Five London tips for style-conscious chaps

Five London tips for style-conscious chaps
By admin


Female travelers have long been lured by the appeal of London’s shopping scene but the city is now growing in appeal for style-conscious males, according to British Airways.

In a bid to convince more men to discover this side of the UK capital, the BA team has scoured the streets to unearth these five highlights:

 

1. Visit the world famous Savile Row, the home of tailoring in London and a necessity for any man who wants to look his stylish best.

From traditional tailors that have been making bespoke suits for the rich and famous since the 19th century, to newcomers offering modern styles worn by the IT set, Savile Row has something to appeal to every taste.

2. For men in search of carefully crafted, handmade shirts, the only place to go is Jermyn Street in the City of Westminster.

With shirtmakers along the strip including Hawes & Curtis, T.M. Lewin, Thomas Pink, and Turnbull and Asser, there is a shirt perfect for every man and every occasion.

3.  For the man who wants to get the latest looks but doesn’t have the time to explore the whole city, the Selfridges and Harrods department stores are a great solution.

Featuring an entire floor for menswear (level one), Selfridges offers luxurious options in the opulent Superbrands room; while the lower ground level of Harrods is home to a range of men’s fashion and accessories as well as The Gentleman’s Lounge – a grooming emporium in the heart of the city.

4. Once the new wardrobe has been purchased, top it all off with a new hairstyle or blade shave at one of London’s impressive barbershops.

From Gentleman’s Tonic in Mayfair, to the Soho institution Tommy Guns, these men’s grooming professionals help men look their stylish best.

5. Interested to see what the next trends in fashion will look like? London has developed a reputation as the innovation capital, and nowhere is this more evident than at some of the world-leading fashion colleges that call the city home.

Pay a visit to Central Saint Martins College or the London College of Fashion for a taste of the styles likely to be on runways and shelves in the future.
