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!

    • Thanks Gary, I'd say 10 shaves per blade at maximum efficiency, then you start to lose some edge. Having said that theyre good for say 5 more. The only caveat would be the courseness of individual bristles.The blades are available online, I use ebay. I've thought about a classic straight razor and strop, I might actually give it a try.
    • Cheers, very useful info Harry. My bristles are a proper 'Desperate Dan' stylee. 2/3 good shaves with a Gillette, 5 if it's every day.

      You are well ahead when it comes to the cut throat experience... Have at it my good man ;0). The German Dovo razor is the leading contender for me at the moment.

      100 shaves with a cut throat before I can call myself a professional or so they say. I just hope I don't lose too much blood in the meantime... Anything over a thimble full and I'll start to panic! Ha, ha 

  • 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'
