I’m best known for specialising in sartorial style and this was my inspiration for the Ottaway Style collection; the celebration of true British heritage style, reflected no better than houndstooth, herringbone and tartan.
As a menswear stylist and image consultant, attention to detail is fundamental to me. With socks offering the opportunity to add style and personality into any occasion, they are an accessory that is the epitome of attention to detail and why I’m so delighted to be collaborating with my favourite sock brand, London Sock Co.
I’ve been fortunate to work with a wide range of gentlemen from the world of sport, celebrity and business, which has accentuated my belief that style is about being an individual and expressing yourself through what you wear; an effortless and natural ability to stand out from the crowd.
I am originally from Essex and started out my working career as a professional footballer. Although I always held a strong interest in fashion it was a career ending injury that finally pushed me in the formal direction of fashion, which has been an incredible journey and continues to be so. Several career accolades include producing and featuring in the David Gandy style guide app and styling and writing for some of the biggest publications in men’s fashion.
