For a bit of culture I’m a member at the Tate, the Royal Academy of Arts and the National Portrait Gallery. Between them there is always something interesting to see. The last couple of exhibitions I saw were Cindy Sherman at the National Portrait Gallery, Keith Haring at Tate Liverpool, and the amazing Helene Schjerfbeck at the Royal Academy. The BFI at Southbank has the best selection of classic and contemporary films and I always love an afternoon or an evening spent there.
For great shirts I head to Norton & Sons and – what can I say? – I buy all my suits there too. For cashmere, coats and jeans, I’ll head to E. Tautz or browse Matches. I love Community Clothing for basics like sweats, tees and socks. I’m not really a trainer man but will occasionally wear Vans. I love Trickers and Red Wing boots.
When buying a present, you can’t go wrong with a great case of wine from Berry Bros or a hamper from Fortnum & Mason. For something smaller, I buy from the gift shops at the Tate and the Royal Academy.
Finally, my holiday wardrobe consists of trunks from Fourth Element, a Cornish brand that pioneered the use of recycled fishing nets in swimwear. I buy my summer shirts from E. Tautz and I am very classic when it comes to sunglasses: I love a Ray-Ban Wayfarer. God knows when I last had a sunny holiday though. I am in Cornwall in January, doing a course at the St Ives School of Painting. It might be a bit nippy to go in without a wetsuit, but you never know.
