I've never been before. I've already got Uniqlo, Dover Street Market and Liberty Store noted.

Food recs are also very welcome!

 

Selfridges. Harrods.

Other Shop is worth checking out.

Dude, Other Shop is sweet. It's full of minimalist tailored pieces aka my sartorial crack

Albam, Trunk, Oliver Spencer, Darkroom, Garb Store, Oliver Goldsmith.


Someone asked a similar question not to long ago, with a lot of answers.

Anyone remember about that long-sleeve white top/sweater, Ann D maybe, someone posted about a while back?
Think he said he bought it last summer and that he was so happy with the purchase since he had gotten so much use out of it
Possible it was posted in response to a pic of something similar-looking

(need/want something else than plain t-shirts to wear for summer)

Yeah, this is pretty much my favourite area for shopping in town. Get off at either Old Street or Liverpool Street and spend the afternoon walking round to the other. You've got Start (Acne, MMM, EG, etc) and Mr Start (more formal, mostly suiting) on Rivington Street, over to Goodhood at Hoxton Square, round to Present, over to Anthem (anything from Kapital to Dries), round to the SEH Kelly workshop (surprised you don't stock these guys GDL?), down to Redchurch Street for Hostem (one of the best shops in town, every time I go in it makes me want to drop a ton a cash and change the way I dress), walk right along to the end and turn right and walk down Brick Lane. At the Truman Brewery you have Son of a Stag, which is mostly full of Japanese and American denim but also stocks some cool stuff by Spellbound and others which you won't get anywhere else in London. Rough Trade is opposite too. Think there is a Folk there and there's another menswear shop that i can't quite remember the name of (Number 6 I think). From there head over to Spittalfields for Albam and maybe 1 or 2 other places.

In addition to all of that, there is a ton of great pubs, restaurants and galleries on the route plus loads of cool wee shops selling all sorts of stuff. If you go on a Sunday, Brick Lane is usually filled with tons of market stalls selling food from all over the world.

Plus you've got all the other great places that everyone else mentioned. If you're at DSM and Selfridges, you'd be as well stopping in the RRL shop. Might not be your aesthetic but is a cool place to drop by and have a wander around. Some of it is almost like a museum.

Levi’s Factory Implicated In Cruel Treatment Of Denim Cows

 VERNON, CA—A Levi’s factory in southern California is facing a firestorm of criticism this week after an industrial worker’s cell phone video leaked on the internet revealing the plant’s brutal treatment of its denim cows....
 
The video’s release marks the industry’s biggest animal cruelty controversy since a graphic 2009 documentary exposed the Dockers factory’s practice of pleating its Classic Khaki cows while they were still alive.

When I go, I have to get my fix of bagel with smoked salmon at Beigel Bake + a bag of plain freshly baked bagels :inlove:

I remember people giving that advice to kids in college on here. I feel the same. I'm in my early 30s and with my mortgage, insurance, and other bills I don't have much discretionary funds left over. I'd much rather spend the money I do have on traveling and other things instead of clothing.

Also on the clothing part I feel quite a few members on here go through style changes. You can see it by looking at the threads on here compared to 5 years ago. When I joined I started wearing raw denim, LL Bean Katahdins, some GV print shirts, and more of an Americana wardrobe. I would never buy raw denim or tight jeans again now as I got bored wearing the same pants everyday. My style changed and I like wearing knits or blazers with a tee and jeans/pants. Nice knits get expensive though so I end up just wearing a tee and jeans with boots most days now. Lol.

You should venture up on to Arnold Circus and Calvert Ave and check out Ally Capellino and Rochelle Canteen or Pizza East (located inside/on the corner of Soho House).



There's a cool Nike 1948 shop on Bateman's Row.



http://theshopatbluebird.com on Kings rd. could be worth a visit as well.

Has anyone handled this in person? How heavy/thick is the linen and how pronounced is that floral embossment?
