World's next top model: Tim Baird

Date: 23-Aug-2011

Menswear label Baskit joined forces with social networking site Connexion to find the perfect ambassador for its new campaign that launched this month. More than 200 Connexion members submitted their portfolios for consideration in the contest. Members of the social networking site voted for their favourite. Looks like we share their taste!

Tim Baird is a 27-year-old healthcare professional, originally hailing from Massechusetts but now based in Washington DC.

Vote for him in Mate of the Month.

Baskit's newest face (and body!) took a second out of his shoot to answer some quick questions.

What did you want to be when you were a kid?

As a little kid I always wanted to be a professional soccer player.

What's the best way to spend your day off?

If I had a totally free day, which never happens, I’d sleep in, then with a little motivation I’d get to the gym and spend the rest of my afternoon by the pool or beach with some friends, music, food and drinks.

Were you familiar with Baskit before the model search and what drew you to it?

Totally. I have a few pairs and modeled for a Baskit underwear show in DC. It’s sexy, great fitting underwear so entering the contest just made sense for me.

What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?

Never take anything too seriously, including yourself!
