What do you enjoy most about being an entrepreneur?
Having full control over my destiny. I love being able to call the shots and make the decisions that will ultimately determine the success or failure of my business.
Which item in your wardrobe do you wear most often?
A classic, tailored navy blue three-piece suit. It’s easy to dress up or down for a business meeting and also works for red-carpet events, weddings and cocktail parties.
Who’s your dream client?
Trevor Noah, who’s raised the South African flag through his career as a stand-up comedian and being appointed host of The Daily Show in the USA. The shoes of his predecessor were big ones to fill, but he rose to the challenge and excelled. I’m inspired by his success and achievements.
How would you describe your style?
Style is a way of expressing your character without having to introduce yourself, so I’m a bad-ass mofo who always keep it simple, but significant!
What do you really covet for your wardrobe?
At least one tuxedo from a famous international tailor like David Pettit-Frère from Musika Frere.
How did you become a brand influencer?
It was a natural progression. I’ve always believed that, for a man, being stylish is about the details. Pairing a custom-made suit with a timepiece or a bracelet complements your style and expresses your character. I think the brands I collaborate with have seen the potential for us to be a perfect match.
What’s coming up next for you, career-wise?
For the past few months, I’ve been working on handcrafted bespoke shoes. They’re manufactured in Barcelona, Spain, and the production process take six to eight weeks, so I’m trying to strategise solutions for them to be virtually customised and fitted for clients.
