I'm willing to take reasonable offers on this one.
Pretty banging jumper this one - colour is oatmeal with flecks - The jumper is a thick knit and is lovely and warm in winter. It's a size medium, but as with thick wool jumpers there's a lot of give so I would say it could fit a large. The length from back centre top to bottom is approx 28", across the shoulders is approx 19", from arm pit to arm pit is approx 21" and the sleeve length from the armpit is approx 23". Only worn once by me - so pretty much new. Price is...

Gorgeous fair isle pattern jumper. This is by trendy Belgian brand Morrison, on their Howlin' label (see here for more info about the brand http://www.morrison.be/about-us). These jumpers are only sold in a few exclusive shops in the UK and it cost over £200. The jumper is a thick knit and is lovely and warm in winter. It's a size medium, but as with thick wool jumpers there's a lot of give so I would say it could easily fit a large as well. The length from back...

Does anyone have any experience with this lot: http://secretsales.com/home/ Cheap / discounted goods? They apparently source last seasons goods from suppliers and have limited run sales (usually 7 days). They seem legit - registered company / VAT number - although they have abysmal reviews online, some even saying they're flogging fake gear. Was wondering if anyone here has any experience?
To be honest, nobody really cares what you're degree's in; all the pep talk that teachers give you: 'university is a necessity' or, 'maths will teach you X Y & Z as a personal - read unquantifiable - skill' is mostly verbiage. That being said, if you're looking to get into actuarial work then maths will be a necessity and you should definitely do it.
People with maths degrees tend to gravitate towards actuarial / analytical work in finance; that's especially pronounced in insurance: the entry pay is amongst the highest but it tends to have a glass ceiling. If you want to be a broker I don't know why you're bothering with maths?
Hmm, I've bought mostly their higher end Rushdens (£180+) and found them to be top notch, especially when it's easy to get them for more than half that on ebay. Admittedly, I haven't gone for the lower priced shoes, like the Dylans (which look awful) so perhaps that's where people are drawing their conclusions.
I was just perusing the Grenson website and came across these that may be the much discussed 'G1': http://www.grenson.co.uk/en_gb/shop/acklam http://www.grenson.co.uk/en_gb/shop/egton They generally look quite nice. I don't really know why the new Grenson doesn't get a lot of love here: if you're a younger bloke then Grenson offer the best range of stylish shoes at affordable prices, and I'm not talking about RRP - it's very easy to pick up Grensons off of ebay, brand...
