More FP long sleeved shirts spotted in TK Maxx (around 35 sovs).

Also some RL seersucker shirts long and short sleeves,  for those who like a touch of seersucker and open neck. .

I'd prefer a GS scooter, if you could tell me which TK Maxx are selling those cheap  ;D.

Do you still have your hair cut neat ? It is my local TKMaxx this time Chilster , they nearly always have RL shirts in stock but not the seersucker variety that some of us yearn for. .l imagine the FP shirts will be available all over the land , l don't think there are any Proud Boys down your way . .

Well, the little bit I've got left gets a regular trim 😁. 

You seem to have more luck than me when visiting TK Maxx, especially over the last few years.  I've acquired a few really nice Smedley polo's over the years, both long and short sleeved, and have also picked up numerous pairs of Pantherella socks, but both of these dried up a few years ago and I can't remember the last time I saw anything nearly as nice in one of their shops.

I have picked up a few nice pieces from their online shop, especially footwear during the first lockdown last year strangely enough, but you've usually got to be quick to spot them.

I have had Loake , Barker , Weejuns and even some lovely Paul Smith boots . However,  that was over a period of time , years . Recently,  the shoes have been disappointing but it is a bit of a lucky dip . If you see a Smedley , Gant , Brooke's Bros , Baracuta or a decent RL and you like it , I'd grab it . Ted Baker is another brand that appears from time to time , l have had some cracking trousers and shoes from them . Also , this time of year there is usually some great Italian knitwear in merino,  l even got a 100% cashmere sweater for under 30sovs once !!
I reckon regular visits at quiet times will produce gems because l reckon the decent stuff moves  fast but l have gone in plenty times and came out empty handed as much of the stuff is horrid.  .

I got two pair of Weejuns last year and, of course, the old staple Clarks Desert Boots appear quite regularly, I just think that as the number of stores has increased over the years, the pickings in store have become much slimmer.  As you say though, you have to be prepared to go in a few times and come out empty handed, because you might just drop on lucky on one of those occasions.

I reckon I have  been going into TK Maxxx for around 20 yrs , even had debates with colleges in  the past re- the best store but in all those years l have never seen any Clarke's Originals,  so my friend,  you are certainly more fortunate  in that respect . .
Certainly gems to be had.

Does look good on you . I had my military spec p-coat on yesterday and by the time we got out of the restaurant,  l was certainly needing it as it was hovering around 0c.  .
I it get on the length of over coats too , l had about 3 inches cut off the length of my Crombie a couple of years ago , sits a bit better now.
