one of my lovely friends is opening a store in central Leeds selling design books, journals, contemporary gifts, prints, cards & wrap
popped in to see her the other day they'll be stocking lots of fashion magazines including lots of imported mens ones
it'll open in the next week or so online and the store is just opposite the bus station next to the playhouse/wardrobe
thought it might be of interest to the northern fukers

I know this thread is pretty dead but I was just wondering if anyone knows anywhere in Leeds that stocks APC jeans? I know kiosk78 used to but I believe the leeds store was shut earlier this year Sad

I don't think they sell APC anymore?

I think it's just a wash with shore leave and happy socks

Anyone got any recommendations for alterations in Leeds? Simple stuff, need a new zip putting in the fly of some formal trousers and some jeans hemming.

what's the turn around time there?

I hate taking anything anywhere for alterations. That other place in the city centre behind house of fraser is proper shit.

Alter 8 youre talking about Bill… yeah not great
The woman who does Flannels alterations is very good
Polish lady called Theresa…
if you go in Flannels even with items you bought elsewhere and ask for her she'll come and see you
probably worth a phonecall to the store to ask if she's in first

*edit… bare in mind she does alts on some pretty expensive garments (Canali and the like) so she has to be up to scratch

cross keys was off point for food last couple of times i have been. midnight bell next door has been better.

viva is a nice little italian resto, very close to a decent pub called the adelphi.

+1 for arts cafe and little tokyo
the swan also decent pub grub and beers

leeds is really compact - can walk to all these places

PM me if you want any specific info
