  • Buddha's Backyard, 38 Albion St, Merchant City. A clothes shop/art gallery/club venue/theatre mixture that really works. No 2 t-shirts are the same. Most of the stock are original designs. They stock clothing for both girls and guys and are well worth a visit if you like t-shirts with a funky, skate design.

  • urban outfitters and Tribal Junkie
  • Flipp , blue velvet jackets , old SS Nazi leather jackets and old security guard uniforms that you can masqurade in , classic .
  • TK MAXX, Top MAn, HIPHOP shop in trongate
  • Best and cheapest shop in the whole of Glasgow to get your shoes repaired (or to get any of those other strange bits and pieces from an old fashioned place) is Eric's cobblers shop in Merkland Street off Dumbarton Road, Partick. Bags, travelling gear, purses, miscellaneous stuff -- it's all there !
  • Cult clothing on Union Street for cool and quirky skater clothes.
  • ALL OF THEM!! GLASGOW ROCKS FOR SHOPPING - BETTER THAN LONDON!
  • try oxfam if your a scaffy bastard if not, flip in towns good.
  • the Free spirit in Buchanan Galleries or Braehead there great
  • cult clothing, on queen street- expensive but cool clothes
  • stretch and farmfoods r gud
  • Cake on Dumbarton Road - the staff are really nice and sexy
  • for neds: JJB sports, Greaves, etc - there are loads of these dotted around sauchiehall street, argyle and buchanana st.
  • Forget d2 and try the huge wholesale outlets behind the St. Enoch centre, at the end of Argyle Street.
  • Flip is awesome for us grungers and skaters as for the more trendy types cult is a pretty good shop and is right beside royal xchange square.
  • Cake - Dumbarton Road (Bottom of Byers Road W.End) Alternative Labels, really good prices. Really nice guys that own the place and some of the coolest clothes youll get.
  • along at Trongate, faraway yet still adjacent to the BHS side of the St Enoch centre, theres a load of cool Skatershops and gothgear places too! -There cyber#, Kozi, MrBen(to be avoided) and a quite a few others! Combined they are similar to everything that was sold in flip the way it used to be -There's hellfire-esque stuff in cyber, and combatty flip gear in Kozi, -GET ON DOWN THERE!!
  • Tribal Junkie, down from Flip.
  • Tribal Junki has moved AGAIN!! The new fashion store in Candleriggs has moved across the road to 8 WILSON STREET. Apparently the building they were in FELL DOWN!! The skateboard store has moved out of Flip completely and is now in the basement of the fashion store in the Merchant City.
  • Loads of them, all bobbins. Yer better off buying clothes in a supermarket. Mind you TK Maxx is OK, a bit bloody American.
  • Kozi , Cyber , Trip clothing , Mr ben , Cult
  • for moshers/grungers/goths/skaters there is 'Flip' to get there you head towards the buchannan shopping center(the bit with the steps)then at the road turning left just before it you walk down that then the next road you come to you turn left again, then walk down that street for about 20 steps and you'll be standing by it. If finding it fails - ask a scary/weird looking person. Another good shop is 'Hellfire' which sells band hoodies, mosher type stuff again. Ask the peeople in Flip where Hellfire is and they will tell you!
  • for neds...sports connection where they sell BEAR USA and ECKO gear, also hat shops ...forge market where they sell 'SLASHER' hats!!!! they wear them
  • All the ones on Buchanan Street!! Particularly Frasers, Diesel, Dune and Katherine Hamnett (when theres a sale on).
  • Urban outfitters do a surprisingly good and reasonable second hand section, also bumbed into Liam Gallagher from Oasis in this section!
  • cult clothing or occasionly flip if doccys working but i prefer the charity shops in the west end sellin all the clothes from the dead students (most of whom perish in their unsafe flats)ur always garenteed a decent nearly new nirvana t shirt in their that some twat from aberdeen bought to impress the lady students
  • TOPMAN, RIVER I, FLIP, and the wee row of shops just after the 13th note cafe
  • flip (hellfire and tribal junkie) and cult clothing are really good shops for baggys and such.
  • Eisenneger, Sauchiehall Street outside main doors of Buchanan Galleries - Wicked designer gear for a fraction of the cost - Hurrah!!!
  • CELTIC SUPERSTORE
  • Dr. Jives and TK Maxx!! The staff in Dr Jives are great: unlike London, these people love the clothes that they sell and if you show even a modicum of interest, they are with you all the way. No attitude, no bullshit. One of the staff even talked me OUT of buying something that she thought didn't suit me (she was right, of course!).
