Through the looking glass (aka the goldfish bowl)

So many p
ress came through the doors last week it's going to be hard to keep up with their musings on Gieves' fabulous new emporium and business plans, but here are a few select words to give you a flavour of things to come...

CNBC Business Magazine - Gieves CEO Mr John Durnin sets out his vision for Gieves and we get a great name-check (see second-to-last paragraph!) although we're not too enamoured with the 'zoo exhibit' comparison...
French Truckers - thanks for stopping by guys and hope to see you in-store again soon
Permanent style - good to see the charming Mr Crompton immaculately suited on his recent tour

Mr Ducker is taking a break from blogging this weekend - so for now here's a little taster of the new Gieves.

Enjoy a great Royal Wedding day tomorrow - our warmest wishes to Wills and Kate; have a great weekend and, as it's yet ANOTHER Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK I'll be back making in the 'goldfish bowl' on Tuesday.
