Interview with Todd Sanfield

Greg Vaughan
Hello Todd! Would you like to introduce yourself to my readers?
Hey Guys! I am Todd Sanfield Doctoral Candidate, Entrepreneur, and I guess a Model.
You guess? Please see below...

Talk me through an average day in the life of you?
Currently, I do a lot of studying. I wake up in the morning go to class, come home to answer emails and do orders, study for a few hours, then hit the gym, after the gym answer some more emails and biz stuff, and finish up the night with some more studying. Also, I eat all day long, to the point that it gets in the way of life lol.
That sounds amazing! The eating part that is, not so keen on the constant studying...
Greg Vaughan
A lot of my wasps will know you as a model having seen you grace publications like DNA Magazine and Tetu, and feature in spreads (quite literally) by some amazing photographers like Tony Duran, Greg Vaughan, Joe Lally and Rick Day! But you know that. So I'd like to know how you got into modelling?
My mom! She talked me into it! lol. I did not grow up thinking about or wanting to be a model. She pretty much made the decision for me.
Well thank god for pushy mothers who are NOT of the Toddler's & Tiaras variety!

Joe Lally
Please tell me you’re ‘forever in the gym to get a body like yours?
I probably spend 1.5 to 2 hours in the gym six days a week with 30 minutes being some form of cardiovascular exercise. I try to make the best use of my time because of all the studying and work I have to do.
Too much commitment for me I’m afraid, I already dedicate triple that amount of time to eating!
Greg Vaughan
I hate to point it out but I don’t think I’ve ever seen you in an editorial with clothes on? Does one exist, or is it insisted upon at all times that Todd Sanfield pose in a barely there speedo with well-greased abs?
Recently, no! But, I did do one back in the day for L'Uomo Vogue where they put me in a gold suit, it was pretty SICK!
Enter gold suit…
Who have been some of your favourite photographers to work with so far in your career?
Kevin McDermott is the first one that comes to mind because we have this AMAZING coffee table book coming out the beginning of May. It is called MOTEL|HOTEL and it is the most SEXUAL images I have ever taken. This is going to be something SPECIAL!

Tell me more…
When you see the images in this book it will be CRAZY SEXUAL, the full monty and more! You have never seen anything like this book!
Jesus Todd, what comes after a full monty?!

Let’s talk about your underwear collection, the aptly titled 'Todd Sanfield Collection'!!! How did it come about and what would you say makes a Todd Sanfield pair of briefs special in an already oversaturated underwear market?
The line came about because of my love for fashion and after years of wearing underwear/swimwear I gravitated towards this niche. What makes The Todd Sanfield Collection special is that I personally package and deliver each pair to every customer! Haha, joke. I am a big fan of quality and style. I believe this is an area that was lacking and something I am working hard to give and keep giving.
We do love a giver here on My Portis Wasp says!
How much involvement do you have with your Collection? Obviously you have your name on it so you must be pretty involved (like the Kardashian’s are with their lines), but I can’t imagine you sit up late each night stitching briefs and losing yourself in colour swatches?
I am very involved; everything you have seen thus far is my doing.
God you’re like a super human! Between all the crunches, eating, studying and seaming…. let’s not forget the thousands of international deliveries…. when do you find time to sleep?!

What is your favourite piece from the Collection? Just so you know I like the Clay brief if you’d like to gift me a pair?
My favourites are the red and hot pink boxer brief. The Clay Brief is a great seller. What is your size? I'll throw ya a pair!
Medium, please AND thank you!

Are more lines planned in the near future?
Oh yeah, the future is looking very good, be on the look out!

How would you describe Todd as a child?
Played a lot of sports, every day, all day, all year round. I was very energetic.
Has much changed since?
All of the energy and drive has now been converted to work, studying, and the gym.

A guilty pleasure you can’t seem to quit?
Yeah, whenever I eat anything sweet, such as ice cream, it can't just be one bowl. It has to be the whole container no matter how big or small it is. I eat the whole thing until it is gone. The same thing goes for pizza, donuts, cookies, pie, brownies, candy, etc. etc.
Ugh, you're the worst! You've got me so hungry now!
Greg Vaughan
A song that makes your heart skip a beat?
I love Deadmau5, so anything he plays gets me stoked!
Greg Vaughan
If the world were coming to an end and you were allowed one last kiss, who would be lucky enough to land on your lips?
My mom!
What did you say.....? Portis Wasp?
My mom!
Sorry, I'm not hearing you?
My MOM!!!

What never fails to makes you smile?
My dog!
Would you like to ask Portis Wasp a question?
What made you start your blog?
No particular reason mate. I guess I just fancied owning a spot on the internet where I would be free to share my likes with the world. I wasn't on any kind of mission. But now.... now it's a different story. And one hell of a fun mission! (Think Mission Impossible 3)
Greg Vaughan
I'm thirsty too! Thanks for stopping by Todd. Now get back to your studies doc!

Visit The Todd Sanfield Collection by clicking the briefs below and until 31st March you can order one pair of these briefs and get another pair free!



  1. I wish Todd sold the V NECK tshirts that he wears!... and the basket space in his briefs is just too girdely... a little more room in the basket is on trend and would be much more comfortable!

  2. Well maybe he'll read this and take your v neck suggestion on board! ;-)

  3. Come meet him on Facebook, he answers everyone there. I love his underwears, they are the best!
