Savile Style

Milk or lemon? Shaken or stirred? British gentlemen have a reputation for knowing exactly what they want and refusing to accept second best. As the legacy of London's Savile Row and Jermyn Street proves, classic design and good craftsmanship never go out of style. Many of the biggest names in English menswear have been around for centuries, kitting out their clients with a wardrobe designed to withstand the trends of the time. But you don't have to own a polo pony or country estate to enjoy the immortal Mayfair look. The secret the Brits have long-since learned? Putting on a precision-tailored jacket, crisp cotton shirt and pair of carmel colored brogues is the easiest decision a gentleman will ever have to make.

1) Gieves & Hawkes buckshot brogues, $397;
2) Thomas Pink lightweight tweed jacket, $700;
3) Aspinal pinstripe umbrella, $250;
4) Smythson notebook, $65 and pencil, $15
