Profile

When did you start working for Crane Brothers?
- March 2010

What's your role within the company?
- Manager / Made to measure tailoring trainer.

Describe what style means to you.
- Whether it is architecture, furniture or fashion I like modern but also classic clean lines. I'm a big big fan of all three of these from the fifties, particularly Scandinavian architecture and furniture. Probably inevitable being a free thinking child of the fifties.

What are your personal three wardrobe essentials and why?
- Dark suit, dark tie and a stout pair of brown English brogues. The suit and tie will cover most occasions and the brogues whether being worn with a suit, or blazer and chino's cross over from the week to the weekend.

Favourite place to eat in your city?
- Charley Nobles. It's a meat lovers paradise.

What was the last thing that you recall being inspired by?
- Two things: watching my granddaughter Millie take her first steps and standing centimetres away from a Colin McCahon painting. Both awe-inspiring and both brought a smile and a tear to my eyes.

When did you start working for Crane Brothers?
- Late March 2016.

What's your role within the company?
- Sales Assistant.

Describe what style means to you.
- If I were to ponder it, I'd say style is a channel through which all individuals leave their unique imprint on the world around them- an often unconscious facet of our being that not only affects the way the world sees us, but the way we view ourselves.

What are your personal three wardrobe essentials and why?
- In the case of brogues, shoes are one of the few items of clothing where holes can become an asset. I have a lovely chestnut pair that I wear a lot, the perfect balance between formality and self-expression.
A wool overcoat keeps me warm in Wellington- A beige one over a navy blazer is a frequent choice in winter. The blazer will do fine on its own for warmer times.
Waistcoats are a recent passion, and I'll match one to my outfit wherever possible.

Favourite place to eat in your city?
- I love the garden at the back of Olive, the personality of which can shift depending on the time of year. The tapas aren't too bad there either.

What was the last thing that you recall being inspired by?
- The work of my peers and friends in the design and illustration fields regularly inspires and invokes envy in me.
