The best menswear shops in London

The best menswear shops in London

London is one of the ‘big four’ fashion capitals and is home to the most stylish gentlemen on the planet. It boasts countless stores stocked with sartorial goods. From the quintessential department store – the very concept birthed in the UK’s capital – to a diverse selection of independent shops, London’s menswear stores offer something for every style.  You’re probably familiar with the major players, all of which are a good place to start. Selfridge’s, Harrods, and Harvey Nichols offer the latest clothing straight from the catwalks. In these behemoths, you’ll find the best of British – from Paul Smith to Burberry – alongside global names from Paris, Milan and Scandinavia. The advent of e-commerce has meant that these stores have had to diversify their offering, too – buying in a host of younger, fresher designers. Look a bit further, and you’ll find a wealth of wares on offer in the independent stores, where young designers are championed alongside established labels.

John Simons

London is a capital of contemporary fashion, and while it offers a vibrant mix of modern designers, there are plenty of traditional establishments offering quirky, quintessential garments. Savile Row is always a good place to start, still bursting with traditional tailors. Away from ‘the Row’, there are a number of long-established menswear stores and John Simons tops the list. Stocking US and British clothing, this is the Ivy League brought to life, where the store’s namesake has satisfied his loyal fanbase since the 1960s.
