HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Tailored, athletic and sophisticated. I like simplicity with an element of difference. I definitely like to look sharp.
WERE YOU STYLISH FROM A YOUNG AGE?
I think I’ve always had an interest in style. I remember not being very happy when my mum tried to send me to school in a pair of shoes I thought weren’t very “stylish”. For a six year old, I’m not sure if that’s knowing style or being a brat.
DID YOU STEP IT UP WHEN YOU STARTED PLAYING PROFESSIONAL RUGBY?
I’d say my approach to style changes as I get more exposed to the spotlight. But, my tastes essentially stay the same.
DO YOU DRESS WELL EVERY DAY KNOWING YOU MAY BE SPOTTED OR STOPPED FOR A PHOTO?
On a normal day I keep it simple and dress for comfort, that way I’m ready for anything, because I’m happy with what I’m wearing.
WHAT'S YOUR GO-TO WEEKEND LOOK?
Converse Chuck Taylor shoes, a cool pair of shorts, plain t-shirt, my Tendence watch and a hat.
WHAT'S YOUR MOST DISLIKED FASHION FAUX PAS?
White shoes and white belts - the worst.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE BRISBANE MEN'S STORE?
Pistols @ Dawn and Tendence Watches.
DO YOU PREFER… BOXERS OR BRIEFS?
SMART SUITS OR COOL CASUAL?
Depends on the occasion… But I’ll say cool casual.
SHORT BACK AND SIDES OR A LITTLE SCRUFFY?
Short back and sides.
