“I’ve actually become known as the fashionable Irwin,” Irwin joked.
“If my family were here, they’d definitely be giving me some heat from it. They like to joke about my ‘shants’ or short pants. But I think we can confirm that shants are fashionable, right?”
In the accompanying photoshoot, Robert discussed his father’s influence on the world of fashion.
“My dad wasn’t exactly a fashion icon, but he was iconic just in the fact that he made khaki cool,” Irwin said.
“I feel an incredible sense of pride when I put my khaki uniform on in the morning and it feels normal – more normal than anything else I wear.
“Because it’s my every day and I feel this connection to dad. I feel this connection to my family and this sense of purpose. That’s what fashion can do. It’s empowering.”
