Had some great buys over the years, but not necessarily from the Gold Label range, my best was a Daks 3/4 length black belted coat, £45 found it on the Daks website for £1300, but very rarely wear it.Good pick-ups @Yorky TK Maxx has had some real bargains lately in my area. I tried on a Portuguese-made PoloRL lightweight blazer down from £395 to £95. It should have fitted but suffered from that annoying PRL tendency to be tube-like and requiring gorilla arms to make it work well.
Italian-made Timberland and Anderson webbing belts for £20 (from £110) were another tempting prospect but the colours were highly suspect. I ended up just buying a Thomas Pink Italian leather belt in a dark blue / grey with a stamped fine pattern in the leather and a pair of PoloRL shorts for my coming hols. (pics to follow)
But your point about buying 'labels that I've never worn before' made me wonder if TK Maxx is a positive force or rarther one that can lead us away from the straight and narrow? I like your stuff very much having asked that question...
Fortunately we have several good stores York, Leeds, Harrogate, and my wife loves shopping as much as me.
I have about 20 Anderson woven belts from there some are difficult to match up but I'm a sucker for a bargain.
I think as long as the clothes are a classic style or an updated version you won't stray too far from our chosen path.
