GQ Editor Dylan Jones has been showing men in Britain how to put their most stylish foot forward since he took over the helm of the magazine in 1999. He’s the perfect person to give us an aficionado’s guide to this vibrant city.
Best Place To Get A Suit Made

Go to Gieves & Hawkes or Richard James for the cut and finish. You need to choose a dark colour that’s quite classic otherwise it will date.

Best Place To Have A Whisky

Scarfes Bar in the Rosewood Hotel or the bar at the Connaught [designed by David Collins]. Everyone is now going crazy for a single malt and you’ll find that these bars always have small batches ready.

Best Place To Get A Coffee

There is this Argentina restaurant in W2 called Casa Malevo that does great coffee. But to be truthful, I also like the coffee in Pret [A Manger].

Best Place To Buy Art

Like fashion and food, art is no longer so elitist. The entry level has dropped. Three quarters of Columbia Road is filled with great stores. There is also the new Damien Hirst gallery on Newport Street. The first exhibition is John Hoyland. It used to be where they stored scenery for the theatre so you have this vast space with high ceilings. It’s a great place to see art.

Best Place To Buy Vinyl Records

Rough Trade in Portobello. You can get new vinyl versions of old classics.
