Since 1980, menswear & fashion retail commentator, opinionated thought-leader,
event host & all-round top bloke. Contact me to discuss working together.


Sharp Suits, a pictorial history of men’s tailoring, is all my own work. The slightly longer revised edition appeared in spring 2013; the first edition was published in autumn 2009. How to Stage a Fashion Show from 2014 is all by me too. There are two sections from me in Fashion: The Whole Story from 2013. I wrote the foreword to Tom Phillips’ Menswear book, which was published in autumn 2012. I contributed a chapter about English shoe makers to Rivolta: The Measure of Elegance, which appeared in 2010. I wrote the background text in the classic jeanswear book Cult, which appeared in 1992.
