I AM IN Etihad Stadium, Docklands.
I run guest houses with my wife in NSW.
I AM WEARING a traditionally 1930s outfit: white shirt, tweed waistcoat, brown baggy pants and chocolate coloured shoes.
MY STYLE IS a mix of the ’20s, ’30s and ’40s. My wife and I are big fans of that era, we have a vintage car and earlier this year we travelled to Napier, New Zealand for the art deco festival. There were about 40,000 people there, many of whom were dressed in ’20s and ’30s attire.
I ADMIRE THE STYLE OF Cary Grant, Clarke Gable and Frank Sinatra.
MY FAVOURITE PLACES TO SHOP I actually get most of my outfits tailor made in Sydney by a tailor who specialises in vintage fashion.
MY BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE WAS the 7’0s. The bell-bottoms. The worst outfit I had was a pair of high-waisted, sky-blue pants with six buttons up the top and laces on the bell-bottoms. I wore them with American platform boots and a pink shirt. And I had a mullet. It was very David Bowie, fire red and long at the back.
WHEN I WAS A KID I WORE good clothes actually. I did have good clothes all the way through, apart from the ’70s. The ’50s were great and I wore a lot of ’50s clothes, which were Elvis-inspired, right the way through the ’60s and ’70s. Jackets, shirts and baggy pants. Hence I like the more tailored tops and baggy pants now.
I WOULD NEVER BE CAUGHT DEAD IN tracksuits. Tracky dacks, no way.
