Located on Wardour Street in the heart of Soho, Pokit are ‘contemporary outfitters of fine modern tailoring’. The description comes courtesy of Bayode Odowule who has run the store together with Claire Pringle since 1999. The store, an intimate rectangular showroom, is filled with stock templates, material samples and – embracing the surreal – a life-sized cowboy mounted on his steed! Immaculate leather goods such as shoes, wallets, belts and bags play a supporting role to the tailored suits that can be bought custom made. Tweed, white linen, navy cotton, corduroy – whatever your taste there’s a suit waiting to be made. Apart from the Japanese denim, 99% of Pokit’s goods are made in England, its products utilizing the skills of the country’s best craftspeople to match some exacting standards. In the words of Odowule, “Pokit is the good old-fashioned concept without the hokiness. High-class goods. It’s not pseudo heritage, it’s the real deal. Like the doors of the Ritz, we’re open to all who can afford it.” And with a tip of his ten gallon hat he’s back to his tailoring.Show lessRead more
