  • Tk max
  • john terry years ago sold some great stuff
  • Oxfam save the children fund cancer research the heart foundation
  • Again, Urban chaos in Bromley sells pretty good gear, Virgin Mega store, Lillywhites for alll you sports fans out there!
  • you what....?
  • where are they
  • All crap! Forget Orpington, go to Bluewater!
  • All crap! Forget Orpington, go to Bluewater!
  • All crap! Forget Orpington, go to Bluewater!
  • All crap! Forget Orpington, go to Bluewater!
  • Get ur shirts from here u bums!
  • There are NO clothes shops, exept the skanky pikey ones in and around the lovely walnuts. Fake burberry and other such fakeness.
  • Oxfam is the favourite among the pikeys and their 'wimmen' in their all-in-one pink tracksuits which highlight their dirt brown skin and pre-teen pregnancy.
  • Oh dear do I need to say anything at all? the height of fashion is roughly mark one, new look and tone clothing, and if u want a bargin then theres always one of the million oxfam shops but no one ever goes in them. Thats why they need more and more because they don't make enough money. Theres also a very tastful M&S for the older resisdent, perhaps a visit to peacocks is good idea too? I recently spotted a Priya (god forbid) down the end of the highstreet near Asks. Why WHY bring this hideously pink and lycra REVOLTING PIKEY shop to orpington?! MAKE IT STAY IN BROMLEY (where more pikeys reside) (at least though there are real people in bromley such as grungers and skaters) For the up makret citizen, there is also Burton and Dorathy Perkins.
  • Woolworth, Peacocks, an M&S and a MK1
  • The Officer's Club is good, and there are some really good bargains to be found in the market (tuesday and saturday)
  • Dales/ Normans ladieswear
  • new look!!!!!!!!
  • Hahahahahahaha in Orpington?? hahaha!
  • Unfortunatley (for the fashionable girl) there aren't many good clothes shops in Orpington. You may find an occasional bargain in the market, other than that you have to make do with Mark One, New Look, Tone Clothing or Priya Fashions- but I wouldn't reccommend it. Fortunaltley, Bromley is one bus ride away- There are lots of shops there such as Bay, River Island, and Jane Norman that sell smart fashinable clothes that wont fall apart after a week.
  • millets
  • There's Peacocks if you're on UB40 or less (or is it a Primark these days), otherwise the fast train to Charing Cross only takes 25 minutes on a good day, for all other budgets!
  • hmm. have a laugh.
  • It has to be the cheap n' cheerful, Mark One! If you scour the shop theres some pretty decent and cheap clothes in there for a poor Orpington peasant like myself, Tone Clothing is annoying, it seems to be the pikey girl hangout and the people that work there sit and look down their nose at you!
  • All the good old pikey girls of Orpington shop in priya, new look, mark one, or tone clothing. All of these shops sell clothing for around 99p, which is quite surprising as this is quite expensive for their clientelle.
  • THERE IS A GOD!! Thank god we dont have those con artists that charge you loads just for a shirt with a logo on it, we have shops that get you good cloths for cheap prices.
  • Yeah ok I know its cheap.. but Priya fashions does do some nice clothes.
  • Nowt. Well, not unless your into shell suits. Okay, I tell a lie - there is a Robert Dyas here, but that really is about as upmarket as you get in Orpington. We can but dream of Next, Gap, TopMan etc.
  • , mark one is much better, its bigger and they are well pricednew look is ok., but genrlly cater for the stick thin or the fat disadvanteged
  • The best clothes shops in Orpington are the Charity shops. I do a monthly trawl of them and kit my kids out in Next, Gap, Cakewalk, Oilily for a couple of quid.
  • oxfam, oxfam, get my point!
  • Dorothy Perkins - Middle ageed Woman Burtons - Middle aged Men Mark One/New Look - Teens Ethel Austin - Gramps and lil toddlers Tone Clothing/Market/ - Pikey First Sport - Lads
  • ok... forget Mark One and New Look. Think Priya Fashions, Tone Clothing, and the Adams shop!!
  • M and S, Mark one, New Look and other fashion tragedies
  • Not in Orpington - has to be Bromley, Bluewater or "up West".
  • OXFAM is the most visited shop in Orpington, both by Granny and gypsies.
  • Oxfam does very nice clothes at very reasonable prices.
  • loads of charity shops
  • There are none!!!!!!!! Oh, unless you count the endless number of charity shops!
  • a new clothes shop has opened in the walnuts by the florists. they sell snowboarding/skate/surf brands and its cheap for the brands involved. probably wont last long though as most people who shop in orpington wont everything for less than a fiver! i know i used to work there.
  • Not unless you like Oxfam retro chic.
  • Mark One in Orpington is the only one in the area now, but it is good for cheap clothes as is Tone in the Walnuts and Priya on the highstreet
  • Fine if you like charity shops, or cheap-and-nasty. For middle aged fogies who want bargains for work, then the Edinborough Woollen Mill will suit. Otherwise, go to Bluewater.
  • None of any interest.
  • Why would anyone bother to go to Orpington to shop for clothes? Go to Bromley, actually go anywhere else. Unless of course you like the worst charity shops in the world.
  • New Look is as classy as we get (not that I won't admit to a large selection of clothes from that particular chain -labels cut out of course!)
  • Gap - no. Oxfam - yes.
  • Errr... Mark One? Quality Seconds? The market? Orpington is not a place for designer shopping!!
  • The favourite place to get clothes for all the gypsie's in Orpington seems to be washing lines in the back of peoples gardens.
  • There are plenty of cheap and poor quality shops across Orpington. Peacocks, Mark One, etc.
  • Marks and Spencer often has a wider range of casual stuff than Bromley, and Burton's bigger than the one on Victoria Street, London. Not Just Kids on Eldred Drive has just opened, but I haven't been in there yet to see what it's like.
  • Peacocks (not that good, but it is a clothes shop).
  • They're rubbish in Orpington - just cheap and cheerful
  • The Market is good for cheap sweatshirts, jeans etc on a Saturday, M&S and Burtons are still there for old fogeys.....otherwise, no!
