Not clothing but you still wear it so I guess it counts ;)

Just got it back from a mate who's training to be a watchmaker. Purchased from E Bay for £5 inc p&p, it's just been serviced with a nos plexi (hard to find in this size) and the case given a light polish. Got the leather strap from a German site as the lug width, is an unusual 17mm. Most modern watches have even number lug widths. The movement isn't anything special, but it's a manual wind and I like the Champagne sunburst dial and red numbers in the date window.  No idea of the date but probably early 70's.

Cheers Tom (& Sye). Suit is from Adam of London. I have 3 of theirs with another ready for me to collect from the DHL office tomorrow as I missed their driver today >:(

For an OTP the fit for me is a nice one, without requiring any alterations, and value for money they're hard to beat, with some quality touches too.

This pic shows the pattern in a little more detail

I bought an Adam suit just before Christmas, Sye. Bottoms are 16".
I'm sure mine were a lot wider than that, but it was about 5 years ago that I bought it. One of my mates borrowed it though & left it in the back of a taxi. Donut.

Very nice Rooster. Just picked up a pair of those Levis myself. Think they're Harvest Gold and were in a sale for £40. Seem good quality but not worn them yet. Like the Playboys too.

Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Rooster on March 19, 2013, 08:45:07 PM
yes they are, not a fan of the green lining i think the model is 508 which I quite like the fit of (and have in a pair of selvedge). But green lining is horrible IMO.
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Mano Paulo da Cuica on March 19, 2013, 09:27:27 PM
Those sta prest look like 511s, having a much narrower hem and slimmer fit than the 508s. I could be talking rubbish of course.
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Liam Mac on March 19, 2013, 09:40:20 PM
The 511 have slash style pockets as far as I remember.  Those have jeans style curved pockets.

Quite right Liam. They are 508 & the lining is more turquoise than green:

Post by: Rooster on March 20, 2013, 09:33:48 AM
yep they are 508 :) I have some 511 selvedge and are very much more fitted in the thigh. 508's have a slightly more relaxed thigh but the pic makes them look slimmer than they actually are.

If you have trouble locating some Sye, I picked up a pair of Verginia Weaver Mocc boots a few years back in a sale down from £140 to £70. They are really fantastic shoes, much more comfortable than Clarks and better leather. They're a nice alternative, especially at that price. Japanese company but made in Portugal.

Oi Polloi used to stock them a year or two back, although I've not seen any other online shop with them since.  I touched lucky and picked them in up TK Maxx last year for £28 - they were £130 full price, so a bit of a steal!

Today-
Burnt orange tweed 3 button jacket (pocket flaps so no hank)
light brown frog mouth trousers with bold light blue and burnt orange windowpane check
Chocolate brown Smedley v neck no logo :-)
pastel pink BD with french cuffs
vintage tiger eye cufflinks
orange socks
tan longwings (again)

Would have liked to have seen a photo as sounds really well thought out. Come on guys don't be shy, get your cameras out.

Sorry may try pics at some point.
Tend to lay out an outfit the night before as I get up early and the mornings are chaotic, otherwise it looks as though I got dressed in the dark with the aid of a pitch fork.
Today was to have been  "Flamboyant Fursday" for work (my personal antidote to "dress down Friday")
with grey/brown/burgundy POW jacket with lilac overcheck, burgundy jumbo cords, black beagle collar shirt and either oxblood weejuns or dark brown suede chisel toes shoes...
...but instead I'm at home looking after my little 'un who's poorly.. so in LVC 505s and an old sky blue DNA rollneck with dark blue and burgundy tipping.

Got a cracking pair of GUESS shades from TK MAXX, kinda square, vintage look about them, could have done without the branding on the arms but had to get them as they look amazing from the front, found a nice pale blue Vilebrequin long sleeve knitted polo in the wardrobe that is making a well deserved comeback for the lovely summer days in Glasgow !!!

