    Top Shop: Top Shop - Europe's largest fashion store

    by Sophie1980 Written Mar 22, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Top Shop is probably the place to shop for clothes if you're between the ages of 13 and 30. It sells men and women's clothes, and has 5 floors including a cafe and a nair bar. It sells clothes that are up-to-the-minute fashionable and does great replicas of runway pieces for a great price. If you're a student you can get a 10% discount, but the prices are comparable with Mango and Zara. Donatella Versace has supposedly shopped here, along with Paris Hilton (good or bad?!).

    Anyway, is a great place to pick up excellent clothes at a good price. The accessories are located on the entry level and they have a wide selection of bags, hats, jewelery.

    Warning: it gets very busy on Saturdays and the changing rooms can be a nightmare. It's open until 8.00pm (maybe later on weekends) so avoid going during the peak lunchtime period.

    My favourite shop.

    What to buy: Accessories, esp. bags. They also have a 'vintage' section, which has some unusual pieces. It's on the lowest level, and worth a rummage. When I was there last they had some great leather bags.
    Oh, and there's a fantastic selection of shoes, with loads of brand names.
    You can spend the day here!!!!

    What to pay: It's cheap-ish for me and Europeans, but probably little more for Americans who are used to cheaper prices (from what I've found).
    Some good bargains though.

    Aquascutum: Swank Shopping on Regent Street

    by yooperprof Updated Feb 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Founded in London in 1851, Aquascutum is synonymous with high quality men and women's clothing. I think of them particularly as their clothing as ideal for damp cool London fogs. They are especially well-known for their raincoats - go figure. This is their "flagship" store.

    Shoppers heaven

    The stores on Oxford Street have the best deals. In December after Christmas and early January you can walk down the street and the shops are all 50 to 75 percent off!!! I bought a suade jacket for 50 pounds (about 70 USD) and shirts for 7 pounds (10USD)!

    What to buy: You can buy anything from shirts, dresses to suade and leather jackets.

    What to pay: 50% to 75% off regular prices

    East Ham: Cheap shopping (unbelievable isn't it!)

    by empbu Written Dec 12, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The area itself doesn't really look that appealing, and I got the impression that the area was quite poor (?). In few of the stores people had just thrown everything on the floor and we were trying to make our way through all that stuff. :) But we found plenty of nice clothes, bags, shoes and even jewelry, and the price was half of what we saw elsewhere in London.

    SAVILE ROW

    by Pomska Updated Nov 18, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want an extremely high standard shirt, tie or suit, you must absolutely visit the Savile Row. Sawile Row is a world of starched shirts. The flagship store comprises 2 000 square feet of polished floors and huge fullfront windows.

    DESIGNER SHOPPING

    by Pomska Updated Nov 18, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Everyone knows that London is one of the world's fashion capitals. That's why it's so great place to shop designer clothes if you only have the money. Everything is sooo expensive!!!!

    Burberrys is a classic English brand which is
    very trendy at the moment. Stores are in 161-165 Regent St. and 18-22 The Haymarket.
    Mulberry outdoes Ralph Lauren in packaging the English look. It sells top quality leather belts, bags and cases, wool jackets, coats, sweaters and linen pants. The store is in 11-12 Gees Ct.
    Paul Smith sells well-tailored suits, shirts and ties for men. The store is in 41 Floral St.
    Jigsaw is popular for its separates that don't
    sacrifice quality to fashion in a reasonable price. The store is located f.ex. in 21 Long Acre, Covent Garden.
    Nicole Farhi suits the career woman who requires quality, cut and style in a suit. Prices are high. The store is located in 25-26 St. Christopher's Pl.
    Calvin Klein is located in 55 New Bond Street.
    Chanel's store is in 26 Old Bond Street.
    Emporio Armani is located in 112a New Bond
    Street.
    Gucci is located in 32-33 Old Bond Street.
    Kenzo's store is in 15 Sloane Street.
    Prada is in 44-45 Sloane Street.
    Miu Miu is located in 123 New Bond Street.

    Well this pertains to Oxford street as a whole. It's full of a great variety of stores. You can be sure to find the latest in fashion here but expect to pay for it. London is not cheap.

    What to buy: Clothing is a definite if you want to look chic.

    What to pay: Expend to spend upto 500 dollars for 2-3 nice items. I paid 88 dollars for a shirt from Hugo Boss.

    Jermyn Street: Exclusive traditional menswear

    by phil_uk_net Written Oct 17, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jermyn Street represents something from a bygone age. This is the place to buy handmade suits and shirts - at a price. Expensive but there are still lots of people around who can afford it.
    There is also an old-fashioned barber shop with all kinds of fancy shaving gear and lotions.
    -----
    Note - the blue plaque next to the shop in the photo is a common sight in London. It indicates that someone famous once lived at that location. They are everywhere. This one tells us that Isaac Newton lived here from 1642 - 1727.

    What to buy: Mens clothes and shaving gear.

    What to pay: A lot more than M&S or Next!

    If you are in the Covent Garden area and are after designer gear head for Floral Street. It has both mens & womens boutigues, and Paul Smith has taken over several shops!
