    Hello all [​IMG]. I've been browsing through the Style Forums looking for a thread on good websites for shopping clothes, but I can't find any. I've also tried the search feature, but that doesn't help me much either. I know of a few sites myself, but I am quite sure that there are many good sites out there that I don't know of yet. That is why I'm writing this. Any suggestions as to were I should spend my money next time I shop online? Thanks in advance, Logo [EDIT] Oh, btw. I'm not looking for online auction sites like eBay, but websites like BlueFly and Yoox. [/EDIT]

    there are simply very few sites which sell designerwear from multiple designers and do it well. Such is cyberspace for now and the immediate future...

    yoox.com has more obscure designers and towards the end of the season starts to put monstrous markdowns on their clothing. Some items can be had for less than 25% of their original price.

    I recommend this guy: http://www.auctionworks.com/store....=456710 He also sells on EBay as "the world's finest" I've bought stuff from him in both places. Only source of Barba shirts I've ever found. Amazing source as you can see for Borrelli. His name is Ian Daniels.

    agreed on Ian... prices are not phenomenal on a lot of things but very good, and he gets items most Ebay sellers never could. Great service all around as well...

    I agree on Ian's prices -- they actually used to be better. Borrelli shirts used to be just $129; now as you can see they are generally $160. But still many bargains abound. Plus, his shipping is impeccable. Barba shirts, for example, arrive in the original ultra solid and slick Barba box.

    Why do you people show me this? I don't need any more suits. (Those are excellent prices. ) [​IMG] Show me some sneakers; at least I need some (and cost less than $800 or $1100, etc...). Jon.

    There is a lot of Japanese sites selling authentic items although their prices are high, and they tend to sell out.

    Also vialuisaroma I believe.

    I wish I had never heard of Ian Daniels:

    4 Borelli Suits
    2 Borelli Shirts
    1 Borelli pant
    and 1 Barba shirt ordered from this excellent ebay seller.

    Highly recommend.
