Anthony Logan Garrett
What did you want to become when you were a child?
A fire truck.
How did your friends/family react when you told them you wanted to be a model?
Ummm, I never really had a conversation like that with them. I never set out to become a model, however, I was always interested in men's fashion. The two go together perfectly, but the opportunity to be a model kinda fell in my lap.
How long have you been modeling for?
I have been a full-time model for a year and a half.
What has been your greatest accomplishment so far:
Shooting for GQ Mexico.
Who inspires you in the industry?
My favorite male models are Willy Cartier, Luke Ditella, David Gandy. None of these guys look anything like me, but their body of work, character, and attitude inspire me immensely.
What aspects of your job do you like best/least?
I love seeing a project through to fruition and the feeling of accomplishment that accompanies it. I really enjoy men's fashion and seeing what I find aesthetically pleasing and what stylists see as well. I also love meeting new people and traveling. My least favorite aspect of modeling is simply the preconceived notion that I am some brainless kid in a speedo.
Describe your style in terms of fashion:
My style has been evolving steadily since my early 20's. Currently, I am in a "simple is better" phase where I wear a lot of black, grey, and white. I bought a vintage motorcycle last year and that has shaped my style significantly toward a black leather jacket and boots guy.
What makes you happy?
Being productive in order to be lazy, seeing happy kids, connecting with someone who has the same vibe as me, Old Fashioned's, riding my motorcycle when it's cool outside, jewelry, being ok with being sad sometimes...
What is your favourite song at the moment, and of all time?
At the moment, it would have to be Keaton Henson - Sweetheart, what have you done to is? - Keaton Henson can break you heart with a song like only a few other people can these days. All time - Talking Heads - This Must Be the Place... It's my totem (like in the movie inception)... Whether I'm too high or too low... That song is just right.
What are some of your favourite movies?
"Closer" is my all time favorite movie.
What is your biggest guilty pleasure?
Eating a lot, drinking a lot... And the occasional cigarette
Describe yourself in 5 words:
Searching, Self-Aware, gypsy, happy, intelligent
Which living person do you admire most?
My father. We don't agree on many things, but he loves everyone and always tries to do the right thing.
What do you most value in people? I admire when people have the courage to be honest, ya know? Have a fucking opinion every once in a while... And don't be scared to not like someone or something.
Name 2 things people don't know about you:
I hate mustard.
I love Sriracha.
What is your motto?
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Happy. Where and doing what don't matter to me...
Any advice for men wanting to become models?
If you really want something, just stay after it and don't let anyone tell you you can't.
Any last words?
Thanks so much for interviewing me! It was a huge honor!
