All this week, Steve Tilbrook, founder of the influential menswear Instagram account @stevetillystyle will be taking the reigns of our instagram in an all out spring racing style takeover. To add to the fun, we thought you might enjoy this behind the scenes interview with the man himself. Take it away Steve...
If I had to describe my personal style in three words they would be… Modern dapper experimental
My style essentials include…The perfect fitting shirt and suit, loafers and a great tie and square combo.
The first thing I do in the morning is… Hit the gym. Looking after body first which takes care of mind and soul.
I would never leave home without… My style game on point, whether casual or work, plus my phone.
My day job is… Team Leader of a Urban Planning team at a Council.
The best thing about being in the fashion spotlight is… The new friends that I have made and the recognition that I know what good style is.
The hardest thing about being in the fashion spotlight is... Time management juggling work, family and liaising with brands, but it's my true passion so I love it.
I find fashion inspiration… Everywhere, on Instagram, shopping malls and on the street.
One person I’d love to meet would have to be… Michael Jordan, so dedicated to winning and being the best.
One thing I’ve never done but would love to do is… Attend Pitti Uomo, the most important menswear and accessory event in the world.
Something people don’t know about me is… I'm a family man with amazing wife and two beautiful kids, girl 6 and boy 3.
My top advice to aspiring fashion influencers is… Stay true to your style and rep it with confidence as this is what style is all about.
