Men's fashion has pumped through the veins of Ravi Grewal's family for generations - it's evident from the very soles of his trotters to his dapper collar's tip.
And that's why the sartorial alchemist is now Senior Director of Stuarts London - one of the stalwarts of Blighty's independent menswear retailers, dressing discerning misters since 1967 - as well as e-boutique - scouring the globe for the choicest menswear cuts.
He's passionate about chasing, sourcing and buying brands and this encyclopaedic knowledge of the furrier sex's fashion has made him the go-to expert for media looking for pearls of stylish wisdom from the master.
Grewal was knee-deep in the world of fashion before his even chin knew what a beard was. He started buying with his father at 15 and at the eyebrow-raising age of 18, was buying in his own brands and juggling Advertising and Business university studies.
He launched his fashion career by opening his own footwear shop after graduating, while his Mortar Board was still warm.
And in the halcyon days of 1998, he became a full-time buyer for family business, which his father launched in the heady days of the Sixties as a tailoring outfit.
Stuarts evolved into a trend-led menswear store in the late Seventies - on Queens Park Rangers match days, coaches full of the nearby football fans would park outside the shop and form a queue which snaked down the street.
It quickly became a focal point for the capital’s Mod movement, before riding the changing trends well into the 80s with brands including Baracuta, Fred Perry and a focus on top quality denim.
Grewal's reputation for buying authentic, trend-driven fashion meant that Stuarts was asked to provide clothes for the gritty Nick Love film ‘The Firm’ as well as the hugely popular ‘This Is England’ TV series.
And unsurprisingly, Grewal now dresses the country's most discering stars, including Kasabian, Roger Taylor, Eric Clapton, Bradley Wiggins, Ricky Hatton, JLS, Chipmunk, and even the Middleton family, as well as a host of TV and pop stars.
