  • Shop the sale rails in store. You can shop by price here. Sometimes they are separated by size
  • Shop online. I go to the sale section and filter by my size. This has helped me to bag numerous bargains!
  • Sign up for emails. I know none want to receives “spam” however emails from clothing companies occasionally contain precious information such as spend & save promotions, flash sale events and % off clothing.

Hopefully this advice helps you. Below is a catalogue of the BARGAIN BUYS which have completely transformed my wardrobe!


The Bomber Jacket! 2016 Mens Fashion hottest trend. Every man needs a Bomber Jacket in their wardrobe due to its versatility for being dressed up for a night out or dressed down for a few pints with your mates on Super Sunday. While Menswear stores are heavily backing the Bomber Jacket is good news for us the abundance of choice available could be “bad” news. I have provided some of my BARGAIN BUYS as fashion inspiration for you. A Navy Bomber Jacket is a really versatile colour and works well with strong Autumn Winter colours like burgundy and green. Mens Fashion in 2016 has been dominated by one colour, TAN, as a result investing in a Tan Bomber Jacket is a great idea!
