What I bought today...

Just thought that I'd start this topic as nobody has [bothered?] to start it yet!

I was in one of my local charity shops today and bought these women's basket-weave, tassel loafers for only $8.50 AUD! Absolutely brill, to say the least! ;-) Now I can wear them with my new trousers from Sportscraft (see link below) and my Ben Sherman boating blazers! They were made by Australian shoe manufacturer Sandler, as part of their "Easy Steps" collection which still exists today. I think these shoes were an absolute find and would make excellent work and leisure (by that I mean dancing) shoes!

I also picked up two of my lay-aways. The first being two pairs of capris trousers - one pair in black and another in navy. Don't let the "capri" style fool you. They actually look like full-length trouser on me. I paid $105 AUD for each pair, instead of $150.

The second lay-away I picked up today was this lovely dress from Target that I purchased on sale a couple of months ago!

Happy shopping my Mod brothers and sisters! Look forward to reading and seeing what you've bought!

  • Arrived in the post from the UK - another Ben Sherman coat (I'm not apologising, and I really should count how many I have now) - black/off-white houndstooth - but this time 80% wool. Perfect excuse not to pass up, especially in this Winter here in Ballarat...

    Seller's photo, btw!

    • Very nice MG; I use to love houndstooth, and once had a beautiful "puppytooth" suit made by a bespoke tailor in London -  but have to admit to having none in my wardrobe at present. I'm sure it will look and feel great on you.

  • Purchased a couple of these Kamakura shirts this evening, hope they turn out as good as they look, they also make an Ivy style OCBD with rear collar button and hook, if the first ones are ok I will order a couple of those.

    • Interesting! Never heard of them. Let us know what they're like - always on the lookout for good shirts at a decent price.
  •  Liverano shirt. ... 3.5 MOP buttons attached by hand, shirred shoulders, gusset and button holes by hand as well as  placket and collar attachment. Hand notching along placket front and shoulder seams. Cut by hand and made using a single needle construction in Giza cotton. Very light non fused collar lining which makes for a great roll. 4 inch collar point. Attention to detail is mind blowing. Them Liverano boys sure know how to make a shirt!

    • Wow! Looks impressive as Andy says. And sounds expensive. ;)
    • Looks very impressive Harry !

  • Arrived this afternoon my first Dna shirt. Absolutely delighted with it as was my wife says it all I guess 1 Iknow Kai & and I believe Alan Sinclair among others  are big fans of these shirts not hard to see why. As for Claudio, he was so very helpful as indeed he was  when I purchased some knitwear from him last year.

    • Absolutely, Andy. Nothing like Claudios shirts if you consider cost and quality!
    • Very nice! Light pink? Been thinking about ordering a similar one from him.
