What have you learnt as an influencer that you could apply to succeeding in life?

This is a really good question. I always tend to shy away from the term ‘influencer’ as I’ve worked in the fashion industry for over 10 years.

Over the years I have always maintained a great relationship with brands and this has been the success to my growth. I’m extremely passionate about fashion and when working with smaller or larger brands, I always create a positive work and team ethic. For me I always feel proud when brands tell me I’m a pleasure to work with and that I’ve helped them grow too. I guess my advice to anyone wanting to succeed in life, is always be humble, work hard, create positive relationships and the success will soon follow.

I think I’ve done so well with it because behind all the snaps and content, my followers can relate to me as I’m just a down to earth guy that’s passionate about what he does.

In the past couple of years I’ve been nominated as one of the top fashion influencers/bloggers to watch and this has always been a proud moment, for me to be recognised amongst so many great people in the industry.

What tunes do you have on repeat at the moment?

I always have Drake and Chris Brown on repeat.

Which shows are you currently binging on Netflix?

I’m always on the go and hardly have time to watch TV these days, but Power is a favourite of mine, especially when I’m chilling on a Sunday.

How would you describe your style?

I would describe my style as classic but significant!  Growing up my style inspiration were people like David Beckham that could pull of a suit but also look epic in a leather jacket and ripped jeans.

What’s your number one tip for guys struggling to put an outfit together?

I always recommend keeping things simple when guys are struggling. I always suggest using staple pieces to build an outfit such as good pair of shoes, shirt and jacket.

What’s the garment you can’t live without and why? 

I can’t live without my leather jacket as it such a versatile piece in my wardrobe on my casual days. 

What is your favourite footwear style of all time and why? 

For me it has to be a good pair of leather loafers to compliment my tailoring looks.

Where can we find you online and what do you have coming up? 

You can find me on my Instagram account @Domain_esdale where I post fashion and lifestyle content daily. I have lots of exciting things in the pipeline, working with some strong online and high street brands. I also plan to travel more and do lots of charity work over the next few months.
