Oh and yes his bags are totally cool! And they wear very well, I've got one with a cowskin print leather that must be cloes to 10 years old and is still in fab condition. I also have the long ladies stripe wallet that I got for Christmas and still looks like new after being used daily

And Harvey Nichols
I think alot of people have stopped stocking them PS have decided to be very picky on who stocks them. Think they are trying to make them a sort after item. i saw them in selfidges in London last week. I don't think anyone in Brum stocks them:cursing: No surprise there though may have loads of shops but they are all full of Sh*te:yes:

I've got a Paul Smith wallet which I got from elux. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it's so cute! The leather also feels nice and sturdy. It's nice to hear people talk about them, cause I never hear anything about his stuff.

Adversely it could have gone the same way Maharishi went, the brand got utterly overexposed and loads of stores dopped it because their sales fell through the floor.

Maharishi for example has been dropped in ladieswear at Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Harrods! That's some major exposure they've lost....not good for a brand

I bought my boyfriend a Paul Smith messenger bag. It was on sale from Elux (only $299!). He adores it. He's had other man bags in the past, but this one is his favorite. I was really impressed with the quality of the bag when it came. I would definitely buy more Paul Smith in the future.

I think Maharishi was dropped partly because they didn't innovate enough - their motifs and patterns are gorgeous, but their designs are always a little same-ish, IMO.
