Happy Birthday Thom Evans!
To celebrate the 28th birthday of our campaign star Thom Evans we take a look back at some of our favourite images of the former rugby star modelling our underwear and soon-to-launch beachwear!
Thom, who is currently the face (and body) of D.HEDRAL, was a Scottish international rugby union player until the age of 24, when on his tenth appearance for Scotland on 13th February 2010, he suffered a career changing neck injury playing against Wales.
Thom began his rugby career representing England at U16, U18 and U21 levels before committing to Scotland. He earnt his first cap for Scotland playing against Argentina in 2008 and went on to be selected for the pre Six Nations 30 man squad for the 2008 Six Nations.
Having survived an injury that could have seen him paralysed, Thom retired from rugby and went straight back to his passion – sport, becoming a sprinter.
Thom is now pursuing modelling after signing with Select Models in London, and acting after being approached by a top agent in LA.
Here’s what Thom had to say after landing our SS13 campaign:
“I’m excited to be fronting my first fashion campaign since signing with Select Models last year and am really enjoying the challenges that modelling and acting brings. Similar to being a sportsman, the industry demands discipline and structure. You get out what you put in.”
