Albam
Old Spitalfields Market 111A Commercial Street Shadwell E1 6BG
Region: Shadwell
Nearest Station: Shoreditch (0.2 miles)

AIL Says: Albam is an independent menswear brand built on quality and considered design. Somehow every one of its London stores has its own individuality while at the same time featuring the same product range. Think Egyptian cotton t-shirts that last, waxed canvas jackets and functional style.

Pokit
132 Wardour Street Soho W1F 8ZW
Region: Soho
Nearest Station: Tottenham Court Road (0.2 miles)

AIL Says: If you’re driven by an insatiable desire to dress differently then Pokit is the place to find your next suit. Boasting Saville Row service with a contemporary edge, the Soho tailors will have you suited and booted in anything you desire from Prince of Wales check to Harris Tweed.

  • CLOTHES - MEN
Dover Street Market
17-18 Dover Street Mayfair W1S 4LS
Region: Mayfair
Nearest Station: Green Park (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: This isn’t your average market, but then the location on a Mayfair back street kind of hints at that. Dover Street Market is Rei Kawakubo of Commes Des Garcon’s brainchild. A place where super desirable brands come together to make men cry at the beauty of the clothes – and then cry some more at the price tags. Even if you don’t have the money it is worth visiting to bask in the fashion.

The Hideout
7 Upper James Street Soho W1F 9DH
Region: Soho
Nearest Station: Piccadilly Circus (0.2 miles)

In short, whatever you’re after in the realm of menswear you’ll find a highly desirable version of it in the mock Tudor palace of Liberty.
