A quick post on a couple of stores in Shoreditch.
First up, Club Monaco - a US brand that offers a level of style I can only dream to aspire to. Loafers, chinos, and slim-fit shirts, sit alongside more rugged sweaters and parkas. The store itself is like a miniature gentleman's club, with chairs and hatstands nestled between the well presented clothes, many a nod to it's heritage as a former gunsmiths, and even a small bourbon counter.
Second, Number Six. Perhaps not technically in Shoreditch, it's close enough and definitely decent enough to warrant the short walk along Brick Lane. Sat alongside the Truman Brewery, Number Six is in great company, with Son of a Stag almost next door and Albam only a stone's throw away.
While Club Monaco is a narrow and cosy store, Number Six is a wide-open, ceilinged room, where all of the colour and vibrancy of the clothes is immediately on show from the door. Just check those socks!
Last time I visited Number Six, I noticed some good-looking coats from Penfield and Patagonia, gloves from Barbour, and bags from Herschel.
Both stores are well worth a visit. Although, if you can't get there, both Number Six and Club Monaco can be browsed online - just don't expect that glass of bourbon.
