London Christmas Shopping Guide 2015 No.6. Hornets Kensington #xmasinlondon #londonxmas

Welcome to our London Christmas Shopping Guide 2015. 


Over the next few weeks we'll be pointing you in the direction of our favourite shops and shopping neighbourhoods near the meeting and ending points of our London Walks …








No.6. Hornets of Kensington




Hornets is London’s classic vintage clothing shop for men.


Their slogan says it all: “Not fashion. Style.” Hornets specializes in British classics, tweeds and bespoke suits from Savile Row, but always have a fair smattering of designer pieces and wild and wonderful odds and ends.

We asked the proprietor, Bill Hornets, to describe his business to us:

"To put it bluntly, we sell secondhand clothes. Backed up by new hats, garments and accessories and new ranges we buy in at a good price. If it was made yesterday we’ll buy it and sell it, if it has style. This has always been my watchword. Style."








Hornets is at 2 & 4 Kensington Church Walk, Kensington W8.


You can call in on Hornets later today on and after the Old Kensington Walk with David, meet at High Street Kensington station at 2:00p.m.
