Cue The Shopkeeper Store, an English gentleman’s prized stash of dashing wearable items, available now in Internet form.
Last fall, a Brit with spectacular taste gathered some of his favorite things (spoiler: he loves French work jackets and folding knives) into a single London store.

They’ll even set you up with some smashing Swedish rain jackets for springtime.
We heard it rains that time of year.
