Beaconsfield

What do James Corden, Barry Gibb and Benjamin Disraeli all have in common? They’ve all lived in Beaconsfield. They’ve also all been known as dapper dressers in their time. No wonder Clements and Church have an outpost here.

1. Minute Q&A

Why did you become a tailor?

“From a young age, I was always the guy my friends would come to for style advice, just through my interest in fashion. I then started to customise clothing in my spare time, which helped develop my hunger to get into the world of tailoring. I love to see confidence and positivity in people - this is often portrayed in how they are presented through what they wear, in particular with the fit of a suit. To this point, it gives me pleasure that I can impact on how an individual feels and how they carry themselves.”

Why do you love Clements and Church?

“Clements and Church gives me the opportunity to design and create whatever I feel is necessary. They allow me to take chances and support all ideas (within reason). For me, this is essential as we add our own personality to the product which we have in each of our stores, while still maintaining our identity. We are very much a family-feel company which filters down from our directors Mark and Aaron.”

Which man (alive or dead) wore a suit the best?

“I have become slightly obsessed with Eddie Redmayne lately. The way he carries himself at red carpet events intrigues me - he’s not afraid to push boundaries, but always presents himself as a classy gentleman through what he wears.”

What's your ultimate style tip?

“Don’t ruin your tailored suit with a bad pair of shoes.”

Our picks in Beaconsfield

Crazy Bear

Old Town,
Beaconsfield, HP9 1LX
www.crazybeargroup.co.uk

Tel: +44 (0) 1494 673086

 

Perhaps the antithesis to those bland, beige chain hotels, the Crazy Bear is opulent, extravagant and above all else luxurious (fans of velvet and padded walls, you’re going to like it here). It’s also housed in the oldest documented building in Beaconsfield - a 15th century coaching inn.

Danesfield House

Henley Road, Marlow-On-Thames,
Buckinghamshire, SL7 2EY
www.danesfieldhouse.co.uk

Tel: +44 (0) 1628 891 010

 

A stunning Grade II-listed country house surrounded by 65 acres of landscaped gardens and parkland, Danesfield House Hotel and Spa is the go-to place for outdoorsy relaxation. And while the old-school art and tapestries are impressive, the spa treatments on offer are even more so.

Cliveden House

Cliveden House, Taplow,
Berkshire, SL6 0JF
www.clivedenhouse.co.uk

Tel: +44 (0) 1628 668561

 

Country house hotels don’t get much more impressive than this - a vast Italianate mansion on the banks of the Thames that’s been home to an earl, three countesses, two dukes, a Prince of Wales and the Viscounts Astor. A suitably regal setting to test drive your tailoring in, we’d say.

Stoke Park

Park Road, Stoke Poges,
Buckinghamshire, SL2 4PG
www.stokepark.com

Tel: +44 (0) 1753 717171

 

While you might recognise this place from Goldfinger, Tomorrow Never Dies or Layer Cake, this is more than a film buff’s space. The 27 hole golf course is among the top 100 in the world, the tennis courts are used by the game’s best players and the spa complex is second-to-none.
