”He was easily the best-dressed man in the room (once dubbed “GQ Man” by the Guardian). Even with his plate overloaded from the buffet, Umunna was looking good. Partly it is the way he carries himself – calm, relaxed, supremely confident – but also it is those bespoke suits he wears from Alexandra Wood on Savile Row.” Tony Parsons, GQ

This success has been hard won and thanks to 13 years experience. Alexandra has plenty of wisdom to share on the art of navigating a male-dominated environment and finding success on your own terms.”

”Alexandra isn’t your usual tailor. For one, she’s a woman – one of the first on Savile Row, and still something of a rarity on the storied street. Driven by a desire to make the world of men’s tailoring more personal and less intimidating, Alexandra began her tailoring career in womenswear, Alexandra quickly found she had a hidden talent for mens tailoring.”


  1. Tailored Suits: Invest in bespoke Savile row suits made from high-quality fabrics such as wool or wool blends. Stick to classic colours like navy and charcoal, which convey professionalism and versatility. Ensure that the jacket shoulders sit squarely, the sleeves hit at the wrist bone, and the trousers break cleanly at the top of your shoes.
  1. Crisp Business Shirts: Stock your wardrobe with a variety of tailored business shirts in traditional colours like white, light blue, and subtle stripes or checks. Opt for high-quality cotton or cotton-blend fabrics that are breathable and comfortable to wear all day. Keep the collar and cuffs crisp and well-pressed for a polished look.
  1. Sophisticated Accessories: Pay attention to accessories like ties, pocket squares, and belts, as they can elevate your business image. Choose ties in silk or silk-blend fabrics with classic patterns like stripes or solids. Coordinate your accessories with your outfit, opting for complementary colours and textures that add visual interest without being distracting.
  1. Professional Footwear: Complete your business look with a pair of well-polished dress shoes in classic styles such as Oxfords, Derbies, or Monkstraps.
