    Why not go to a HOF or John Lewis, they'll have Hobbs, Phase Eight, FWM, Jaeger etc etc.

    Yeah, JL is my usual go-to place for smart stuff. Will head there if Hobbs (Regent St) doesn't deliver. I was more looking for suggestions for brands-which-are-similar-to-Hobbs-and-might-have-decent-suity-stuff, for me to look out for.
    Hobbs and LK Bennett are the obvious suit-y places, aren't they? But I'm open to other suggestions.

    Have you looked at Toast? they have interesting suit type things quite often. Jigsaw do too.

    Oh cheers :) Will have a look at them! Haven't heard of them before.
    I do usually look at Jigsaw, but generally I find it's not quite cut for my body type - more for taller, willowy types I think ... :hmm:

    Just bought a new spring/summer mac online:

    http://www.cyclechic.co.uk/shop/water-ducks-back-black-p-505.html

    Looks a bit district nurse in the picture, but hoping it may look cool when it arrives. If it's not I'll send it back. Plus the flip round cycling day-glo is handy for me :) Quite expensive but then I only tend to buy new coats about every 2-3 years, and my last black mac is falling apart. My old one is a uniqlo one I bought 4 years ago which was marked down to £70 in the sale, but ended up being £10 when I got to the till, so I figure I can justify a bit more this time :D

    Hmmmm. The mac turned up and I'm sending it back :( They sent it to me a size to small, it's got no buttons at all which proved a nightmare just from walking to the station yesterday, and it also has loads of loose threads so the workmanship on it's not that great. Shame cos it was a decent weight and could have been really nice.

    I'm going to purchase this one instead once I get the refund:

    I just bought these. I was looking for brown ballet pumps but these were nicer. They're by Cydwoq and hand made.

    I'll probably make the grey piping red, with some leather dye and a degree of cunning.

    Ooooh, tres sexeh, such! :cool:

    I think I'm about to buy these, they're made for export to the UK and appear to go up to my size. Thing is my life is so boring I don't really need special shoes. :hmm:

    I went accessory shopping the other day, my absolute favourite kind of shopping :cool:
    I needed some red stuff to tie in my only comfy shoes with my party frock for the wedding today.
    So I have red rose hair clips, a red rose for my dress, a tacky bracelet (I like tacky bracelets :mad:) and a red heart pendant. Oooh and a red lipstick :D

    M&S also have a good line in macs usually.

    Thank you! The tights don't go past my hips :mad: Time to get the scissors out and make them into stockings. I think you should get the shoes so you will feel glamorous stomping around the house :cool:

    Actually, thinking about macs - how waterproof do you need it? Because the cyclechic one describes itself as waterproof, and anything you get from Hobbs or M&S or wherever is likely to just be showerproof.

    I have always been completely unimpressed by their stuff. Although to be fair I haven't seen it in the flesh.

    Actually now I look through I think I did get a dress from there once which went straight back (not flattering). Also they seem to have the same problem I see everywhere at the moment - nice dresses with really high necklines that I can't wear at all.
