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!

    • For me Edward it looks like another high st BD to be honest. I am not sure what the cloth quality is like or the cost of the shirt but imho it seems to lack the detail we should be looking for. Collar looks too weedy, is there a stitched in back pleat,collar loop, rear darts for a good fit? For £50/60 you can get a decent shirt from AoL or JTG that will have all these details that will take a shirt and make it so much better than the mass produced high st (not saying CT shirts mass produced but you should get my meaning). I am not trying to be critical, I don't know your budget or how much a CT shirt is, but for me its detail. Not sure this has it...
    • Never liked back pleats ruins the lines, and if the shirt is the right fit theres no need for them either.

    • Absolutely agree  Mark !

    • Don't like these shirts that on the inside of the collar have a different pattern than the collar itself.
    • Dna for me Kai,  !!!!!!!!!!

    • Most often,yes, Andy. Currently getting one made by Charles Caine.
    • I'll look forward to seeing the shirt on here Kai !

    • Charles Tyrwhitt are much underated in my opinion, great quality and the only place that I have found White Button Down Shirts in a Poplin weave rather than the Oxford Weave that you can get everywhere else ... great workshirts

    • I concur, Charles Tyrwhitt is one of my favorite places to shop for shirts. The quality is always very high and the choices of weaves, Oxford, Honeycomb, Twill etc.. are very nice. 

    • I've found them to be cheaply made budget shirts that are similar to Savile Row Shirts. They are as thin as paper, one or two washes and they are never the same shirt.
