I must say, it was a complete surprise to learn recently that I had been voted one of GQ’s Best Dressed Men [in March 2012]. It wasn’t so long ago I was voted by another panel of judges the Worst Dressed. In the past I have been named both in successive years. In fact, in the early Seventies, I swung from one extreme to another so often that when I turned up for a dinner at the Master Tailors’ Benevolent Association in London’s Grosvenor Square in 1971 I was confronted by my poor tailor, whose despair was only too evident when he responded to press questions about my being chosen as the worst-dressed man for that year. In an anguished voice, he said, “But you don’t know his measurements!”
 
It was probably this experience that made me decide I simply had to go my own way and stick to what I felt suited me. As that happens to involve what many once considered to be old-fashioned double-breasted suits, I can only expect to be considered unfash­ionable; although one commentator recently called me “beyond fashion”, which added a whole new dimension to my confusion.
