Went to Duxford for the Flying Legends airshow (full album will be up on my photography site asap). Got very friendly kidnapped by a bunch of RAF chaps, borrowed a flight jacket and a lovely gent decided to scoop me up.. I had fun!
Bought a RAF suit, showing the jacket here, for just £20! Not vintage, but 80s. Still I love the cut of it!!
Wore my tan and black suit, green Miss L Fire shoes and a black Vuitton handbag.
Great photos Darlhing! Looks like you had a great time. Cute shoes by the way.
HBK those trousers really look great, even better that you made them. Need any customers for your tailoring business?

“Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes.”
This is more like what I was wearing *yesterday*, but here we are:
This photo was taken by my friend, outside the charity shop where I do my volunteer work. The light grey jacket was something I bought from the shop yesterday for just $10!!
It's in almost perfect condition (one teensy little stain. Even if the dry-cleaner can't remove it, it's barely noticeable) and it fits me perfectly! And trust me, that's like a one-in-a-million chance.
The jacket's a four-button double-breasted one, made by OPAL menswear, an Australian company.This is my first-ever double-breasted jacket. Never owned one before. I rather like it!
...Where did you get that hat, where did you get that tile? Isn't it a nobby one and just the proper style! I should like to have one just the same as that. Whereever I go they'd shout "hello, where did you get that hat?..."

Hi there, Santa. Nearly didn't recognise you without the beard, there. You look good in blue! Chuffed you're so early this year - if you would just put her down over here.... thanks!
Select recent-modern military dress uniform pieces can be a great way to expand a vintage wardrobe as many of the designs (for the Brits, at least) changed little from the immediate post-war years until well into the Eighties at least.
If in doubt - overdress.
