So what makes a man stylish, in your opinion?
It's always important that a man takes care of himself; in the way he presents himself – but not too much. Not someone that really overdoes it. If you're wearing a nice suit, it's how you hold yourself, without overthinking what you're going to wear. I always get whatever I'm wearing the next day out the night before – but that's because I'm organised, not because I'm thinking how I want to look.
Someone that's polite, who has good manners, who opens doors for ladies and anyone in general, and who's not afraid of being that person – I think that's a nice quality to have. I was brought up that way by my parents, and I've done the same with my kids.
Remarkably, when we're at a table, if Victoria gets up to go to the toilet, the kids will stand up for her – when I give them a little bit of an elbow! I was brought up like that, so it's important that they are.
What's your first memory of Selfridges?
My mum and my gran used to take me to Selfridges; it was always one of those treats on a Saturday morning. We were a family from the East End of London, coming up to the West End, and if we were lucky, we would be able to walk through Selfridges, and I always saw it as a special thing to do. We couldn't afford to go in and buy a lot of the things, and that's what makes it special. Those moments really stick in my memory.
Selfridges is about an experience: when you are going to buy a suit or a pair of shoes, or have a coffee, or an ice cream, or have your make-up done, it's all about an experience – and that's what Selfridges has always been about, even more so now. Even if you don't want to buy anything, even if you just want to experience being in there, it's a great place.
