As a player on the U.S. National and England's Stoke City teams, Geoff's well-known among soccer fans on both sides of the pond╌and for more than just skills on the field. His hair is so cool, it's become something of a star in its own right, spawning admiring chatter from style mags and fans╌and even its own Twitter handle: @Geoffs_Hair.
So, your hair has its own Twitter account. How did that happen? What’s it like having such famous hair?
I have no idea who runs it╌some fan did it. I think they are hilarious, and they always have my back.
Describe your signature look and grooming routine.
Maintained scruffiness. Somewhat classy. I get my hair cut every two weeks by the same barber at the same place.
What's your look for a night out?
Depends on where we're going╌I dress for the occasion. But I don't dress to impress, I dress for me and what I feel comfortable in. I enjoy wearing suits for games and looking like a businessman, because I like to take care of business.
Describe your personal style.
Modern. A mix of preppy, trendy and tailored Euro/English.
Do you notice a difference between American and British style? You're American╌has being in Britain affected your look?
I can pick out an American in London in two seconds, especially an American businessman╌American suits are less tailored. One time I came back home, and my dad looked at me like, "What are you wearing?" I had on cuffed pants that were in style in Europe but hadn’t made their way to the States yet. I like a mix of everything. Style should be whatever you want it to be.
You travel a lot. What can we always find in your carry-on?
