Following a decade and a half in the art trade, at Christie’s then Bernheimer Fine Arts, I moved into the world of menswear, initially at David Evans & Co, silk printers to the likes of Turnbull & Asser, Liberty and Ralph Lauren.
A long-standing connection with Brooks Brothers then followed, first with two years as the head of the London buying office then seven years as the UK agent for their Japanese retail operation. Following a 3-year stint which ran from the opening of their first UK store, I established this tailoring business in 2009.
Words to ponder: ‘Remember, people only see your head and hands. The rest is made entirely of clothes so let them speak for you.’
