GQ Style Man of the Year, 2023 – Part 2

Last week we introduced you to Tobias Otting, FreshNeck’s youngest (9 years old), but but perhaps most dapper, member.

We received such great feedback (and so many questions!), so we decided to reach out to Tobias and ask him a few fashion-related questions.

FreshNeck: When did you first start appreciating fashion? What was your inspiration?

Tobias: I’ve always had an appreciation for fashion, but I got really interested in it when I saw a distinguished gentleman wearing a bow tie that fit him perfectly. I thought I could grow up to do that, too.

Looks like Tobias has the bow tie down, already.

FreshNeck: How would you describe your style?

Tobias: I do not have one specific style, but I look for inspiration everywhere.

FreshNeck: How do your peers respond to your uniqueness?

Tobias: They have come to expect nothing less. (Yeah, he’s a baller).

FreshNeck: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? In 10 years?

Tobias: In five years I see myself designing clothing.  In ten years I hope to be recruited to the Fashion Institute of Technology. (We have your recommendation letter ready for you)

FreshNeck: How did you get on board with FreshNeck? How do you feel about this type of service?

Tobias: A membership was my Christmas present from my father and I love the clothing. I am looking forward to getting more bow ties, cufflinks, and pocket squares (he can’t yet wear regular length ties). I also like that FreshNeck allows me to add variety to my wardrobe since I don’t like to repeat my looks too often.
