Fraser Moss from YMC


This week please welcome the man, the myth, the legend that is Fraser Moss of YMC. Newport's most famous export since Donna from Elastica... Seriously though, one of the nicest guys in the fashion game.

What did you have for breakfast?

I know what I wanted… an English cooked breakfast but what I got was toast & Marmite.

What’s good about your hometown?

Well for some it’s because I don’t live there anymore!!Though Im proud to hail from Newport what I think is truly good about my shitty City is it’s people & they’re brilliant humour.

Tell us something that not many people know about you?

My great grandfather Bert Moss formed Newport County A.F.C in 1912.

Newport County FC

Favourite City.

Difficult to answer as they’re are so many great cities on this planet but today I’m feeling like I need a bit of retail therapy so I’d have to say Tokyo.

Favourite 3 brands for 2021 and why?

Unfortunately I couldn’t tell you.
I tend not to follow brands as it’s all too much of a busman’s holiday for me. As long as I feel a label has integrity I will buy from them whether they're new or not.

You’ve got £300 to spend on one item of menswear, tell us what you’re gonna be buying?

Something waterproof as I’m fed up of getting soaked walking the dog.

Provide us with a synopsis for your autobiography (in a paragraph) and what would you call it?

The working title would be ‘Winging It’ A story of a deluded Welsh boy with Imposters Syndrome who blags his way into the London scene & spends 30 years worrying about getting found out.

If a film was made of your life, give us four songs that would be included on the soundtrack?

These 4 songs would be included in the film not because they’re particularly my favourites but it’s more to do with the sentiment of the songs & how they all resonate with me. I’ve even got them in the right running order. BTW I’ve heard Rick Wakeman's up for playing the part of me.

Byrds - Wasn’t born to follow.

Dinosaur Jr- Freak Scene.

Beach Boys- I just wasn’t made for these times.

Sandra Cross- Country Living (cover of the Stylistics tune)

Lessons learnt from the Pandemic Year?

Always clean your teeth before wearing a mask.
