Yes - they're of totally average construction and quality, and probably of little interest for the average SF member. If it didn't have the N&L label you'd not stop for a second look.

Thanks--I figured as much, especially given that they're being retailed through the House of Fraser!

I've always wondered about these N&L items that you see on eBay for next to nothing.

Such as the shirts for £19.99 BNWT.

What's the deal here? They're simply licensing out the name? All those items look really shoddy and nothing like you'd expect from N&L.

Agreed, I think they are awful but then again, for that price it's better than something from tj max

If anyone missed Will's conversation with RJMan on the A Suitable Wardrobe podcast, you should really check it out. It's really fascinating.

+1 seems the most likely answer, doesn't it.
