The Society of Cool!
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!
nice find andy sounds the business
Got my copy of the A to Z of Mod today, too. I didn´t expect it to be so small!
I receives yesterday my order from "in with the in crowd" - a hopkirk jacket with 3/4 length sleeves and hopkirk A-line dress - I'm not happy. Very cheap material and bad fitting (but nice service). Regarding the material, the fitting and the price it makes more sense to go to a tailor... Does anyone have experiences with "in with the in crowd"?
No expirience yet, but good to know it´s not that satisfying, as I´ve been thinking about their burgundy polka dot shirt for ages. Maybe better leave it then. I think we once had a discussion thread about IWTIC here.
That is gorgeous, Andy :)
I've been after a decent one for ages. First time I've seen one with 3 buttons, ticket pocket AND side vents! The usual RL ones have patch pockets, which are fine, but this is like an Ivy League jacket designed by a Mod! Fits like a glove too.
I dunno man, how does it fit on you? This jacket would only look cool if it was tight and slim fit, does it bag over the wrists?
As I said, perfect fit & cool as f... in my opinion.
The fact you're not sure about it Christian makes it even better - any attention is good attention!
A pair of tan well sort of burgundy 'Bostonian' brougues from vintage shop in Brighton,first class nick,so well polished i can check me boat in them,a steal at £35
Nice one. It doesn't help that i'm not corduroy's biggest fan and yeah man, power to ya!