Thanks Jase. It was a 1st meeting with a potential new client, and went really well..so well in fact that we've already set a follow up meeting for next week. It's always difficult to judge how far to go dress wise for business meetings, hence quite a conservative look (no pocket square or coloured/pattern socks for example), but still maintaining the "feel" if you get my drift. I feel I need to strike a balance between professional whilst allowing a little of my personality to come through at the same time. If I do get the deal signed up then in the future any meetings I have will be a little less formal, and I can push things more a little with the look, but will always wear a suit or jacket/trews combo...never casual.....

Hi Sye, yes point taken. The knit on this one is quite open and hence quite thick, and this was the first time I'd worn the tie so rushing as usual to get out of the house in time, I'd not had time to get it exactly as I'd like. Saying that I do like to mix up the small knots with a slightly larger one, depending on the collar. The Adam ones are quite large compared to a DNA tab collar I had which was a lot smaller. All fun and games though  :)

Accessorised with a cheap Casio ani-digital watch.
Rapha Ski-Style drawstring hat.
Track mitts, yellow lenses in the glasses but are interchangeable so will be taking a darker tint with me.
Got Sky + ready for the Paris-Roubaix and will watch it later while having my Sunday roast and a couple of cans of IPA. Have a great day fellas.

No Charlie, I know it's wrong but I don't wear one all the time. Just a personal preference and I do know the risks. I do own one which I wear for sportives/charity rides where they are compulsory but yesterday 75% of my riding was on a car free cycle path with the rest on quiet country lanes.

So we have a vintage sky blue oc Arrow "Dover" bd short sleeve shirt, with a lovely collar roll on this one.
A Uniqlo sweat shirt which although a cheap one is really warm and to their usual high quality.

Brown leather belt.
Burlington Socks (Grey/White/Navy with red check)
Clarks Originals. Can't recall the style name, but are a cross between a deck shoe & a moc. Navy blue.

That jacket is a work of art, very nice.

I agree. Love that jacket and the red lining gives a lovely contrast.

Kind of like this look Ken, there's bits and pieces of this outfit I find inspiring.
I think I'll mix a cotton Breton as opposed to a wool one with my white sneakers and blue jeans when the weather gets - if ever - warmer.
I think it's a brave move mixing those white sneakers with boot cuts though... but I kind of like it.

Today I'm mostly wearing the following:
Black leather Clarks d-boots.
Lilac, purple, light and dark grey vertical striped socks.
Black Levis 401 cords.
Black leather belt.
Lilac gingham check DNA Groove LSBD.
Dark grey lambswool Uniqlo crewneck.
Lilac, purple, light and dark grey striped scarf.
Black Gloverall duffel.
Black and grey eight piece herringbone flat cap.
Black brolly... I'm expecting rain.

I totally agree that bootcut is a very fine line - can go completely wrong if you're not careful!

Cheers! I'm about 6'1" and a bit, so yeah, that helps. But I think even more important is the kickout should be subtle and the rest of the leg reasonably straight or even slightly tight. And all of this needs to be in proportion to your height and even the size of your feet! There is no definitive ideal size for everybody and of course it's all personal preference anyway...but always very interesting to discuss!

I agree, I've been having dress sacks and suits made the last couple of years with boot cuts. I'm 5'11" with a size 12.5 shoe I think it looks better on me...

Green tailor-made jacket (part of a suit)
Brown trousers (part of a different suit!)
Checked BD shirt (Brooks Brothers slim-fit)
Brown brogues (Otsuka M-5)
Brown leather belt (Brioni)

Kinda difficult to photograph a true representation of the colours of this one (Red Steve mentioned something similar yesterday). Although subtle, there is much more of a contrast between the green jacket and brown trousers than might appear in the pics. Anyway here's today's get-up - hope you can see what I was going for:

Thanks, Steve. I've got quite a few suits, but as keen viewers of this thread may have noticed, I like to mix 'n' match the suits as well as wear the jackets with Sta-prest, jeans or whatever I think might work...

As an aside, I'm always up for a spot of inspiration - I'd love to see some more pics on this thread from a  greater variety of members! Don't be shy - "What Are You Wearing"?!

As long as the shirt complements the Bicnic subtly, I don't see any problem at all with wearing one underneath (but I do go unaccompanied on occasion too).

But a shirt - or any other layer - with a cotton Breton is just plain nasty!

