Cally Russell opens up on his life in clothes

What’s the last piece of clothing you bought?

A Selected Homme navy peacoat. It’s really warm for winter. It was £120 but I caught a price drop and grabbed it for £80.

What are you addicted to buying?

Shirts – I buy new ones every month. Not suit ones but smart casual.

Best ever bargain?

Until recently I didn’t own a tux but I got a total bargain recently and picked up a Jack Jones skinny one for £70. Since then I’ve worn it about once a week to events so it’s paid for itself already.

Who has great style?

I’m a big fan of Tom Hardy’s style. Laidback Scandinavian smart.

Name your favourite high street shop.

I’m a huge fan of Selected Homme from Sweden – they sell in Topman and also on Mallzee. I would say about 30 per cent of my current wardrobe is by them.

Any fashion disasters you’d care to tell us about?

I recently bought a pair of black skinny jeans that looked a bit too like leather trousers for my liking. I 
tried them on and then they went straight back into the box.

What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe?

Either a burgundy Selected Homme Oxford shirt or a pair of black Farah Vintage skinny jeans (I might own two pairs of these as I like them so much).
