Looking for any decent stores in Glasgow/Edinburgh. Only thing on my list currently is cruise for some new grensons. Any suggestions appreciated!

Glasgow is pretty shite for clothes in all honesty. Urban Outfitters have APC, Aspecto has Edwin and Cruise stocks some decent brands in among a lot of shite. I know the guys from Folk are opening up soon, but not sure when.
Edinburgh has Harvey Nicholls and Odd One Out used to be pretty good. I'm sure there are a couple of other decent shops, similar to Oi Polloi and End.

Best get the train to Aberdeen! Hanon / Kafka / Attic / Pure Man

Brilliant, thanks gents. From Aberdeen just wanted to see if I was missing out anything while passing through. Will give them all a squint. Cheers!

I hear End are opening in Glasgow near Merchant City as are Four Marketing (Stone Island, CP etc)

Good news if that's true - Glasgows lacked since Jives closed in my humblest.

If End open in Glasgow that would be great, the Newcastle OG is my favourite shop that I've never been to.
Whatever happened to Goodlife that used to sell Bape, Original Fake etc? I mind they closed to move somewhere else but then nothing.
Used to rate Goodstead in Edinburgh before it went under. I guess we don't do too bad for clothes shops in Aberdeen.

The talk is End are going to take the current Armani unit and open spring next year with four marketing supposed to be this September but that seems very quick.
Edinburghs pretty much been covered but Harvey Nichols, Dicks, Kestin Hare, Xile, Focus and corniche are the main ones to see.
Did anyone reach sole bloc today at SWG3?

Apparently the End guys/backers are no longer involved but the planned shop is still going ahead. Not sure it was ever going to be an End Glasgow anyway.

Thanks for the suggestions again folks. Dicks and W2 were the clear winners for me. Not only great stock but great staff and no pressure to buy or pompous attitudes. The couple that run Dick's are incredibly passionate about where they source their stuff from. And the manager of W2 was an absolute gent; very knowledgeable from working previously for CDG. Bagged a few nice pieces from both and will definitely be heading back.
Headed through to Solebloc also on the Saturday. Was pretty underwhelmed but I've never been to a sneaker con so I don't really have anything to compare it to. I guess I'm just getting too old for that shit!
