London is huge, sprawling, and chaotic, so before you set out on a shopping spree we recommend you arm yourself with this handy guide to make sure you never get lost and don't miss out on anything - from the oldest traditional establishments to the most avant-garde boutiques. And because we want you and your purchases to stay nice and dry, we've kindly included the address of a legendary umbrella maker! Highlights of this book include descriptions of: For "today's grooming needs," the classic barbershop & perfumer Geo F. Trumper; opened in 1882, James Purdey & Sons which exquisitely crafted guns & hunting clothes; leading English fashion designer Stella McCartney's shop; furniture shop owned by Paul Smith, who reupholsters vintage pieces with his own fabric; putting H&M to shame, the Topshop flagship store; all-natural, hand-crafted cheese and yoghurts from Neal's Yard Dairy; and, legendary umbrella makers James Smith & Sons, the perfect place to pick up a walking stick as a souvenir.
