The Dover Street Market

The hyper-trendy, six-floor fashion emporium created by Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons looks as cool as the high-fashion threads peddled inside. Dedicated shops include Nike’s Free Hyperfeel, Undercover, Jil Sander, Purified, and of course, Comme de Garcons.

Thom Sweeney Custom Suits

Constructing all garments from scratch with the finest fabrics, Sweeney offers natty handmade jackets, trousers, ties and the label’s trademark U-shaped waistcoats. The mostly-bespoke shop also stocks a ready-to-wear tuxedo made from midnight blue mohair-bland wool and trimmed with matching silk lapels, jets and buttons, perfect for that last-minute black-tie invite.


This impeccably-curated Hoxton boutique is brimming with high-level street fashion, including a denim-heavy men’s department

Trunk Clothiers

This cozy shop in Marylebone is full of smart suits, shirts and outerwear. Customers range from well-heeled young bankers to J. Crew CEO, Mickey Drexler.


This appointment-only experience is hidden down an alleyway in Dalston. If you can find it, follow an orange-lit tunnel to an evolving cluster of instal- lations curated by top designers. Sidle up to the mezcal bar that features a sound system sourced from the Sex Pistols’ old studio before browsing the library, vinyl record shop, and art gallery.