  • Flip has moved to Bath Street. Its slightly bigger.
  • charity shops all over south side are cheaper than west end
  • it is possibly one of the greatest tragedies of the twentieth century that the virginia galleries was closed, it was the best place for cool shops that opened for two weeks, moved, shut down, or decided to start selling nothing but old melody makers; and it had a continual lovely aroma of mary-joanna. i really hope that it is going to be rebuilt. some of its shops have moved to the kings street arcade and that area, what they are trying to call 'the artists quarter' (hmmmm....).
  • Cult clothing in Queen St (across from Flip) - sells cool t-shirts, hooded tops & Elvis pants of all things!
  • Felix + Oscar's in Decourcy's Arcade (just off Cresswell St?)is fucking brilliant. Sells Paul Frank stuff (monkey!), which I am quite fond of, hint hint. Also cute and expensive gear for weans; Tyrell Katz stuff; and Catholic artifact inspired kitsch-o-rama. Nice. Whistles in Princes Square is good for ultra-dear designer stuff with no neds.
  • H&M In Buchanan Gallaries.Cheap but stylish. Next and River Island if u got the cash. Topshop is good for students 10% off.
  • Everyone go to Free Spirit in Buchanan Galleries just to piss them all off! In fact, go buy something from the store at Braehead then take it back to Buckie Galleries! How fun!
  • Princes Square and The Italian Centre for the more discerning shoppers. Dr Jives, Boardwise, Concrete Skates for the seriously fashion conscious. Countless shopping centres and famous high street names catering for a broad spectrum of tastes. Glasgow is undoubtedly one of THE best shopping cities in Europe.
  • Tribal Junki has opened a great new shop in Candleriggs, Merchant City. The original shop in Flip Basemnet (Not Fopp!!!) looks to have gone hardcore skate.
  • Internacionale - the best place to fill your pockets
  • GLASGOW NOW RIVELLS LONDON AS THE 2ND BEST VENUE IN THE UK TO GO SHOPPING! WITH WEEKLY SHOPPING BREAKS A FAVOURITE WITH ICELANDIC PEOPLE, WHO ARE AVOIDING THEIR OWN COUNTRIES HIGH TAXES. DESIGNER LABELS LIKE VERSACE, CALVIN KLEIN, DKNY, EMPORIOR AMRANI, PRESS AND BASTIAN, DIESEL TO NAME ONLY A FEW OF THE SPECIALIST SHOPS WE HAVE. FOR DESIGNER CLOTHES CHECK OUT 'PRINCESS SQUARE', 'THE ITALIAN CENTRE' AND SOME OF THE SPECIALIST SHOPS ON BUCHANAN STREET. WE ALSO HAVE THE COMPLETE EXTREME FROMO THE SWANKY SHOPS, WE HAVE MARKETS, MORE COMMONLY KNOWN AS THE BARRAS BUSTLING AT THE WEEKENDS AS WELL AS LOADS OF THE NORMAL HIGH STREET STORES. THERE ARE MANY LARGE SHOPPING MALLS, SOME WITH ICE RINKS AND ALL WITH EATING FACILITIES. YOU COULD HONESTLY SPEND DAYS GOING UP AND DOWN THE STREETS OF GLASGOW CITY CENTRE, WELL, THAT IS IF YOU HAVE THE MONEY TO COPE WITH YOUR SHOPPING DESIRES!
  • there is a bib gap shop up the toon just at st enoch subway
  • Tribal Junki (downstairs at Fopp) is soopoib. Great clothes at (not so) great prices. Flip is good for second hand stuff, as is Retro on Otago Street.
  • Clan, Dr. Jives at Candleriggs, and The Virginia Galleries stock some rad stuff too.
  • For second hand clothes go to Virginia Galleries off Ingram Street, De Courcy's Arcade for vintage American kitsch gear, or Flip in Queen Street.
  • Dr Jives, 111-113 Candleriggs. THE clothes shop. Stocking the finest threads available, from American streetwear kings Stussy, Fresh Jive, X-Large to more homegrown stuff by Maharishi and Holmes. The Japanes vibes are evident from the smattering of companies like Goodenough and Very Ape to the selvage of the denim, as well as the minimalist design of the shop. Still going strong after ten years, Dr Jives remains on the cutting edge of street fashion. Good clothes, sneakers, bags, jewellery, male, female, young, old, baggy, chic... all present and correct.
  • The Virginia Galleries has now closed down, the building was deemed unsafe. Don't panic , however, MR BENN clothes shop has now reopened on Byres road (very retro gear, from pants to leather jackets).
