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.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg recently revealed that he wears the same casual clothes every day because it allows him to focus on more important decisions at work. But is attire really a factor in work productivity?

As featured in the February 2015 issue of Canary Wharf Magazine, here are my style DO NOTs - from the shoes that won't get you hired to the sunglasses that will make you look like a fool:

1. Don't wear pointed shoes. Ever. They are a statement of fashion, not style and do not work for most men. If you are trying to work your way up the career ladder, your senior leaders will find your penchant for pointy shoes troubling. Trust me, I work for a lot of senior business leaders and it's their number one bugbear when it comes to appearance.
