I almost always wear a minimum of a tweed jacker/blazer, leather soled shoes and a french cuffed shirts every day for anything more than cleaning. As it has been mild, but dry, I have also been wearing my covert coat a lot recently and this has attracted considerable (positive) comment it has to be said.

I too have been on a spending spree, having realised that I (for myself anyway) have bought very little in the last year (apart from a beautiful Ede & Ravenscroft jacket at Christmas with some moleskin trousers and matching waistcoat from Clarke & Dawe.) In the last few weeks, I have bought: 5 Lewin shirts in variety of patterns in their opening promotion here in Leicester 4 Dior silk hankies that I got for £5 each in Jethwa Tailors in Leicester, as he wanted rid...
I use Trumpers soap, shave at least 6 times per week and they last 6 months or more each. It's cheaper, hows that for an argument in the current climate! Get a brush on sale from a reputable stockist (search for the usual suspects) Personally I prefer my Taylors brush to my Trumpers, it didnt lose a single hair when new whereas the Trumpers model had me panicking for a while.
Cordovan. Looks like plastic, I threw mine in the bin (seriously) Lobbs. Look like a seventies pimp designed them. I've been to the factory a few times and I am not surprised they have a shop filled to the brim, quite who wants most of these things? Edward Green. Again, I have a pair, nice and all, but not worth twice the price of C&J handgrades. Lewin shirts, only moderately better than the dreadful Tyrwhitt, yet they seem to be the bargain shirt of choice...
Thanks. I have just found this thread and my suit specs are very similar to that sported by Bertie Wooster in the second pic:

I seem to be having no luck with the internet these days, so can anyone recommend a seller, preferably in the British Isles of quality Irish blackthorn sticks? My father uses one (was part of his uniform) and I would quite like one myself to assist in longer walks (Twice suffered a complete Achilles rupture, so have been taking it easy for a year or two) I am after the proper, knobbly cudgel headed type.

The price depends on postage cost and exchange rates, so is yet to be calculated, but I would imagine in the region of $15 to $20. It will take at least a week to post all the images etc as A. I'm recovering from illness and can't allow myself to take on too much, and B. there are a large number of designs available. This is merely a 'warning order', I will start a proper thread when I have all the details. I was trying to see if it was worth the extra effort to...
