Some shorts for when summer arrives:
£19 from Uniqlo. Not bought anything from them before and am impressed with the aulity for that price!
I also managed to nab a H&M chambray shirt on eBay for 99p!
Just bought me a postal messenger bag. I really wanted the J. Crew but it was too expensive for me, so I found this other maker and got one for alot less.
got it here Voodoo Postal Messenger Bag
Took delivery of my new Loake Cannons today. had a massive Man crisis. Colour is so rich and the shape is fantastic. Still only found one place that sells them as well so sure to be quite rare!
I will try and get some photos of them in person.
I usually wear darker trainers from somewhere like Zara but thought a lighter leather pair was needed for summer (also lighter blue jeans look a bit silly with dark trainers). Didn't want all-plain white but also wanted something neutral enough to wear with most things so boom- beige.
So... I went in to Primark y/day with my girlfriend... She had to return something... Turns out there is some OK stuff in there. I got a striped jumper - complete rip off of current All Saints style - for £7. And wait for it... It's 100% cotton!
Here's the jumper:
Also got a really nice blue oxford button-down for £10, and some light wash skinny jeans, also for £10, that fit PERFECTLY! Got a couple of wifebeaters at £4 a pop too.
There really are some ok bits in there. The oxford shirts are particularly good, you'd never guess it was a cheap shirt. Unfortunately they had no white ones left in a small, of I would have bought as many as I could get my hands on!
Anyone else shopped there?
Here's a link to their lookbook, which again is pretty good! Menswear products
You're in good company Pins... Frankie Cocozza buys his skinny jeans there. :P
I actually bought a really nice navy cable knit jumper in there the other week - £12. I was really looking for one, tried House of Fraser, Reiss, TK Maxx, M&S, GAP, a few others I can't recall, and the Primark one was by far the best and by far the cheapest. Dead chuffed, I've had loads of compliments on it since (obvs not mentioned where I got it though).

I can only guess they actually expect people to wear them halfway down their arses.
I've found that Primark's shirts and knitwear are often made of cotton, especially if you stick to the higher priced items at a few quid extra. As for jackets and shoes I usually find their variety and quality a bit poor, but all-in-all I'm not ashamed to say I've bought things at Primark if anyone actually asks.
I got the ultra-slim M&S blue suit today, an excellent buy at £129 for 98% wool.
I also got the All Saints Mitre shorts in Ink. They're nice and slim fitting and smart enough to dress up with a belt and wear with a shirt and my new Bass loafers.
Just kidding, it's these...
Also found a very nice Oxblood belt in Cos but I want to wear my loafers and check the colour match. This was it.
