See how that covers the neck? That's what I want (that and for them not to cost £90), but all I seem to be able to find are ones which zip to the collar.


pretty much all Nike hoodies do this
but yeah the cost is quite high.
try sale/outlets.

^I ended up going with Mountain Warehouse via Amazon. The collar (?) isn't quite as high as I'd like, but it's higher than my old one and also many more times warmer. Love it.

Looking to buy some chino-like trousers. Gap have the ones I really want but my leg size is out of stock. Checked Next and Zara for online alternatives, is there anyone else I should check out?

:toot: Only £15 *and* they have my size! Lovely. Thank you! :wub: :wub: :wub:

Has anyone bought GAP chinos? Is the extra cost evident in the quality of the chinos, or am I just paying more for the brand, etc?

They both have free returns. I plan to do the obviously sensible thing: buy from both; keep the one I like the feel of best. What will likely happen: Keep both.

I get a lot of my clothes from Uniqlo, the sizing is great and they're not too expensive.

Got a fantastic hoodie at christmas for £20 (reduced from £30), and it's the best i've ever had...

American Apparel is back but as an online store!! :toot: :toot: :D http://global.americanapparel.com/en/

I used to get loads of stuff in their 70% off sales as RRP was too high imo, clothes very comfy and look nice and casual. I've been wanting a new Flex Fleece Zip Hoodie from them for ages as the H&M or Topman ones etc just don't look or feel as good!

Most of the clothing is not made in the USA now which has brought prices down.

Love the clothes. Hate their sizing. Men's seem to be alright but strawberry float off am I an extra large at a 10-12? Who even buys the xxs stuff? 5 year olds?

I had a look around American Apparel before they closed, but i didn't like anything in there (plus i found them really pricey).

Lately i've been stocking up on summer t shirts from Uniqlo, they have a great range this year, especially the Karakami designs...

Picked up that one a week ago.

I also got a couple which feature Japanese block art designs (Hokusai blue series), but they don't seem to be on the website at the moment.

I find uniqlo cuts unflattering and I dont like their quality, barely survives a few washes.

American Apparel is pretty cool though, if historically expensive.

Funnily enough, i've found uniqlo tees to be better quality than the ones i was buying from Topman & River Island, the sizing is better too.

I'm currently wearing one i bought last summer and it's still in good condition.

Topman tees are the absolute worst, would never buy them again.
