LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON

For Vogue Italia, Bruce Weber enlisted Sam to star alongside none other than his dad. “I feel it was a great opportunity to show my dad what I do, especially as it is so hard to explain as a profession”, he confessed to CoverMen magazine. Despite moving to London while his family live in Birmingham, the father and son duo bond over motorbikes — Sam buys classics and Father Webb upholsters and sells.

THE PERFECT BROMANCE

While on set for Dolce & Gabbana, Sam struck up a friendship with Essex lad David Gandy – they've since been spotted during a number of nights on the town! David Gandy has also doubled up as a mentor to Sam, supporting him “directly and indirectly, either through (his) actions or actual advice.”
