RETAIL REPORT: LONDON

By Leo Parker. It goes without saying that London is one of the top fashion capitals of the world and the lucky chaps of the UK’s most fashionable city have plenty of choice when it comes to dressing in a dapper way. Here’s a quick look at three of the best London-based stores, for those who want to showcase their sartorial style.

 

GIEVES & HAWKES, SAVILE ROW:

Somewhat of an institution on the London fashion scene, Gieves & Hawkes is one of the City’s most reputable and revered tailors, and the quality of their wares is unparalleled. Based on the world-famous Savile Row, this purveyor of fine gentleman’s wear is certainly a must-see starting point for visitors to London who want to ramp up their sophistication with a dress shirt or some fine accessories. gievesandhawkes.com

ROKIT, BRICK LANE:

Brick Lane, in the East side of Central London, is positively chock-full of vintage style second hand stores positively filled to the brim with awesome vintage clothing which, far from having had their day, are only just beginning. The rustic Rokit store on Brick Lane potentially has the most impressive collection of second-hand sartorial goods and, as you can see from their well-stocked shelves above, there really are some fine pieces to get your hands on. And don’t let the website put you off – this is one of those occasions where bricks and motar beats the web hands down. rokit.co.uk

Once you navigate the crowds of fashionistas knocking about to get to the store, you won’t be disappointed. Offering a range of men’s clothing and accessories, this great shop is rarely without throngs of visitors checking out the latest labels.
