The question of what suit size you are is one that many gents get wrong. As a bespoke tailor many of our first time customers have been buying off the peg suits for years, often in the wrong size (usually men buy a size bigger than they actually are).

How do I know what suit size I am?

I had a fantastic question sent to me by my dear friend and client, Shamus Rae (Head of Innovation & Investments at KPMG) to kick start a new series of "Ask Roberto". We think the best articles are the ones that answer questions you - our fabulous clients - need answered! So here we go with today's question:

"How do you look cool in Shoreditch Silicon Roundabout in the morning and the City in the afternoon?"

I finally caught the enjoyable Guy Ritchie "reboot" of classic TV Series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. starring our very own Henry Cavill as Napoleon Solo.

I fear it won't get a sequel because the box office return wasn't so great by today's blockbuster standards, but I did like his outfits. Actually through the whole film there were only three suits. (The second blue plaid was recycled sans jacket for the last part of the movie), but here they are - fodder for your 2016 wardrobe wish list.

So there I was on Monday night halfway through the first showing of SPECTRE at my local IMAX when I realised my brain was more focused on the clothes than the plot line. Not that there was much of one (the plot line that is)... more on that later, I am currently torn between posting my review and not, since I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen the film yet.

We have our first glimpse of the new style topcoats in SPECTRE! Skyfall saw a very popular take on the classic single breasted topcoat, with Bond wearing a navy, three-button number cut to just above knee-length.

I caught a fleeting glimpse of the same in SPECTRE but with a covered button front.

Then there this new double breasted number in the new film - black, cut to below knee-length.

As a family-run award-winning tailor we’re too busy for a Social CRM Strategy. Yet 4 years later we sort of have one? Let me explain.

Our clients love us because of our personal service, the individual care & the attention they each receive rather than a “blanket approach” to tailoring & aftercare that is so common today.
