Ben Sherman and Pretty Green made an appearance obviously, but two main things impressed me about the street, considering I haven’t visited properly for quite a while;
2. El Ganso
For suede shoes, it’s the place to go, with a whole wall dedicated to a vast collection of styles and colour combos. Prices were about £75 and there are plenty more subtle lace colours for the more conservative among the mod scene.
They also had a dazzling set of tartan and other classic 1960s style shirts (button-down of course).
Anyway, when I go back to Carnaby Street in a couple of weeks, these are the places I definitely want to examine in more detail and I suspect I won’t be disappointed.
