Dear LJ brain trust

Can anyone recommend anywhere for online purchase of clothes? Must either be based in the UK (for preference) or deliver to the UK without a million and one hidden charges (probably only if I can't find any UK ones, or if they are really incredibly awesome). Other than that, no restrictions other than those imposed by sanity (which means that anyone linking to a site selling $4000 bridesmaid dresses for three year olds will be glared at).

Ebay's pretty good for burberry and dirty socks... :p

Ebay is in fact pretty good for clothes in general. I have recently taken to purchasing clothes off Ebay and have yet to be disappointed. Basically, the pro is that Ebay clothes are really, really cheap, the con is that you are taking a risk because if they don't quite fit right or something you can't send them back (although you could put them up on Ebay again).

I haven't tried them myself and I don't know how they are on UK shipping. It's also a bit more than I usually spend on clothing (but then, I usually get hand-me-downs or gifts and almost never buy clothing, when I do, I buy cheap stuff as I have no money).

But this was recommended to me as very durable, decent clothing http://www.devalifewear.com

My wife and I have bought a fair amount of clothes recently from Lands' End (sic); they tend to run a bit expensive but are good quality.

Also, they have an extremely liberal returns policy: "Guaranteed. Period." Basically, if you're not satisfied with their things, at any time and for any reason, return them for a full refund or an exchange. I've even sent back things, on at least one occasion, that had been worn for months if not years but that had developed holes which, I felt, should not have been there in such a time, and got a full refund.

Also, they have a toll-free telephone number in Germany - and apparently also in the UK. We've ordered only by phone so far, but we could have used the web site.

Lands' End UK is at http://www.landsend.co.uk/ .

If you like to have some paper in your hands to look at, they'll also send you a free catalogue (I prefer that to digging around a web page).

The thing I liked when I bought clothes from http://www.simplybe.co.uk/ was that returning the clothes that didn't fit was very easy. I packed them back in the bag they came in and soomeone came and picked it up, and I didn't have to get myself to the post office.
(But this was in London. I don't know if they have it where you live).
(and I got a tunic with sequins on it. shiny :)
