TELL US ABOUT YOUR­SELF?

I grew up on the Sun­shine Coast, sur­rounded by the cul­ture of the beach. I have my par­ents to thank for my in­ter­est in men’s fash­ion — they al­ways made sure I was well–dressed when­ever we were in the com­pany of oth­ers. By the time I reached my teenage years, I made my own choices re­gard­ing cloth­ing and de­vel­oped my own style.

ANY RE­WARD­ING MO­MENTS?

Be­ing in­vited to be an am­bas­sador for a men’s skin­care range in the United King­dom re­cently, would have to be the big­gest high­light for me so far.

I can col­lab­o­rate with well–known de­sign­ers — not only in Aus­tralia, but around the world — and am able to show­case my own style to them.

WHAT ARE YOUR ‘WORDS TO LIVE BY’?

My idol, Tom Ford, once said ‘Dress­ing well is a form of good man­ners’ and I have this as my motto — it res­onates with me, be­cause I was brought up that way.

ANY AD­VICE FOR MEN TO GET STARTED?

No­body is born in a per­fectly tai­lored three–piece suit, or with some mag­i­cal in­tu­ition on how to dress well.

Dress­ing well is a skill that can be de­vel­oped through prac­tice.

Men tend to wear clothes that are too big for them, be­cause it ‘feels more com­fort­able’, or they just don’t know how clothes are sup­posed to fit in the first place.

The sim­plest change you can make, is to start fol­low­ing stylish peo­ple on so­cial me­dia plat­forms like In­sta­gram.

It’ll give you a dou­ble whammy: It’ll ex­pose you to great style and give you in­spi­ra­tion, and will cre­ate an en­vi­ron­ment where dress­ing well is nor­mal.
