Post by: greenstreet on January 21, 2019, 04:23:16 PM
After their boring & dull fall/winter offerings, the FP Reissues range present at last a few stylish numbers:

I like all of them, GS, but I bet they're at the upper end of the polo price range. I'm sure I saw some others in the reissue range at £150 for a short sleeve number, but I may be wrong.

Ive seen the long sleeve light blue 1 in the Newburg Street shop. It is a thing of real beauty but it's £173. Im waiting till it's in the sale.

I wouldn't  buy now either. Like LVC clothing, FP Reissues are strictly sales' gear. More so in the FP european site, where the exchange rate is exorbitant.

Meanwhile we could do with these cotton tops from Zara for just 26 €.

I'm with you on that, there's nothing interesting in their latest 'classic' offerings. The reissue range is the one to watch

This polo cardie doesn't belong to the Reissues range, but to the new Miles Kane collection; in fact, it's the only interesting number from it:

Well, guys, it's a case of: "Mr Kane, now if you please sign on the dotted line..." and voilà! a FP by Miles Kane collection is available. I don't think he's got a significant input in the design actually.

Those heritage brands are always trying to broaden their market, and I reckon the executives in charge aren't the more sussed people out there.

Some time back Miles was looked upon as a bit of a darling or saviour of the music scene here. Seen him a few times and have his first album.In general he is OK as far as I'm concerned but that's about the extent of my enthusiasm for him. Obviously getting chummy with Mr Weller and talking about bands like The Who or The Beatles gives him a bit of '60s/Mod' credibility in the eyes of some and certainly that looks to be the case with FP I imagine. I don't mind this top at all but isn't something I am personally going to go mad for especially at the sort of price I am sure it is being sold at. It is strange that anyone British and white who doesn't walk around with their trousers half hanging down calling people 'Bruv' or has long hair or face pins is somehow regarded as having some sort of Mod Aesthetic about them. I often see Jake Bugg lumped in with that way of thinking and see nothing 'Mod' about him or his music as good as some of it is. Surprised Ed Sheeran isn't regarded as Mod too!! For want of a better term the most 'Mod' new or young artists I've seen over recent years is the black American singer Leon Bridges or even for his music Raphael Saadiq. Both guys of course go way beyond being judged on the clobber they do or do not now wear.

These are really cliched tags, commodities for lazy journalists: "hey this guy looks vaguely like a "mod" (or the idea the average public has of a mod anyway), so he must be connected to it somehow". We're always over-simplifying things to market them.

Beautiful to look at, but I'm not a fan of those open neck polos. The vision of the hairy chest horrifies me, and a plain t-shirt under a pique polo is a no-no in my book.

a blue reissues tennis bomber jacket size 38, 170euro
a reissues polo shirt in sky with thick claret tipping size 38,  50euro

The two jackets are my exact size but they're still not affordable for me atm, the polo is good but I'm not in the need of it...  :-\

Jigsaw do a similar jacket but in blue [ftphttps://www.jigsaw-online.com/product/calvert-towelling-blouson/J40287_BL010][/ftp]

Orlebar Brown have done various twrry towelling jackets, including quite monkey-jacket-ish ones, but they cost a squillion pounds, like all Orlebar Brown stuff https://www.orlebarbrown.com/men/sweats/a-view-to-a-kill-jacket/navy/108603.html (https://www.orlebarbrown.com/men/sweats/a-view-to-a-kill-jacket/navy/108603.html)

They prefer the black w/ gold tipping polos. There's also another neo nazi group that were wearing chinos and BD shirts, and even another armed fringe group that identifies itself with Hawaiian print shirts...
It's crazy times now in the States, I hate to say.
That said, I bought the white/black tipped henley ;) Hopefully no group other than "California Surfers" will take up that look!

Ah raised the issue ay the Proud Boys adoptin' the black n' gold FPs as thir "uniform" some time ago oan this very forum.

Thought it wis only that colour combo that had the fascist associations tho'?

Ah know committed UK anti-fascists that sport FPs quite regularly. 

Also follow a bloke fae NY oan instagram wha's a "person of colour" but wears FP aw the time.

