Exploring London in a Bespoke Suit
London is a fabulous place and it is not an everyday occurrence when we are given to the opportunity to swan around one of the most fashionable and extravagant cities on the planet.
To properly appreciate the spirit of London's luxury though, it requires the extravagance of a custom designed bespoke suite and luckily there are plenty of tailors in London providing different styles and designs from modern to classic.
Lets journey off to London to start our mancation adventure ...
The Bespoke Suit: Let's Visit Savile Row
The first thing you'll need is a great bespoke suit - this isn't something that you just grab off the rack or have tailored to fit right, London is known for the Savile Row tailors like Huntsman that dates back to 1849 and has been making gentlemen like Big Crosby look dapper ever since.
To start our experience, you should expect somewhere north of £3,000
The Travel: What About a Rolls?
Besides of course some of the best first class coaches that British Rail and afford; getting around London itself can be a little bit of a dog. If you really want to live it up, there are various chauffeur services in and around the city including, Phantom Hire; a Rolls Royce chauffeur driven service that affords three to four cars per person at a nippy
price of £395 a day.
The Meal: Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester
With reservations booked two months in advance at Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, you should be prepared to consume of the finest meals served in the entirety of London.

Located in the heart of the West End, the hotel offers club weekend deals (with 3pm check outs; perfect for a prolonged booze-up).
