Popped into Bicester for the first time in ages yesterday.
Only got to Ralph Lauren because everywhere closed at 7pm which is a bit shit.
The whole outlet centre is fucking huge now though, almost double the size it was last time, RL is now where the old Tesco used to be. There's an acne outlet now.

RL was decent though, got a very nice RRL flannel for £40
Meant to pick up a pair of these but forgot:

They were £35 and they had a desert boot type version for £25
Lots of cheap basics in all sizes, also got a plain dark blue round neck merino jumper for £35.

Literally only went into Ralph Lauren, thought it was open until 8 so was just browsing but then they chucked everyone out at 7.

Acne store was pretty small.

Went in December.

RL home is gone. Which is shit.
Acne had about 7 things in the whole store.
Rapha was better than their sales
CK underwear now seemingly only stocks lines made for discount stores/Tesco etc
Gucci wasn’t bad if you like all that snake jean stuff.
Still the cheapest place to buy le creuset with basically full stock.
Good glasswear deals in villeroy & boch.
Moncler had shit stock and worse prices.

If anyone is paying a visit soon, could you check the Paul Smith store to see if they have any woven check wallets, and their price?

Pretty please Cool

Only decent thing i have ever seen there were tims for £40/50 and still the padding at the top was a weird check pattern which i didnt really care about as my jeans always cover that part.

Got 2 pairs of 7 eyes for around that price each, but haven’t been since it expanded.

It's always poor. Not worth it unless you're less than 30 mins away

Went Monday.
Acne is shite. Nothing you would wear and no sizes in anything half wearable
All Saints is ok deuce but it’s basic tees, sweatshirts or booby prize shirts. No nice suede/leather jackets like I was hoping but some wool coats that looked ok. See better prices in the sale.
Ralph Lauren was better, it’s massive. If you are into Ralph sure you will find stuff. Denim jacket looked ok, lots of shirts.
Best shop is Sandro. They seem to just stock most their season from this time last year, which is what I thought more outlets would do. Only shop I nearly pulled the trigger but I actually find their stuff a bit short on me. Reiss doing the same last season thing but limited stock.
Queues for Gucci and Burberry. Couldn’t see why when I got in there, just rammed with Japanese as always. Don’t follow their seasons as close but always think it looks made for outlet to me.
Paul Smith not as good as I have seen in past. Orlebar Brown was well stocked but still pricey and wrong season unless you going away. Marni didn’t seem to stock menswear anymore
I live up the road (well 20 mins) and if I didn’t I wouldn’t bother. Horrible all round experience as well, starting with finding a parking space. Take a day off and go on a weekday if you have to. Overheard staff saying Thursday is best day as they have the weekend stock in.