I don’t like black with gold FPs, otherwise I’d be tempted to get one and wear it frequently as a one-man ‘take it back’ crusade against these arseholes.
Same way the St George and Union flags have been co-opted and corrupted by right wing morons, it just makes me want to wear them even more. If people from a distance want to think I’m in that bracket then that’s their lookout. If they take a moment to get to know me they’ll quickly learn I detest everything they stand for.

Not a political association willingly pursued by the brand themselves so it's a bit unfair to veto not just the brand stuff, but even specific garments as the infamous "black w. gold piping" polo (I had many years ago a "black w. white piping one" and a couple fellas just asked me if I was a mod  ;D).

They prefer the black w/ gold tipping polos. There's also another neo nazi group that were wearing chinos and BD shirts, and even another armed fringe group that identifies itself with Hawaiian print shirts...
It's crazy times now in the States, I hate to say.
That said, I bought the white/black tipped henley ;) Hopefully no group other than "California Surfers" will take up that look!

Good choice, Mike! I'm pondering the navy henley (I've got a similar white one by JPress) but I find it overpriced.

The fascist group with chinos and BDs really worries me, is there nothing sacred? Or are they subtly reclaiming the American WASP Ivy League heritage?

Syd I think it was an intentional move towards a sort of norm core look to take the focus of them so they could go about their nefarious ways under the radar, rather than the obvious attention garnered by skinhead types.
Something similar happened in England in the nineties with football hooligans which I mentioned on here recently. The cops we’re still looking for low SES skinheads when the real perpetrators were semi-yuppies in Pringle jumpers and Farrah slacks getting to the away games by inter city train not by bus.

I think they're coming up with  "uniform", FP's  are not very common in the US, The Chino's and BD's them an air of "respectability" next to the people they hate (African Americans, Anti Facist "hippies").
Also the henley price includes tax AND shipping, so I can say I probably saved $20 off the total.

This has reminded me of the reverse attitude embraced by Miles Davis and other black jazz musicians in the mid-50s, adapting to their sartorial needs the "establishment" Ivy League look then prevalent among the white middle-upper classes as a means of subversion.

Like the henleys, I stop wearing my FPs since they've been commandeered by RW hate groups in the US lately...

Sorry to hear that, Mike, a shame that kind of association prevent you from wearing a brand we like. That was the case here some years ago, but fortunately not anymore. BTW I love the henley too

Fred Perry take action.

Fred Perry has pulled one of its famous polo shirts after it became associated with a neo-fascist organisation.

Hi Chilli, I've got a few JTG shirts  ;)  .   

Thankyou everyone for the kind words about our service. Always appreciated.

Our shirts do come up slimmer than practically everyone so they don't suit all I'm afraid.  However if they do fit you then it's a pretty excellent shirt.  Sizing guide is in the HELP section on the website.

 We're very happy to compare measurements of something you have already against ours.  Feel free to e mail us with a list of measurements or call of course (weekdays). We can then see what matches.
( For example I measure 37 on the chest, kind of slim apart from the small Bourbon belly and a 32 jean/34 JTG sta prest. A JTG 16" collar is perfect for me.)
We really are here to help you get it right or tell you it won't work if that's the case. Last thing we want is to see someone in our clothes that don't fit.
Regards, Adam

Amazing , Fred Perry ( whoever'owns them now ) , want to dictate who can and cannot wear their clothing that they sell .
Perhaps before they try and foist themselves as some sort if ethical , magnanimous company they should consider that they are having the bulk of their manufacturing  now done in Communist  China , probably now the most vile regime on the planet with an horrendous crimes against humanity record,  that continues to this day , with USA President Trump the only  world leader willing to tackle them for what they are . .

And that's why I usually only try to buy their Made in England or Made in Japan ranges.  They usually cost a bit more but I'm willing to pay that bit extra for such goods (the same principle applies to many other brands I also buy from, where possible; Made in Britain/Europe usually costs a bit more, but there's usually an uptick in the quality of the garments).
Good on you , Chili . I have been doing the same myself but l think it will be easier to not buy Fred Perry products going forward. After all,  despite there being a Fred Perry shop not far from me now , l may not be the kind of consumer they want.

I think l prefer JtG now anyway and a lot of it is now made here

I really do need to get to grips with Jump the Gun (and not just because they sponsor this site, though it's good to give something back to those organisations that support us, so to speak), though I'm never sure of their sizing.  They state that their shirts come up as very slim fitting, but I'm not sure how slim they are, and it's difficult to find shirt measurements on their site. 

