Established in 1805 by William Francis Truefitt, Truefitt & Hill carry the merit of being the oldest barbershop in the world, a fact verified by the Guinness Book of World Records. The brand are also the royal barbers and have the proud honour of having a Royal Warrant, granted by His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip himself. Based on St James’ Street in the heart of London, one would struggle to find a more quintessentially British brand.
However, being located in the centre of the city of London may not be as glamorous as it seems. Pollution not only harms the environment, but it also harms our skin, not to mention the amount of dust present in the air when one boards the tube, vital for travelling from one part of London to another.
