Chuka’s first set of Alexandra Wood suits landed him on the list of GQ’s top 50 best dressed men.
With a career spanning law to politics and back to law, it’s always been imperative that Chuka dressed immaculately. The challenge has been getting his work style to match his personality, all within the parameters of the somewhat rigid legal and political worlds.
I first visited Chuka as an employment lawyer in 2006. When young lawyers start out, there isn’t as much flexibility in how they dress. It’s not about making a statement, but about being elegant, understated and classy. Chukka has a tall elegant frame, so I knew I enhance that fully, while also choosing subtly vibrant shades of colour, that would help to make Chuka look cooler, in a way that was still deemed acceptable in his world.
And, as the years have gone by and Chuka has become more established, we’ve been able to have even more fun with his wardrobe, getting a little more adventurous with colour, which he welcomed, especially when it meant he was regularly named as the best dressed man in politics.
