Tatts what I'm talkin' about

Not just Veronika Heilbrunner’s arm accessory, there is more to the Australian native than meets the eye

He grew up in a remote Aboriginal town in Northern Australia. His father worked in a mine and his mother was a teacher. For a period of time, O'Shea worked in the mine together with his father. 

He only wears bespoke suits by New York tailor, Doyle + Mueser. His signature look: slim cut three-piece suits. He believes that every man should have a tailor-made suit and, for ready-to-wear, he is a loyal customer of Prada and Acne Studios.

He has an obsession with bright printed swimming shorts. And can't live without waistcoats and sunglasses — two of his wardrobe essentials.

He no longer sports his signature beard. Two weeks ago, O'Shea posted an Instagram photo of his clean-shaven look, revealing a chiselled jaw line.

He first met girlfriend, Veronika Heilbrunner, at the Acne Studios showroom in Copenhagen. The tall blonde caught his attention in a white tee, high-waisted denim shorts, a motorcycle jacket, and Acne Studio ankle boots.

He was inked for the first time at 25. Although his tatts generally don't have specific meanings, he has Heilbrunner's name inked on his chest right above his heart.

He has been dating Heilbrunner for over two years. They make up the power couple of Munich-based luxury e-retailer, as buying director and fashion editor respectively. 

He is a master of unpacking boxes. Together with the delivery team at the's warehouse, O'Shea enjoys unpacking boxes, just like he did when he worked at a supermarket in Australia.
