The dapper businessman admits to owning 20 tailored suits. ‘I love a double-breasted cut, perhaps a Prince of Wales cut with large lapels,’ he says. ‘I think double-breasted suits, if they are cut well, are one of the smartest ways of dressing.'
What does Ettinger use from his collection?
Well, I like to get my hands on the first samples of each product, even if they aren’t quite customer ready. They are still wonderful pieces! I wear sample cufflinks and my bridle hide billfold wallet and key case are also the first examples of those products. I haven’t changed my wallet in 14 years, and it’s still a beauty.
And what is Ettinger’s favourite piece from his collection?
My favourite item has to be our Bakerloo Portfolio Case. It’s the most practical thing I’ve ever found to use for business. It has retractable handles. It’s sleek but there’s room for a laptop, a phone, a few papers and even a small umbrella. It’s just very slim and elegant.
