Where romantic heroes go to buy clothes!
A stroll along Jermyn St today in the upmarket area of London known as St James's. This area is home to many gentleman's outfitters, Christies auction house and wine merchants, Berry Bros and Rudd. You can see Hackett in the background but there's also Turnbull & Asser, Charles Tyrwhitt and Lobb the bootmakers. This is probably where Radford Byrne, the barrister in Lovers In Law, would shop for clothes and handmade shoes.
I also found a black phone box which looked very stylish in such a well dressed street. Some years ago, British Telecom sold off some of their traditional red phone boxes to a new communications provider who painted them black.
