Happy 50th Paul, our stylish general manager

Style’s leading man is turning 50 this month. To celebrate we’ve picked his brain (or the brains of the girls in the office) for a tongue-in-cheek take on all things fashion.

What is it like working in an office dominated by female fashionistas?

I don’t find it difficult at all! Usually they are coming to me for fashion advice. I do what I can!

How would you describe your style?

Quirky with a touch of glamour. Style is all about your personality and I ooze it!

Your colleagues have described you as a young Bruce Willis. Who is your celebrity style icon?

I really admire our Prime Minister, Tony Abbott’s guts to rock the speedo. You really can’t go past a nice pair of Budgie Smugglers and any man who is comfortable enough to wear them is a style icon of mine.

Have you ever entered Fashions on the Field?

No comment.

Do you follow any fashion rules?

No. There are no rules! I just click the heels of my red loafers together three times and feel at home in pretty much every outfit.

What do you like to wear on the weekends?

I like a comfortable pair of jeans with the loudest shirt I can find in my wardrobe. Hawaii is nice all year round, am I right?

What’s your favourite thing about Brisbane?

I’m all about the vast cultural experiences on offer in our great city. Espresso martinis at The Kitty, Tahitian rum punch at Alfred & Constance, apple whiskeys at Lefty’s or a Pipsqueak pear cider at Sixes and Sevens… and of course, Patrón shots 
at Casablanca.

Do you have any fashion advice for guys heading into a female dominated industry?

It is important to always stand out and give the girls a run for their money! More is more in my books.

Do you prefer:

Boxers or briefs? Commando.
Short back and sides or a little scruffy?  I am rocking the hair free look at the moment. Bald is beautiful!
Smart suits or cool casual? Definitely cool casual, I am the King of Cool!

Happy 50th birthday Paul - please don’t fire us!
Love from all of the girls at Style!
