For the lady in your life, a lovely vintage Drew & Sons handbag
This is absolutely amazing - it's a fairly conservative Chester Barrie double breasted suit, but it's made of a pure cashmere fabric - it's not soft and fluffy like you'd expect, but more like a regular worsted suiting with a really supple handle. Being a Chester Barrie there's some nice handwork (most notably the buttonholes) and is fully canvassed. It's a 6/2 double breasted, with twin pleated trousers with turnups.

Sold, thanks for looking I recently purchased these from eBay, but whilst they were advertised as an 11E, I'd assumed it was a UK 11E. They're actually 10.5/11E, so half a size too small for me.

I'll take the CT suit as long as shipping isn't a killer.

Bicester Village is amazing, and well worth the trip out of Oxford (there's a dedicated bus, and they open late in the evenings). Highlights include; A big Ralph Lauren with great RLPL stock at heavy discounts A Church's shoe shop One of only two Loro Piana factory shops in the world Smythson Gieves & Hawkes (I think this might have gone) Salvatore Ferragamo Hackett Most discounts are around the 50% level, but you can get 80-90% off if you shop carefully
