Sutor: Lobb: Stone Island:
Papworth briefcase is back with a reasonable BIN; it looks a but ragged around the edges but it might just need some TLC. Groom yourself (or someone else) with these Whitehouse Cox brushes. These gold cufflinks are BIN for about the underlying gold price. Stunning Dunhill triple-date El Primero based watch. Seller will take £1200 which is a steal, but I just can't justify that much.

I'd agree, TK Maxx can yield some decent deals - I've pretty much stopped going but in the past managed to buy: - Bamford & Sons trousers and cashmere sweaters for £29.99 - Ballantyne hand intarsia cashmere sweaters for £64.99 - Bamford & Sons suede jacket for £99 - Lots of Pantherella socks from £1 upward - A pair of Le Chameau boots for £79.99 - Some Barbour jackets for £69.99 - A couple of pairs of Yanko black brogues for £74.99 (actually really nicely...
Kop for your better half - $4100 NWT Asprey cashmere coat for $100 BIN.
Good pickings this morning, photos to follow: Sutor Mantellassi top-line (blue sole, toe nails) dark brown medallion wholecuts, with the SM lightweight shoe trees. John Lobb mid brown laced deck shoes. Stone Island orange ventile hooded jacket.
