Performance Coach

“How would you describe shopping with Henry in 3 words?
Reassuring, exciting, absolute pleasure

How would you describe the results of us working together in 3 words?
Confidence-boosting, game-changing, profound

What positive changes has it had on your life? Have you received any feedback from friends, family or work colleagues?
So many positive changes. Having Henry's support and expertise means that I feel so much more confident in myself. I feel that I'm on the same level as my clients rather than being embarassed or uncomfortable with how I looked before. I feel credible and powerful, but still myself. On a practical level, it's so much easier to get dressed in the morning or pack for going away. I feel more strategic and pulled together which has freed up a lot of headspace. I also feel more pleasure towards clothes and my visual identity. I enjoy looking at things now rather than not knowing where to start. Clients totally picked up on this. As soon as I started wearing my new outfits they complimented me on my style and clothes. This hadn't happened before. My husband also loved what I was wearing.

How did you find working with a male personal shopper? What would you tell someone who was potenitally hesitant to do so?
I really liked it. I never considered it to be a barrier or blocker. In fact I saw it as a bonus as I preferred to have a male insight. I didn't think about it at the time, but I enjoyed that it was more neutral than I imagine working with a woman. I think the energy is different - calmer and less of an expectation that I should know what I want from clothes. Also no comparison with a female shopper.

Which part of the process did you find most interesting or enjoyable? Why was this?
Getting the clothes! I really enjoyed doing the prep work as it was great to actually focus my attention on what I wanted to achieve. It made it feel more strategic than just going shopping. I was nervous that the day together could be awkward or uncomfortable eg if I didn't like things or felt forced into things. This didn't happen at all. Henry is gentle but commanding meaning that I trusted him 100% but also felt he was going to be honest with me and I could be honest in return.

Were there any parts of the process that you found less useful or enjoyable? If so, why?
No I enjoyed it all.

Have you had any experiences with a personal shopper before me? (In-store, online or independent?) What were the noticeable differences?
No. It's something I'd considered but until I found Henry I wasn't drawn to the people I saw. I liked Henry's strategic and calm approach which was obvious from his site and also the clothes he picked for other clients. He felt more "cool" than some of the other shoppers I saw. Some of them looked a bit "naff" (terrible word but I think sums it up!). I felt less inclined to use a store shopper as I would imagine they may be motivated by sales targets etc. I'd wanted to do the jeans shopping thing in Selfridges but I find that vibe a bit intimidating so didn't. Also I don't like that you don't get chance to build a relationship - you don't know who you're going to get.

“How would you describe your experience with Henry in 3 words?
Focused, Fun, Inspiring

How would you describe the results of us working together in 3 words?
Wardrobe I love!

What positive changes has it had on your life? Have you received any feedback from friends, family or work colleagues?
Yes - positive feedback across the board.
The wardrobe edit means I open door each day to a range of clothes I enjoy wearing.

What would you tell a potential client to convince them they should book an appointment with me?
A few days with Henry and I had a wardrobe for all seasons that I was confident to stride out in again; the clutter was recycled - and best of all Henry's knowledge of more ethical fashion choices meant I was able to support more responsible retailers.”

Martin Wakeman

Senior Partner

“How would you describe your experience with Henry in 3 words?
Transformative, professional, enjoyable

How would you describe the results of us working together in 3 words?
Built my confidence

What positive changes has it had on your life? Have you received any feedback from friends, family or work colleagues?
Henry helped build my confidence and my professional profile. Too many men in business take no real time to think about their clothing or what it says about them. With Henry's help, I have helped to introduce a more stylish professional look, which matches our clients' sensibility and also breaks down the traditional office-gender barrier (blokes in suits, not caring very much about their style and women caring too much). I cannot recommend him too highly, and he is a pleasure to work with.

What would you tell a potential client to convince them they should book an appointment with me?
Henry will give you confidence to develop a personal and distinctive style which meets your professional and life-style profile. Dressing better increases the impact anyone has socially and in business, and it builds confidence too.

Which part of the process did you find most interesting or enjoyable? Why was this?
The very first exercise involved supplying Henry with a series of images that reflected my sensibility, and on that basis he did a wardrobe clear out. This was scary but liberating, starting from a nearly clean slate.

Were there any parts of the process that you found less useful? If so, why?
Nope, all very efficient and productive.

