    These Loake Princeton loafers arrived for me today:


    Just over 30 on eBay, boxed and still got that new smell. Look like they have only been worn indoors. Would have been 110 new.
    Very nice. Do you set up some kind of notification system or alerts on eBay to spot these?

    What's the sizing like on those Mango Blazers? I also have my eye on the Herringbone one, but there's only Large left.

    I'm floating between Medium and Large at the minute, so I figure it'd be best to check.

    Gonna be honest, I don't know... I'm a 37" chest so a S/M and ordered S on the basis that their sized blazers only go down to 38". Haven't received any yet so no idea if I've got it right or not!

    I bought an unstructured one recently and medium fits me, I'm a 38/39" chest but I also have broad shoulders. I found that Mango came up small on my last order, so I ordered medium and large, medium was spot on fit for me.

    @Texbook - yeah saved searches, email notification when stuff with saved search comes on. So I basically get an email when any Loake,Grenson etc shoes come on in my size.

    Just picked up these camo Chukka boots from the All Saints outlet for 21.80 down from 95. The feedback I received previously was to be more adventurous. What do you think about these as a statement item to go with my standard black jeans, Oxford shirts and knitted jumpers?

    I say go for it! Black is also the colour I'd opt for to wear these with.

    I picked up some more bargains including an incredible fluke pair of monk shoes.

    Basically I have been spending ages looking for double monks, then single monks, first tan leather then dark brown suede. I found some I wanted to buy at Herring at 110 but they were out of stock, then I tried to order some dark brown double monks from meermin at €160 but their website was busted. I was in Reiss in Guildford today and they had a rogue 2 seasons old pair of all the combinations combined (tan, suede and double monk) hidden at the bottom shelf for sale, in my size for 43!!! When I paid at the till they came up at 87, so they were mislabelled, but they gave them to me for 43 anyway! Reduced from approx 180.

    Also got 2 reiss pocket squares reduced from 20 to 6, and a tie reduced from 49 to 19. So lots of bargains today! All this for 74!

    Thanks mate. Do you think bright knits such as red or light blue would be too strong to go with statement shoes like these? Thinking black jeans with a black jumper with some muted silver/grey detail - this https://www.mrporter.com/product/371628 or my all grey Margiela would be the best bet? Not sure if something bright would be too much?

    BTW I LOVE those monks you picked up. Been looking at that style or a while but my wardrobe isn't as evolved as yours yet so haven't got round to buying investment pieces in specialist styles and haven't found bargains as great as them in that style. Will have to make my way to the Reiss in Cheltenham soon as see if they have some steals like what you found.
