Best Dressed Man In London

First note: I am not a professional photographer, hence the angle of this picture making his jacket look way too long and his torso very disproportionate. But this is not in fact the way that it really is, it is the picture and the angle of it that makes it look like this. So….sorry for that. This gentleman is a regular customer of ours, as I am sure many other places around London and I […]

On The Way To Lorsdship: Edward Green’s & Three-Piece Suits

† There are two things, both quintessentially British, that I have always wanted but have never come across the perfect opportunity of getting.

While I have never been rich, there were definitely times where I may have been able to splurge on some Edward Green’s offered on eBay or something of the sort. But simply buying […]
