Congratulations on 5 years. Orlebar Brown started life as a brand that arguably does the best swim trunks in the world. Obviously, you’re a man of the water. Tell me, where’s your favourite beach in the world?
Boobys Bay on North Cornwall. You have to check it out.

Are you a father?
No, but I have 2 dogs.

Father’s Day is this Sunday. What have you bought for your father?
I didn’t. My father’s in Japan at the moment, he lives there. I would buy him a pair of Bulldog shorts if he were around.

I’m new here in London and I’m on the lookout for some great coffee spots. What’s your favourite cafe in London?
Oh god. Melrose and Morgan on Primrose Hill. It’s very good.
