I'd highly recommended Bob and his Tom James tailoring service to anyone who - like me - struggles with time and fit, or just wants to upgrade their business wear. Even before he visits me at my office he has specific ideas prepared based on a consultation where my needs are clearly put first.
He worked hard for my business, offers great clothing, is a top bloke and I look forward to working with him further.'

Bobbie was a pleasure to deal with, answering plenty of questions I'd always wanted to ask, giving some great straight forward advice and providing me with a first class suit, I'd recommend a catch up.'

With the help of Bob, I can finally look and feel like a million dollars. The solution doesn't have to be expensive and you get great customer service.
All around good guy actually - and a gent. Quite remarkable in this day and age.'

I've been using Bobbie to provide me with my clothing for about 11 months. I'd previously gone for the online suits or off the peg shops suits - none of which really fitted! The service is great, he's local to me and has no problems with morning/evening appointments. Of course the suits will be more expensive as they are made to measure but if you're wearing it for 8 hrs a day you want to look the part. I've also since bought casual wear which again is made to measure - quite simply I never really worried to much about my appearance but now see the benefit of his advice.'

It's not complicated. You don't have to be a fashion guru, just keep it simple, classic and let the smaller touches do the work for you. Ties & Pocket squares are a must. Don't ever combine belts with braces. And ALWAYS get a decent pair of shoes.
