Buying a smart/casual wardrobe in Jermyn Street

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm going to Jermyn Street tommorow to buy a pair of Crockett & Jones shoes. Whilst there I'd like to get a smart/casual wardrobe for wearing to work. Most people at work wear a shirt with a sweater and chinos or light coloured trousers.

I'm looking for a shop to buy the clothes from that is similar to Crockett & Jones in the sense that they have good quality clothes that will look good and last but won't break the bank. I've read on here that TM Lewin might be a good choice?

I'm not too sure about getting a fitted shirt as I'm on a diet and losing quite a bit of weight, I don't want to be re-buying shirts in 6 months time.

You will find that most of the "shirt shops" sell some or all of the things you are considering. Hawes, R Charles, Tyrwhitt, Lewin, H&H, H&K, N&L etc. (Very roughly listed here in ascending order of both price and quality.)

You will not lack for choice, especially if you also pop into Cordings (Piccadilly).

You might also want to check out some of the more mass market shops on Regent St, like Austin Reed. You'll find some things at or around the Lewin price/quality ratio there.

If you can wait 5 weeks for the sales, you will get better prices, though often on a limited selection.

Thanks for the advice. Are shoes from C&J typically discounted during the January sales as well?

Yes and no - they'll be selling seconds mostly.

As for shopping on Jermyn Street - if it's quality to price ratio that you want it isn't exactly the best place in the world for everyday items. However, having said that if you stick to shops like Harvie & Hudson or TM Lewin (I prefer H&H) you can't particularly go wrong.

Yes, though almost never the exact ones you really wanted to buy, especially not in your size.
