As for his personal style:

“I think my style says that I’m a bold risk taker who is also comfortable being casual. There is a little bit of punk rock mixed in there as well. When I was younger growing up in Chicago, I used to wear velour jumpsuits — I don’t do that anymore — but I think over time my style has revolved more around comfort than being edgy. I still mix and match different pieces and I love accessories now, but I like something that looks very metrical and simple. Less is more sometimes, and I’m kind of delving into that currently, especially because I travel frequently between Vancouver, where I shoot Arrow and Los Angeles.”

Jeans:  All SaintsLevi’s 510 Skinny Fit Stretch Jeans.

Pants: My favorite pair I ever had were from Zara — they just had such a great fit and were a bit stretchy. I’m trying to find another pair that fits me as well as those did!

Suits: I like TopShop suits.