It would be good to hear from anybody who has a few JtG shirts to give a size comparison against, say DNA Groove or Art Gallery for example (other shirt manufacturers are available  ;D).  They did helpfully send me a link to where the shirt sizes are on the site, but like a numpty I lost the link and haven't been able to find it since  :-[

Hi Chilli, I've got a few JTG shirts  ;)  .   

Thankyou everyone for the kind words about our service. Always appreciated.

Our shirts do come up slimmer than practically everyone so they don't suit all I'm afraid.  However if they do fit you then it's a pretty excellent shirt.  Sizing guide is in the HELP section on the website.

 We're very happy to compare measurements of something you have already against ours.  Feel free to e mail us with a list of measurements or call of course (weekdays). We can then see what matches.
( For example I measure 37 on the chest, kind of slim apart from the small Bourbon belly and a 32 jean/34 JTG sta prest. A JTG 16" collar is perfect for me.)
We really are here to help you get it right or tell you it won't work if that's the case. Last thing we want is to see someone in our clothes that don't fit.
Regards, Adam

Thanks Adam,

I should bloody well hope you do have a few of the shirts  ;D

I know I'll be on the lookout for trousers and shirts, but it might be a couple of months now before I get round to buying anything else, but at least that gives me a starting point to compare sizing with those I've already got.  And going by the compliments on here, I know I can contact you in advance if I've got any queries.

Thanks for replying.

Paul.

To think that a 16" collar shirt could fit me, now that made me feel really old, Adam  :-\ ;)
Don't feel bad GS, I'm a 16" neck in "Euro" sizing, ADAM,JtG,DNA, but a 15" or "Medium" in US.
If you lived here, you'd be considered absolutely "svelte" ;)

That sounds good, Mike, but it also means that I'd struggle there to find clobber in my size (in fact, it happened to me in NYC when I tried to find some loafers that fitted me: the Brooks Brothers' lady that assisted me, God bless her soul, was adamant I'd regret buying a larger size, something that anyway I wouldn't have done. But I still remember those flat strap Rancourts...  :-\)

BTW, it's "Irish" in name only. Not a real Irish Pub ( there's one in Detroit, the "Gaelic League" these clowns wouldn't be permitted in the door) this place is about a Irish as a "T.G.I. O'Fridays"  ;D

Makes you wonder what retail outlet Fred Perry were trying to achieve with this announcement . Was it possibly to stave off any attacks on their premises by far left racist ,  terrorist organisation ANTIFA ? Was it to get some publicity for themselves or simply to draw attention to obscure Proud Boys ?

What is certain is that , they still have no qualms whatsoever about where they go for their manufacturing , considering the bulk of which is still done in far left , racist China .
Here is what was said about China on another Mod thread ; Interesting position for Fred Perry to take , on a little known 'organisation' that they have deemed 'far-right', perhaps even a bit rich .
Fred Perry use companies wholly owned by the CCP to do much of their manufacturing and in retrospect , we all look back on the Nazi treatment of the Jews and say why didn't we do something about it , if only we knew etc.
Move forward to today , the Chinese treatment of the Uyghur Muslims which is an obvious genocide remains largely the elephant in the room . A population of 11 million in the Xinjang region echoes the 8 million population of European Jews in the 30s. Satelite images of vast concentration camps and images of prisoners lined up in railroad yards . Forced sterilisation of women then 30 tons of human hair turns up in the USA market .
How can we tolerate this ?
Why are the Chinese building a power plant in England and still carrying on business as usual with this lot ? What are we afraid of or is it just like the 30ts again ? At least then nobody had ever seen genocide on an industrial level , no excuse now .
You can say what you like about Donald J Trump but he today is the only world leader in history telling it like it is and starting to hold this monstorous regime to account . He may have his own agenda but unless we all condemn this atrocity then shame on us .
Unlike our father's generation we can't say " but we had no idea" .
The last item of clothing l bought from Fred Perry was made in Scotland but l will be avoiding buying anything now that l know is made in China by the CCP and l would encourage others to do the same .


If l owned Fred Perry , l certainly would not be getting my gear made in China by the CCP
