Menswear consultant

The skinny movement has changed tailoring over the last decade. It has affected suits, the blades of ties, lapel widths and the size of trouser hems. It is a flattering look too – more so than a lot of people realised at first. Initially a lot of people may not have wanted to wear the slimmer silhouettes but more men have tried it and found that it can work for them. It has ushered in a lot of detail changes too – the penny round collar is a good example, which we got a good reaction on last season at [men’s shirtmaker] Alexander Boyd. It feeds into that neat, tidy Edwardian look – contrast collars have a similar effect and white collars on striped shirts still look strong.
