Jermyn Street is a one-way street in the St James's area of the City of Westminster in London, to the south of, parallel, and adjacent to Piccadilly.
 It is widely known as a place where the shops are almost exclusively aimed at the gentlemen's clothing market and it is famous for its resident shirtmakers such as Turnbull & Asser, Thomas Pink, Harvie & Hudson and T. M. Lewin. Gentlemen's outfitters Hackett and DAKS are also located on Jermyn Street, as well as shoe- and boot-makers John Lobb and Foster & Son.
 A number of other businesses occupy premises on the street, such as the men's luxury goods brand Alfred Dunhill, who first took a premises on the corner of Jermyn Street and Duke street in 1907; barbers Geo.F. Trumper, and Taylor of Old Bond Street; cigar shop Davidoff; as well as Britain's oldest cheese shop, Paxton & Whitfield, trading since 1797.
Jermyn Street é uma das ruas mais agradáveis de Londres . Paralela e adjacente a Picadilly, pela qual é ligada através das Picadilly Arcades, inesquecível "passage-galerie", só comparável às Burlington Arcades também muito próximas.
Esta é a rua para as camisarias, e a sua fama para a "Bespoke shirts" também só é comparável àquilo que Savile Row é para a "Bespoke Tayloring".
No entanto devido à variedade e à acessibilidade dos seus estabelecimentos e montras, esta é uma rua menos obcecada temáticamente e muito menos monótona que Savile Row.
Visitem vários estabelecimentos através dos exemplos que vos ofereço neste "post"

With a thriving small business in Portobello, Jeremy Hackett and Ashley Lloyd-Jennings make a big step up and open their first shop under the name “Hackett” at the wrong end (as their bank manager observed) of the New Kings Road in Parson’s Green, London. Still selling fine quality second-hand traditional British clothing and accessories, discovered in house clearances and numerous antique markets, Hackett soon gains cult status aided by interest in “Young Fogeydom” and the “Sloane Ranger handbook”.

 T. M. Lewin 
T. M. Lewin (Thomas Mayes Lewin) is a gentleman's shirt retailer and was formerly a UK manufacturer. It was founded in 1898 when Thomas Mayes Lewin opened his first shop in Jermyn Street, St James's, London.
T. M. Lewin & Sons traded through both World Wars and it was during this period that the company became a provider of Club Colours, becoming a supplier to the RAF, the British Army, the School tie and the sporting community. In 1979 T. M. Lewin & Sons was acquired by the McKenna family and in 1980 Geoff Quinn, the current managing director, joined the company from Turnbull & Asser.

Hello, I have recently discovered your delightful blog with so many interesting posts. I love this one in particular as Jermyn Street is one of my all-times favorite streets to visit whenever I find myself in London. My husband and I always make sure to visit the shirtmakers and Paxton's for their sublime stilton.

I shall be adding your blog to my blog roll so as not to miss another wonderful post, thank you.
