The new store, at 106 Jermyn Street, will open in summer 2016 and will continue to be Aquascutum’s only store dedicated solely to its menswear collection.

This follows Aquascutum’s successful re-launch of its menswear brand on Jermyn Street three years ago through a lease with The Crown Estate at 78-79 Jermyn Street.

Anthea Harries, St James’s Portfolio Manager said: “Aquascutum’s re-launch of its menswear brand in St James’s three years ago, and now its expansion into a larger, flagship store, clearly demonstrates Jermyn Street’s appeal as one of the world’s premier destinations for men’s fashion.”

Mark Taylor, Chief Operating Office at Aquascutum said: “Jermyn Street’s position as one of the world’s leading menswear destinations, as well as the area’s heritage and reputation for high quality fashion made it the perfect location for our flagship menswear store. Working with The Crown Estate on Jermyn Street has been incredibly valuable experience for us, and reaffirmed our belief that this is the only place in London for brands like us with a premium menswear offer.”
