Celebrating 5 years in fashion, Orlebar Brown held a little party at their Sackville St. store, complete with Long Island ice teas and Adam Brown’s latest collection. No longer just a swimwear brand, Orlebar Brown now produces a complete collection which aims to insert itself into the wardrobe of any gentleman abroad. In a vast array of colours, the flagship store is lined with polos, tailored chinos, fitted T’s and relaxed cotton jackets. Just like their famous swim trunks, the clothes are striking in their quality. It’s resort wear in it’s most purest form. Read on for our 3 questions with Orlebar Brown founder and designer, Adam Brown, as we talk Father’s Day and where to find the best coffee in London.

Congratulations on 5 years. Orlebar Brown started life as a brand that arguably does the best swim trunks in the world. Obviously, you’re a man of the water. Tell me, where’s your favourite beach in the world?
Boobys Bay on North Cornwall. You have to check it out.
Are you a father?
No, but I have 2 dogs.
Father’s Day is this Sunday. What have you bought for your father?
I didn’t. My father’s in Japan at the moment, he lives there. I would buy him a pair of Bulldog shorts if he were around.
I’m new here in London and I’m on the lookout for some great coffee spots. What’s your favourite cafe in London?
Oh god. Melrose and Morgan on Primrose Hill. It’s very good.
