    In England... I like (from what I have seen) Zara, Topman and FCUK. In there are much more male clothing shops!!! and MUCH CHEAPER (like half the price of the UK :P)
    Zara? Yes you must be Spanish.
    If I remember correctly, zara for men shops are called Springfield.

    Calling all guys. I am a normal 18 year old male and I find that in most shops I go to the clothes are a little too.... flamboyant. Any tips for good shops that sell decent clothes than are fairly plain? I buy quite a lot of clothes from Gap purely because it is possible to buy a jumper without a word emblazened across the front of it or a stupid phrase including the word "urban" (apart from those awful GAP fleeces).

    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    I've been abroad for so long, I'd probably be lost if I went clothes shopping in the UK. I'd go for Gap too as it's been the only shop I've managed to find in London, Lyon in France, Toronto, Montréal and Boston. The trouble is, the models change a lot between the European and North American shops. It's a bit disorientating.

    In North America, I usually went to Gap and French Connection and JCrew from time to time and Aldo for shoes.
    Other decent shops were J Crew, Urban outfitters (though most of the stuff inside the shop is crap), Banana Republic for classier stuff and all the ******s went to Armani Exchange. Thank God they haven't opened in the UK.

    Yeah they have even better shoes for girls. They have (or had) a lot of those slutty knee-high boots. Great stuff!

    Here's a link for Armani Xchange: http://www.armaniexchange.com
    If they ever open in the UK, you'll have a flood of posing ******s going there.

    I went to the shop in One Copley Square near the Prudential Center in Boston and it was full of ******s. If I were to be honest, the clothes are sometimes decent but I was ashamed to be in the same shop as some of those people: a lot of international Asian students with too much money to spend and no life.

    Since my favorite store doesn't have site (and is a local one to me), HERE is a good substitute.
