The Brits live and breathe it, and wear it too, actually. Wit at Liberty sees bicycles covered in Liberty lawn print, its windows always awash with a hyper-creative vision. While across in Savile Row, it could be the silk lining of a jacket or that extra button at the cuff, all tiny nods to individuality and hints at the wit at the heart of the most seriously suited. In the middle of the Row you have Hardy Amies whose very first show in 1945 was in The Savoy and is now experiencing an injection of cool with the designs of Oliver J Benjamin.
