Wear it backwards, forwards or on the side with swagger; a hat gives you attitude whether you asked for it or not, so you better decide which air you feel like giving off. i-D Online presents our top 4 men’s hats to shade or aid the summer sun modelled on New York City skateboarder and M and P model of the moment Chris W.

What modelling jobs have you done so far? A lot but my favourites were Hedi Slimane for VMAN, Nick Knight for GQ, and of course my work with Collier Schorr.

Tell us about your tattoos, what do they mean to you? Well the one across my chest and down my arm represents spirit, pride and honour, it is a Polynesian tattoo. The hand tattoos are from Mauri warriors, the cross is for someone I once knew and ‘you envy me’ was a joke from Iraq. I also have strength, courage, knowledge in Kanji and also my date of birth, my name and my zodiac sign which is Virgo.
When do you feel most attractive? Everyday! I take advantage hah!
