What’s your craft? Apprentice hat maker.
Song you can’t get out of your head? Outkast - Hey Ya / D’Angelo v Beyonce - Untitled Rocket (How Does It Feel Mash Up) / The Internet - Shadowdance / Miles Davis - Sunshine
Describe your Fashion style? Hat always comes first. I would always start with the hat and work out my outfit from there. You could also describe it as british gentleman with a twist (playful).
What’s your main source of inspiration + influence? My father. He has been a rock within the family andI admire him because he is consistent in everything he does and he doesn’t believe in the word “can’t”.
Your ideal day off? Hanging out with friends and family. Eating, drinking tea and possibly hat shopping too!
Plans for 2014? Just to continue with pushing the movement ‘Hat About Town’ and to find more adventures for Mr Hat.
What you like about The Stooki Movement? The thing I love about it is that you guys are very focused. You remind me of the Japanese who are always one step ahead. Also I feel you are confident within yourselves. What I love the most is the abilty to inhabit different environments! Your community approach is not selfish, you always get people involved which shows your passion for the brand. You guys are like the grandparents, always inviting everybody in!! To sum up in one word: consistency.
Where can people see more of your work?
