Popped down today.

First lesson learnt - don't go on a Saturday. Fuck me it was busy!

As for what was there

Bill Amberg - most stuff half price
Bally - pretty sparse (though they did have a lovely leather jacket)
Pringle - bit meh, though did have some nice selvege jeans for £30. None in my size mind
Aquascutum, Tods, RL, the sunglasses place, Farhi, Ferragamo all pretty meh, though I did finally get a nice pair of shorts for a good price from RL

Hackett was quite good - Got a nice polo, and they had loads of nice linen blazer/jackets for a bargain £30

Dunhill was really good. Loads of really nice slim fit chinos for £20 in 28 - 31". Typically none in 32". Really nice denim for £60. Bunch of other good stuff.

Paul Smith was reasonable on the suits and shoes side

Where you wearing an Ape Shall Never Kill Ape tee? I saw somebody there who looked like they could be a Fuker.

Parking was a ball ache.

ha no. I was wearing a RL chambry shirt, Ecru Aquascutm safari jacket, APCs and sebagos.

Parking appeared to be a pain for most, but i figured the bottom of the storied carpark would have the most people leaving. It did and I got parked in about 5 minutes

They have parking attendants in there. You can occasionally park at the Acorn.

Hi, I have just found this forum so am a new member. I visited Bicester a few months ago and received the 10% off voucher the day after I got back. I am planning to go again next week and was wondering if there is anywhere to get hold of one of these vouchers again. Any help appreciated. Once I have been I will post what decent offers that were on. Cheers

Cheers. Yeah I will post up any info when I get back. I might give them a ring and ask them before I go about the discount code.

Went this morning:

Couple of new Fred Perry x CDG polos in there which were really nice. I'll post up a picture of the one I got if anybody's interested.

Vans had some Half Cabs for around £40 (buy one get the second half price, as well).

The sunglasses shop there had these for £60 http://www.shadestation.co.uk/Oakley-Sunglasses-Frogskin/cPath/-1_1_739/products_id/8124/osCsid/39d27125f18045d60d31c57a2a334f13/product_info.php

That's about it.

very - you can get polo shirts cheaper off us ebay though. stuff is cheaper than oxfam in the sales. stock can be random though but there's plenty of it turning over.

us ebay is best for that gear (shorts/trous)- he's asking about price anyway.

there's plenty of stock in all sizes, ddd - if you can't see anything, ask the staff as they're very helpful in there (nice young men from Oxford). there's a lot of sample stock in there too if that floats your boat.

Hello World loads of RL chinos cords £9.99, shirts 19.99 and blazers £35 in Feb of this year. Trick is to get summer stuff in the winter and winter stuff in summer to get the best prices.

Read Cristiano Ronaldo, 24, spotted shopping at Flannels and Molton Brown at Lowry Outlet Mall in Salford, shows everyone loves a bargain.

Went last weekend.

Dior grey jeans, loads of pairs in size 27W and 36W, looked quite nice (button fastening, rather than the clip on normal jeans), also had loads of dark denim in pretty much fsr -very baggy though.

Fred Perry x CDG jumpers for £60ish, long sleeve polo's for £40ish
