Not greatest for menswear shopping in leeds.

Kiosk 78 - Duncan Street at the bottom of Briggate. Sells APC, Nom De Guerre, Skull Jeans, etc. Online at www.kiosk78.co.uk

Paper Scissors Stone - New York Street - at the side of the Market as if you're walking to the bus station. Products online at www.paper-scissor-stone.co.uk. Wood Wood, Electronic Poet, Rittenhouse.

Harvey Nics - Briggate. Worth a look inside if you're about. Doesn't stock Dior Jeans. But does have Nudie, Prps and a whole host of other brands.

Accent (full of cunts) - Queens Acade off Briggate, sells stuff like Nudie, Lyle and Scott, etc. Can buy most of the stuff here cheaper elsewhere. www.accentclothing.com

Hip - two stores in Thorntons Arcade off Briggate. Have a look at what they sell on their website www.hipleeds.com.

Mr Chimp - in Thorntons Arcade. Havent been in for a while, but stocks some nice tees on occasion.

Aspecto - on Briggate, similar stock to Accent I find, stock online at www.aspecto.co.uk

Urban Outfitters - On Albion Street, near Boots. Doesn't stock half the stuff they do online but has abit of Fred Perry, APC and Nudie.

Flannels - Vicar Lane, opposite Victoria Arcade. Stocks CP Company, PRPS, Garbstore, etc.

Life - In the Victoria Quarter opposite Paul Smith. Owned by Flannels I think, similar stock to Flannels.

Paul Smith - Victoria Arcade.

what happened to Strand?

Obv it was a while back, but theres a big Nandos now in it's place.

Loads of really bad clothing shops in Leeds now, that D-Store, that place that sells Ra Ra University clothing near the Victoria Quarter. If the shopping starts to piss you off or vex you, pop into Little Toyko behind House of Fraser, does some alright food.

Love Little Tokyo, went to Leeds last weekend and that place was one of the main reasons. Chicken Katsu Bento Box ftw!

They've got some April 77 stock in the Urban Outfitters in Leeds, not sure which jeans though.
They also had good prices on APC bits, the varsity is £175. The only APC denim they had last week was New Standards, some sizes were £85 some were £100 which was weird.

Leeds International Film Festival. 4-22 November. I don't know a lot about it though.

Also, check the 'What's On' section of the Leeds University Union website. It has a calendar showing events and nights out in town as well as the Union.
