    The new Cath Kidston store at the bottom of Grafton Street is the same. I wouldn’t mind TK Maxx too much – they’re just selling end of line stuff, whatever crap is left over elsewhere.

    Ridiculous that somewhere like Cath Kidston though, in opening their new store in a prime (eg. high cost) location like that wouldn’t have put any effort into whether Irish customers would be all that bothered about buying any type of kitsh possible that’s covered in red London buses.

      And what exactly is so offensive about London buses? Who would I be offending by having the audacity to wear it?

        I think it’s designed as a gift from English people to the rest of the world. Especially to Germans.

          Hmmm. If the English had won the World Cup a couple of years ago, then I could see that. But, you know, forty eight years ago – it doesn’t quite cut it as a jape, does it?

          If you don’t believe me, send one to an English friend.

            Have you never read the English redtops? English football is based around the rehashing of old glories.

            Sad, really.

    Well I won’t be shopping there so, I’ll be off to Grafton Street, Dublin and go to Marks & Spencer, Boodles, Boots, River Island, Next or Vodafone or…..

    Ah the Irish. Great champions of old favourites like the Evening Press, Peat Briquettes, Tayto and TK red lemonade. I was in Melbourne Australia during the summer at an Irish shop there and it was so realistic it was selling Twenty Major and all the staff were good looking young Polish women.
