Henry Cookson FRGS shot to Stardom in 2005, by being one of a team of novice arctic explorers who unexpectedly won the Scott Dunn Polar Challenge. The team then went on to enter the Guinness book of records in 2007 as the first humans to reach the most inaccessible point in Antarctica without mechanical assistance. Cookson has carried on as renowned polar guide and explorer, joining the initiative “Walking with the Wounded” guiding veteran amputees to the North Pole, in order to highlight the abilities of ex-servicemen. This great explorer came to Hong Kong and had a more sartorial adventure, a bespoke suit for those that can reach the ends of the earth.
