How do you select your clothing every morning?

I pick out whatever happens to be clean (I’m terrible with laundry).

Please describe your style in three words.

Still constantly evolving.

What is the biggest mistake one can make when getting dressed?

I can’t stand socks with sandals.

Do you believe in role models?

Sure, why not; it’s nice to have something to aspire to.

What are your favourite fabrics?

I’m more of a metal person.

Are there any style combinations that you object to?

Socks with sandals.

Which city has the best-dressed men?


Would you say that you are conservative or bold?

Somewhere in between.

What are the rules in the way you dress?

Look sexy at all times.

Celebrities and style...

Don’t necessarily go hand-in-hand.

Name one garment/accessory that you can never have enough of?

My good-luck ring.

A man should always look like…

He isn’t trying too hard.

Who taught you what you know about style?

My mom.

What is your biggest regret?

I’m still only 25, it’d be sad if I already had regrets.

Do you have any shopping rituals?

I give myself thirty minutes max; if during that time I haven’t found anything I give up and leave it to another day.

We will never see you wearing...

Birkenstocks, ever.

The most stylish person you have ever seen...

I forget.

What is the first thing you notice on a man?

His fingers.

Which new designers do you follow/admire and why?

Fernando Jorge, I just love his work.

The only article of clothing that a man needs to pay close attention to is…

His underwear.

What are the most treasured items in your wardrobe?

My jewellery.

Is comfort an enemy of style?

Not necessarily.

Which fashion house never fails to impress you?

Alexander McQueen.

Who would you like to recommend for My Style?

Someone more stylish than me.

The best words of advice you have ever heard?

If you can’t convince them, confuse them.
