How do you say hello where you are from? What up? You good?
What is your Starbucks order? Americano with milk.
What are you wearing right now? Carhartt sweats, Nike Jordan Jumpman hoodie, Nike Air Max, black T-shirt, Dolce underwear, and a Rolex.
What are the three items you always keep in your pockets? Burt’s Bees, a hotel pen, toothpicks, and mints.
How were you discovered? My sister Quimby told me I looked like the guys in the magazines, so I walked into an agency in Vancouver, and I guess was like, “Can I model?”
Most embarrassing modeling moment: Probably this Versace Speedo look I had at the Life Ball in Vienna years ago! Pre–social media, luckily.
How do you stay in model shape? Any tricks of the trade? I just stay active, surf, play basketball, do yoga. I stopped lifting weights a while ago and it’s easier to stay lean.
If you weren’t modeling, what would be your dream job? Producing a discovery show like Planet Earth.
Describe your style in five words: Clean, comfortable, confident, relaxed, simple.
Favorite designer: Dolce & Gabbana for the high-end dressed-up stuff, but I also wear a lot of basic stuff from Nike, Champion, and Carhartt.
If you could trade closets with someone else, whose would you choose? Joaquin Phoenix—hoping he’s got the outfits from his characters.
What new addition to your wardrobe are you currently craving this season? The Elder Statesmen cashmere sweaters.
What item in your closet do you most cherish? Why? My vintage Levi’s denim jacket—I just always go back to it. A Dolce cashmere jacket I’ve had for years, it’s timeless and super warm! Common Projects has the easiest cleanest sneaker out there. Also, my RRL black jeans.
Grooming item you cannot live without: These little Italian scissors I use for cleaning up the beard—you gotta be really careful though! Also Kiehl’s vitamin C concentrate and Oribe’s rough luxury hair wax.
What is the next thing you are going to purchase? Patagonia camping gear. I’m doing a desert excursion upon returning to L.A.
Who is the last person to cut your hair? I think Oribe Canales on the Dolce set.
