Is Nigel Hall still going?

Maybe they have done a Sports Direct and put old brand names on tat (karrimor, Dunlop etc).

Most of the other jumpers in there, cheap brands called Simon Carter, Gibson London and a few others, all had the same label inside, same composition, same font, same country. Are things being made on the cheap for TK Maxx to sell?

Yeah, they did the same with Pierre Balmain jackets a few years back.

That's right, TK buy surplus factory hours at cheap rates when brands don't have the demand they expected

Lots of Hardy Amies double monks in (watford specifically) in tan and others in black @ £80.

Don't look like seconds either - nice soft leather on em.

'Gold rush' on at the moment. Shit loads of Coach, Margiela and Pringle in Manchester. A lot of usual crap but managed to pick up a Margiela replica fisherman knit and some Varvartos derby's, total 90 quid.

Edit: To be honest Ive realised recently it's the only physical store I buy from as Manchester itself offers me absolutely nothing in terms of clothing anymore, Oi Polloi included.
