The tailors of Savile Row- what is this? is this a suit company or something?
Turnbull & Asser- this is a proper shirt store?
Russell & Bromley- love their look back at the past section, i want those early shoes, so elegant and glamorous!
Laura Ashley- goes without saying
Smythson of Bond St- im liking, in the summer i want to buy a bag (of course) and a journal and that secretarie! think i will buy their stationary too, only theirs to be like my signature..just dont like the pigskin.

Savile Row is an area near Bond St in London and there is a cluster of tailors (suit shops) who make bespoke suits. They are famous for their workmanship. Prince Charles goes there for his suits! You get the idea...
