London's Little Menswear Street

London's Little Menswear Street
Tucked away in the Bloomsbury area of London, you'll find Lambs Conduit Street. It has a quirky mix of independent coffee shops, homeware stores, galleries and most importantly Menswear Stores. The beauty of this street is that lack of chains, it firmly supports independent shops. Even the mighty Starbucks was forced to close down their store, after locals boycotted and only went to the smaller coffeeshops.

On the street you'll find great British Menswear Brands such as Grenson, Folk, Universal Works and Oliver Spencer.

Even though the name Lambs Conduit would lead you to believe it was a thoroughfare for sheep in the past. The unusual name comes from a wealthy Tudor man called William Lambe, who built a conduit (pipe) to supply fresh water to the City of London, which had been rebuilt after the Great Fire of London in 1666.

Have a walk around Lambs Conduit Street and surrounding area, there are also some great pubs to reward yourself afterwards.
