1. Katherine Lowe and I have spent the past three weeks fighting; it's been business as usual. But this time, there was a light at the end of the tunnel – we were duking it out over the design of Little Brother's labels, swing tags, tee shirt and sweater prints. This morning at 3:30am New Zealand time/11:30am New York time, we cracked it. And at the risk of counting our chickens before they hatch, I reckon it's the best work we've ever done. I am so god damn excited to launch this collection! Might have to start leaking some imagery over the next couple of weeks. Keep an eye out.

Sounds like you're stuck between a rock and a hard place. If you break up with him, you're going to be upset for a while. If you stay with him, you're basically telling yourself, him and everyone you know that you're not worthy of being treated with respect. Your friends have good reason to hate him – he sounds like a complete and utter douche bag. Don't get me wrong, I can imagine exactly why you like him: He's good looking, funny, he keeps you on your toes, it's exciting, you never know what to expect, it's dramatic, passionate and nobody knows what it's like when it's just you and him.

Hi Jack, good question. I wear the same pair of navy blue Chuck Taylors every day of the week, and they are, in my opinion, the perfect shoes. However: I will concede that I don't have to go to an office for work, my only dress code is whatever I feel like wearing on the day, and I wouldn't wear them to a wedding. So after a bit of thought, I have come to the decision that there are seven pairs of shoes that should keep you (and every other man) well-shod no matter what the occasion. They are...

That old chestnut... Will my arts degree get me a job? Here's the thing – If I had a dollar for every commerce or science graduate who's ever made fun of me for doing a BA, I'd be about a hundred bucks richer than I am now. If I had a dollar for every arts graduate I know who can destroy a commerce or science graduate in any argument that requires critical thinking, I'd be a billionaire. Zingggg. I guess the more pertinent question is: If you're not going to university to become a doctor, lawyer, engineer, architect, teacher, accountant, dentist or academic (etc etc), how useful is any course of study? Answer: Very useful.

A few weeks ago Lacoste Live tapped me to take them on an unconventional tour of New York City that was, in fact, so unconventional, that it included a few spots that I'd never been before. Starting off on top of the world (my beloved Williamsburg Bridge), we hit Rosario's for a slice, went a few rounds at Gleason's Boxing Gym, interviewed the most chilled out tattoo artist of all time at East River, watched the sunset from my rooftop, met up with some mates at Zebulon (holla at Jenny Albright, Dierdre Reimhold and Simon Oscroft), then finished up at Le Bain. All in all, a bloody good day out in New York. And in case you were wondering, Thibault, the film's 25 year old French director, actually did get that THE END tattoo – if that's not commitment to the cause, I don't know what is.
I LIKE YOU!

The short answer, in my opinion, is yes I think it's shady to meet up with an ex without telling your long term partner. The question I wish I could ask you is this: Why do you feel the need to talk about things/get closure/make peace with someone who treated you incredibly badly? Also, despite the fact that you are now in a happy, committed and real deal relationship, are you still holding onto the pain resulting from your ex's past actions? (Genuine question, not an accusation.)

1. You know how guys always say 'No homo' after saying anything that could be misconstrued as being the least bit gay? My friends and I are trialling a new one out – 'No hetero'. You say it after anything that could be misconstrued as being the least bit straight. For example: "Woah did you see that girl's ass? No hetero." "The game's on. No hetero." It also works pretty well to reinforce a statement, lest there be any doubt: "Curled up on the couch with my mates and a big bowl of popcorn, watching The Notebook. :-) No hetero." "God he's got good abs. No hetero." Give it a go. You'll love it.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't love you for asking me that question. See below for the answers.