Consistant image

What would you tell a potential client to convince them they should book an appointment with me?
If you are looking for a consistent image, great taste and understanding personal shopper, then Henry is the one, he never pushed for his own style, instead he first understood my requirements and took all the experience toward my personal goals

Which part of the process did you find most interesting or enjoyable? Why was this?
His personality and understanding, flexibility on budget and locations of shopping. I never felt pressured or "I have to" pay or do more than what I want.

Were there any parts of the process that you found less useful? If so, why?
Not at all.

Positive feedback from many people

Mapping the wardrobe to see what I needed and finding pieces that I would never even consider and later on noticing how well it looked

Sometimes its tricky to make a busy schedule 9-5 work, even then Henry makes it work

Upgraded, stylish, cool

What positive changes has it had on your life? Have you received any feedback from friends, family or work colleagues?
I immediately feel much better dressed and more confident. It's only day 2 so limited feedback so far!

What would you tell a potential client to convince them they should book an appointment with me?
Henry has a wealth of experience, is extremely customer-focused, and nothing is too much trouble. We spent 7.5 hours shopping on day 1 and it felt like an hour. The results were immediately visible. And it was good fun!

Which part of the process did you find most interesting or enjoyable? Why was this?
Most interesting was culling 50% of my current wardrobe, followed by trying out completely new looks. It was enjoyable to learn about Henry's perspective on the industry and on personal shopping in general.

Were there any parts of the process that you found less useful? If so, why?
Every stage was insightful and relevant.

Irene Celli

Head of Marketing

“I received the full styling service as gift for my birthday from my husband and I can honestly say this has been the BEST GIFT EVER.
Henry has been able to understand who I am and what I needed. He gently pushed me in the right direction and helped me achieve a renewed sense of confidence and empowerment that I didn’t think was possible.
He introduced me to brands I would have not shopped and helped me portray a refreshed better version of me which is what I wanted.
Henry’ style is very versatile and through his rigorous planning and charming manners you are assured to get real results whilst having a great time.
I can’t wait to book my next session with Henry as I think this has now become my guilty pleasure!”

Simon Mitchell

Civil Service

“After wasting a lot of money buying stuff that didn’t fit me and generally avoiding the horror of clothes shopping I found myself wearing rags. It was when I put on an ill-fitting shirt I bought in 1998 I realised something needed to be done.
Henry was calm, attentive and meticulous. We ditched most of my worn-out clothes at the wardrobe edit, deciding to keep a few items that had the versatility to be worn with my new wardrobe.
Henry had listened to me and done his research – the experience of shopping was stress-free and thorough and I now look smart and appropriately dressed for the first time in about a decade.
Within my new wardrobe I have a selection of outfits perfect for work, the weekend and evenings out.
The handover document is partially useful in the mornings to quickly see complete outfit combinations, meaning I do not need to worry about what goes with what.”

Bruce Jelly

“Having recently moved house, I felt it was time to reenergise my wardrobe and was introduced to Henry by my daughter who has used his services on a few occasions.

From the first introduction, via email, I found Henry to be very professional and easy to work with. He did not pressure me to have answers to all his questions and as I am retired, my wardrobe needs are probably different to his other clients but this did not seem to faze Henry and any concerns I may have had on whether he would be able to style a more mature gentleman for every day life disappeared in the first shop we visited.
Henry stuck to my brief but certainly took me out of my comfort zone and I tried on clothes that were a different size and style to many I had been wearing for the last few decades.
I have had many favourable comments regarding the fit of the new clothes and how much younger I look.

Henry managed to find me a whole new wardrobe in one afternoon including overcoats and outer wear and introduced me to the idea that one can indeed have items tailored to create a perfect fit!

I found Henry to be very pleasant company and hugely knowledgeable of the different styles of men's clothing. He stuck within my budget and I would happily recommend Henry to anyone needing a new wardrobe.”

JD Lee

Co-Founder & CEO of Pocketmath

“Henry is a remarkable personal shopper. His methodical approach towards building out your wardrobe, coupled with his attention to detail and acute fashion advice, is greatly appreciated!
He will gently persuade you to explore your boundaries.
Henry's service and experience will help you find what you need in no time at all. I'm a happy client! ”

Kenna Murdock

“I stumbled across Henry Wilfrid quite by chance on google, not living in UK it was a little bit of a gamble, my word did that gamble pay off!
I had a very short visit and Henry came up trumps with three beautiful outfits for special occasions.
I spent a wonderful, unforgettable afternoon with Henry, he made me feel very comfortable and is good company!
I also felt he was honest in his opinions and came away thoroughly satisfied with my purchases, all of which I have received compliments for.
I would recommend Henry without hesitation.”

