Get to know the talent from our latest television commercial, Military

military style

It’s high winter but that doesn’t mean your style should get sloppy. Stay warm while looking put together by dressing up in the season's biggest trend for men: military.

We’ve already unpacked the military trend for you at length in our series on military inspired clothing (check the sidebar), and this time round we've asked the talent from our latest TVC to give us their take on the style while telling us a little bit more about themselves.

Describe military style.

The clothing is dope. Period. Everything I’ve worn so far is dope. Military style is just clean pressed where everything is ironed out, steamed and stuff, and just really clean.

How would you incorporate the military trend into your existing style?

I already button all my shirts all the way to the top, so there’s already military in my style, and then I guess it’s more a thing of wearing the chino pants instead of my usual ripped jeans.

Why is this a trend that will work for winter?

The trend works well for winter as you can layer things up really easily. If you’re wearing something thin you can add some more things on top and wear those together.

What’s your favourite emoji?

The black heart because when you send it to girls they’re like, 'Ooh, he’s so mysterious!', and I’m like, 'Yeah, I’m mysterious...'

Describe military style.

Lots of camo, especially camo pants, and those massive puffy jackets.

How would you incorporate the military trend into your existing style?

It’s new to me, but I’d definitely wear it because I like a looser pair of pants and as a skater they’d work well for that.

Why is this a trend that will work for winter?

I think it can work for every season. It just keeps coming back. Looking better every time.

The next big thing is?

The States. Everyone has told me how big the market over there is. Those agencies are waiting for me and I think that’s the next big thing for me. It will be tough, there’s a lot of competition, but I’m ready for it.

What song do you want to be playing when you walk into the club?

Any Lil Wayne song. I love Lil Wayne. That guy’s dope.

Describe military style.

It basically means action. I really love the games – fighting, weapons and stuff – but the outfits are good, too.

How would you incorporate the military trend into your existing style?

I already wear a lot of camouflage and then I have boots that are awesome and some really big jackets.

Why is this a trend that will work for winter?

The clothing is quite oversized, the material is really thick, the boots are warmer than shoes, so when you combine all of these with normal clothes you’re a lot more protected from the elements.

Describe your downtime style.

Depends on where I’m going, because usually it’s easy vibes but if I’m going to a party then my game is more tight, and my swag is more up. If it’s a formal occasion it will be a suit with an easy sneaker and pants cuffed at the ankle. If it’s an easy party then slim fit jeans, polo neck, denim jacket.

Describe your workout plan.

I’ve never been to the gym. In the morning I’ll do pushups, some sit-ups, and that’s enough.

How many times a day do you look at your phone?

All day. If it’s close to me I’m looking at it and if it’s not then I’m looking for it.
