Suit by Gieves & Hawkes
I have gone through all the designer labels over the years including off the peg suits, but I soon realised that in order to be taken seriously in my business you have to go bespoke. I deal with a number of international clients and the expectation is that I am well suited and booted because I believe that ’first impression is always everlasting’. But I also like to be creative with my suits, and going bespoke allows me to do that.

Shirt by Thomas Pink
I believe a shirt must be simple and classy. I am not restricted by colour because I like to experiment with different shades, though my preference is with solid colours. My shirts are always slim fitted with cut away collar. This is my view compliments the tie. I like Thomas Pink because of its high quality shirts at a reasonable price. I go through quite a lot of shirts in a year, as I regularly dispose of them (by donating to charity)

Tie by Polo Ralph Lauren (Purple Label)
To me everyman must wear a good tie with a good suit. I own quite a large collection of ties, but Polo Ralph Lauren remains my favourite, because of how the colour is pronounced and the texture is smooth.

Shoes by Tods
I love tods because of how soft the leather feels. The softness of the leather is important for me, because I spend the majority of my day visiting sites (we also do property renovations) and clients. I tend to keep my shoes conservative, but for me comfort, practicality and style always required.
Tods, Old Bond Street, London
Pocket square by Hermes
A pocket square is one of the requirements of a gentleman in suit. I always get complimented on this classic part of my dressing

Hat by Lock & Co.
My hat defines my dressing. I have been wearing hats now for over 10 years. They add class to my dressing, but they also come in as practical when I go to Ascot
