Photos to follow, but I picked up a lovely 1969 Dege bespoke suit in a vintage store today - 13/4oz grey pinstripe, single breasted with fishtail back trousers. More impressive is the fact it fits! (I'm 6ft 3in, 38in chest)
SOLD - THANKS FOR THE INTEREST
I have three leather weekend bags, and as one of them was purchased for me by my wife I have little to no chance of ever using this in anger.
Fantastic '72 hour' / long weekend Da Vinci bag by the Canadian label WANT Les Essentiels De La Vie in 'Burnt Henna' leather. 53cm x 33cm x 21cm. Handmade in Italy from top-quality leather. Has both carry-handles and a shoulder-strap.
Used on one trip, hence in excellent condition. Sorry for...

There's a shop called Wow Retro on Drury Lane, Covent Garden who have a selection at the back - up the stairs and on your right. If you're in the area, there's another retro shop called Rokit on Shelton Street, though they tend not to have much evening dress. Between the two is Blackout II in Endell Street who may be able to help.
I'll warn you none of them are quite at the focussed level of Old Hat, but the prices are commensurately lower.
Alternatively, have you...

Generally Jermyn St have a far better selection, but all the stores get some stock (there were some nice handgrades at the Royal Exchange store in the winter sale).
I'm afraid I don't have dates to hand, but it'll be between now and the end of the month in all likelihood.
Ditto - I walk around the house every 6 months and take date-stamped photos of each room and the contents which are then kept in the office. That way, I've got a relatively recent record. If a claim were to occur I'd probably not claim full retail for everything, but even at discounted prices it rapidly adds up...
I made a promise to myself a year or so ago - no more t-shirts. I gave them all to goodwill, and now I only wear shirts. That said, weekend wear is often jeans, shirt and a pair of Alden 990s. I'll wear something 'special' if I'm feeling feisty or out somewhere special though.
