My firm is doing a party with a 1920s dress code and I'm going as gangster. Does anyone know where I can find an authentic hat of reasonable quality in London for less than £30?
I live in the UK and I'm looking to buy a desktop computer, since my current computer (which I bought in 2004) is falling apart. My monitor and speakers are in a reasonable condition so I don't need to replace them. My criteria are: - Must be £500 or less - Good quality components, esp. a good cooling system - I don't have A/C in my study and its gets dusty at times. - Reasonable customer service - Up to date, since I enjoy playing computer games.

I'm still wearing my monogrammed contrast collar shirts but that's because I'm in a less market sensitive part of the financial sector.
Does anyone know of any shops in London that sell reasonably priced (i.e. less than £100 preferably less than £50) vintage clothing. I'm talking about men business suits and tweeds (i.e. 'Trad') clothing.
I'm using an infra-red sauna which doesn't have steam (and is 120-140F as opposed to 160-180F).
