1. Name/Age/Occupation?
Neil, 22, Psychology student in NUIG.

2. Tell me about one thing you're wearing.
This black bomber jacket has quickly become my favourite item of clothing. It's from Cos, like all my other recent buys. I really like the contrast between the two textures. It's definitely not practical for Galway's rainy weather but that has never stopped me before.

3. What influences the way you dress?
I think I'm most influenced by what those around me are wearing. Not necessarily that I would copy their style but more appreciate their individual pieces and try to find a way to incorporate that into my wardrobe while remaining true to my own aesthetic.

4. Tell me about the most outlandish item of clothing you own.
That's a tough call. I would say either the white t-shirt I recently bought in Topman that has sheer panels that literally show my nipples or my bold patterned 80s style jumper I bought in a vintage shop in Boston.

5. Last question... plain or printed?
If you asked me this question 2 years ago I would have absolutely said printed - I used to have the most obnoxious wardrobe. Over the last year or so I've become really interested in very plain coloured clothing that are well tailored but that also have an interesting style feature to them.

If you love the interviews and you'd like to see more from The Well-Loved Wardrobe, I'll be keeping The Daily Wardrobe updated day-to-day, so be sure to check in from time to time to see what's new!
