Ok firstly most shops I go into sell rather crap stuff and/or is too expensive. All I want is a shop to buy some nice casual clothes that suggests that im not 16 anymore . But since im going to university I need it cheap as well :O. Any decent student shops? Suprisingly I heard oxfam is a good choice

Heh no worries . Yeah Topman (meh it's the same as topshop) do have some cheap quality stuff in. I haven't heard of primark but if I see it and ill go and have a look unless it looks mainly women orientated. I have some pride! .

Since your all women, what do you think makes a guy look more...older, im throwing away all my hoodies that make me look like an 12 year old skateboarder

As a bloke - do not shop at topman, river island, next, burton etc ... it's all high street crap, deep v neck "vintage" t shirts with holes in them, horrible layered t shirts, generic striped polo shirts, customised blazers and awful ripped jeans. I could go on, but I won't.

I would hate to look like every other bloke at a wetherspoons pub on a Fri with their awful dyed trendy mullet that was fashionable with hairdressers around 3 years ago.

I would suggest that high street stores be visited only for basics and only really H&M if you're a bloke. I'm a mix of ebay, vintage clothes shops, charity shops and H&M basically. It's cheaper too that way.

I'd agree-I get all my clothes from H&M, Primark and TK Maxx. All mega cheap and I worship H&M.

I tend to buy my stuff from CULT or USC in the sales, republic and topman are decent enough places as well.

But yeah, i wait for the sales!!

Is it only me who can never find anything decent to buy in Primark because thier local store is AWFUL. It is just one huge mess of a shop that sells rubbish clothes near me-the same with H&M in fact. My local H&M could easily be mistaken for a badly organised jumble sale. It makes me sad because I feel I am missing out on some great bargins!! (Must treat myself for a shopping trip to Manchester or somewhere to visit the decent branches of these stores!!)

Can't you do a shopping trip to London if you're planning on getting a whole new wardrobe? I know they have an H&M there for sure

If you're going to London, do Camden for cheap vintage t-shirt in every colour under the sun, jackets etc.

Also, Urban Outfitters is great, if a bit more expensive. Their men's range is way smaller than their women's though. The kind of place to get one or two key pieces to hold everything else together.

Yep, and H&M again. Very reasonably priced. I'm quite disappointed in the Oxford Street H&M. Its neat, but not that huge.
