Very nice find! I don't think its my best bargin but its my most recent one. I got a button down (three fingers), checkered shirt the colours are autumny colours like brown and reds and that, and its made of 75% silk and 25% cotton and I got it for......£1.75! from a charity shop, I was well chuffed! :)
Sounds great, have you any pics?
£1.75!!! Lucky bugger. Nice shirt that.
For me it has to be one I bought many moons ago when I managed to pick up an original 60s waffle knit Fred Perry polo from a local charity for a couple of quid.
In the early 80´s I traded in a few s*** records from my pre- mod time for about 6 or 7 original Kinks- and Motown 60´s 45´s. That non-mod mate of mine didn´t know what treasure he was giving away!
Paul Smith shower/golf jacket (£12). Classic design very 1950s/1960s look. From a small vintage shop near me in Sheffield. I have bought a few bits, mainly paisley scarves (£5). They only open on a Saturday for a few hours. Women who owns it must be 75 plus and dresses immaculately in 1940s clothes, complete with hair do. They always have Tootal dressing gowns for about £15; I am yet to buy. I don't know what the wife would say to me; poncing around the house in silk paisley!!!
Very nice indeed.
I've just bought a very fitted suit jacket and waistcoat by Lord John of Carnaby Street from a charity shop , shame there were no trousers, but at 8 quid worth a punt
