Gucci in London

I would like to ask which Gucci location is its flagship, and which has the most menswear for the hubby:

34 Old Bond Street
London W1S 4QL
tel 44.20.76292716
fax 44.20.7496294729

9 Royal Exchange
London EC3V 3LL
tel 44.20.76233626
fax 44.20.76233624

18 Sloane Street
London SW1X 9NE
tel 44.20.72356707
fax 44.20.78389541
I'm guessing Old Bond?

I think so - though IIRC the store is still quite small.

I end up with "Sloane Rangers" more often. But I don't think their men's selection on Sloane is as extensive as the store in New York. (Maybe they were just missing a few things of interest to me. ) I haven't been to the one on Old Bond in order to compare, but I always thought the Sloane location was the main Gucci location in the city.

Old Bond St store has the most men's wear. Gucci was not big into men's wear until recently.

You can also have a look inside Selfridge's Men's floor or at Harrods which may have a wide selection.

Coming to London to shop for designer wear? I fly to the US to get mine. Cheaper prices and lower taxes (but you can reclaim UK VAT as a tourist I suppose that's 17.5% refund at the airport) You must show item at airport to get the tax refund.

"Showdown at Gucci Gulch", referencing mostly men by way of that book title, was about the late 1980s. Don't be disheartened, even if that was shoes and watches.

Well it's true. Up until recently, Tom Ford for Gucci focused mostly on women's wear (though he had some hot men's underwear ).

He's right, the Sloane St. location is their London flagship. I spent a little too much time when I lived just a very short hop from the store (#12 Sloane St).

The stores on Old Bond didn't ever seem to compare selection quality wise to me, however YMMV.
