How would you define your personal dress sense at this stage of the game?
I look like a c***.
What’s the difference, for you between fashion and style?
It’s the difference between knowing how to make sure they both get along when you take them out for the day.
How important is it to be up to the minute?
Very. But you don’t need to look like an after shave ad or a footballer.
Most regretted personal fashion move?
Snakeskin cowboy boots.
Any favourite labels?
Loads to be honest. ACG at the minute. APC. That kinda stuff.
Dressing down. The luxury scruff aesthetic. Any thoughts?
Do it right, it looks good. Like anything.
What tiny “detail” rules, if any, do you apply to yourself?
Balance posh stuff with cheaper stuff. Insult each bit of your uniform. Haha.
Your top style icons?
Changes. At the minute it’s Alex Cameron. He came up to Notts to do some recording at the studio we normally use. He wore a regular Reebok sweatshirt and some dead normal stonewashed jeans with some clapped out Nikes on. Note special. Then I noticed a big old red ruby stuck in this ring on his finger. I thought “Woah … That’s how you do it.”
