Sportscraft have replaced the stained footy jerseys with something a little more dapper for the boys over at the Wallabies. Designed specifically as the Australian team’s official formal and travel uniforms, the collection deemed the Gentleman of Summer cuts a perfect synergy between contemporary style and sport.
High-profile players such as Israel Folau, Michael Hooper and Nick Phipps all take part in the fun alongside a Q&A session with the label to divulge all that it is gentlemanly. Here’s a brief excerpt of how it all went down.
Sportcraft: If you could watch a sport other than rugby, what would it be?
Dave Dennis: The Masters at Augusta.
Israel Folau: I love watching some NBA.
Michael Hooper: On the beach at the Pipeline Masters.
Nick Phipps: AFL Grand Final – Up the Tiges!
Sportscraft: Guilty Pleasures?
Dave Dennis: Cheese… soft cheeses.
Israel Folau: Chocolate! Definitely a Twix.
Michael Hooper: Same, chocolate, Peanut M&M’s.
Nick Phipps: Cookies and Cream Ice-cream.
Sportscraft: Where would you take a girl on a first date?
Dave Dennis: I’ve lost my dating knack. Cooking? Maybe take groceries to her house and cook.
Israel Folau: In Sydney, probably Whale Beach.
Michael Hooper: Hugos Manly, on the water.
Nick Phipps: A brunch. It’s not quite breakfast, it’s not quite lunch.
Sportscraft: One place on your bucket list to visit?
Dave Dennis: Greek Islands and sailing Europe in summer.
Israel Folau: Barcelona.
Micahel Hooper: Vietnam would be cool or Hawaii.
Nick Phipps: Madison Square Garden to watch the Knicks!
Sportscraft: What are 3 things every guy should pack when travelling?
Dave Dennis: A vanity bag, boardies and a good book.
Israel Folau: Jocks, socks and some nice cologne.
Michael Hooper: Charger, phone and laptop.
Nick Phipps: Book, sunnies and a loud party shirt.
