Faces of 570: Meet James S
Discover more about James S' obsession with shoes, double persona and his dream to travel to the South Pacific.
The ‘Faces of 570’ are designed to provide a snapshot of humanity and insight into some of the people you may rub shoulders with in the lift, see walking in and out of the building, guffawing in The Common or at your events.
The next face of 570 Bourke Street is James S, the brains behind Trimly and Thomas George Collection.
WHO DO YOU WORK FOR AND WHAT DO YOU DO?
I run two businesses, Trimly and Thomas George Collection. My goal is to evolutionise men’s footwear in Australia. The Thomas George collection has just launched, so head over to the website and check it our for yourself!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE SONG?
"Changes" by 2Pac is the song that opened my conservative ears to hip hop and rap. It's just a power song with something to say and uses a great sample from "The Way It Is" by Bruce Hornsby and the Range.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE QUOTE?
Lady Astor: "Winston, if I were your wife I'd put poison in your coffee."
Winston Churchill: "Nancy, if I were your husband I'd drink it."
WHAT'S YOUR GO-TO COFFEE ORDER?
Nitro Cold Brew
TELL ME SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF THAT MAY SURPRISE PEOPLE?
If you see me on the street and I don't say hello, you've probably just passed my identical twin brother.
IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT THE WORLD, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
A complete makeover on how we educate our children, because at the moment we're preparing them for last century.
WHAT DOES YOUR PERFECT SUNDAY MORNING LOOK LIKE?
A morning run around the Tan, a play with my 3 small children and maybe a brunch with my wife and (well-behaved) little ones.
WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE ARTIST?
Big Chupa Chups fan over here... so Salvador Dali, of course (he designed their logo).
WHERE IS YOUR ULTIMATE TRAVEL DESTINATION?
I would love to travel to Palau Islands, South Pacific. A tropical paradise. White beaches. No Bintang T-shirts. It was also a major battle area between the US and Japan during WW2, so some very interesting diving and sights to be seen.
NAME ONE FOOD YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT?
The food I cannot live without would be cinnamon donuts. My will is weak and Coles tend to sell them cheap.
Thanks so much for joining us James. We can't wait to see your beautiful shoes walking the streets of Melbourne.
