Also a bit worried how low on the scale most of my budgets were...

I'll see how the first few emails go. Went shopping at the weekend and going to a shopping centre was just awful, just wanted some basic coloured t-shirts and shops were either too busy or had different variations on t-shirts like longline, tight fit, v neck etc. I just wanted a normal fitting crew neck t-shirt for goodness sake.


I didn't supply my picture. I also could see no reason why they'd need that! I didn't really believe the stuff about you having a stylist, so I just ignored it. I've still been getting some good recommendations.

I think I went quite low on most of the budget scales, too, they seem to have a lot of sale stuff from different brands - those trainers I've got were £40 down from £70, for example.

It's excellent, and a very good idea. The premise is that you spend ten minutes putting in what clothes (ie basic staple items) you've already got, your size, what you like to wear, and what you're looking for, and it sends weekly recommendations to you.

They talk about you having your own 'sylist', but that's just marketing bollocks. Their emails are excellent, though - lots of tips on how to wear items, what things go with what other things, etc. I've just bought my first two things from them, a striped Reiss t-shirt and a pair of leather Converse. Not arrived yet, so will see how long that takes.

I consider myself to be reasonably fashion conscious, without being a victim, and it's proving to be really useful.


i signed up to it ages ago, and completely ignore it because i am a slob :lol:

I've had a look, they're a bit hit or miss for me though.

I think they're pretty poor, to be honest. Everything they recommend seems really basic (presumably because it's an easy way of making sure it'll most likely look good), and some of the stories they post :dread: "HOW TO WEAR ONE SWEATSHIRT FOUR WAYS" (with smart trousers, chinos, jeans, or shorts. Well I never!)

In fairness as someone who has only the most basic grasp on fashion it's quite nice to read about ways to wear clothes, what goes with what etc.

Just gave it a whirl - ordered a sweater, a shirt, and a polo shirt.

I strawberry floating hate actually going shopping and consequently most of my clothes are like 5+ years old :slol: Will probably order a few more bits and pieces if the stuff is any use.

Seems ok so far, I know what some mean by being it a bit basic, playing it safe from their side i guess.

Nice that they give you a £10 voucher so i'll use that, and they do suggest some sites/shops i wouldn't normally consider so nice to see some more options.

Went to the Goyard boutique in Mayfair, London on Saturday. Was very tempted to buy a card holder but didn't in the end.
Think I will buy it when I go in a few weeks time.
Makes sense as a wallet is quite bulky and I only ever use like 1-2 bank cards and a few notes so this would be ideal.

£195

Here's a unboxing review I found on youtube

I don't know, seems a bit cheap for something that big and that's always going to be on display.

N1FFFFFF - have you considered a bellroy wallet? I've got one and it's very similar to that video you posted, only they're about £60.

I love mine, totally changed the way I view wallets (and by extension, my entire life).

This is mine

Thanks that looks great. Their other products look good too and very clever. seems like top quality too as it comes with a 3 year warranty.
I will look into buying something from them. Btw where did you hear about this brand?

I am still hoping to buy a Goyard card holder though as I would really like a piece of this French luxury, the company is even a year older than Louis Vuitton.

Lol my cousin bought a wallet from Goyard over the weekend when I introduced him to the brand. £600!! I couldn't justify a small wallet for that price though so will settle on the card holder which is really nice.

For some reason a few days ago I actually watched that unboxing video. Was not time well spent.

Was in London over the weekend and just couldn't resist. Went into the massive Burberry store on Regent St and got myself one of their classic cashmere scarfs/scarves. Probably not the best time to buy one with it getting warmer but will be making good use of it in the years to come.
I went for the classic camel colour because I already have a grey one which I got many years ago at an outlet.

Also ended up getting a new hoodie for the gym in the sale from Lululemon. Saw this brand in LA not long ago and never heard of it before. So was surprised to see they have stores all over London. On that note I should also mention that I saw Bill Nighy in Starbucks just off Regent St towards Saville Row.
