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 - won't take it to Linz, if I am going.


    • Except if Martin makes it to Linz next year! ;-)

    • Nice one, Martin. A long sleeve, I assume!?

    • Thanks, Kai. Yes, it is a long sleeve.


  • Nice cashmere & lambs wool, Ivy League style jacket, made in Italy for Bullok & Jones of San Francisco.  Some nice details; cool lining, patch and side pockets combined, diagonal buttonholes at top and bottom of zip placket. Purchased for the princely sum of $14.99 (see label) at the Goodwill thrift store on Haight Street (as in Haight-Ashbury). 


    Never heard of this brand before (I’m sure that’s just me) but a quick gander at their website has my basket total at $776.95 in casual shirts alone (they ain’t cheap).  It’s more of a wish list than anything! ;o)

    Continued down Haight to Amobea Records - the world’s largest independent record store, where I purchased this set  


    Along with the sun shining, a drive down Taylor Street (the steep hill in the Bullit car chase) a look at the Painted Ladies and a “legal in California” purchase, all made for a splendid introduction to the city of San Francisco.

    • Steve, sounds like your having the time of your life. I just spotified that LP but only the title track is up. Very apt for the street you're on. That jacket is like a cloth A1, I can see your baggage allowance taking a kicking! Lucky man.

    • It was a blast Mike,although coming back to my brother’s place in Calgary and a foot of snow has dented the California Dreamin’.  I’ve already started to look for a second suitcase! LOL

  • I'm so impressed with the beckett siminon brand that I went ahead and bought a pair of the German army trainers. GAT's for short. Way higher end than simply getting a pair of adidas sambas. These are made by hand with high end materials.  However I have to wait 3 months to get them. They arive in September. I guess just in time for my B-day. Cheers.


  • I bought a pair of Beckett Simonon loafers. However since they're made by hand and made to order, I won't get them until mid August.


    • Nice, Sir!
