Brompton store in London?

Just curious really: on another thread, someone linked to this: http://blog.harriscyclery.com/brompt...st-few-remain/

Itís a really neat jacket and I may stop by the new Brompton Store in London when Iím over in the UK in a few weeks to see if they have one and if it will fit me.
Is there such a place? I can't see anything on the Brompton site, mind you they have a link to "shop" that only has a DVD and a tie; you have to realise that "bike builder" is what you need to order a bike, so it wouldn't surprise me that they might bury it somewhere. My google searches only told me that tommy hilfiger has a flagship store in Brompton Road.

Seems unlikely http://goo.gl/maps/1wZdb

(it's on my way to work, but at the entrance to motorway and a 6 lane A-road, so even less cycle friendly than the above suggests)

Looks like that's it. Thanks.

In my defence, it opened two weeks after I posted the question

Edit: and the person above is unlikely to find the jacket there: new stores tend not to have stock of things that were discontinued months before it opened.

Factory Owned? Or Franchised .. certainly Posh ..

when you get there and ask, in person, then all will know..


associate a product with affluence and you can charge more, and visa versa.
