To celebrate the Mr. Jones Spring/Summer 2018 issue, editor Ben Mckelvey and David Jones ambassador Adam Goodes took the stage at the David Jones Market Street store in Sydney to chat with two bright young athletes about the intersection of sport and style. Presented by BOSS, the event introduced runner Joseph Deng (also Mr. Jones cover star) and surfer Soli Bailey to the busy crowd in town for this year’s Vogue Fashion Night Out.

Looking quite dapper in their BOSS suits, the guys talked about how important style can be in terms of their respective disciplines. Deng spoke about his early years at a Sudanese refugee camp and then moving to Australia – how playing soccer at school helped him to learn English and how it was his style, not his speed, that originally got him noticed.

Bailey, meanwhile, spoke about the perfect wave and how, while surfing has given him a wonderful career, it’s also surprisingly still a form of relaxation for him.
