Gentlemen and fellow followers,
With the clocks moving forward an hour, and the Spring nearly upon us, it was time for us to upgrade our wardrobe and accessories at one of London’s stylish shopping outlets. We decided to embark on a luxury journey for the day from London for some luxury shopping to the renowned Bicester Village. Technically speaking, Bicester Village is located on the outskirts of Oxford, an 1h15 North West of London.
Bicester Village is part of the Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages by Value Retail. The company specialises exclusively in the development of luxury outlet shopping villages. In fact, during our last visit to Barcelona, we visited La Roca Village which is part of the same group for some international outlet luxury shopping.
A kind word of caution, for the fellow gentlemen wanting to attempt the exploration of Bicester Village, we would strongly recommend having an early night to visit the village at its opening to fully enjoy the experience. Surrounded by likeminded gentlemen and fellows, it is easy to get carried away!
We visited several of our favourite brands during our visit, Burberry, Polo Ralph Lauren, Coach and Timberland to name a few. You can find the full list of stores here.
One of our new acquisitions was Timberland’s Earthkeeper Heritage 2 Eye, also known as Timberland’s Boat shoe.
Made from premium leather and rawhide lace, it is a classic item for any gentleman. The boat shoe can be worn for both formal and informal events and a nice addition to ones summer style. You can find them on the official site here or even better you can go to Bicester Village to pick them up!
Another luxury acquisition was the Coach Cardholder which we have been trying to locate for some time now. Crafted in tanned leather with hand-aligned pockets, it is a nice accessory to complete your business look.
So Gentlemen, if you are looking for a day out close to London, Bicester Village is the place to visit should you need a new wardrobe or new accessories to upgrade your look.
