When brands go cheap, we lose it for sure. Dollars And Pounds is a superstore selling all things youth. You can find export surplus apparel here ranging from Zara to Ralph Lauren and Nike and many more, for a fraction of its actual price! Brand addicts on a budget will love this store (just like we do because we ain't rich). They have two outlets in Chennai - Adyar and Nungambakkam.
Dollars and Pounds have everything for that cool college-goer vibe — casual and formal shirts, tees, pants, jeans and other clothing like casual wear, sportswear, innerwear and also accessories like wallets, belts, shoes, and shades. It even sells sports posters and sports merchandise (Manchester United, Chelsea, FC Barcelona, etc), perfumes and stationery.
The hanging jet plane, dummy tank and a real jeep shelf account for the funky ambience of the store. Dollars and Pounds has a staircase going over a stream of water, giving it a tropical feel. This is a place has something for all kinds of budgets. The store in Adyar has three floors of happiness. One section has polo tees from Ralph Lauren, Abercrombie & Fitch and Nautica. Another section has sweatshirts and jackets ranging from Adidas to Nike. The formal shirts vary from brands like Zara and Ralph Lauren to name a few. You'll also find jeans from Levis and Diesel here. However, be wary of the first copy pieces, as not all products there are genuine brands.
Hard to find biking gear in the city? Worry not, because Dollars And Pounds has it all. They have a separate section for biking gear like jackets, helmets, and gloves with amazing choices too. The store even sells rock band tees which we love pairing up with high waisted jeans.
