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!

    • You can still buy a special soft copper wire brush to clean them with, I think Tony ..... Iv'e never cleaned mine, but that's how Hush Puppies were cleaned back in the day.

    • You're gonna have to be very careful or very fortunate Tony ! But good luck nevertheless !

    • Cheers Andy and Alan. In hindsight they were a daft buy but i couldn't resist.
  • I just bought a beautiful pair of pretty green desert boots,bone, beautiful. What do you guys think about pretty green?
    • I especially t like their t-shirts and some knitwear. I bought a superb overcoat from Pg a few years ago. Their dessies look good but at £85 that's  stronging   it a bit !

    • Aye but they are beautiful. Not that well finished i must say as not lined just the skin of the shoe
  • A new bespoke shirt by Mary Frittolini. Mary trained in Italy before moving to Paris where she was a shirt maker for Lanvin before setting up on her own. Unlike British shirt makers, in France and Italy a lot of the details are still done by hand. Shirt is in the post at the moment, can't wait to get it. BD collar in pink Thomas Mason popline with button holes/buttons by hand, shirred sleeveheads attached by hand and also the shoulders seams done by hand. Doesn't serve any purpose, just looks nice.

    Heres a picture of it in construction, you can see the shoulder seam detail.Collar shaped for a generous roll.

    • This is looking to be a beautiful piece of work. I hope you will post the final result Mr Boas. I'd love to see it completed.

    • Very classy, Harryboy. Can't say Iv'e ever had a shirt made to measure, but you are whetting my appetite, since there is a tailor here who gets shirts custom made in New York by Italian shirtmakers. Maybe for the holidays......

    • Looking good ! Hope to see the end product !
