Had a look in Salisbury yest, Maharishi and MHI zip sweats from 2002, Gravis Lowdowns, Marshall Artist jacket in the clearence section for £20.

Found this site whilst lookign for a pic of the jacket, anyone had any experience of them before? Some nice tit-bits in the sale section, and selvedge Edwins are £85… http://www.fashionsupport.com/redsquare/estore/store.asp?id=5&menu;=3

Oh, Levis Blue jeans £35 a pair at Gunwharf last weekend.

I felt dodgy enough in the changing rooms ripping the tag off to actually swap them!
They wouldn't of had a clue though, the women was like 'true religion?, £79.99 wow, I have never heard of them, are they designer?'
I found a old Maharishi jumper I bought from there a while back and have never worn, so had a little play with the price tags, its nothing to worry about, onyl noticeable if they were to have a real close look.

Months ago a bought a female (no cross dresser) Jil Sander top in TK, just incase it'd do well on ebay, took it back only for the (wayyy overweight) bitch to say 'Who's Jil Sander!? Never heard of her.'

Forgot to mention… Rock & Republic jeans in Salisbury, £70.

Yeah tried on a pair of R&Rs also but whole large pocket things on both those and the true religions made me feel abit gay in them.

So would it be possible to go in two different trips, buy an expensive pair of jeans one time and then get a shit cheap pair the next so they are on different trips. When you get home swap the tags and then return the cheap ones with the expensive price tag on and get a refund?
This is the tag swapping one isn't it?

Why do you need two trips? One will do, all the items scan in as is 'Mens denim', 'Mens outerwear' etc etc

Get worried by my constant posts on this thread… my excuse is that TK is next to Sainsburys, so its easy to pop in!

Aquascutum (sp?) navy blue suit with white chalk stripe, size36 for £130. One problem… double breasted.
