The tailor, 25, said: “It’s hard for men to show exuberance. But I love what I do and do it for my enjoyment.”
Typical daywear is knee-high riding boots, waistcoat, jacket and tails.
Zack often sports a top hat and cane to shops.
But he does admit owning a pair of M&S pants.
At 14 his family found his great-grandfather’s old suits while moving home.
To Zack’s glee they fitted. He said: “I decided to burn my only jeans on a bonfire. It was a real turning point.
“On non-school uniform days I would dress in three-piece suits.
“When I got to sixth form I’d dress in historical clothing every day. I was surprised to be voted best dressed in the leavers’ book.”
Zack, from West Sussex, designs and sews his outfits. Some take a year to perfect.
