Best place in Europe to buy clothes - Page 2

post #16 of 27
I know I should search... but the threads are unruly. Three super, super quick questions.

If I'm in Budapest for one day packing, can I have shoes made and sent to my final location?
What is the price range on a standard made to measure Vass oxford?
What is the price for RTW options at the store?

Thanks!

London is the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe...
Go shopping and eating out and you will be most likely served by a Polish ,French ,Spanish,Russian,German or Japanese person...
I think that more than a third of the London population was born abroad and that is not including the local ethnic minorities..
To reply to your questions ,it will depend on what you want...Milan ,Paris (for women and shoes),Naples ,Vienna,Madrid ,Barcelona have all different sartorial specilities..

Just looking to buy some good quality (something Australia is currently lacking) casual/formal clothes.....sounds like London is the go.

I've been to the three (London/Milan/Paris) so-called "fashion capitals" of Europe and I prefer London any time. If you have time, head to Bicester Village in Oxfordshire near Oxford. Some of the biggest names have their factory outlets there.

If memory serves me right RTW prices started at 150,000 HUF, but dont quote me on that. Having yourself measured and then sending the product to your final location is not something Ive inquired about, and you be best to ask in person.

As far as prices on specific shoes Id search the forum
http://www.styleforum.net/private.ph...m&pmid=1072432

Calf $630 U/F Last $700
Cordovan $760 U/F Last $825
Chukka Boots $675 U/F last $760
Cordovan Chukka $800
Theresianer Boots $800
Bal boots, 9-eyelet $800 U/F Last $880

How about geographically?

Jibrakhan ,do you live in England to make such statement?
England is becoming more and more continental in their socio-cultural habits due partly to the yearly cheap package holidays to the sun taken by much Brits to Greece,Spain ,Italy or France...
People now have adopted the cafe culture ,outdoor dining spotsand so on...
People are drinking more coffee than tea for example and Italian ,spanish ,Polish or French delicatessen foods are available in every supermarket...
There is also another factor ..The recent influx of working migrants in England has also modified the socio-cultural psyche of the country...
I live in the south-east part of England ,not the cosmopolitan London ,and in my close one of my neighbour is Slovak and another one is German...

Dam Slovaks and Germans are everywhere. LOL.

Putting aside the recent immigration to this country, is the country then socio-economically African? Or perhaps Asian?
post #26 of 27
My very own subjective view, of course, but I always tend to find more interesting clothes shopping in Italy than in any other European country.
post #27 of 27
The English have style ,but the Italians have flair...
Every big cities are now offering the same designer shops...
If you do want some Ralph Lauren ,Zegna,Armani or Gucci ,you will find it in London ,Paris ,Milan Prague,Vienna or Madrid...
If you do want something more specialized like bespoke shoes or suits ,some cities will offer you more than others..
London is great for bespoke suits with Savile row , Paris offering also Charvet and Cifonelli and Naples has Rubinacci and so on..
Study what you want ,the style you love and then go to that particular place..
