    Not a place that I have shopped in terribly often, but I can appreciate it's uniqueness amongst all the London shops I know. So, will the new owners chase the profits, does this mark the end of what gives Liberty it's je ne sais quoi?

    Liberty London sold to new owners in £300m deal

    Why is the sale of Liberty from one private equity firm to another it's 'end'?

    I'm sure I read the timbers on the outside are from a ship. They do a lovely Christmas window display. Always have an evening window spotting. We usually start there and then head down Carnaby St, Regent St, Picadilly, then pub.

    Always thought it would burn well compared to say, Selfridges.

    Depends what sort of suit. If it's a special, One off, it's a wedding suit, never to be worn again.
    its difficult coming to terms with how much money people spend on weddings. :confused:
