James Drew, at 3 Burlington Arcade, W1, was first established in 1838 so has quite a few years experience to draw on. Recently they have re-vamped their collection and now sell lots of incredibly luscious shirts by Turnbull & Asser of Jermyn St. They make them up in simple crepe silk, add fantastic embroideries. Pictured: velvet cape with multi-coloured fringing, embroidered with gold butterflies, £90; matching turban, £17.50; black crepe silk shirt with feather emblem embroidered in purple, shocking pink, fuchsia and magenta, £57.75; all from James Drew.
