Keith keeps a few key qualities in mind when he shops for workwear. “I look out for versatile colours with a general timelessness in design and a utilitarian aspect; for example, pieces that are built for the tropics.” He shares that experience has taught him to make more practical choices with regards to the clothes and accessories that he purchases. “I try to ask my body what it wants to wear, rather than impose a certain aesthetic onto it,” he says. Keith’s sartorial experience probably comes from the memory he has of his teenage self’s style, something he wishes he could go back in time to change. “If I could talk to my 16-year-old self, I’d tell him, “Please tell me you’re not going out in those, they definitely look way too tight on you.”” His current refined sensibility might stem from his background and profession in design, which is an industry he loves being in. “I’ve always been a visual person. 9 times out of 10, if you’ve caught me handling a book or magazine, I’d probably be looking at the pictures or the layout rather than reading the content itself.” His attention to visuals probably explains his recent obsession with maintaining the cleanliness of his shoes, as he tells us. “It may have inadvertently occurred as a result of my regimental duties as a soldier — for example, Kiwi-ing our boots daily — or just the fact that some of my shoes are way too costly. It drives me insane to see the slightest bit of superficial dirt on them!”
