1. Minute Q&A
Why did you become a tailor?
“I have always been interested in clothing and developed a thirst for fashion from an early age. I was first introduced to my father’s tailor at the age of 13 when I had my first bespoke suit commissioned.”
Why do you love Clements and Church?
“Clements and Church has been built on integrity and honesty. The company delivers a fantastic product with unprecedented service, which I love.”
Which man (alive or dead) wore a suit the best?
“Fred Astaire for sure, his style remained relevant and timeless throughout his illustrious career.”
What's your ultimate style tip?
“Never leave home without your silver collar stiffeners: an untidy collar is a huge etiquette faux pas!”
