    I was over the moon to find a brand new linen Aquascutum jacket in a charity shop this week, alas it was way too big! A real steal at £20 though.

    I’m hearting Aquascutum for their core products in Northhamptonshire. They have a great outlet shop at Biscester village

    Hi Alice,
    £20 for a great jacket! Don’t you love when you get a bargain! Anyone can go out and spend hundreds of pounds to find a great item but it takes a good eye (and time) to find a real steal!
