A gentleman is the one who distinguishes himself from the masses, with a touch of eccentricity. But not the kind of eccentricity you notice before noticing the man. I do believe in dress codes, however, as I think a gentleman should wear the right clothes at the right place. A gentleman can be a surfer or a banker in a suit-and-tie. Surfers are gentlemen in their own way, in the sense that you’ll never spot a surfer catching a wave in a slip; he’ll always wear swim shorts. Keep in mind that a dress code has many sides to it. I always like to teeter on the edge of a dress code in order to maintain a sense of individuality.

For me, elegance is freedom: being free from clichés, labels, free to dress how you want. Being free also means having many interests, building a culture by getting information on everything that happens, from sports to cinema, art and literature. It’s not a matter of economic availability, it’s a question of attitude.

"That’s the whole point of fashion – you go through the disasters to find your own style. People who enjoy clothes have made untold howlers in the sartorial stakes. I look back at photographs – happily not digital, and happily nowhere near the internet – of myself aged 18, 19, 20 wearing late-Eighties clothes – massive shoulders, big drippy double-breasted one-button jackets. You’d laugh at them now. But that’s the great thing about fashion – it’s an ever-moving feast."