Jeremy Arnold

Managing Director

“40 suddenly crept up on me and at the same time I became a managing director of a company. I didn't know what my style was or how to present myself at this new stage of my life. That's when I found Henry

His services have been utterly brilliant. He instantly got who I was. Who I had been in the past and worked with me creating how I wanted to present myself now.

I left with a great new wardrobe but also the clarity around what suits me and what doesn't. I also learnt how to put together loads of different looks. Literally everyone I meet still complements me on what I'm wearing.

It was one of the best things I did last year and will be using him again this year. ”

Chris Michell

Senior Property Professional

“Henry Wilfrid provides a really first-rate professional service.
He established my brief efficiently and accurately, and then delivered it perfectly.
I was a little nervous about the wardrobe audit, but his easy manner turned this into a very worthwhile, learning experience, one that built rapport and understanding.
On the day this homework delivered great results. We worked through shops he had selected for me in only a few hours. The items fit my aspirations (and budget) perfectly.
I have received a lot of complements since and this new range of smart casual wear has increased my confidence and my enjoyment of events and social occasions.
I look forward to working with him again at the change of the season and I am happy to recommend his consultancy services strongly. ”

Lisa Hundt

Charity Fundraising Consultant / External Examiner UCL / Trustee

“I first approached Henry as part of my transition from maternity leave to freelance consultancy. Having neglected my wardrobe in part owing to raising children and as a result of my complacency I found that my clothes no longer reflected the person and professional position I was now in.

I am not a natural shopper, preferring to be in and out and don't have the time to spend researching fashion magazines or online shops. Henry was the perfect antidote.

He took the time to understand what it was I wanted whilst gently encouraging me to go outside of my comfort zone. Having pieces put aside made shopping a breeze and most importantly fun.

Henry is a pleasure to spend time with, a genuine warmth makes you feel at ease and never judged. He is also a complete professional and knows his craft.

I now have a wardrobe that I feel I can comfortably turn to for any occasion and most importantly, makes me feel happy with what I see in the mirror. ”

Rhiannon Jones

Principal Policy Adviser, CBI

“Henry was tasked with finding my wedding dress. No small task. From the start he was honest, and managed my expectations that he couldn't guarantee he'd find me "the" dress. I knew he was underplaying his talents. But I also understood where he was coming from, a wedding dress is more than just what it looks like, it's how you feel in it.

After a comprehensive dialogue and sharing ideas he planned a full day, seamlessly reserving a series of dresses in my size around SW1. He opened my eyes to designers that he knew would suit my shape; he transformed dresses with accessories; he educated me on what a seamstress could do; he saved me so much time and from any despondency; and above all, he was so much fun and patient.

Within a morning Henry had found my dress. The dress I wish I could wear every single day of the year. I can't thank him enough!”

Dan Baxter

Managing Director

“Henry what can I say? This was our second outing and the experience surpassed all expectations again. You have taken what has been for me a mundane and arduous task, and breathed passion and life into it. I cannot believe that at 35 I can actually say hand in heart that I enjoy shopping!
Your insight into what items will complement and suit your clients style is outstanding, and for those like me without a style, I couldn't have been in more capable hands to find one.
What strikes me the most about Henry Wilfrid Personal Shopping experience is the consideration for occasion. This where you really deliver on promise, with an in depth knowledge of current trends and an understanding of your clients needs. In short you get this absolutely spot on. You have exactly the right balance of friendly and professional advice to ensure the day is a success, encouraging your clients when they need a little push beyond their comfort zone, and always finding the right cut, shape and style to ensure the client will confidently wear the new wardrobe for the season ahead.
Thanks Henry. If anyone needs a push to do this then all I would say is. DO IT!!”

Cerys Martin

Solicitor

“I have commissioned Henry's professional services 3 times now and have found him to be a life-saver, and a pleasure to be with. All three times I have gone home with fantastic clothes which I look and feel great in, and which I wear all the time. He is great at suggesting new ideas (and shops) which has massively helped steer me away from my increasingly safe and boring rut. He is also sensitive and non-pushy so would I expect work well with people who do not like shopping or who might otherwise find the whole experience embarrassing. Together with have found an amazing outfit for my brothers wedding (tricky as I was 6 months pregnant). He refused to allow me to go for a maternity look, and instead I looked sharp and modern. He also helped me find comfortable, practical and stylish clothes for my maternity year, challenging my idea that only tracksuit bums would work - I ended up with clothes which I will I have worn loads and which I feel great in. More recently we have found some great pieces for when I go back to work, and for going out. He is sensitive to budget and needs, pre-shops so the experience is not exhausting. His extensive experience and passion for clothing and style shows in his advice. I have recommended him to my husband, brother, sister in law and sister in laws mother all of whom came away singing his praises also. I am still working on my mum....”

