    How do I stop google redirecting me to a .co.uk site?

    I've tried logging out of gmail account and searching from google.com
    also turned off my location on the mobile phone to see if that helped but nope.
    How do I get to www.abercrombie.com :mad:

    is it as simple as just not using google (will test that theory now)

    Looks like it's the abercrombie site redirecting you, not Google :)

    You could try using a US web proxy site, though not sure how secure they are or if i'd presonally be happy putting any payment details through them......

    I was about to say, is it not just the same product with the convenience of having the prices converted....However, Abercrombie do sell their stuff for a lot less in the States, iirc?

    Yup, www.abercrombie.com has always geo-ip'd UK people to the UK website. I remember (back when it was $2:£1) paying $50 for a top.... it was £50 here.
