Seattle Seahawks Luke Willson talks style — and that hair

Luke Willson talks surprisingly freely about fashion.

While the Seattle Seahawks tight end has been known off the field more for his infamous long locks (more on that later) than his clothes, the 27-year-old Windsor, Ont.-native can hold his own on the topic of style.

“For me, it’s kind of laid-back and sort of casual,” Willson says of his off-field fashion. “When I do get dressed up nice, it’s a pretty rare occasion, so I’ll go — I don’t want to say pretty intense — but I’ll try to do a good job.”

In Vancouver recently for a few brief hours to help celebrate the newly renovated Hugo Boss store at Oakridge Centre, Willson spoke candidly — and animatedly — about everything from his shopping struggles to his favourite brands.

While Willson says his go-to look is jeans, sneakers and a “nice” shirt, don’t be fooled. This sports star knows how to dress.

“Sometimes I’ll throw on a bomber jacket,” he admits casually. But, as we delved deeper into our style discussion, Willson confessed to being a bit of a fashion-phile. And he admits his Canadian upbringing — and his half-Italian heritage — also plays a part in his sartorial side.

“A lot of guys make fun of me, but I tend to wear skinnier jeans,” he says. “They’re not like full-blown skinny jeans, because I can’t fit my legs into those. But they’re tighter. I don’t mind it.

“In Canada, guys are a little more into the European look,”
