Apart from the obvious high street stuff like superdry etc. that have been mentioned….

Over the last 2 years I have started to loathe the whole Made in England brands that have become more well known, in fact they may not all be 'Made in England' brands, but I mean brands like - libertine libertine, suit, percival, crojack etc.

I feel like they are all watered down versions of brands like Albam and Universal Works and exist only for retail businesses to buy from because they cant get an account from Albam and Universal works etc.

I could be wrong, just how I feel about it.

What brands do you wear then?

Seb totally agree with you, they are just poor versions of Albam and such. Don't know why they have to focus on being so British. Do think Albam has become pretty boring though.

yea I find Albam pretty boring these days too and personally I'm not a fan of UW, but I feel at least these two brands are doing stuff for the right reasons, unlike their peers/imitators.

Agree with Seb on most counts but Lib Lib is has some decent bits IMO. And they are Danish, pretty sure. Think some of the shirting they bring out is decent pattern and fit wise.
Albam has gone boring as fuck not that is was ever really interesting.

Edit: just looked up crojack Laughing out loud so shit

Please fuck off, just because your're getting props doesn't mean you can talk the shit yet.

Didn't really have any need to include Visvim. Wouldn't mind some Flexus either…actually copy and pasted from the list above mine.

Like the Skegway Estlin (?) sneakers as well. Mainly meant I hate the fanboi nature of the brand.

I know what you mean… If i took a pair of Asda George shoes and posted here as the latest Visvims, fukers would be jerking off to them…

Same on every forum. Always a brand that gets props no matter what.

I take back what I said about the Virgils though, Visvim ruin everything with that disgusting heel insert.
