Managing Editor

After graduating from St Andrews University, Rupert attended RMA Sandhurst before commissioning into the Royal Artillery and serving for seven years. His long-term interest in bespoke menswear was further piqued by going to Savile Row tailors for his uniforms. Aside from this, he has a keen interest in 18th and 19th Century British art and is an enthusiastic - if highly inexpert - polo player.
