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).

I'm frequently getting asked by my clients to give a quick run through of how to launder and iron shirts. There are decades old methods of course, but I'm going to share exactly how I do it... definitely not the perfect method but it gets the job done and most importantly saves a lot of time and hassle. With everything it takes a bit of practice but once you get the hang of it you should be able to have a shirt pressed in well under two minutes.
