Sometimes it can be difficult for men to uncover the best shopping destinations as our habits can often be entrenched with familiar patterns for spending our cash. We head to the same stores because we know exactly what they are going to offer us.

 

But what if I told you there was a better world out there! Shops that have a curated selection of menswear brands that you are loyal to whilst bringing you similar brands you might not be aware of.

 

Here at A Gentleman’s Row we bring you our list of some of our favourite menswear shops from across London.

hostem

Hostem

28 Old Nichol Street E2 7HR

This award winning Shoreditch hotspot was the concept of founder James Brown to offer luxury menswear brands from across the globe. It offers a distinctive take on the men’s classic wardrobe pieces, so we would encourage those looking to push the boundaries a little to take the time to visit. Suits from Casely-Hayford, and shoes from cobbler Sebastian Tarek give you an idea of the current offering.

Other/shop

Fouberts Place, London, W1B 5QA

Founded in 2012, the menswear store just of Carnaby St offers contemporary design and men’s fashion. Expect a creative twist on the norm with the founders formerly running b-store before creating this new conceptual store to support emerging talent alongside their own designs.

present london

Present

140 Shoreditch High St, E1 6JE

The owners of this store were the founders of the long forgotten Duffer of St George. They do stock some of their own designs of knitwear and t-shirts but we advise men to focus on the classic brands like London Undercover, Aquascutum, and Hancock.

bluebird shop

The Shop At Bluebird

350 King’s Road, SW3 5UU

This is a great destination for men looking to stock their wardrobes with key pieces from Oliver Spencer, AMI, Jigsaw and E Tautz to name but a few. Elbow the cast from popular reality tv shows out of the way to ensure you get your hands on the some serious menswear clobber.

Just a note to say Start London would have definitely featured in this list but sadly has now closed the doors of its Shoreditch home.
