“My style is keeping it simple with an element of difference."

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?

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.

WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU...

On a Saturday night? At Suncorp Stadium.
On a Sunday morning? Breakfast at Picnic in Camp Hill then to the dog park or the farmers markets.
On your next holiday? Bali.
