WARNING: This post could upset those with a sensitive disposition! I am in a bad mood today and it's got nothing to do with the heat!

I was with a new shirt customer yesterday who had just about had it with cheap off the peg shirts. He had tried to get some of his shirts altered following weight loss and to his horror, the seamstress told him she couldn't adjust them because the seams weren't sewn. They were GLUED TOGETHER. "WTF?" I hear you exclaim - yep you heard me right.

This question was sent in from Mikey Vallance, MD & Head of Transaction Banking at Santander.

So many “experts” have their own opinions on how to fold your bespoke shirt for travel. Here is my take on how to ensure your lovely bespoke tailored shirts don’t come out of your luggage looking like they’ve been sat on by an elephant.

Rolled or folded?  You get less wrinkling with a rolled shirt!

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.

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.
