Outlet mall? Always seems to carry the odd freak show type sizes

I love the outlet mall. There is generally enough stuff to make it worthwhile (once a year) - it's a bit cheaper but you do often run into issues with sizes (I do anyway).

I was forcibly dragged from the '90s into the 2009-2010 season by the outlet mall.

You'll sort of struggle.

I wear a 12 and it's the biggest size that Dune do for example.

But then in Lacoste, I wear a 10 because their UK sizes seem massively out of line with the rest of the world.

Like clothes, shit varies from shop to shop but I find that Aldo, Dune et al do half decent shoes for fannying about a work in and they both stock a 12, Aldo might go higher.

Otherwise, go to Paul Smith, they've never had an issue fitting on my feet. I love them.

Don't agree - I get plenty of off the peg clothes here (height 6ft 9ins), but my shoes are a problem - not found anyone that stocks my size but a 47 should be available - what about that 'Big & Tall' place in Bank Street?

Clothes less of an issue - I just hate the fact that an XL is a M is an XXXL in different shops. C'est la vie.

Shoes though, I don't struggle to get a 12 but it seems like it's the upper limit in most high street places like ALdo / Dune etc etc.

If you're looking for a 47 have you tried any of the kayak's in Go Sport?

Big and tall- do they have fashionable stuff?-where is bank st?

I'm guessing Mango and Zara won't fit him. grr! Surely a 12 1/2 can wear a 12- if not we'll just chop his toes off!

Scamp- Paul Smith! Im on a budget love! If Primark was here I'd be in there like a shot!

Near Burjaman center , Bur Dubai , go as far as the Metro entrance at intersection and Bank Street runs in towards the Makhtoum Bridge , the shop is 2 mins away across the road .

Really?

Erm. Last pair I bought were from Dune in the Outlet Mall. Aldo normally stock them though.

Do they need to be smart or casual or what?

Go sport might have trainers like that?
