Joe Woolfe has sartorial form: for more than a decade working at Spencer Hart (and then as a stylist for cloth manufacturer Scabal) he’s been turning out celebrities in natty evening ensembles, with a clientele that includes Harry Connick Jr, Benedict Cumberbatch and Robbie Williams. Now he and Johan Labassa have their own concept store in London’s Fitzrovia, called Labassa Woolfe. Here, he offers suiting (£1,750, some made from Scabal weaves) and other formalwear. Suits range from business rigs in cashmere wool (£1,750) to red-carpet affairs in silk-herringbone (£2,200). They are displayed amid an opulent assemblage of antique furniture, ornaments and artworks – and everything is for sale, including vintage cufflinks and tie pins. Woolfe’s aesthetic may have a certain showbiz pizzazz, but the store’s plush aesthetic and vintage finds are deftly contained.
