If I know I am going out in the evening, I’ll save my shower till I am about to get ready, so I’m pristine. I’m not one for moisturisers and toners; the furthest I go is shampoo and conditioner, and a bit of hair gel. At the moment I am sporting a beard, so I’ll trim it all to the same length.
I pay attention to my nails. I have had this particular German nail kit for years, and I take it everywhere. If I don’t trim and file my nails, they turn into talons. I cook a lot, too, and I don’t like to see bits of food stuck under them. I’ve always thought it doesn’t matter how spectacular people might look in a bespoke suit, if they have dirty fingernails it makes me wonder what’s in their pants.
If I am planning to wear a suit, I’ll shower and then, standing in my pants, I’ll iron my shirt and put everything on at the last minute. I don’t even like sitting in a taxi or on the tube when I’ve got a nicely ironed shirt on – I can feel the creases starting. I was taught to iron in the children’s home I lived in – along with mopping, sweeping and washing up. If you iron a shirt in order – collar, cuffs, yoke, sleeves and then body – it comes out all neat and gorgeous.

I have never been a major fashionista, but I love a suit, and I did have one made for me by the tailor Stephen Williams. The great thing about a bespoke suit is that it covers up my pot belly. When I buy a suit I’ll pick shoes, belt, tie, shirt and socks, and that will be what I always wear with it. When I go to Crystal Palace games I wear my petrol blue Paul Smith suit, with a white shirt, and maroon tie and socks
