Interview: Fashion Blogger Miles Wharton
Since moving from the United Kingdom to Australia in 2010, fashion blogger Miles Wharton has come along way. Bringing with him his unique sense of style, last year he founded a made-to-measure suiting company called The Bespoke Corner and created a successful blog and Instagram account thereafter.
SHESAID chatted to Miles just before MBFWA, and discussed his wardrobe essentials, inspirations, and what’s to come in 2015.
Could you share some of your fashion/style inspirations with us?
I have always been interested in dressing sharp from a young age. I believe that first impressions are incredibly important, and the way you dress portrays your personality.
I’d say my style is a mix of British tailoring and Italian flair. I always encourage people to start with the basics, then slowly add their own personality to the outfit. Just have fun with it!
In your opinion, what are 5 key pieces that all men should have in their wardrobe?
- Made-to-measure navy suit:Great for every occasion from work to weddings.
- Double breasted blazer:A bold statement piece every gent needs.
- Casual loafers (driving shoes): Comfortable, smart, casual everyday shoe.
- Bright pocket square: The best icebreaker.
- Fitted jeans: Everyone needs a pair of jeans.
What about something you would never wear yourself?
Personally, I would never wear skins to the gym. Some people can pull it off, I definately can’t!
We love how your blog incorporates both fashion and lifestyle. What are some of your favourite cafes or watering holes in Sydney?
Thats a tricky one. I love to try new places around Sydney. At the moment, my favourite brunch spot is The Grounds of Alexandria. As for bars, I’d have to say either The Barber Shop on York St or Cafe del Mar in Darling Harbour.
What are are some of favourite Instagram accounts or fashion bloggers?
I follow lots of different accounts for inspiration, but my favourites are: @jkplatinum, @danielre, @jwshua , @menwithclass and @blakescott_
Spill! What’s next on your fashion wishlist?
Im really into watches, so an Audemars Piguet is definitely next on the list!
Could you give some advice to aspiring bloggers who want to follow in your footsteps?
Be yourself, trust yourself and always keep going at 100 miles-per-hour. People will constantly put you down so it’s imperative you learn to block it out. Keep a clear vision of what you set out to achieve and just go for it.
