Cheap fashion stores for skinny men in greater London area?
My name is Matt, I live in Austria and I’m planning to go on a fashion shopping trip to London come June.
I know this might sound a little odd, but I was hoping that someone could help me narrow down the number of shops to look out for, as I really have no idea where to start looking.
About about the style I’m looking for:
Fashion for skinny males,
skinny trousers/ jeans (though, not quite as skin tight, relaxed fit for skinny males)
waisted T-Shirts, Shirts, double breasted jackets/ blazers,
nothing too colourful, nothing too emo/ gothic, coloured highlights are okay
a bit eccentic and weird such as big collars or really angular cut shoulders on jackets
The better the bargain the merrier. I already know I won’t be able to afford anything remotely high-end, I’m not exclusively going for specific brands or designers, though if there are decently priced I’m open to them.
I’m open to second hand stores and markets as well.
I don’t know where to start either, budget wise. Would going to Carnaby Street first be a smart idea, or would I end up spending more there than in other areas? Are there any condesed fashion areas I should frequent? I keep reading about Soho, Brick Lane and Spitalfields, though I can’t find any mention of specific stores in those areas that might fit my criteria.
I know I should check out Topman on Oxford Street, as they don’t have any stores in Austria (only H&Ms and Zaras here) and they seem to have a couple of nice items.
Are those advertised Topman stylists really free of charge? Is it easy to get a hold of one when you’re at a store, or do you really have to set an appointment via phone/ E-Mail ahead of time?
I know, a galore of questions. But in a nutshell:
What are the decently prices must-go-to fashion stores/ outlets/ market places in Central or the greater London area that sell skinny cut trousers/ jeans and waisted shirts/ jackets for men?
All suggestions are very appreciated.
