Concierges' Guide to London: Shopping: Men's Fashion: Street Smarts

< Back to Concierges' Guide to London

JERMYN STREET “One of the most famous” shopping destinations in London “for handmade shirts, ties, and accessories.” The bustling street located just behind Picadilly has “an excellent choice of gentlemen’s shops” offering “off-the-shelf and made-to-measure” menswear, as well as “antiquish” accessories for the connoisseur. “You can find shaving kits made out of badger hair and shoehorns made out of ivory.” All of this in “a lovely a part of London that hasn’t changed much.” (MB, MDC, AD, GM) www.jermynstreet.net

SAVILE ROW The Golden Mile of Tailoring, this destination for “the finest” bespoke garments “has been there for so many, many years” that it counts Winston Churchill, Lord Nelson, and Napoleon III among its past habitués—yet it always remains relevant to the times. “From generation to generation, my clients have gone there, their sons have gone there, and their sons have gone there.” Of the “many shops to choose from,” standouts include “Henry Poole & Co., Huntsman, Gieves & Hawkes, Norton & Sons, and Anderson & Sheppard.” Prices for a bespoke suit can be “anything from 3,000 pounds to 30,0000 pounds.” (AD, MDC, BM, ST) www.savilerowbespoke.com
