If you're given 4 minutes to speak to Peter Jones (he's a busy man) you need to cut the small talk. We had so little time that we can't even finish this introduc

Where’s the best place to get a suit? Richard James in Savile Row

When you’re not in the office, what do you wear? Jeans, T-shirt and my stripy socks of course

Do you judge people coming into Dragons Den on what they wear? 100%. If you’re not smartly dressed, then you’re not taking me seriously as a potential investor, or treating the meeting with any respect. You don't have to be wearing a suit but it should be appropriate to your business pitch

Is it important to you to look good? I take pride in my appearance: looking good is part of having an ambitious, entrepreneurial mindset, and being taken seriously in business and life.

Do you care what your fellow Dragons are wearing? I think they all share my views on looking professional.

What fragrance do you wear? Joop!

Bye. Bye.
