grey felt hat.
How would you describe your personal style?
My style is a mish-mash and hard to define. It takes influence from 60’s British mods and skinheads, for their aggressive style, and mixed with some Italian flair for those clean tailored lines and a healthy dose of old world Americana.
What was the highlight of your summer?
Hands down it was Sea Sessions. I spent four days with my closest friends in beautiful Bundoran, surfing, skating, with great food and cold beers. Couldn’t ask for more. Photographs: Patrick Quinn Byrne
