Its Not Me Its You, London

I just brought some new stuff down to Topshop. For those who didn't know, yes, we have a concession in the Oxford Street shop. Anyway, I had to go by train/tube from Hackney Wick. Jems didn't want to drop me off by car as she had to go to the dentist, and I wasn't going to cough up for the ridiculous parking fares down that part of town. £2.80 it cost on my Oyster schmoyster card. One way!

So here is the thing. I know a lot of online retailers do offer the whole 'free worldwide shipping', but if I were to go to their concession/shop would their stuff be the same price as on their website? I am aware I may need to launch some hardcore empirical analysis to answer that (I will, and I will keep you updated). Our aim is, however, to make affordable, quality stuff from Italian leather in London with the clause of a fixed price, be it in our concession be it on the website. We are not into - are you ready for it? One of my favourite words - hoodwinking the good folk. Hence, if you buy something online there will be a small (and what we deem fair) shipping price. So in the UK you can get a bag delivered to your doorstep in, let's see, Leeds for shop-price plus £4 postage and packaging. If you get more things, we will put it all in the same package and it will still only be £4. For Europe, it is £8 per parcel and the rest of the world, £12.

I don't think you are going to find a return train-ticket from Leeds to Oxford Street in London for under £4, if you do please let me know as it is time I get back to that lovely city for a proper night out! So there you have it. We keep both concession and online prices of our stuff the same, which then means we need to add a shipping cost. This information is on the site here

I will now pay another £2.80 to get back to the Wick. Ah well, say-la-vee!

Be the first to know about new stuff going up here. We promise to only send nice, useful things that we feel you need to know about.


Its Not Me Its You is a brand of leather stuff to carry other stuff, made and printed by hand in East London. Each piece comes with a slogan. Set up in late 2012 we pride ourselves on the quality of the leather, the craftsmanship and the foil-embossed slogans. Your bag is a statement, we believe, and with a 'Its Not Me Its You' bag you will be making that very clear for all to see. You can find us here and in Topshop (London).
