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!

  • These two absolute beauties arrived yesterday from Claudio, at Dna Groove. Over the moon with em both !!!!!!!

    • Yes, lovely shirts those Andy ;-)

    • Cheers  Al, Claudio pulled out all the stops to ensure especially the white one arrived in time for me to wear when  our grandson had his christening. 

    • I haven't got any DNA clothes -have seen images like these and others -and have heard others speaking highly of the detail and quality -how keen is the fit Andy ? I don't mind a slim cut (within reason ) -like AOL not very slim cut
    • Scott, I usually go for the xxl although i'm considered slim  Not sure if that helps much ? I weigh in at eleven stone. Absolutely agree with  all of Alan's comments !

    • Jesus Andy --laying off the rum I can get to 13-8 ---I'll be ordering SM --sail maker!!!
    • I`m 6 feet tall, 40 inch chest and 16 1/2 neck, I buy Lreg from Claudio and they fit lovely Scott, that should give you some idea of size ;-)

    • Bloody hell Alan, if I wear a tie I need a 17 1/2 collar. Nobody believes that till they check with a tape measure. I kid you not !

    • I am naturally a stick insect Andy, my missus`s wrists are bigger than my ankles, I used to box at 10 stone 5 pounds, being 6 feet tall. I found it difficult standing up straight in a strong wind, but as I got older I sort of naturally put on a couple of stones, plus I trained really hard for years, I hover around 12 stone these days, my wrists and ankles have stayed the same though....Ha-ha

    • Al, I'd imagine your wife will be over the moon re your comment about her wrists and your ankles ! Lol ! Harking back to AOL I do think their blazers appear both in cut and quality to be far superior to any others I've seen. I had a few blazers that I sold due to weight issues I previously mentioned. I do have a nice seersucker jacket but I will give thought to next year looking at the AOL blazers. though i'm not that keen on the red or purple  stripes.
