#2451 Next stop, London!

It’s all happening! After two days of the coldest weather and heaviest snowfalls I’ve ever experienced in my 29 years, the time has come to depart this freezing island and fly out to London for the first leg of the men’s shows. I mentioned a month or so ago that I was going to be writing for a particularly exciting outlet, and I can now tell you that my coverage from London Collections: Men, Pitti Uomo, Milan, and Paris will appear on The Business of Fashion. Watch that space! And don’t forget to check in regularly on the blog as I run amok all over the show — my personal coverage is going to be a bit different this season; the main thing I want to do is a series of Q&As with the familiar faces of the men’s scene, alongside other stuff that catches my eye along the way. So there we have it. It’s 8:15am, negative 13 degrees Celsius, and my flight is boarding. Peace out, New York, see you soon, London, and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram!

    What a great pic! Enjoy London! Seeing as you always give us the best advice on things to do in New York, I want to share something about over here….we have a reptuation for bad food, but it’s not true; be sure to check out the great cafes and restaurants around Covent Garden and Soho. Let me know if you want any recommedations. Enjoy.

    Travel safely, Isaac. Love to see lots of photos of everything. In 1970 I went to a great fish and chip shop in Kensington. I recommend the halibut.

    En regard to the enquirer about Istanbul, we thought you might like to mention the Whirling Dervishes. It is a must, n’est pas.

    1) Bone Daddies – Noodles & Rock music (good portions)
    2) New China (China Town) – Get the dimsum menu, down to earth food and very cheap. sort of our version of Hop Kee
    3) If you’re in the mood for Indian, of course, Brick Lane should be visited, but Dishoom in convent garden is well worth a visit and a nicer than the food in BL.
    4) Caravan Cafe at Central St. Martins, good place to visit for brunch.
    5) Koya for some lovely – and memorable – Japanese noodles
    6) Camisa & Son, for the ultimate sandwich. Just go there and buy everything (61 Old Compton Street.)

    And, if, like me, you have a major sweet tooth, head to Harrods’ food court on your last day, get 4 carrot cake cupcakes and eat them all in one go.

    Have fun!
