What dJeffBanks2o you like most about the lead up to the Christmas party season?

I love the whole experience of shopping for the food and planning the menus for each day. All the extra little touches like chocolates and the cake. I like to design a special table cloth for Christmas lunch with matching crackers and table centre piece. I love shopping for Christmas decorations for the tree and silly treats to go in the Christmas stockings.

You have an extensive smart collection, what would be your perfect outfit for a formal Christmas party?

For a formal Christmas dinner I would choose a burgundy velvet blazer, mixed with a black satin waistcoat and black trousers with a satin ribbon down the side, paired with a white shirt and black bow tie, of course!

And a more casual office-party event?

I make a big range of jacquard design shirts in deep rich burgundies, purples, navy blue and black. Team these with any pair of black trousers or sharp black jeans.



What is the inspiration behind your party wear this season?Jeff Banks1

I love the Kashmir area of Northern India so a lot of the jacquard designs in the party shirts are based on this area and their beautiful paisley designs.

What inspired you to get involved in the Big & Tall collection?

You’ve only got to look at men these days and their shape is changing. They are either much taller than previous generations or they work out and are more muscular.

From your collection, what would be your top Christmas must-haves?

A cufflinks case, a watch and a weekend bag.
