'If you fancy a more avant-garde approach to the morning suit, head to Hostem where modern-minded gents will find labels such as Yang Li, Loewe and Comme des Garcons providing off-the-peg tailoring for special occasions. True sartorialists should call in on the bespoke basement, a gloomily-lit menswear cave selling one-of-a-kind products made to your exact specification by some of the best artisans (pictured). The shopping perfectionist can enjoy a superlative suiting service by the forward-thinking Casely-Hayfords (popular with Michael Fassbender and Robert Downey Jr). Or they could commission a suite of custom luggage by Globe-Trotter, which offers a selection of leathers, metal and engraving. Perhaps most captivating are the exquisite, made-from-scratch shoes fashioned by cobbler Sebastian Tarek (from £1,000). He traces his clients’ feet in a handsome cobbler’s notebook (pressed in Stoke Newington), then chisels a last for each foot. To fashion his shoes, Tarek uses Irish thread and leather produced by the only oak-bark tanner left in Britain.'
