The Brighton tailor whose identity became his business

Zack MacLeod Pinsent dresses as a Regency gentleman every day, saying that the clothing is a "huge confidence builder".

He ceremoniously burned his last pair of jeans when he was 14-years-old and hasn't looked back since.

His passion for historical outfits has led him to take up a career in tailoring, making clothes in period styles at his workshop in Brighton, East Sussex.

He now has clients overseas and has recently returned from a business trip to New York.
