“Pepys Road: an ordinary street in the Capital. Each house has seen its fair share of first steps and last breaths, and plenty of laughter in between. Today, through each letterbox along this ordinary street drops a card with a simple message: We Want What You Have.”



After much deliberation, A-Gent of Style has decided to divulge one of his favourite haunts in Central London.
