Almost exactly a year ago I wrote about what one should do on a hypothetical trip to London. Now for a brief report on my actual trip last month. I stayed in Mayfair and did quite a bit of walking along Conduit, Regent, Piccadilly, Burlington Arcade and Jermyn Streets.
Here's a list of shops I visited or window shopped:
Shoes: John Lobb St. James, Edward Green, Cleverley, Foster & Son, Crockett & Jones, Church's, Trickers, Berluti, Cheaney
Shirts: Ede & Ravenscroft, Budd, Turnbull & Asser, New & Lingwood
Tailors: Kilgour, Anderson & Sheppard, Henry Poole, Dege & Skinner, Gieves & Hawkes, Huntsman, Meyer Mortimer, Jones Chalk & Dawson, Rubinacci
Accessories: Lock's, Swaine Adeney Brigg
I noticed the English certainly like their pyjamas and gowns (e.g. Cordings, Budd window displays). Around 6pm one day I was in front of Anderson & Sheppard and noticed a couple of sewers in the basement working on their respective jackets.
