What are you wearing?

I’m wearing a Zara blazer (€99), shirt from Reiss at Arnotts (€120), Levi’s jeans from BT2 (€110) and Prada shoes from Brown Thomas (€450).

Describe your style in three words?

Simple but well-dressed.

How long does it take you to get dressed in the morning?

About 40 minutes for shower, hair and well-ironed clothes.

Fashion or function — which word best describes your attitude to clothes and why?

Both really. Quality is everything. I don’t mind paying for it, but I appreciate good quality clothes that last.

What’s your biggest source of style inspiration?

Has to be Givenchy — Ricardo Tisci is an amazing guy and he gave me my first big job, but I also keep an eye on catwalks and see what’s coming.

Where do you like to shop?

Zara mostly, but also BT2, Arnotts and Brown Thomas.

Who or what is Ireland’s greatest undiscovered gem?

A lot of lads don’t realise that BT2 stocks good menswear.

Why does your style/outfit work?

It’s clean and simple but sophisticated at the same time.
