Topic: Charity shop gold

Had a Toby around Ilkley yesterday.  Got a lightweight blue linen M&S  Sartorial suit, rarely if ever worn for £20 and some very solid Alfred Sargent desert boots for a tenner.  Popped into Mountain Warehouse next door and all the base ware was down from £19.99 to £2.99.  Happy days.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

Somebody's wedding suit that.

He’s walked back to his youth and hymned the young man he was with knowing affection, despite the rain of bitter knowledge manhood has inevitably brought him.

Maybe so.  It's  very nice.  Suspect they might have split up if it's gone to the British Heart Foundation. 

I love chariddy grayte maytes.

Maybe the consummation killed him?

Maybe, but I suspect he wasn't wearing the suit at the time so happy days.

Splendid.  I've been looking for something similar with no luck.

Saw a Ralph Lauren 50's style tank top.  Really wanted it but couldn't see me being able to wear it ever.

Re: Charity shop gold

It was a dress agency and a relatively new coat.

However! I was in Thorne watching the youth play football, forgot to take my hat so nipped off to the Heart Foundation shop and bought a hat that was defo from an old blokes wardrobe. Still had some grey hairs in it. Couldnt bring myself to wear it. Went straight in the bin when home.

Thorne! I hope none of you ever have to go.. Grim place.

Washing machines and dry cleaners exist.  Your toffs have been passing down clothes for generations.

Laughing like fuck at that.  You being from Leeds, I thought you'd missed the r off Thorner.

Re: Charity shop gold

99% of the time I have a mooch in charity shops these days I am disappointed but still go in the ones near my work on the off chance. Got some Clarks Ramblers (pasties) yesterday for a tenner. Mint condition, I don't think they have been worn as the sole is pristine. Bob on for work. I was mildly pleased.

Re: Charity shop gold

Just acquired some blue SL72's from shelter in Morley for 7.99.  Rolling at around £45 for these type on eBay.  No wear on the sole, no discolouration on the suede or inside.  Still has perfect sticker on the innersole.

Good work

I tend to use eBay for shoes but never really get such good deals

Always feel a bit odd thinking I'm probably walking around in "dead man's shoes" but I soon forget that  smile

You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence is not an event - it is a habit.

I never buy shoes that have any real signs of being lived or indeed died in.  I can't bring myself to pay full whack for the likes of Barkers (my faves) so I just keep my eyes peeled.

PickeD up 85 7" singles.from 58 to 62 in Wetherby 2.weeks ago.  Bunged them all on Discogs and already made my money back with two sales.

Re: Charity shop gold

My docs in my avatar were from a charidee shop in Redditch a good few years ago now - 20 shitters and easily my most favourite pair of shoes.

I picked up a Plectrum by Ben Sherman chore jacket a few weeks from a shop in Cradley Heath for 3 ploppers.  I've barely taken it off since - I look totes amaze in it.  Obvs.

Aim Low and miss...
