Mr Smith's Recommendations

FAVOURITE RESTAURANT AND DISH

Rockpool Bar And Grill, Sydney. It’s the GQ Australia team's favourite restaurant to hold court. Would suggest everything, as long as it’s the steak.”

BEST BAR

Lotus in Sydney or Match Bar & Grill in Melbourne.”

note

VACATION CHOICE

“Island hopping in the Whitsundays (off the coast of Queensland). Paradise on our own doorstep and the best in luxury hospitality.”

TOP CITY

“Barcelona. You can lose yourself to the city and the culture (and the shopping) without ever feeling ready to leave.”

note

FAVOURITE HOTEL

“Grand Hyatt for business. Alila Hotels for modern holiday luxury.”

note

TYPE OF BAG

“Was using a LV Keepall, but looking for more organisation in my life, so just optioned a navy blue Prada briefcase.”

note

FAVOURED BRAND

“Tomas Maier for Bottega Veneta for his colours, contours and control. Tom Ford for his rejuvenation of the elegant gentlemen.”

ESSENTIAL WARDROBE ITEM

Burberry Prorsum trench. Great protection against the increasingly temperamental Australian weather.”

MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

“At the moment, Australian model Nicole Trunfio; incredibly alluring. After her, my mum.”

STYLE ICON

“1950s Elvis. (NB: Not 70s). Refined rockabilly – it’s a go-to classic look.”

note

STYLE TIP

“Discover the benefit of a tailor-made suit.”

TAILOR

P. Johnson in Sydney is my tailor. Savile Row trained but Australian made.”

note

BEST SHIRT BRAND

“Baubridge & Kay or Harrolds.”

note

FAVOURITE SUIT

“I like Gucci for their retro fitted cuts. Other than that, my tailor Patrick Johnson. He’d kill me if I said otherwise.”

note

CUT OF TROUSERS

“Flat front, narrow leg chinos. I’m a brand slut when it comes to chinos. I can never have enough in different colours.”

note

JEANS BRAND

“Indigo, straight leg, low cut. The Australian brand Ksubi is world class.”

note

UNDERWEAR CHOICE

“Jockey style Calvin Klein Underwear . I grew up in the 80s and 90s so they stuck.”

note

PREFERRED JACKET STYLE

“Two button, peak lapel, double vent. Love one buttons too, to elongate my torso. I’m not that tall.”

note

SHOE MAKER

“Loafer, loafer, loafers. They are versatile and comfortable and easy to put on.”

note

FAVOURITE GROOMING PRODUCT

“I think fragrance is key to finishing off a look. I change them daily to mix things up.”

DREAM CAR

“Vintage Volvo P1800 – Simon Templar’s car in The Saint. Love it.”

WATCH BRAND

“Whatever is in the office to shoot for a couple of days. I like IWC – classic and manly. Hublot and Bell & Ross for their clear distinction in the marketplace.”

ESSENTIAL GADGET

“Never thought I’d be a guy who couldn’t live without a gadget, but I am getting hooked on the iPad.”

BEST BOOK

“Catcher in the Rye.”

FAVOURITE ALBUM

“Oh dear, this is revealing. I’m a compilation lover. Anything soul or Motown with Otis or Aretha.”
