Good old England, a cup of tea and God save the Queen. London was the center of commerce and culture when her grip on the colonies was still strong. This thriving economy birthed the modern gentleman, with a commitment to pomp and style, the manner of knights chivalrous and a London tailored suit. It is no surprise that now, in the year of 2017, if you want to be a proper gentleman there is no better place to outfit yourself.
