Re: Charity shop gold

I buy mainly off ebay now, but have spent many happy hours in posh market towns snaffling top end gear i years gone by.  Problem is that old stuff now is 70, 80s which as we all know is stylistically shite. Copped a few demob suits  built like tanks, and some made 2 measures, circa late 60s. alos used to go to MCR and copped some nice gear.

Re: Charity shop gold

Don't bother as such but was very tempted by a mint Boss jacket in the window of a charity shop in Ilkley whilst on the lash yesterday afternoon.
Didn't want to put a dent in my beer tokens so passed up the opportunity.

Way I felt this morning, wish I'd bought the fucker!

Re: Charity shop gold

On a bike ride today & stopped in a place in Worcestershire called Upton on Severn. Not far from Malvern. Lovely place off the beaten track, but as I cycled past the charity shops seemed rammed full of rambling / country attire. As I was on the push iron I could not get owt, but well worth remembering next time I am up that way again.

I think John Dee used to cavort about there a few hundred years ago, Queen Elizabeth's magician / magus bloke.

Re: Charity shop gold

Up in  Wiltshire this morning, so as i was driving past Malmesbury so decided to have a look.

Straight in the cancer shop & had a browse through the cd's. Fuck all there. Anyway saw aload of old long coats that i thought were womens. Right at the back there was a grey / black echo & the bunnymen coat , in mint condition. The label says burtons but made in scotland, an old label. I reckon a lord or something owned it?

Anyway for 20squid i bought it. It will be going to the dry cleaners, so if you see a bloke down south east wales / west of england looking like mcculloch, it will be me.
