How to find the perfect watch this Father's Day

The founder and CEO of Watch Pilot, Tim Harrison, tells us how to find the perfect watch this Father's Day.

There are two aspects of watch size to consider when you're buying a Father's Day gift. The first is his wrist size and whether he's got narrower or larger wrists. Most watch straps can be adjusted to fit, but if he's at either end of the spectrum you can help yourself as a buyer. If he's slimmer, go for a leather or fabric strap that can be more easily adjusted. If he's 6ft 5" and built like a rugby player, he may need extra links in a bracelet strap or something with a bit of flexibility like rubber.

Savile Row suit designer, Kabiru Abu, tells us the latest suit trends

"Grooms getting hitched in the next couple of years have a lot to look forward to," says Savile Row suit designer, Kabiru Abu. "Gone are the days when the bride wore white, and no one remembered what the groom wore. This year and into 2024, colour will play a larger part than ever. Stand out trends include beautiful shades of red and green sitting alongside a selection of blues and greys.

"Tone on tone, a monochromatic effect is an excellent choice to achieve an exquisitely dapper look this season," adds Kabiru. "However, if grooms are reluctant to try bolder colours, off-whites and soft camel shades are always going to look stylish."

Kabiru's keen eye for detail and his exemplary customer service mean he has quietly amassed clients, including Arsenal's Thomas Partey and Sambi Lokonga, World Champion Boxers' David Haye and Anthony Joshua and Grammy Award winning singers and music video producers Bebe Winans and Dapps.
