This diminutive shop is a grand place to find underwear for boys come January. Aware sells a thorough range of men’s designers to the well-groomed, trendy crowd who patronize Old Compton Street. Boxers and briefs by Puma, Dolce & Gabbana, Hom, Calvin Klein and Versace are some of the super snazzy undies on offer. There’s a good selection of men’s swimwear too. An inspired venture of French ex-barrister Oliver Gazay, his shop boasts a loyal horde of aficionados.
