But that doesn't make them any less covetable. With the high demand of such labels in the retail world, their own prices are beginning to catch up to luxury standards. But here, they retain their affordability and high-quality. Shopping here is a win-win situation for all!

And with brands like Coach, Lacoste, and Reiss around, that's what you'll want to do!

What would a shopping district in the English countryside have? Don't answer meat, cheese, and baked goods, because that's not it.

Bennett are all here, with prices that are so far from what you've seen in the capital it's hard to believe they came from the same labels!

Here, brands such as Ralph Lauren, Tom Ford, Versace, and more are available. but the best part, of course, is that they're all within a more affordable price range.
