Your winner – Phil
We love Phil’s individuality. Never one to shy away from an accessory or an unusual piece, Phil clearly knows his own style, it is unique, and celebrates his individualism. And that beard………
Phil tells us “I’ve been obsessed with clothes since I was a child and I’ve always loved getting dressed up. I learnt to sew as a teen and after high school attended an academy for fashion design. I still sew (I’ve got something in the works as we speak) but mostly I just love clothes”
Where does Phil get his inspiration from? “I find my style inspiration in many places in life but I’m often most inspired when looking to the past. Life is all about the details and fashion is no exception. But most of all I dress to feel good, and that’s something I’ll never compromise on. Feeling good = looking good” We couldn’t agree more!

Your runner up – Ben
Ben is a young guy who clearly enjoys a more elegant style. Often in a bow tie, he certainly lives up to his Instagram name.
So who is Ben and what are his influences? “I am a Los Angeles native who is passionate about music, classical piano specifically, and fashion. I was introduced to finer, dapper fashion upon competing against a fellow pianist and friend. He served as my mentor and help in finding my identity and style”
How would Ben describe his style? “My personal style is based on being edgy and flashy, both in casual and dapper fashion; I however do have my calmer days

Your runner up – Alex
We liked Alex’s classic style. well curated and confident in his approach to dressing he looks great in well tailored suits and blazers.
We asked Alex to tell us about his style “It’s been a transformation over the last 12 months. I wanted to really express myself and became quite bored with having the stock-standard two suits and many different ties. Opening up to the world of sartorialism and expression was fantastic”
“Today I enjoy making myself feel great. A gent should feel good about what he wears and it does wonders for confidence. I take pride in the fact that a lot of men (and women) notice what I wear because it stands out amongst the black-suit wearing droves of Sydney business life. I like to stamp my character and persona in what I wear; something that matches my personality” Well said Alex!
