    Hey guys, are there clothing brands that are difficult to get in the UK, that are popular but are too over priced there or hard to get?

    ie. Ralph Lauren, Polo, Sean Jean, Guess, Rocca Wear. etc.


    I am visiting the UK in a few weeks and I have alot of family there which I havent seen in ages. They asked me to get them some clothes, purses etc but im clueless in terms of the brands. I wanna get them a brand they would find different, or that they cant easily get there.

    Any suggestions ?

    They sell ralph lauren everywhere in the uk, but its disgustingly overpriced, i've forked out fifty pounds for a polo. Abercrombie London is just too infuriating to think about shopping there.

    abercrombie is £80 pounds for a pair of jeans when you can get them for the equivalent of 40 pounds in america.

    Mens Hip Hop brands ie Sean John, G Unit, all that sort of stuff. Obviously you can get some of it over here but not a great range, and the prices are really expensive too. Theres a lot of stuff that you can easily get in both the UK and the US, but obviously the main difference is the price- hence why when I go to the US I always buy Levis, adidas trainers, designer handbags etc as the pricers are so much better

    Coach. Really popular in NYC but noone has heard of it here. I bought some stunning Coach boots when I was living there and now that I've moved back, noone has heard of them!:mad:

    Oh, and BCB Maz Azria and Bebe (a bit like Morgan clothes)

    £80 isn;t THAT bad for a pair of jeans. I could easily find pairs for £100-120.

    G - UNIT - I have seen that make loads around here

    So I imagine it must be available a lot on London as well.

    Yeah I was thinking the same. I was expecting the prices to be much higher than that.

    Gstar is pretty expensive over here.

    I was in the US last year and it was about 1/4 the price

    Levis are available here, readily. Twice the price you'd pay in the States though.
