Sad news for SAB, good news for the area I'm guessing... Partick Hellman is no A&F

My god they have the worst website I have ever seen. Its a fucking maze just to see some of their products! I hate companies that think they are so exclusive that telling people what they do is verboten.

Basically.

 

I have seen a few of his suits for sale here apparently made by Attolini and Kiton so the quality is there. The brands image just isn't to everyone's taste on here.

I like the umbrellas but found the shop dull and charmless, especially compared with Smith. Ironic that the Smith shop is so little changed from the 1800s and yet Brigg's generic high-end approach felt much more museum-like.

PH fares very well in countries from the former USSR. Catering for nouveau riche here and there.

Would be interesting to see for how long they'll survive in London.

I see Patrick Hellmann like Astor & Black but done properly. They love having celebrities pictured while wearing their clothes!

Maybe SAB prices will drop a bit from their awesome RRP then...doubt it though!

It's increasingly rare to find a real Londoner anymore. Sort of like a real New Yorker. London is stuffed to the gills with said former USSR nouveau riche types year round and chavy middle east brats in the summer.

I don't know much about PH but if who you mentioned is their target demographic, they should do quite well in London. Sort of like setting up shop in Miami to target dodgy Latin American types, or in Paris for African warlords and despots.
