The old saying still holds true. A stylish gentleman gets his suits in Savile Row and his shirts and shoes in Jermyn Street.
I really enjoy visiting Jermyn Street at this time of year. So many elegant and individual shops, all decked out for Christmas, it really does make it feel like Christmas is approaching. And there is nowhere better than Jermyn Street for buying Christmas gifts for your friends. Somehow the haste and crowds do not intrude here, you get to make your choices and purchases in a considered and enjoyable atmosphere. Shopping for the discerning man.
The Ultimate Jermyn Street Christmas Hamper
This year sees Jermyn Street presenting a chance to win the Ultimate Jermyn Street Christmas Hamper. Think of it as a representation of the best of Jermyn Street in a single hamper. It includes a pair of shoes from master shoemakers Foster and Sons, a hat from the ever-stylish Bates hatters, shirts from Hawes and Curtis, accessories from jeweller Nigel Milne and other superb examples of men’s style.
For the gourmands amongst us the hamper includes a bottle of 2002 vintage champagne from Fortnum and Mason, cheese from Paxton and Whitfield (who hold a Royal Warrant for their cheeses) and a Ritz Christmas pudding. There are many other gifts including an overnight stay for two at the luxurious Cavendish hotel, famed for its quiet glamour, charm and impeccable service. So if you win, you can enjoy Jermyn Street in high style.
Here is a picture of the hamper showing some of the gifts:
