  • FAVOURITE CITY

    London for the people. New York for the energy. Los Angeles for the weather.

  • TRAVEL TIP

    Commit to an airline, get its credit card, rack up their air miles and enjoy the upgrades.

  • FAVOURITE BRAND

    Oliver Spencer - because his aesthetic is my aesthetic and going into one of his stores is like walking into my ideal dressing room. I do also wear a lot of Folk, YMC, Albam.

  • FAVOURITE SHOES

    For sneakers, it has to be Nike, obviously - my collection is getting out of control. For shoes and boots, Grenson is a go-to.

  • GROOMING

    Patricks M1 pomade. I love the smell and the texture, and Patrick used to be my barber when I lived in Sydney.

  • STYLE TIP

    If in doubt, dress up: it's always better to be slightly overdressed than slightly undressed.
