As we head towards winter (and hopefully as far away from COVID restrictions as possible), we can’t help but look forward to going to lots of delicious restaurants with friends, loved ones and family. The big question pre a nice brunch, lunch or dinner always is - what on earth do I wear?! Well, have no fear because that is where we are here to help! Not only are we giving fashion advice, but we’ve also listed some of our favourite London restaurants at which to wear said shirts… you’re welcome.
Ziani + Cotton Tuscan
Which other Dundas shirt could you wear to an Italian restaurant this Autumn, than a Cotton Tuscan? Whilst Ziani is actually a Venetian restaurant, it didn’t seem right not to match these two up! Our Tuscan shirts are inspired by our Italian heritage and Ziani is an atmospheric and buzzy restaurant located in the heart of Chelsea. For the seafood lovers out there, the Fettuccine alle Capesante is a Dundas personal favourite!
Edu + Cotton Navy
Edu London is all about contemporary Spanish food, serving things such as delicious Spanish tacos, loaded fries with chorizo and manchego and ‘Spanglish’ burgers. All that juicy, hands-on food calls for lots of napkins but also a dark shirt and for this feast of a meal out, we recommend the Cotton Navy.

The Fox & Pheasant + Cotton Blackwatch
It’s hard to find another pub in London that’s as ‘countrified’ as The Fox & Pheasant. Stepping inside this hidden-away gem in Chelsea genuinely feels as if you’ve walked into a village pub in Sussex. Not only does it serve great food but it also has our friends Coolhurst Vineyards’ English Sparkling Wine & Côtes de Provence Rosé on it’s menu! To get into that countryside spirit, we think the Cotton Blackwatch is the perfect shirt to wear here for a Sunday Roast.
Gunpowder + Cotton Grey
Now a household name in London, modern Indian restaurant group Gunpowder are opening another restaurant in Soho this October, and we are really excited! If you love your traditional Indian food, but would like it to have a classy twist, then this is the place you need to go. On the subject of clothing, we’ve been quite creative here, and think you should wear the Cotton Grey, a ‘gunpowder’ colour in it’s own right, to Gunpowder - get it? Good.
Hide + Cotton Green
There’s no place like Hide (there really isn't). This incredible three-venued and Michelin starred restaurant offers different dining experiences on it’s different floors. With 5 and 8 course tasting menu options and dishes such as caviar, lobster dumplings and Wagyu beef, it’s a place to eat for a special occasion. With it being smart but also earthy in it’s design and ethos, we feel there really is no better shirt to wear here than a Cotton Green - trust us, the restaurant and the shirt are worth it.
