T.M. Lewin – Heritage is the word

The first T.M. Lewin store opened in Jermyn street in 1898. Yes, that’s like 118 years ago when T.M. Lewin opened it doors to the public. I couldn’t believe it when I found out through Louis the origins and history of this noble brand.

That time of the year when nature itself comes out to play, petals start to blossom  and the birds are chirping. It’s the perfect time to dust off those light coloured blazers and polish those penny loafers. Anyway before I get carried away, I better get back to talking about weddings or more precisely a wedding I witnessed a week ago.
