The Bargain Thread

There are some big discounts on Amazon for the rather elegant Skagen watches - a brand I'm a fan of.

This is the one I got, at a little more than half price. :)

I once went to Nandos with three friends, went to pay on my debit cCard and they got it wrong and charged me 35p instead of of £35. How they managed it I don't know but I didn't tell them.

Bargain.

I'm sure you can but I'm happy enough with that, I'm not really into trawling around until I find the absolutely cheapest.

I don't mean obscure places. I saw em on Schuh for £35 not long back.

But £45 is not bad I suppose. When did longboard last buy any? When Gola were the latest news? ;)

Bought a dinner jacket, dress shirt and trousers from Asda all for under £50. I know it's not the best quality but for something I'll wear once in a blue moon I think that is a bargain. I've always been a bit snobby about Asda clothes but they seemed to have some good stuff.

Nah, too modern for me. I remember when they were simply a item to wear for some sports. Dunlop green flash I can remember as being the latest thing. :)

Puma G Vilas. They were £60 back in 1984! I think I still have a pair of Puma Set from that time as well (similar money) so nearly 30 years on they must be a bargain

You weren't a football hooligan were you?

They were the ones who mainly spent that much on clobber back then.

In the style-starved early to late 1960's of the Gwent Valleys, daps were white canvas shoes with a shallow tread ... and had been used by generations of school kids before "trainers" entered either the common vocabulary or the common home. If your parents were rich, you got Dunlop Green Flash; otherwise you got them from the Co-op shoe shop.

The only alternative was a pair of bumpers ... black daps that were styled as a boot that went over the ankles. They weren't allowed for use in cross-country or athletics at our school. Gym lessons had to be done barefoot.

I got my first pair of trainers about 1970. Gola.

Sambas in bad weather as made of leather.

Gazelles in good weather as has a suede covering.

The only person I've ever seen running in Gazelles was Dave Starskey and he was much cooler than Ken Hutchinson.
