1. Minute Q&A
Why did you become a tailor?
“I've always had a passion for menswear, and tailoring was simply a case of natural progression. Most men typically wear oversized clothes, often compromising fit for style. Tailoring is a simple way to make clothing more flattering. I like that.”
Why do you love Clements and Church?
“At Clements and Church we take the time to get to know our clients inside out. I take great pride in being able to design and then provide exclusive, luxury items to individuals and to directly see the pleasure it brings.”
Which man (alive or dead) wore a suit the best?
“David Gandy or Cary Grant.”
What's your ultimate style tip?
“The key to any successful outfit is confidence, don't be afraid to push your boundaries!”
