Spotlight On: Alex Outlaw

November 3, 2016


We love our Shoreditch neighbourhood so each month we’re turning the spotlight over to them; whether it be a Merchants regular or a local supplier, artist, musician, or entrepreneur.

In the Spotlight this month is Shoreditch local Alex Outlaw, CMO and Co-Founder at, a new menswear retailer based just off Brick Lane. Alex has lived in Shoreditch for around 6 years and for him the best the the buzz with a new store, restaurant or cool bar opening every week. Here’s Alex’s Shoreditch tips:

Tipple of choice

Head down to Brew Dog on Bethnal Green Road for a pint of Punk Ipa.

Brunch or Lunch

It has to be brunch as I’m not a big eater first thing in the morning and it’s a great excuse to start the party early.

Insiders tip

If you are looking for some flowers head down to Columbia Road around 2:30 and grab yourself a bargain, they sell a lot of the stuff off cheap at the end of the day.

Big night out

Hackney Wick is a great place at the moment with loads of cool stuff from Crate Brewery, Grow and Number 90 to name a few…

Shoreditch soundtrack

I went to see the Oasis documentary the other day at the Richmix, so their greatest hits is on constant replay right now.
