My personal favourites:

Strawberrynet - Good for make-up although it was a bit slow delivering.

Tightsplease - Good for unusual tights.

La Redoute - French mail order company. They have some nice, cheap stuff. The original French site is here and personally, I think the lay out is far better and the prices are also in euro. The only thing is that you must understand French to use it!

Thinkgeek - Handy for geeky t-shirts although I find the postage is quite pricey.

Palmercash - I've ordered some cool t-shirts from here in my time!

Lush online - Handy if you find the smell in the stores too over-powering. They were a bit slow delivering too, though.

Hmm. That's all that I can think of for now!

T-Shirt Hell - Amusing/offensive t-shirts

I know people that swear by eBay. Apparently you can pick up some good deals on there, especially on unusual stuff or if you need clothes of an unusual size.

Overstock.com - Internet Outlet Store - VEry cheap designer stuff, the problem is that you will get hit for both import duties and VAT ontop of delivery so bear that in mind. Some of the stuff on there is actually more expensive than usual after you factor in the above.

yes, that's called import tax, anything bought outside the EU is subject to customs tax it's annoying but it's got to be paid and that's probably the reason why you think it was expensive.

Enough chatter - this is supposed to be a thread of links. If you want to discuss other issues such as import tax, take it to the relevant forum.
