Fortnum & Mason is an upmarket department store in Piccadilly, London, with additional stores at St Pancras railway station and Heathrow Airport in London, as well as Dubai and various stockists worldwide. Its headquarters is located at 181 Piccadilly, where it was established in 1707 by William Fortnum and Hugh Mason. Today it is privately owned by Wittington Investments Ltd.Founded as a grocery store, Fortnum's reputation was built on supplying quality food, and saw rapid growth throughout the Victorian era. Though Fortnum's developed into a department store, it continues to focus on stocking a variety of exotic, speciality and also 'basic' provisions.The store has since opened several other departments, such as the Gentlemen's department on the third floor. It is also the location of a celebrated tea shop and several restaurants.HistoryWilliam Fortnum was a footman in the royal household of Queen Anne. The Royal Family’s insistence on having new candles every night meant a lot of half-used wax which William Fortnum promptly resold for a tidy profit. The enterprising William Fortnum also had a sideline business as a grocer. He convinced his landlord, Hugh Mason, to be his associate, and they founded the first Fortnum & Mason store in Mason's small shop in St James's Market in 1707. In 1761, William Fortnum's grandson Charles went into the service of Queen Charlotte and the Royal Court affiliation led to an increase in business. Fortnum & Mason claims to have invented the Scotch egg in 1738. The store began to stock speciality items, namely ready-to-eat luxury meals such as fresh poultry or game served in aspic jelly.

This flagship store is set over seven floors, with more than 50,000 toys on sale. It is considered one of the city's prominent tourist attractions, receiving around five million visitors each year. The chain has ten other outlets in the United Kingdom and nearly 50 franchises worldwide.Hamleys was bought by the Icelandic investment company Baugur Group in 2003 but was taken over by Baugur's main investor, Landsbanki, when the group defaulted. In 2012, the French toy retailer Groupe Ludendo bought the business for £60 million. In 2015 it was reported that Groupe Ludendo was negotiating the sale of Hamleys, possibly to a Hong Kong company owned by a relative of the owner of department store House of Fraser. Subsequently, it was sold to the Chinese footwear company C.banner for an estimated $154 million.HistoryHamleys is the oldest and largest toy shop in the world. It is named after William Hamley, who founded a toy shop called "Noah's Ark" at No. 231 High Holborn, London, in 1760. Ownership of the shop passed through the family, and by the time it was operated by Hamley's grandsons in 1837, the store had become famous, counting royalty and nobility among its customers.

The Sebastian Snow Made-to-Measure concept cannot simply be compared to any other made-to-measure work. The client’s wishes are our command. The client selects a cloth from more than 10,000 references. He himself determines the style, the type of buttons and his options.
He can for instance add an inside pocket for his mobile phone and a large inside pocket for any flight or train ticket. He also selects the lining of his choice. The initials embroidered on the inside jacket and the contrasting undercollar in a colour of his choice ensure that the suit is completely unique.
The result: a completely unique suit or coat which fits like a glove in every sense of the word. What’s more, the client does not have to wait all that long for his suit. The made-to-measure garments of Sebastian Snow only takes 6 weeks to complete.

Marco Hidalgo discovered a natural passion for tailoring early on in life while working with his uncle and cousins in Ecuador. Then at the age of 24, with his new found knowledge and expertise he came to London to make his mark.
Having started out at Norton and Sons in Savile Row, Marco mastered his trade and gained valuable experience from their master tailors. Then by the end of the 1980’s he had become self employed for Austin Reed and Burberry.
Ten years later Marco joined forces with his brother Ramon Hidalgo. Together they then started to work with Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Armani, Zegna, Aquascutum, Max Mara, Hackett, Joseph, Rochester Big & Tall, Dunhill, Rosetti and Jitrois along with many others.
Over the years the Hidalgo Brothers have developed an exceptional reputation for delivering quality and efficient service. Their suits, both bespoke and made to measure, are competitively priced and include any combination of lining and buttons (with the exception of the Holland and Sherry Gold collection).
In 2007 they launched Hidalgo Brothers in Savile Row.
