J Crew opens its first mens-only store in London

Nick Garrett recently gilded the numeral at J Crew’s new London store setting sail a special brand of men’s retail.

By Nick Carvell 10 October 13

Updated 10/10/13: We would’t be lying to say that theGQ team has been counting down the days until J Crew‘s arrival in London ever since the label’s first European store was announced back in 2011. So you can imagine our excitement that today the American high street heavyweight opens its first men’s only store outside of the US on Lamb’s Conduit Street, nearly a full month before its gigantic Regent Street flagship opens on 8 November. Housed in a building dating back to the Nineteenth Century, the appropriately monikored “38 Lamb’s Conduit” will sell shirting, an assortment of the label’s excellent Ludlow suiting and a whole host of exclusive items from J Crew-approved brands like Thomas Mason, Corgi, Begg & Co. and British umbrella makers London Undercover. The shop will also offer monogramming, custom stitching and buttons and a free delivery service. In short: the brand’s English answer its one-off New York Liquor Store. We’ll see you in the queue.

Project enquiry had lead time of 2 weeks which was enough to set up and clear designs with the Hackney Borough Listed Buildings permission for change process.



The logo we received was for the Copperplate layout which would need re-setting for the fascias of this beautiful shop.

Client requested a 3 dimensional chiseled treatment.

The above font was the first and final version submitted – which was a rarity and fair joy.

The Copperplate font was refined and beautified along the lines of the original Kensington and Chelsea characters.



The font required various changes to bring it in line with the original vintage Victorian Copperplate the we always use.

INSPIRATION – Chelsea and Kensingon

TG inspiration

These gems above were sitting in the local pub just round the corner from our big Oaklands Court project which finished two days before T&G start-up.

Coincidences like this often happen when you are fully submerged in the process.

With the layout approved and Oaklands Court finished we set off to Angel.
