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!

  • Has anyone bought Sta Press from Warrior Clothing? Just ordered the Light Blue pair, hoping they are better quality than Relco! Have only bought a shirt from Warrior before.

    • Don't think you'll have any issue with them Steve -better than Relco -every bit as good -if not better than JTG
    • Thanks Scott...Nice1 

  • Arrived a couple of days ago from John Smedley store Henley tee complete with 40% reduction = free pp 1 Excellent !!

    • Quite like that Andy, sky blue??

    • Cheers Al, Yeap  sky blue and a tiny tad deeper in colour then the photograph suggests. Very pleased  with it !

  • I don't normally post about my purchases on this thread, but I bought a couple of great Breton tops in the Armor Lux sale today. If you like your Bretons, or looking for a slightly different Peacoat or Smock, have a look. I got around 40% off my purchases:-)
  • Hi folks, 
    I'm seriously contemplating getting a cut throat razor. German, French or Japanese with all the gubbins, strop, brush, soap etc.
    I believe I have at least 20 years (god willing) with an outside chance of another 50 years (with medical science) of shaving left in me. Looking into the fiscal studies along with the quality of a damn good shave, I've come up with the cut throat as the sensible investment for the future. Do I dive straight in and get a top o' the range swashbuckler style and risk shortening my life expectancy, perhaps scaring my face for life (though I've always fancied a swordsman nick on the cheek) or go for a novice pretender style while I get the hang of it? Any experienced expert advice will be gladly and very much appreciated. Though not being an ageist and knowing that age is no indication of ability, I must still stress that advice from the over 30's will be taken a little more seriously (unless you are a bone fide qualified wet shave barber of course) than those below that age. Kindest regards, Gary D'

    • This is how i shave everyday Gary. Its takes steady hands and patience to get  used to. You will nick yourself at first but hang in there, the results are are superb and you'll save loads on disposable plastic rrubbish. I use a Japanese Company called Feather for razor and blades. All soaps and oils from Trumpers. Top tip, prepare your face before you start.  Oil your bristles then apply a hot towel, warm your shaving cream and take your time.  I finish wish a fridge cold towel to close the pores. Sounds like a big faff but its a 10 minute job when you get your eye in. I'll post a picture of my kit later ;-) 

    • Topman Harry. Thank you very much for the advice and tips, much appreciated and a skill I will endeavour to master my friend. Steadiness and patience are traits I'm familiar with and as for the odd nick or three, the scar tissue around my eyes are testament to previous experience of blood loss ;0)

      I'm doing my homework on choice with the Japanese Feather brand coming up on many occasions along with the German, Duvo Straight Razor... Exciting stuff, that will give an interesting, satisfying feeling to an everyday experience. I look forward to seeing your accoutrements in due course, cheers dude.
