Not getting enough sleep? We've asked our wellbeing expert James to give us some tips on how to achieve an amazing night's sleep!

Sleep is the loyal friend that defends you to the end, but if your always too busy for them there’s not much they can do for you 

In today's world things are super stimulating especially in a city, life is as much nocturnal as is it early rising and the candle is burnt at both ends. Sleep repairs and rejuvenates cells, it resets hormone levels, it re-charges us cognitively, but at the very minimum we need to be sleeping six hours. Studies show that routinely sleeping below six hours leads to a 12% increased risk of early death so it should be a priority not a burden.

If sleeping a minimum of six hours (7.5 - 8 is ideal) is not possible, a nap during the day will add to the daily total. Anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes will see good result. Exercise in the morning with a good portion of cardiovascular work is one of the most effective tools for inducing quality deep sleep.

Avoiding the obvious like caffeine too late into the afternoon; intense exercise too close to bed is also incredibly stimulating, and a blue light filter is a must for the smartphone, other wise your brain thinks it’s waking up when it should be falling asleep!

Our new personalisation service, Tailor Me, is a quick and easy way to get any suit made your way for less. With a wealth of fabric, lining and customisation options available, we’re sure you’ll be able to create a suit that works around you and reflects your personality.
First pick your fabric. There are 90 to choose from including luxurious pure wools and classic checks. You can pick these from the suits you see in-store – or from our fabric selection book that our Suit Experts can show you. So far we’ve seen our customers getting really creative with these, like Taj from The Rakish Gent – who’s opted for a contrasting fabric on his waistcoat from the jacket and trousers.

Ask a Suit Expert in store for the options available and don’t be afraid to break from the norms. After all, it’s your suit and we can make it your way.

Tailor Me is available in all stores now. It’s yours in 30 days for an extra £100. Find out more here.

What’s even better about this new service is be that each suit is individually made to order and ready for collection within 30 days, all for an extra £100 on the base price of the suit.

As you know, we pull upon our 165 Years of Expertise to ensure we make men feel amazing. This also includes knowing how to delve deeper than what men wear and look at how they live their lives. That's why we've called upon the help of Gavin from Richard Ward Hair to help us understand the finer points of men's hair.
Gavin says:

"For shorter hair or those wanting to grow their hair, think about a textured French Crop. Worn at various lengths to suit your own style, it’s low maintenance - just edgier than the usual barbers short back and sides. Hair should be tapered into the neck in a gradual fade, the top and sides left longer and chopped into, texture is key and what will make this look rock."

Be free in breaking the rules. We don’t want you to conform to the norms - and certainly not for your Prom. We’ve edited the key stories for this season to make life easy for you.
Monochrome isn't just black and white - by taking a tonal approach to dressing, you'll be sure to be co-ordinated. We’ve used base notes of grey in our geo-print cotton suits, so wear these with crisp white shirts or go your own way by mixing jackets with t-shirts and beanies for a complete look.
Pattern play can be taken as far as you want this season. Go for a lightweight leaf print jacket in trend-forward green, through to loud and proud Hawaiian-inspired print shirts. We'll be wearing our printed shirts under a rich, velvet blazer to keep our style credentials intact at any event over the Summer months.
Colour pops are a sure fire way to get noticed and we have two and three-piece suits in statement colours. In order to keep you on-trend this season, we've got bright teal and rich aubergine - which we're layering with shirts and ties for a break from a rigid, formal look. If you're feeling a little bolder and want to make a style statement, mix the colour pop look with a watermelon or ice cream patterned shirt with to steal the Prom King title.
