Stop in at Start.

Posted on February 20, 2010


For many of us, eager to escape the high street, but unable to afford the exclusivity of Saville Row, Mr. Start in the heart of Shoreditch provides a wonderful alternative. Offering high-end off the peg suiting, or Start’s own made-to-measure service, the store delivers a boutique suiting experience, set over two floors, in a stylish, contemporary retail environment.

The styling is decidedly retro, with slim fitting suiting, their own thin bladed ties, and shoes from Crockett & Jones. Here also there is attention to detailing and fabrics that would not feel out of place on the Golden Mile. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, without being pushy – quite refreshing after the hard sell of so many other stores.

Prices start at a very reasonable £550, not much more than you might  expect to pay on the high street, and certainly more than you will part with on the Row.

Their spring/summer collection features new shirting, lightweight suits and colour palate to suit the season.

I highly recommend a visit.
