  • Found a great online store selling wolvophenia shirts.

  • none in wolves for new stuff only the charity shops are good and they are hit an miss

  • Oxfam and other charity shops, cool clothes that help save lives
  • Topshop.
  • represent, and tk maxx
  • For non chain stores head too Rowfers penny farthing (hippy )trishas (retro) spellbound(punk) metrofox(fetish and s&m and goth)Eqinox(hippy)warped (skate)
  • most of dem r townie shops but rowfers is ok, if da hoodies fit ya neways!
  • er, lets see now.. theres no good ones, go to birmingham or better still, nottingham
  • I am the joint owner of Rowfers clothes shop and would just like to point out that it is pronounced 'row' as in arguement not row as in boat like your article claims. Sorry just had to point this out. It was a daft name for a dog with a spikey collar that appeared on the rowfers label in the 80's punk days.
  • River Island Topman
  • the 5.99 shop or all them little cheap clothes shops i love them me and my mates spend fortunes on clothes in there in fact know its not clothes but there is a good argos in the shopping center i bought some jely boobs from there once!
  • topshop, diffusion
  • Trishas. Situated behind the lil civic, it plays host to an Aladdin's cave of cool retro clothing. Contains a parka of such gross enormity it is suitable only for the likes of the BFG, Optimus Prime, or 3 children posing as 1 adult by standing on one another's shoulders beneath a large coat.
  • heart foundation and other charity shops often have the odd gem
  • newly erected fire and ice
  • The absolute pit of hell is Diffusion 'designer' clothes shop. Basically it is a shop that sells designers diffusion ranges, which means that the most expensive thing in there is about 50, but the sales girls still walk around and talk to you as thought they work in Prada.
  • Lack of real quality clothes shops. We seem to be still stuck in the dark ages of rockports and henri lloyd. I'm not asking for much just a bit of variety!
  • Theres a small dinky cute shop at the back of a club called the little civic, it sell cool baggies & work shirts at discount prices. Also a few cool hippy shops, rowfers sells clothes, cool bagg, and the best hair dye ever Pennyfarthing sells bracelets, and hippie stuff
  • Rowfer's is great for unusual and colourful clothes (King St)
  • trishas is an exelent shop
  • basically rubbish for clothes,Merry Hills not too far on the bus though. New H&M was a good move though
  • There's two wicked little clothes shops (men and women's) on the corner opposite a pub called Rothwells. Check them out for funky one offs.
  • ROWFERS! Rowfers do the BEST ever threads for the truly individual. They also do some ace hair dye (pink, yum!) and stuff like rings and fluo green fishnet tights and stuff like that.
  • Rowfers is the best place for Greebo clothes.
  • Beaties (men section only) Decota for women, Stay awat from diffusion, Crap clothes expensive prices.
  • top shop miss selfridge
  • If you're sick to death with trendy brands like Adidas and Fila in Wolverhampton you might as well commit suicide because there's nothing much for the alternative fan. Penny Farthing is the closest you get but it stocks mostly for girls. So if you don't want to look like a trendy... move.
  • Village, Diffusion for your labels and clubwear; not that I'd know. Barrets of Feckenham or White Mountain for all the good Outdoor sportswear.
  • Acid Test is great if you are a chap and like wearing 70's type clothing, its ok for lassies to buy them anywhere but us guys have to put up with topman and burton. Thanks to Acid Test!
  • Rowfers! Penny Farthing! (by the way, students, rowfers is pronounced "row" as in the oxford/cambridge boat race not "row" as in the arguments that occur when students try to tell me how to pronounce things in my own dialect and accent)
  • Uno is a kickin shop for blokes with really friendly staff always ready to give you a good deal ;-)
  • Charity shops galore, but do bear in mind this is stuff people from wolverhampton are rejecting
  • Miss Selfridges
  • Pretty poor if you can't afford designer. Next for trousers, matalon for Jeans, topmans gone, burtons crap and Riverislands small. Go to Brummy for mens and womens clothes.
  • All the big names are in Wolverhampton town centre, along with a number of 'studenty' ones on King Street and near the University.
