Bought from here last week for the first time. Was impressed tbf

Been going to their Winter/Summer sale for years. Nearest place to me other than Peggs, but always worth the trip.

Correct.

Another for London is Open as Usual, great selection of quality basics.
East West Apparel too for John Lofgren
Clutch Cafe if it hasn't been mentioned already.

Worth putting an International tab as well?

Nitty Gritty
Meadow
Second Sunrise
Deru etc.

Clutch are part of the publishing house / whoever does Lightning in Japan aren't they?

Might be same company that owns a lot of brands they stock as well. Always the same ones in the magazine's.

I'm sure someone more in the know can say.

I'm unable to do this any more since Super Ed took away mod privileges. You'll have to PM him directly and hope he gets a message notification.

I think it is. TBF this is the same with Trunk. The owner Mats is Tyler Brules partner, which is why Trunk and it's stocked brands are always in Monocle.

Thanks for the international list Hanto - great reference.

I'm going to leave the first post as primarily UK based, as thats where 90% of FUKers are likely to shop from, otherwise the list gets a bit daunting.

Really happy to see The Allotment Store in Leeds getting some love. Sol is such a top bloke.