Toasty Kunheim

Senior Creative Producer ESPN

“Henry is everything that you could want in a stylist and personal shopper. He is a consummate professional, able to strike the balance between creating a new look while remaining faithful to an individual’s character. He is also an absolute joy to be around – highly positive, creative, effortless
and fun with expansive knowledge of the fashion industry and cutting edge trends. 
While working with Henry to dress the ESPN team of presenters he proved to be invaluable, making a marked difference to our on-screen presence.

Michael Chilton

Operations Director

“Henry dressed my ushers, best man and myself for our spring wedding. He made the experience truly memorable for all of us and was a fountain of knowledge to each of our individual needs and styles. 
Henry went that extra mile by traveling between London and the Midlands for fittings for
Myself and four ushers. He assessed and made accurate recommendations to suitable cuts and styles on the individual suits but also on the group look; delivering a clear understanding of what we were after (and all within the forecasted budget!). 
It’s clear that he truly understands the clothing industry but just as important he also understands impeccable service. 
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Henry, his passion and drive is inspirational.”

Juliette Kopec

Executive Assistant

“I was introduced to Henry through a PA Networking event. Myself and a group of High Profile Executive Assistants met at The Langham Hotel to be introduced to Henry who had organised a salon show presentation to be showcased by models, with look books and accessories also on display. Henry very quickly took great attention for each of our needs, and without us knowing, put together some looks on models and dedicated a look to each of us, taking into account our specific job roles, our shapes/sizes and personality. 
I was so impressed by Henry’s swift assessment of our individual requirements, from the versatility of our day to night time outfits to our sizes, colourings and budget that by the time Henry had emailed the next day with his follow up, I had booked an appointment for a personal one to one session. 
Henry was perceptive and intuitive in his approach to selecting items that I would normally never had been drawn to – and wasn’t afraid to persuade me (very gently!) to try out new shapes, style and colours – even down to recommending accessories to complete the look. Henry was never pushy, always listened to the feedback on each item he had selected, and worked with me until we had the most perfect selection of items. 
I have received so many compliments on all the items that Henry selected with me that I always feel so confident when I wear them. 
I would thoroughly recommend Henry Wilfrid for the most heavenly personal shopping experience – he should be a speed dial in every address book.”

Adam Ratcliffe

Investment Director

“I have been delighted with Henry’s expertise and level of service. He immediately put me at ease, quickly identified styles that were suitable for my requirements, and expertly curated the most appropriate pieces to help create stylish and flexible outfits. His vast knowledge of tailoring made the whole process complete. 
Overall, it has been a thoroughly enjoyable and educational experience and I look forward to future sessions with Henry.”

Hannah Hollings

Celebrity Stylist & Personal Assistant

“I would never hesitate to recommend Henry, he repeatedly brings fantastic ideas to the table, and always makes my life as a personal assistant easy. Having worked in the entertainment industry for 5 years it’s very rare to come across such a honest and genuine character who is willing to jump through hoops immediately. He has always made my clients feel at ease and comfortable in his presence. His calm, warm character is a pleasure to be around and without realising it you’ve made a fantastic friend in Henry. 

I couldn’t recommend a more perfect person to be your personal shopper. He never fails and will always surprise you when you least expect it.”

Darrell Currie

BT Sports Presenter

“Henry is the best personal stylist I’ve worked with. His knowledge of trends and styling is second to none. He understands what looks good on me and he has a great way of expressing what works and what doesn’t. 
Henry dressed me for my TV Presenting role at sports network ESPN, he picked suits for me and his tailoring ability was superb. The final cut felt made-to-measure every time. I was so impressed by his work, I asked Henry to update my personal wardrobe too and quickly we became good friends. He has such a great ability to pick clothes that are perfectly suited to me and he does it in such a friendly and professional manner. 
My wife attended one of our styling sessions and straight away she wanted Henry to re-work her wardrobe too. He opened her eyes to new looks, styles and cuts that she had never considered wearing. Henry has become a family friend now and is always reliable. 
I’ve recommended Henry to many people in TV and all of the colleagues I’ve introduced him to agree that he’s a fantastic stylist.
