On a different note.

My fiance is currently in England for Christmas visiting her sister's fiance's family. They live in Tablow just outside of England and today they went into town for some shopping. She sent me just a few photos but said how sad she was I couldn't be there to shop with her, haha. Luckily I'll be there in July for her sister's wedding so she is giving me a little sneak peak of what to expect, figured you guys might enjoy some of the pics.




Trying to figure out what store this is. She can't recall the name (other than what is seen on the window) but they offered custom blazer with a large array of buttons, patches, ties, etc to go along with it. I am looking for one "souvenir" item for the trip and just from what she was telling me a jacket from here might be an idea.




Another thought would be some custom Crockett & Jones Alberts




Harrods, hard to fathom the size


I took a 6 hour trip (my first) into London a couple days ago on a layover and hit up Trickers. Got a pair of Stow boots on serious discount. Definitely check them out. T&A, Dunhill, Edward Green, all the Savile Row spots, etc. are all within about a 15 minute walk of one another and the Piccadilly Circus stop. So cool!

Not thriftrelated but thought some of you would enjoy, my mother gave me this knife today, a family heirloom so to speak. Handmade sami knife from the northern parts of Sweden where my family comes from. Old, in superb condition and extremely well made, Im very happy.
