East London tailoring house Alexander Boyd has, for the past century or so, been producing some of the capital's most sought after made-to-measure suits, shirts and accessories.
Current master cutter Clive Phythian trained at Savile Row stalwart Gieves & Hawkes, before stepping into the head spot at Boyd, where he is now responsible for clothing some of the snappiest dressers in Londontown.
With made-to-measure shirts starting at £175, these are chemises not to be sniffed at - and, though it's taken some cajoling here at Esquire HQ, the nice people at Alexander Boyd are this week offering three lucky readers the chance to win a made-to-measure shirt experience at the Spitalfields store.
