Paul Smith’s No 9 Albemarle Street shop is my favourite, with its good atmosphere, sophisticated edit of clothes and occasional sighting of Sir Paul himself bounding about the place. This month he’s launched a new made-to-measure service, available at No 9 (and the Floral Street flagship), offering two- and three-piece suits (from £1,300), eveningwear and separates. Smith’s clipped Soho-style suit is offered in 30 of the house’s cloths from premium mills, including eight travel cloths. There are also eight lining options and three types of horn buttons to choose from, as well as the option of personalised labels. Orders arrive in a swift four-to-six weeks.
