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!

    • With not having a black shirt, in my collection, I spotted this semi cut away collar, double cuffed, extra slim fit, silk touch one, from Hawes and Curtis, who make a quality shirt. Purchase made easier, by a price tag of £19, brand new, with free delivery, I probably think this would make it on JP`s bargain buys thread............LOL.

    • Nice suit Alan !!

    • Cheers Andy :-)

    • Also decided to treat myself to a new mohair suit, well, I am worth it.....................Ha-ha-ha.

    • Very nice, Alan .... just looking at that suit takes me back a bit!

    • Ha-ha, thanks Graham, me too mate, I was due a new suit, i have a POW one a Black One, a Pinstripe one, so a nice change in Gold Mohair, also an excuse to buy more shirts and ties to match :-)

    • Very nice, Alan. Great colour. I really like AoL suits. Bought 4 last year. Only bought 1 mohair (black) though. Good quality and decent price. I like the cut of AoL, more suited to the slightly mature mod
    • My first decent suit was a Black Mohair one YM, it was in 1979 and was bought from a charity shop, probably in some 1960`s Mods wardrobe and handed in to the charity shop, in the seventies, when platform shoes and huge collars came in. Their loss, my gain, needed a little alteration and my sisters were machinists and suit makers in John Colliers, so it was sorted out for me, remember thinking I was the business at all the youth clubs where we were treated to a dazzling array of Northern soul, Ska and Mod revival stuff, great days mate :-)
