After a nonstop shopping tour of London’s many women’s clothing boutiques, it’s time for a dapper detour for the mister. Start at the birthplace of British men’s fashion at Jermyn Street’s iconic Turnbull & Asser shirt shop. Make a day date of it and stroll in with your sweetheart. If you’re trying to keep it simple, just grab a couple pocket squares or silk ties and then peruse the modest off-the-peg selection of shirts lining the wall. But if you’re really going for the experience, have one of the impeccably-dressed staff members guide you through the bespoke shirt creation process. Of course your date will have as many opinions as the tailor regarding the right color, print, and cut, so let everyone speak their piece, nod politely, then tell the tailor exactly what you want. It’s your shirt, after all.  While you’re waiting for the final tally, take a second to spot the James Bond paraphernalia lining the walls–Turnbull & Asser is 007’s trusted tailor after all. By the time you return to retrieve your new, made-to-measure shirts, you’ll be eager to slip it on and take your own Bond girl out on the town.
