    I had a dream episode of Doctor Who once,
    All I can remember now though is that it involved the Master and a lift.

    So can anyone help me find a Matt Smith outfit on a budget :gah:


    Especially the jacket :coma:
    I was actually searching for one earlier on when we were talking about Haloween. This is the cheapest one I could find (£21), but it's quite costumey

    EDIT:
    Yeah, it's definitely too costumey, but i'm gonna get something like it for Haloween :cool:

    I'm sure you can find something in your grandad's closest

    I use http://qwertee.com/ but they're limited edition - sell for 3 days or so and then a new one gets brought out, and the old ones are rarely heard from again.
    Ah, so they sell one t shirt but for three days at a time? They seem so cheap that it would be pretty easy to buy quite a few that you like.

    What is the sizing like?

    That is what I am looking for :yep: But I really don't have £150+ :sad:

    I don't imagine a worn tweed jacket would age too badly :holmes:

    Do charity shops have online stores?

    It's probably best to look at their sizing chart and match it to your own tshirts. But they have a no-quibble returns/exchange thing if it doesn't fit. Be warned it does take a while for them to be delivered though, since they dispatch all of them at once and have to prepare them all and stuff, so that they can keep that price down.

    I bought a Medium and it fits quite nicely. I'm pretty much a solid medium. Only thing is I think the Tshirt is quite long - and I'm not short XD Normally tshirts are too short for me.

    Not usually :mmm:
    They're dependant on donations, so what will be in will depend on what's been given to them recently.

    You'll just have to go round the shops looking. Go to a big town and go round all the charity shops, then keep going back as often as you can.

    I got all excited then, until I saw "Age 5-6 years".

    Not sure what size you are/how fussy you are about the colour...you can always get it tailored to fit you afterwards

    I am a '39' but normally prefer a 38. What do you reckon about this jacket? And do you know if it is possible to get a tweed jacket 'taken in' similar to a normal blazer?

    I likeee don't know how I missed that while looking on oxfam!

    As far as I know you can take it in like a normal blazer! Afterall if someone managed to take in my prom dress in 24 hours as I tried it on day before prom and it no longer fitted, then I'm sure a tweed jacket can be taken in!

    Probably just a bit too big for even after being taken in :sad:

    I can't decide if I prefer the Auston Reed one or the Leithausen one. What does everyone think?

    http://www.oxfam.org.uk/shop/second-hand-clothes/658227

    Would the Austin Reed one perhaps be a tad too 'formal' for daywear?

    Also, if this thread manages to dress me as '11' I might get hold of a Fez and throw a picture of myself on here :mmm:

    I think the Leithausen for everyday wear - it's a bit more fashionable I think, without being over the top, but the Auston Reed one definitely looks more Doctor Whoish
