We knew our new head chef David Koorey was a perfect fit for us even before we interviewed him - now we have proof! Read on to find out more about the man behind the delicious food coming out of our kitchen...
My mother initially, Marco Pierre White (when I was an apprentice) and Jason Atherton
How would you describe your style of food/cooking?
I would like to think my style is relaxed, modern, yet classical. Although I’m loving experimenting with asian flavours and techniques (who said an old dog can’t learn new tricks!)
Mallorquina Chorizo, could use it in every meal
Biggest gripe in the kitchen?
Style over substance. Food should look good, but it should always come second to taste.
What kitchen equipment/implement you can’t live without?
Sharp knife, tasting spoon, tongs and a timer.
When did you decide to become a chef?
I first asked my mother if i could be a chef at about 10 years old, never wanted to be anything else.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Veal jus poured over fries with béarnaise sauce, so good!
What do you do when you are not in the kitchen?
Spending time with my family & friends, eating out (a lot!) and golf as often as I can. And playing with my new mischievous puppy, Buddy!

If you've noticed that your shirt sleeves are too long or too short, you will appreciate that we offer a broad range of shirts available in 'shorter' and 'longer' sleeve lengths for our Tailored Fit and Classic Fit business shirts.
Once you know your Fit, Size and Sleeve Length you can Refine your search in the filter menu to find your perfect shirt!
If you have never noticed that your sleeve length was an issue, we would suggest that you are a 'regular' sleeve length.
Slim fit shirts are available with a slightly longer 'regular' sleeve length to suit the athletic body shape.
The chart below displays all sizes available. Measurements are in centimetres.
Our shirt labels indicate Fit, Collar Size and Sleeve length. Below are some tips on how to measure yourself so that you can purchase your shirts with confidence.
Take one of your best fitting shirts. Lay the collar flat and measure the inside of the collar from the centre of the button to the centre of the buttonhole. Alternatively you can ask someone to measure around your neck, allowing enough room for two fingers to be inserted comfortably between the tape measure and the neck. This should allow for a comfortable fit. This measurement should be your Collar size.
To measure your sleeve length, take one of your best fitting shirts and lay it out flat with the back facing up. Locate the centre of the base of the collar. From this point measure across the top of the shoulder and then measure along the sleeve to the end of the cuff. If the measurement falls between two sizes, choose the longer size.
Note that all measurements are after normal washing of the garment. For more information see FAQ.
If you need help with measuring or prefer to be fitted in person please get in touch or come to our Barangaroo store to be fitted on the spot!
