My self-summary
A bespoke tailor, Pisces (non practicing), living in North London, 6'2ft, part British, part Italian with a pinch of Sierra Leone thrown into the mix for good measure. I have a passion for travel and love a European weekend city break and am spending a lot of time in India this year. Also a lover of eating out, horse racing, galleries, cinema, new exhibitions, theatre, ballet, gigs, shopping (the importance of good suits and good shoes should be taught to every young man at school).

As a very social person I do prefer being out and exploring, but there is always a time and a place for a night on the sofa if the right woman is by my side, the bottle of wine is good and the movie isn't Sex and the City 1 or 2.

I am looking for someone, preferably female from birth, who has lots of energy and drive, so that we can share in the continuous exploration of London and locations further afield, who can keep up with me as there is a lot to keep up with. Someone who is elegant when it is needed but just as comfortable being dressed down and geting mucky when it comes to being out in the countryside and amongst nature, who knows her own worth, with strong opinions and a little bit of bite is also important.

A well tailored suit is to women what lingerie is to men so matching clean bras and briefs is a must for any lady who comes into my life.

What I’m doing with my life
Trying my best to be more of a Knight in shining armour and not a retard in tin foil, to act my age and not my shoe size whilst looking for a woman who can beat me at thumb wars or an arm wreastle, working too many hours in the fashion industry as a bespoke tailor on Savile Row, London creating ridiculously expensive clothes for men and occasionally women who have more taste and money than sense.
I’m really good at
Does breathing count? Other than that the list includes Monopoly (never been beaten), late nights and early mornings, playing devil's advocate, staying buoyant, listening, foot rubs, wining games of snap, arm wrestling, the after eights game and roshambo (it's all in the wrist action), sewing, drawing, painting (again it's all in the wrist action) anything which involves using my hands, playing thumb wars, giving massages and reaching things in high places, awkward places or down the back of the sofa.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and eyebrows and that I'm no slouch when it comes to my legs and bottom, it all really depends on whether they approach me from the front or back. Other than that probably the fact that I'm in good shape, 6'2ft, have big hands, size 10 feet (but what does that matter), always dress well and think fast on my feet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Yes I like books, movies, music and food. It would be greatly worrying for all concerned if I didn't. This section serves little purpose as it would be impossible to list my favourites in all of the above categories as it is a constantly changing/evolving list and even if it was possible forming an opinion on a person based on their tastes in books, films and food is not a good idea unless of course the only book of choice is Mein Kampf, the first movie of choice is Emmanuelle 3: A Lesson in Love and the only food listed is KFC then there might well be good reason to stay away. However since OKC has asked it would be rude not to give an answer.

Books (I'm going to include comics here as I do have a soft spot in my heart for the grown up variety): Swamp Thing, Lucifer, Preacher, Sandman, V for Vendetta, The League of Extraordinary Gentleman/Black Dossier, any Frank Miller Batman and Superman.

Alice in Wonderland, Moby Dick, The God Delusion, Playboy (does that count as a book), La Bas,
The Prince, Jurassic Park, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Republic, Outliers, Tipping Point, Mice and Men, Lord of the Flies, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, American Psycho, Catcher in the Rye, Heart of Darkness, Great Expectations, a Rebours, The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Favorite films: Tangerine, The Warriors, Big Fish, Beasts Of No Nation, Goodfellas, Whiplash, The Legend of 1900, The Big Lebowski, A Prophet, Bubba Ho-Tep, Eastern Promises, Kill List, Lord of War, Dirty Dancing, The Goonies, The Shawshank Redemption, Fargo, It's A Wonderful Life, Airplane, The Naked Gun, The Wolf of Wall Street, Fight Club, Dallas Buyers Club, Trading Places, Chinatown, Mary Poppins, Top Gun, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Labyrinth, Cloud Atlas, Star Wars, 2001 A Space Odyssey, Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, any of the Before Sunset/Sunrise/Midnight films.

This list is too long and could go on and on.

More films and food to follow soon, if you can't wait just ask.
Six things I could never do without
Why only six? Air, water, shelter, fire and food are obviously essential.

This list will continue to expand over the following weeks and months.

Fingers, because you can always count on them
My legs, because they've always been there to support me
Basil, parsley and coriander
An intelligent woman
The Sunday Times, Independent, Guardian, The Sun and the Daily Mail (only if I find it on the bus or train as I would never pay for the rag) I'm starting to fear I'm becoming a spermologist.
Punctuation and grammar
Tailors shears, sewing machine and iron
My wardrobe
Private Eye
My cat
Papaya (the world's most amazing fruit) followed a close second by Pineapple (any man who doesn't eat Pineapple is a man best avoided)
Doughnuts and Cronuts
My debit card
Cuban cigars
Tom Ford and Penhaligon's fragrances
Handmade shoes
French cheese
Yorkshire gold tea
Leatherman multitool
Radio 4 and LBC
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If love is blind then why is lingerie so popular and with that in mind why are so many people disappointing when they take their clothes off? If you get sent to prison for not paying your TV licence do you still get to watch TV in your cell whilst serving your sentence? Why does almost no one on here get the answer to the'Wherefore art thou Romeo?' question correct? Here's a clue the answer is not Where, How or Who cares/wtf? If onions make people cry then which if any vegetables make people smile? Why does no one eat Turkey eggs? Who do the shoes on top of the bus stop roof belong to? What is the speed of dark? Why did the fish crawl out of the oceans? As you can see I am a very deep thinker of very challenging thoughts. The more I think the more aware I become that I am better suited to doing rather than thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday night when in London I can be found mostly out and about at a concert/gig, seeing a play, maybe in Soho seeing friends, eating well, either upstairs at The Blind Pig or downstairs drinking rum shack punch in the basement of El Camion.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My grandparents meet on OK Cupid, I do all my own stunts, I used to be addicted to soap but now I'm clean, I always shower naked, beyond that the really private stuff should probably be saved until after we have exchanged bodily fluids or at the very least are on first name terms, so for now I'll share this snippet, I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy.
You should message me if
If you are the kind of person who likes adventures, enjoys fireworks, isn't afraid to make eye contact whilst eating a banana, is an active user of cheesecake, drinks their red and white in separate glasses as mixing the two does not make for rosé, enjoys exploration and travel, a bit of Bowie and a lot of Pulp, doesn't mind having her hair pulled, has no fear of breaking bones, has child bearing hips, has parents who aren't related to each other and you just so happen to be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious then you are my kind of woman.
The two of us
