Please tell us a little about yourself?
I am a 31-year-old Australian; I live in the Australian Capital Canberra with my beautiful wife and six-month-old son. Canberra is a small town compared to others, but I love the culture and the emerging fashion scene here, and I’m glad to be a part of it.
How do you stay updated on the current trends?
My primary source is the internet, primarily Instagram and I subscribe to a large number of men’s fashion blogs to try and keep up to date.
At what age did you start becoming fascinated with fashion?
I was a late bloomer regarding fashion; I only let myself become immersed in it in the last two years. Maybe getting older I started to appreciate the subtleties of men’s fashion.
What inspired you to start your blog?
There was not one thing that inspired me to start my page. However, I am constantly encouraged by followers and small brands who support me.
What piece of clothing do you spend your money on the most?
For me, a suit is the item of clothing I spend the most time in, having something that fits perfectly and made of a material that breathes in both the summer and winter are essential.
Who would you say is your number one fashion inspiration?
I really can’t name one person. I have different inspirations for various styles, and I’m constantly on the lookout for inspiration.
Do you read fashion magazines?
If I am travelling or going to be without access to my favourite blogs, I’ll pick up a magazine to pass the time. My Australian favourites are GQ Australia or Men’s Style Magazine
Do you think it is important for men to wear fashionable clothes?
I believe it’s important to be confident if wearing fashionable clothes is the path for people to be more confident, I think everyone should do it.
Which do you prefer bespoke or off the rack clothing?
I wish I had the budget for bespoke. At the moment, I wear all made to measure suits as I, like everyone am not the average size. If you can’t afford made-to-measure, you should wear off the rack clothing and visit your friendly tailor often.
How would you describe your blogging style?
I like to show off my style which is more classic menswear and suiting, and I try to promote smaller Australian brands.
Instagram or snap chat?
I’m a massive fan of Instagram; I spend way to much time on the platform.
What do you do in your spare time?
I’m a dad with a six-month-old; I don’t think I have any spare time anymore. Any chance I get I am spending it with him and my wife.
Do you wear jewellery?
I always wear a watch. I’m not a fan of always using your phone to check the time. It doesn’t need to be the most expensive, but something that matches your style and your outfit at the time. I also wear my wedding ring but ordinarily not any other pieces of jewellery.
What is your most valuable piece of jewellery?
One of my watches. I have a fantastic watch from Australian watchmaker Melbourne Watch which is most likely my most expensive and my current favourite.
What is one thing your readers would be surprised to hear?
I wore braces up until about six months ago. I never had braces as a kid and felt self-conscious about my teeth. Getting them at a mature age was a significant decision, but my confidence has skyrocketed since.
Have you met anyone interesting/famous on your blogging journey?
No famous people yet but getting to meet a lot of the individuals who have the same interests as me at events is always exciting and reminds me why I enjoy doing it so much.
What is the biggest difference in your life post-blogging?
No real difference, but I do have days around the house when I am doing jobs and just being a father. I am usually in a pair of work boots, jeans and a flannel.
Is blogging your profession or just a hobby?
Blogging is just a hobby for me. I love fashion, but I don’t know if it will ever become more than just a hobby or if I would want it too.
Do you think it is important to be in fashion?
I believe it’s important to do what makes you happy, whether that’s working a blue-collar job, working in a law firm or being a stay at home parent.
What are some of the strangest fashions you have seen?
I’m not sure; I try to be open to everything knowing that not everything is going to suit my style, but there will be someone out there that it does.
What colours do you think look good on you?
I love the classic look of a navy or charcoal suit. I believe this classic style suits most men and I wear one whenever I need to feel confident.
What kind of clothes are in men’s fashion now?
For me, it’s classic suits. Double breasted or wide peak lapels. We are getting away from the slim cut; skinny tie fits of a few years ago. I’m also loving that Paisley is making a big resurgence.
What kind of clothes do you usually wear?
I spent at least forty hours a week in a suit so for me that what it is. That’s why I make sure they are good quality and comfortable. The same goes for my shoes.
What’s the most expensive piece of clothing you have ever bought?
Again it would be one of my suits; I don’t look for something that’s expensive I look for quality and also value for money.
What’s your favourite colour of shoes?
I love brown shoes. I think every man should probably have a plain black pair of shoes as their number one, but my next advice would find a brown pair you love.
Fashion advise for men?
Wear things that are comfortable and make you feel confident and good about yourself.
Best fashion advice?
Don’t wear something just because someone else does. Be inspired by people, but don’t try and copy them as it won’t always look as good on you as it does on them.
Who takes the majority of your photos?
That would be my wife with my son in tow never too far away.
Do you often buy new clothes?
I try to buy a few staple items at the end of a season or when I can find them at a good price. I try to avoid impulse buying unless I already know I have several outfits I can wear the piece with.
How would you describe your personal style?
Hopefully just classic and traditional men’s style.
What would you say that is the greatest satisfaction of being a men’s wear fashion blogger? (Invitations to fashion events, interaction with people, gifts, etc.)
Honestly, for me, it is getting to meet all sorts of individuals who share a passion. Sometimes I will have people DM me asking for advice on menswear, and it always feels good to help them out and give them the confidence in what they are wearing.
