Where do you get them from?
both buying and selling clothes
Thanks for asking
this was the last thing I bought
i don't want to believe you
its crafted from the finest cotton, I'll still be using it when i'm 120 years old.
That's why I bought this too and i'm waiting for it to be delivered right now
I'll never need to buy another oversized grey jumper in my lifetime while all you sheep shell out the cash year after year as one after the other of your oversized grey jumpers falls to pieces.

is that it's not an actual shot of the sweater - It's a mock up. So the actual item could be completely shit(ter).
they're all photographed with instagram fake retro faded colours of course >__> https://www.facebook.com/mrguguandmissgo
Love this tho
think this is my favourite though
reminds me of this
I try the clothes, then maybe buy online.
Sometimes ebay - but every time it's not perfect.
So basically, nowhere as there's no substitute for trying on clothes before you buy them.
There's also here:
Those shirts are very, very tasty. Nice emphasis on the collars is something I like.
Places I end up using regularly though, sometimes ebay too:
2. noticed they referred to their shirts as 'shirting'
3. closed tab
you thought it was a jumper, but no!
Pretty standard terminology for these things...
Other than that, it's usually things I've seen and liked in the shops, but they haven't had the right size in store.

Buying clothes without trying them on first is incomprehensible to me.
The one time I did it, I bought a pair of shoes online that were exactly the same brand & size as a pair I already owned. Thought I was safe there. The new shoes arrived, and they didn't fit properly. I mean they were OK after I broke them in, but never as comfortable as the original "identical" pair, and if I'd tried them on first in a shop, I wouldn't have bought them.
Same with shirts, trousers, everything. Sizes change so much from brand to brand - like with jeans, I'm usually a 32 waist, but a lot of the time I'll find a 31 or a 33 fits better. I'm guessing a lot of you people spend a lot of time sending stuff back in the post.
if it's a style you're already familiar with (Levi's 511, say) then it's safe, brands you know well...Carhartt I'm medium in anything other than t-shirts which I buy in small, same for stuff printed on Fruit of the Loom, Hanes, American Apparel et al...you soon learn what you are.
I wouldn't risk jeans/trousers of whatever type by a brand I don't know...Levi's/Dockers are a safe bet, I sometimes buy two pairs of the identical item and post one pair back (free return) to compare sizes. Coats are harder, but again you learn what size you are in a particular brand, which have a more fitted look, etc.
You can also find out a lot on sites like style forum/dappered or just on blogs...if you're looking for a Schott slim-fit pea coat you can guarantee you won't be the first one who has wondered about the fit and you find stuff like this...
It's far better than trawling around shops, never finding what you want in the size/colour/style that you want and probably paying more for it too.
best fitting jeans i've ever had.
feels like i'm wearing nothing at all
nothing at all
coggles.com is good but very expensive (for me anyway), so more of a one-off treat purchase round your birthday.
There are some good sites which sell label stuff on the cheap, m&mdirect.co.uk is the most reliable but seems to have a lot of yukky sportswear in at the moment. It's worth trawling through, though, as you can get some nice stuff at knockdown prices sometimes.
Quality is still generally awful, but they've upped their game in how things fit and look.
Yoox and Zoovillage have good discounts on designer stuff, if you can get past the crap websites and how the clothes look on the models.
is very nice too, whenever I'm at my parents I love going in there. Staff are great. Sale this year was a bit rubbish though.
for higher end things.
it's too small though. Can't be arsed taking it back and they don't have any in a size large left.
It's very nice though.
So, yeah - zara's pretty good if you know what size you are (like I don't)
