The Sartorial Travel Guide
Simon's guide to the best independent menswear stores in the world: shops worth travelling for.
This book, published with Thames & Hudson, covers hundreds of stores, focusing on 10 big cities but then also picking up single stores in 15 other, smaller locations.
Based on Simon's travels around the world, the major cities covered are: London, Paris, Florence, Naples, New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Milan, Stockholm and Melbourne.
The book also includes contributions from other experienced travellers. Anda Rowland of Anderson & Sheppard talks about the role of small shops; Wei Koh of The Rake picks out his favourites; Mark Cho from The Armoury gives his advice on travelling; and Mats Klingberg at Trunk talks about how he shops when abroad.
Simon then adds two features of his own, one explaining what he packs and one how he packs.
The version offered here is only available to readers and through a select number of the stores. It is different to that more broadly available, coming in its own cloth-bound slip case, and being signed and numbered by Simon. Only 300 have been printed.
