Just got this, and one in white and a pink shirt. Got a tan pea coat thing in the sale too. Really impressed with these for a tenner.

I love eBay sellers that end their listings in the middle of the night when there's very few other snipers awake bidding on things
One pair of blue Dockers chinos, 99p
One All Saints 'Otto' overcoat, £16.77
One Ted Baker checked shirt, 99p
One Ted Baker scarf, 99p
(all + P&P sadly...)
More incoming too
Edit: Add an All Saints Foreman blazer, £18.37, to that list. Can't wait for that one to arrive! Skint now, had an expensive dental and opticians bill today. No more eBaying for me for the next few weeks.

This is a thread devoted to latest purchases and empty wallets.
Post links and photos if possible.
Yesterday, I went on a splurge and ended up buying the following:

Love the shirt. That's definitely going on my 'to buy' list! Maybe the jumper too, depends how much it is.
EDIT: Actually, taking a closer look at Zara I think I could pretty much buy my entire summer wardrobe there. So much nice stuff! Just been browsing through the rest of their site (only looked at jackets recently) and I'm like 'I want that. Ooh, and that. That's pretty cool too!'

Yeah, Zara pulled a blinder this season. Some cracking stuff, and very much informed by recent catwalk shows - sometimes almost plagiarism, but I'm not complaining! I honestly considered buying the trousers in that print too :') I wouldn't wear them together of course.
The jumper was £95, from Mr Porter. I went to the shops, got home and ordered the stuff I couldn't find. So I don't actually know that it fits yet - here's hoping.
Also turns out it's 25% synthetics. Not very impressive - but I guess it could be worse. I can live with that.

I'll pass on the jumper then.
Zara is a weird one for me. I always thought it was tat (same goes for H&M, same reasons) because the only one of their stores I've ever been in is the Bullring one, and it's always a mess. The store itself isn't very nice, too glossy white and badly laid out, there's portable clothes rails everywhere, clothing strewn everywhere and every time I'm in there the staff seem to be having a natter rather than sorting it out. It gave me the impression that it was an expensive Primark wannabe rather than the challenger to Topman's crown. I'm only just starting to come around to the idea that it might be worth shopping there (again, same goes for H&M).
Interestingly, I was in Selfridges the other day looking at the Ted Baker gear when I spotted a blazer that looked really nice. Then a jumper. Then a shirt. Then I realised I was in the Primark section. Just goes to show how much difference a strong display can make, I wouldn't give Primark a second look normally. The stuff was pretty crap on closer inspection, but because of the surroundings, how it was displayed and the fact that it was tidy (i.e. the complete opposite of a Primark store) it looked a lot more expensive than it was on first glance,

Pretty cool shirt Sam.... I think I will pop in Zara in the near future to try a few bits on.
