There's a chap who virtually dresses me at a shop called Hornets. It's a second-hand Gent's clothing shop in Kensington Church Walk. Full of Saville Row suits and weird and wonderful military dress jackets. The shoes have been resoled so many times I've propbably paid five times as much in repairs as I did originally. They're from Hornets; they're Carvillle. The company strapline is "The shop for the amorous man", which is slightly creepy. Clothes are a mechanism of communication - people are adept at reading clothes, and you can manipulate that. Wear a bicorn hat or a hussars jacket to a party and everyone will pay attention.; My style icon Toad from The Wind in the Willows.By Sam Bompas
