1. Name/Age/Occupation?
Laurence/29... pushing 30/Engineer.

2. Tell me about one thing you're wearing.
My green blazer, I bought it on Asos for a very reasonable price and I really like the texture and colour. It's a bit different but not extreme. Larry's top tip: When buying blazers online, I recommend to always buy a size too big and have it tailored to fit you, too much risk going for your actual size!

3. What influences the way you dress?
I regard my style as affluent chic (I've been told I dress a bit American and a bit preppy). I'm a sucker for chinos, a polo shirt and a good blazer and some funky socks. Other than that, I don't go in search of anything in particular, I know I like it when I see it. If I think it looks good on me I buy it.

4. When do you feel best in what you're wearing?
Funnily enough, on a day just like today! A nice sunny Saturday, strolling around Galway lapping up the atmosphere and meeting good friends for good food and even better coffee.

5. Last question... Galway or Dublin (style-wise)?
Galway. Dublin is a bit more on trend or á la mode but Galway is more subtle and individual, which I admire. Too many sheep in Dublin, Galway is full of shepherds 😉 (ps. I'm allowed say this because I'm from Dublin).
