Name: Thomas Welch

Age: 26

Occupation: Lead Photographer at Highsnobiety

Neighborhood: Clinton Hill

Favorite shop in New York City: Dover Street Market

Favorite restaurant in New York City: Lavagna or Tomoe Sushi

How did you get into fashion: The catalyst was Styleforum. I was a raw denim nerd which led to a detail-oriented obsession with clothing. I got into fashion with a capital F during high school from my friend that worked at Barneys. I've always been a consumer, but my true passion is in design and storytelling.

How would you describe your personal style: Dorky casual by way of Japan and Scandinavia.

Current favorite piece(s) in your closet: Valentino S/S 15 silk trousers, Our Legacy F/W 17 ranch shirt, Comme des Garçons Shirt shirts, WINWEL F/W 15 floral coat, Casbia Vetta sneakers and Stan Smiths.

How long have you been using Grailed: For a minute now.

Most memorable Grailed come up: Yeezy Season 3 sweatshirt. I'm not a Yeezy evangelist, but I was on the ground at Madison Square Garden taking photos for Season 3 and launch of The Life of Pablo which was incredible. I needed something to commemorate that experience and the oversized hoodies from that collection were pure fire. I picked yellow because it's the one Young Thug had on.

Favorite fashion designers: Comme des Garçons, Our Legacy, Sacai, Cav Empt, Dries Van Noten and Raf Simons.

Ultimate grail: Pass.
