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!

  • DNA Groove again. Can't imagine wearing any other shirts at the moment, with the exception of Adam.

    • Lovely Kai, DNA shirts are great, just a pity they never fit me. 

    • Looks great Kai

    • Yes, I like that Kai, I`m just about to send in an order, a sort of semi bespoke one :-)

    • On the subject of Adam shirts Kai, I have about four of theirs, but I feel that they need to upgrade the material, as mentioned before, the style is fine, but cloth is frustrating to say the least, an example of my discontent was today when I took my Purple Adam button down out of the wardrobe, which went in crisply ironed, only to find that it looked like the dog had slept on it, then I noticed that after only three washes, it had faded badly and there was little bubbles in the cotton on one side of the collar, that won`t come out. I think that they should make the same style shirts in a non or minimum iron material, Claudio`s shirts, on the other hand are exceptional and I have no problems with them at all, beautiful material. Though I must say Adam`s suits are very good and I am pleased with mine :-)

    • That is one hell of a collar
    • Thanks gents; 100% with you, Alan, and my wife, who does the ironing, even more so! ;-)

    • You let your wife iron your clothes ????!!!!!! You must have a very trusting relationship, Kai - I envy you , lol!

    • Yes, I bet her heart sinks, when she see`s an ironing basket full of your Adam shirts Kai............Ha-ha-ha.

  • New jacket arrived today, made by "Modshopping" to my measurements, and it turned out a perfect fit.. Navy with a subtle herringbone structure (sorry, bit crumpled; just unpacked...). Bit of a stupid name, but a fine company never the less!
