Modcast 27

William Hunt of Savile Row, former West Bromwich Albion striker, organiser of the ‘Trilby Tour’ in the world of golf and a mean norther soul dancer!

Both guests have been most generous in donating a prize each for the competition and have supplied individual questions.  William Hunt has offered up a trip to his head Office in Saviile Row to choose a matching shirt and tie with a set of cufflinks, while John Flynn has kindly donated a ‘rare as hen’s teeth’ shirt from the long sold out Bradley Wiggins range at Fred Perry.. check collection here.. http://www.fredperry.com/men/bradley-wiggins/modernist-cycling-shirt.html
