D is getting better at pulling out choice items from a pile of unpromising rags, and he is proud of these recent finds: checked Christian Dior sports jacket, £5 from the boot sale at Brighton Marina; brand-new H&M skinny-fit jeans identical to a pair he already loves, £6 from boot sale at Poynings; white dress shirt, 20p from jumble sale. The jacket’s ’80s, we think, with a boxy shape and broad, padded shoulders; not his usual silhouette but he’s willing to experiment.
