Tommy Gunn is best known through his work as an actor in the adult entertainment industry. He has crossed over before as a minor character on HBO’s hit series Entourage, and is now stapling his name in the fashion industry with his first ever underwear collection (which caters to both men and women). We had the privilege to chat with Tommy Gunn about his personal life, and what we can expect from his new collection.
(BestFan) What was it like creating this line?
It was exciting actually. It goes back about 12 years and I’m revisiting it again doing the underwear. Starting at the intimate stuff with the underwear, and it’s really fun and I’m looking forward to it.
(BestFan) This isn’t your first break into the apparel industry, we actually just read recently that you had designed before. What was your first garment piece you ever created?
What was the first garment I ever created?… Boy ugh, Swimwear! Bikini’s – yeah! Swimwear!
(BestFan) Are doing any designing this year aside from your line?
We are going to delve into more of the patterns and such with the underwear and get away from the black and white, just the classic stuff. That’s our first entry into the underwear stuff.
(BestFan) What separates your underwear line from many others out there ?
It’s the fabric! It’s the Ice-Wik wicking technology. It takes the moisture away from the skin and it’s real comfortable and form fitting.
Bestfan Quick Questions
1. Valentine’s Day is coming up, what is your “ideal” Valentine’s Day.
Ah my ideal Valentine’s Day. Well I’ve had a number of them. Maybe this time I will get about 5 of my girlfriends and maybe play strip poker while we all wear our Tommy Gunn underwear. See how the night progresses. (laughs.)
2. When was your first kiss?
(My first kiss) Oh I was in a barn actually, you know with all the hay, with a girl years ago when I was 14! She said ” Come into the barn!”, and the next thing you know we were kissing and riding horses later in the day and that was exciting.
3. What’s your favourite song on your ipod at the moment?
My favourite song on my ipod at the moment? Boy ugh! That’s a tough one. I’m a Van Halen fan, so there’s a new song called “Tattoo” that’s out. I like that.
4. Boxers or Briefs?
5. Madonna or Lady Gaga?
Madonna’s classic and she’s been around for awhile so I like her obviously, It kinda goes without saying. But Gaga is new. She’s a newer type of artist on the music scene. So yeah, I like her. She’s daring too! similiar to Madonna. We need to get Lady Gaga on a pair of Tommy Gunn underwear.
6. Are there any designers out there that are inspiring you?
Tommy Gunn will be signing autographs, and accompanied by models for fans to take photo’s for Today From 1:00pm to 3:00pm, at Ice Gear in the Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre.
The collection will officially launch on February 14th 2012.
