Following the instant popularity of Dan Savage’s hunk of a husband’s Mr. Turk swimwear campaign, we knew we had to talk to the guy. Turns out this was his first time modeling. EVER. Hard to believe from a man that looks so good in a bathing suit! We asked him about the campaign and slipped in some questions about married life too (the couple married in December of last year). “Nothing’s really changed,” he said about tying the knot. From our experience, that means his and Savage’s relationship is pretty much fail proof, and we couldn’t be happier for them.
You’ve probably seen the photos already, but check them out at the bottom of the article or here after reading our exclusive Q&A.
The Underwear Expert: You look great in the photos, which pair was your favorite?
Terry Miller: I’m really digging the pink and neutral tones on the striped suits. Those two are amazing! But honestly, all his suits fit so well. It’s hard…!
UX: Where was the photo shoot?
Terry: At Trina and Mr. Turks home in Palm Springs. It’s pretty spectacular!
UX: Have you modeled before or is this your first campaign?
Terry: No. Never before. I posted some photos from summer vacation on Instagram in a couple of swimsuits from last year’s Mr. Turk line. I love his clothes, Im such a fan I tagged the photos. Mr. Turk saw them and got in touch with me. He asked if I would want to get together and be photographed in some of the new line. Honestly, I’m very flattered.
UX: Congrats on the recent nuptials! How is married life?
Terry: Thank you! Same as it was before. Nothing’s really changed. We’ve been together 18 years, so marriage didn’t really change anything except our tax status
UX: Has Dan seen the photos? What’s he think if so?
Terry: Yeah. He’s seen everything. He didn’t come to the shoot, but he came for drinks after. I’m assuming he likes the pictures — he posted a bunch of them on Twitter!
UX: Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Terry: Thanks, Mr. Turk. It was such a cool experience!
UX: Thanks, Terry!
