Luxury London tailor celebrates 85 years of business
Based in the heart of London's Savile Row - famous for its traditional bespoke tailoring for men - Savile Row Company has been crafting tailored clothes since 1938 after being founded by Gerry Doltis. Eighty-five years later, having survived various economic downturns and its London factory being destroyed during the Blitz, the business is celebrating its growth having been handed down to Gerry's granddaughter Lee-Anne Harris.
After joining Savile Row Company eight years ago while her father Jeffrey Doltis was running operations, Lee-Anne is now the third generation Doltis to take over and explains that their year-on-year growth can be attributed to their willingness to take risks and evolve with the times.

How to find the perfect watch this Father's Day
The founder and CEO of Watch Pilot, Tim Harrison, tells us how to find the perfect watch this Father's Day.
There are two aspects of watch size to consider when you're buying a Father's Day gift. The first is his wrist size and whether he's got narrower or larger wrists. Most watch straps can be adjusted to fit, but if he's at either end of the spectrum you can help yourself as a buyer. If he's slimmer, go for a leather or fabric strap that can be more easily adjusted. If he's 6ft 5" and built like a rugby player, he may need extra links in a bracelet strap or something with a bit of flexibility like rubber.

Savile Row suit designer, Kabiru Abu, tells us the latest suit trends
"Grooms getting hitched in the next couple of years have a lot to look forward to," says Savile Row suit designer, Kabiru Abu. "Gone are the days when the bride wore white, and no one remembered what the groom wore. This year and into 2024, colour will play a larger part than ever. Stand out trends include beautiful shades of red and green sitting alongside a selection of blues and greys.
"Tone on tone, a monochromatic effect is an excellent choice to achieve an exquisitely dapper look this season," adds Kabiru. "However, if grooms are reluctant to try bolder colours, off-whites and soft camel shades are always going to look stylish."
Kabiru's keen eye for detail and his exemplary customer service mean he has quietly amassed clients, including Arsenal's Thomas Partey and Sambi Lokonga, World Champion Boxers' David Haye and Anthony Joshua and Grammy Award winning singers and music video producers Bebe Winans and Dapps.

Spinnaker Watches has added a new addition to its Fleuss Collection
The Fleuss Automatic Marlborough Limited Edition watch is a new addition to Spinnaker Watches' Fleuss collection, which pays tribute to Henry Fleuss, a celebrated diving pioneer.
Spinnaker Watches pay tribute to Fleuss for his contribution to the advancement of diving technology. Whilst working at sea, Fleuss realised the need for more advanced equipment as he saw his team expend great amounts of effort and time with cumbersome equipment. In 1878, Fleuss conceptualised the cutting-edge equipment, known today as the David Submarine Escape Apparatus, that both compressed oxygen and absorbed carbon dioxide thus freeing the diver from external support. Fleuss' invention paved the way in World War II maritime warfare and is widely recognised as the first practical closed-circuit breathing apparatus.
