It was a real pleasure to work with Matt Harris recently, when I was recommended to him by a long-standing client of mine, Mino Themistocli.

Matt was getting married to his gorgeous fiancée, Lucy Hitchenor, on January 18th 2014 at the beautiful Rowton Castle Hotel in Shropshire. Standing at about 6'5" tall, broad shouldered and lean, Matt is built for tailoring - with a very specific idea in mind we got together in November to work out what he wanted to achieve.

About 5 months ago we visited the fine folks of Drakes of London at their offices in Savile Row to put together a collection of ties for our Autumn / Winter 2013/2014 collection.

Why Drakes? Well, they are quite simply amazing ties. Handmade right here in London using the best silks they rival the likes of Ferragamo and Hermes (2 of my favourite tie brands) for quality, design and elegance. They are the perfect compliment for the shirts and suits I create for my customers.

I can’t believe it’s been two months since my last update…tsk tsk and slapped wrists. A thousand apologies.

To tell you the truth, aside from the usual excuse of being extremely busy with my tailoring business, I was enjoying our fantastic but brief British Summer.

I traded in my Vespa GT 125 for a Piaggio LT500 Touring Sport and rode around glorious London as much as possible, my linen blend Roberto Revilla Bespoke shirts, jackets and trousers got plenty of use!

With (hopefully) spring and warmer weather approaching, it would be easy for me to talk about lighter weight suits - but the aspect of the wardrobe I have been talking about more often of late has been the smart/business casual side.

When I first started in this business my first boss gave me a hard time for walking into the office wearing a tie clip. Yes, I said this business as in fashion! The problem with that place was that, although they are still today one of the biggest custom suit makers in the world, only a percentage of employees are actually “fashion-aware”.

The rest, like my dear old boss, just looked like their customers… accountants, lawyers etc.

Anyway I am getting off point. I love tie clips as much as I love other accessories such as cufflinks, lapel pins and pocket squares.
