Second hand bargain: A colourful blazer

Only for the very very brave


What a week. RBS bankers are fleeing to the Maldives to escape the madness, while their bosses have been spotted stooping down to examine bins, seriously weighing up how disgusting it would be to eat half a sandwich with a banana skin on it. These are strange, curious, penniless times. Which is why we go out of our minds with joy whenever we hear about bargains. Today, our great pal Phil called up with an excellent story about a jacket. “I found a fantastic striped blazer in a charity shop,” he started, “it’s excellent, but if it was in a normal shop I probabaly wouldn’t buy it – too expensive, and too risky.” Having seen a picture of the thing, we know exactly what he’s saying – it’s a startling number, and only the most confident dresser could pull it off. So, come on big man, how much for this amazing technicolour dream coat? “A fiver!”

Fantastic sticking-it-to-the-recession!
