Model for The Peak Agency

How would you describe your style?
No matter the season, I tend to dress in a relaxed style. I put comfort first in the jeans and layers I choose. If I like something, it fits me well, and it’s
easy to wear, I tend to pick it up in many colors.

What style trend do you miss?
I really miss narrow ties because they instantly made a guy look cool, and they remind me of the rock groups and new wave music groups I loved when I was a bit younger. I am really happy to see them make a comeback; I wish I hadn’t gotten rid of all of mine.

Who is your style icon?
Indiana Jones. What’s not to like? He’s an action hero who dresses comfortably to get the job done, most notably in that iconic leather jacket and hat. If I could make anything popular again for a man’s wardrobe, it would be hats.

Do you have a fashion habit?
You can tell a lot about a person by the condition of their shoes, so I tend to pay a lot of attention to what’s on my feet. It’s really important to have a shine on your shoes to keep them looking great, and I don’t like seeing guys wearing shoes that are all scratched up with bad-looking laces. I think it’s a habit I picked up during my service days.
