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.

seen these 70s cons in loads of places all sizes for £25 or £30 can't remember. If you can get on with the stressful pattern or can be arsed to dye them all black then they're pretty decent.

seen these too for £28 does from £70 in one place, shall I just grab them UK8?

Quite a few Boglioli jackets in Manchester for deec prices. Also two Bottega bags for the undeec price of £500 each, reduced from £1500, both of which probably couldn't hold more than a magazine and some keys. Chinese tourist fodder.

Reiss one-button suits in a good range of colours and sizes online for 180.

Perfect Christmas party gear.
