My male readers have been asking for some bloke-specific posts so this one’s for you chaps.

I think it’s so difficult for small indie fashion boutiques to compete with department stores, shopping arcades or online these days, so hats off to mens boutique Gatsby in Marlow which is playing strongly on its customer service as its big calling card.

Gatsby also stocks Eton shirts. Moody men not in stock.

If you’re looking for a sharp suit, new shirt or attendant accessories but don’t have the time or inclination to go shopping, just put in a ‘Trunk call’. Basically, have a leisurely chat to the Gatsby stylist about what you’re looking for, the kind of things you like and dislike, who your favourite presenter is on Top Gear (sorry, am I stereotyping you? LOL!)  and you’ll be a sent a trunk of clothes to try on at home, including the little extras that you might ordinarily forget like belts, cufflinks, socks etc.

You have two days to try everything with your existing wardrobe, and anything you don’t want, well, you don’t pay for it. If you’re within a 10 mile radius of Marlow, there are no postage charges and everything delivered and picked up from your door. It’s probably worth a conversation even if you’re a little further afield – see just how far that customer services really travels!

With superslick brands including Richard James, Sunspel, Eton Shirts and Crockett & Jones stocked in the store, I can guarantee you this at least – you won’t end up looking like Jeremy Clarkson.
