To the OP, this move'll be good for you.
About 15 years ago I discovered that Ralph Lauren shirts fit me better than any other (I'm as skinny as a rake) and that they last a long time. But they were pricey! Then I discovered a factory outlet that sold them very cheaply. I've since bought about 50 of their shirts. I generally rotate through 4 pairs of Levi's, but will don a pair of dockers if the occasion merits it ... I buy those in bulk when they are on sale ...

PeachTree City is only about an hours drive from a half decent outlet mall
http://www.tangeroutlet.com/locustgrove/directory/

your wife may find something there to her liking

The nearest half decent sized mall to Peachtree city is Southlake Mall in Morrow

Mall of Georgia just off I85 is the largest in the state

Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza are both places to be seen at but are too rich for my personal taste

ASOS delivers to the US and its decently priced.

I always get my clothes from here whether in the UK/US as they have loads of cool stuff and in the US I haven't found any of the kind of clothes I like unless they are overpriced in designer shops

We're talking about clothes shopping now. You as a man should understand!

and I'm glad of that!! Our kids stuff went well, especially the "old fashioned" stuff- wooden train, firetruck, the guy with the magnetic filings that you used to give him hair and a beard, say, is that what you use??, puzzles and books. The adult stuff not so much although there is a "coffee table' book Ray would like on fancy American cars of the past.

I was also pointing out the Effingham County hairdo to my DH, which is the big upswept bang in the back with nothing else going on with the (long) hair in the rest of the "do".
This style is known as the "I'm closer to God than you" style.




We counted it a success because they had funnel cakes there!

And you think the best way to find out is by pinning your question onto the end of a six-month old thread with the subject line "High Street shops in US"?
