Hansford Menswear: Old fashioned quality
There are not many menswear shops descibed in VT sites but this is worth a mention.
If you are 19 to 30, walk on by to Fat Face just 40 yards up the Road.
This is an old-fashioned style shop, better described as an emporium with old fashioned staff, the emphasis being on old and reminds me of shopping with my father 50 years ago. I have no doubt that with the return of the suit and more classic quality clothes that this type of establishment will prosper again.
In the labyrinthine interior here are huge selections of mens clothes - at least 100 designs of pyjamas for example, as well as accessories, and the staff will help you with anything, I even heard a customer ask for,and get, help in choosing his socks! They also have a clothes hire department.
Ladies, it is a perfect place to get that special gift for the man in your life, and you will be delighted by the couteous and attentive staff.
What to buy: Good for those difficult to find quality items.
What to pay: The skys the limit.
Cathedral Gift Shop: shopping the in bell tower
We always find little things to take home for gifts (or for ourselves) in Cathedral shops. The fact that Chichester sited their shop in the detached bell tower was rather nice.
What to buy: CDs of the choir, tea towels, sweets
