Where to go shopping as a man?

by Heiwibad


I'd like to know where you can go shopping as a man without spending a fortune (something similar to H&M or Esprit is fine for me). I need some shoes, a pair of trousers...nothing extravagant, just the usual stuff. I usually pay about 40-50 € for a pair of jeans and 60-70 € for footwear. That's about the money I'm willing to spend.

Thanks a lot!

There are branches of H&M and Esprit in London.

Also Top Man, Marks & Spencers, The Officers Club and loads more places (google names to see websites for examples of clothes, branch locations etc). You won't have any problems finding shops to browse in. Wander down Oxford Street, round Camden Market, up Kings Road, along Tottenham Court Road.....

It is worth looking in shoe shops for mens shoes, rather than just in clothes shops. Again, you will be spoilt for choice.

The flagship Marks & Spencer store at Marble Arch does contain a large selection of stock.


And this is a good place to start your hunt.

As a man, I never spend more than 10 EUR on shoes or trousers if I can help it. They wear out too quickly.

I've never yet tried shopping as a woman. It must be an enlightening experience!

Try the new Westfield shopping centre in west London. Its easy to get to on the Central Line. Google it and have a look at the centres very good website.

Re: Where to go shopping as a man?

Brittania2 had good advice, the new shopping center at SHEPERDS BUSH,central line(red one) or Hammersmith & City line (pale pink)
There I would chek Debenhams (big dept store) chek it at www.debenhams.com
They have rance of good stuf. And somethimes good sales too. :D
Thie RED HARING or TRADER range is exelent quality but not that expencive. also for Shoes chek CLARKS www.clarks.co.uk
also chek NEXT for Quality stuf, simmilar to MEXX, StOLIVER or ESPIRIT.
Oxvorf st is full of shops, and that is logucal place to start, but the shopping centerin Sheperds Bush is better as everything is uncer one roof. If you have car than BLUSE WATTER chopping center outside London at Datford is the biggest one in Europe. I think there is public transport from London, but I can not help there.

Travel Tips for London

Get to soho, & enjoy a coffee...

by gulliver67

Get to soho, & enjoy a coffee in one of the many various cafes in the area. Currently Londons trendiest place to hang out, the area has an arty, somewhat bohemian feel, & is great for people watching. Neighbouring areas are Chinatown, Leicester square, Piccadilly circus, & Covent garden is a mere stones throw away. having various members of the royal family drive by on their way to one or other of the palaces (I work across from St James Palace);- you really cant be anywhere else in the world for this to happen so it kind of marks london's place in one's mind.

London is a Maze

by mrclay2000

Most of London's roads seem to be more difficult to follow than the ordinary European standard. Getting lost here is easy; finding your way back not so easy. Unlike America with its city blocks founded on right angles, Europe tangles its thoroughfares deliberately. One of the few straight roads that runs for any appreciable length in London is "the Mall," which runs a considerable distance from the front gate at Buckingham Palace to one of the centers of London activity at Trafalgar Square. The common link is the 20th century Admiralty Arch (pictured in the background).

Notting Hill

by dvideira

Notting Hill is a place full of charm and is currently one of London's most fashionable areas. It's quite hard to believe that it was described and considered as a non-go area only 40 years ago.

Notting Hill became home to a large number of Afro-Caribbean immigrants, causing some racial tension in the past. Britain's first race riots occurred in August 1958. However, the next year the Notting Hill Carnival emerged as a unofficial reply to the riots; by 1965 it took to the streets and has grown ever since. Its presence in the last weekend of August sees around one million people joining the party, backing up the claim that it is the world's biggest street festival outside Rio. Aside from carnival weekend, Notting Hill is a rather quiet area for most of the year. The exception to this is Saturdays when Portobello Market is jam-packed with visitors hunting through the antiques market.

In the pic, you see the pub The Earl of Lonsdale ( brewerie Samuel Smith's )

Just how unconcerned are the Londoners?

by vyxxyn

I'm sure you've heard more than enough things about how curt and unhelpful Londoners are. Well from my experience, I have encountered all sorts, and some very kind ones too.

Londoners in general are people who mind their own business so if they seem unhelpful they didn't have the intention to be that way towards YOU but it's just that they have something else on their mind and can't be bothered to make the effort to go out of their way to help. They're certainly not racist or anything, after all they live in a very cosmopolitan city, and are generally more tolerant of other cultures than most parts of the world.

My advice is to speak clearly, Londoners (and much of the English) are suckers for good grammar and proper sentance structures. If you have a non-British accent, speak slowly. If they can't understand you first time around, it is very unlikely they will hear you out once again.

More Differences Across The Pond {Chapter 6}

by Elena_007

git: usually an insult with a hint of jealousy, as in, "You cheeky git, you outsmarted me at chess, and you said you've never played before!

(There is also a cheap wine in England called, "Old Git." Don't even bother!)

Gordon Bennett! : an exclamation similar to saying "Jesus Christ!" or "My goodness!

jammy: lucky. As an example,one might say, " You jammy git, picking the winning horse, AND betting substantially!"

lay-by: A parking area on the side of the motorway, known as a rest area in America.

lorry: a large truck, according to English sizes, but not on the other side of the pond. We would call a lorry a "Bob truck." (No idea why!) They are nearly half the size of our 18 wheelers, but the reality of smaller streets equates generally smaller versions for delivery purposes, or street maintenance.

nappy: a diaper in the UK. In America, nappy is a slang word meaning unkempt.
