John Smedley in massive jumper/cardigan sale

By Stefano on December 28th, 2012

If you have never visited John Smedley’s discount store right next to their factory in Derbyshire you really should. They have lots of end of line items, slight seconds and more at very very cheap prices.

If you live a million miles from Derbyshire and still want to grab one of their wonderful sea island cotton cardigans or extra fine merino wool jumpers then you need to become a member of the brand’s discount scheme.

Every few weeks they have a new sale and the one that is going on at the moment includes some classic styles. You’ll have to move quickly as they only have limited stock left, but there’s a selection of Sea Island Cotton cardigans for sale all at half price-ish £50 rather than £95. The brand is also offering a selection of roll neck jumpers down from £85 to £42.

At their main site a load of knitwear is in the sale. Merino Wool jumpers and cardigans are retailing for around £100 which is a third off their original retail price. I have had my eye on this for some time.

Every man should own at least one John Smedley jumper.

Fred Perry Winter sale kicks off

By Stefano on December 20th, 2012

Heritage brand Fred Perry has had a really good year courtesy of some high profile tie-ups.

If you fancy one of their polo shirts, or anything else for that matter, now is a very good time as the company has just started its winter sale.

Pictured is the £45 (down from £55) Slim Fit Twin Tipped Fred Perry Shirt, which has the company’s trademark twin tipping which runs across a slightly smaller collar and each cuff. It is also a slimmer fit and available in a variety of colours.

There are also stripey polo shirts, long sleeve polo shirts, check shirts T shirts and this rather striking £94.95 Fairisle lambswool jumper. Most are discounted by around 10-25%.

Sale pick – Nanny State Canvas slip on brogues

By admin on July 8th, 2008

nannystatecanvas.jpgI’m for all the idea of wearing shoes without socks, but the reality can be painful. These canvas Nanny State brogues are a great compromise, doing what Nanny State do best and mixing smart and casual. As Will suggested, canvas brogues are best if you’re looking to pull off the short suits look. On top of all this, they only cost £14.99.

Sale pick: J. Lindeberg jeans

By admin on July 1st, 2008

jljeans.jpgNow that the sales are in full swing, it’s time to start picking out the true bargains. House of Fraser is usually too chav-tastic for me, but these J. Lindeberg jeans are a steal at £50. The simple design and dark wash make this a wardrobe staple instead of a regretful sales purchase, so you won’t have to worry about whether you’ll still like it in six months.

Something you should know is that J.Lindeberg run their clothing in indie sizes (i.e a size smaller than they are). So although these are labelled as straight leg, they fit like slim jeans.

Liberty sale starts… yesterday

By admin on June 20th, 2008

liberty_sale.gifOK, so we’re a bit slow bringing you this info but *searches frantically for positive angle* that just means you miss the opening day rush, right? Plus it’s Friday. One is in a more shoppy mood on a Friday, I find.

So, yes – the Liberty spring/summer sale is now on, with up to 50% off selected items.

The Liberty website
mentions Marc Jacobs, Marni and Lanvin at reduced yet still reassuringly expensive prices. Rather annoyingly you can’t buy anything in the sale from the site itself, so it looks like a trip to one of their London stores may be in order.

At this point non-Londoners are quite welcome to curse me for bringing them news that is quite worthless to them.

[Thanks to Fancy Dan for the heads-up]

January Sale piece: Nerve’s brown coat

By admin on January 7th, 2008

Nervebrownjacket
What’s the word most associated with the
phrase ‘January sales’? Is it ‘great bargains’ or ‘horrible panic buy made just
to get out of the shop with something’? For most, it’s the latter. Bright lights and awful music can make for
some terrible shopping decisions. So why not take some time out, turn your
lights down low, put on whatever music you like and take a seat. Although you
should have been sitting down already, unless you use a PC standing up. And
that’s just bizarre.