How's the quality of the Beatwears?  A bit high on the calf for me but was looking at the others. Would love to know the quality on them as I am looking at David Preston's as well.

They're excellent quality, Wayne. Lovely soft leather upper, even softer red leather lining. And leather sole too, of course. Made in Italy. Haven't actually handled/tried on a pair of David Preston's so can't compare. He's bringing out some incredible cord shoes soon, though - I'm up for a pair of those!

How's the quality of the Beatwears?  A bit high on the calf for me but was looking at the others. Would love to know the quality on them as I am looking at David Preston's as well.

I bought a pair a few years back, of the black suede version of those. I don't really wear them, bought them mostly for "nostalgic" reasons.
 I can vouch that they're really good quality, though.

Actually Schott and Supreme collaborated this past winter on an amazing leather peacoat. I've got 3 peacoats as it is (Mackintosh, Jaeger and Pringle) and couldn't really justify the expense of this one - as much as I would've loved to have got my hands on it!

Here it is:

Supreme are a highish-end street/skate brand out of NYC, but some of their stuff (usually collaborations) is excellent.

Sold out now - but can still be found "new" (i.e. from "buy-to-sell investors") online for about 800 GBP; couple of hundred more than original store price, I think. Relatively recently, Supreme opened in London (Peter St., Soho). It's not Mod at all, but occasionally some very nice things come along (at crazy prices).

Neil, love the beige mac with the black and white polka dot, looks great.

GoldenGaze, i came across some Jack Purcell's in a sale last year, both canvas and leather.  All at £18 a pair . . . . .  and they had my size in both . . .  tried them on and they looked great, but i had one of those strange moments where you decide to leave them . . .   and i'm still regretting it now . . .  18 quid!!! FFS.  it even crossed my mind to buy the lot and flog them on ebay for twice the price, which would have resulted in effectively a free pair for me and a nice little profit.    what was i thinking of leaving them on the shelf?

If you like the Purcells, have a look at PF Flyers.  Many similar styles and, my opinion, more comfortable. Better insole.

I've still got a pair that I bought from TKMaxx about 10 years ago and I only paid about £20 for them but they were canvas. £60 is a lot for what they are but it's just one of those things that once you've set your sights on it you've got to have them at any cost. Not much for the PF Flyers, always thought the sole was too chunky although there's that many different designs there could be a decent pair out there.

My old man used to be Mod in the 60s so he is usually quite well turned out even though he has taken to wearing his button down collars undone lately... what's that all about?

Off Topic I know but DEAR BOY is a great read. I actually went to school with Tony Fletcher the author. Always mad for his music even back then almost 40 years back. He was in a band who actually supported The Jam on their final gigs at Wembley. Good bloke who I recently met up with again at The Chords reunion gig in London. Back on Topic now guys sorry!

Can't for the life of me get my head round these midget collar rolls on a button down shirt, championed by the likes of those charismatic tv pundits, Ol Big Ears & Shearer! Could someone explain this phenomenon to me please? Serious question.  What logical reason is there for wearing a button down collar without the royalty of the actual collar roll?!!!!

Neil, did you purchase from the sale? Or pay full price? Only ever seen one in real life and it was a joke for the price. Tissue thin cotton and poorly made in my opinion.

Via a slice of good luck I got 3 for the price of 1.
Purchased them for work with the view alterations would be needed.

Normally only stick to Mikkel Rude gingham and window pane check short sleeves as they are better then the long sleeves.

No mate, given to me by my in laws.

Learnt a lesson about robbing glasses from bars a few years ago. Was at a friends house for a party and we had got quite friendly with the owner of a bar we drank in. Talking to my friend he said our mutual friend was coming to the party, he then looked down at the glass I was drinking from and realised a large percentage of his glasses (quite nice ones) had been "borrowed" from the bar. Rushed collection and hiding of glasses took place.

It's all in the details, very nice.

Le coq sportif offers them in two or three colors in their web (think they're 80 € or so), but my favourite at the moment is the mcgregor tennis jacket (versions in white and dark blue, without logo), sadly they're overpriced. I've got 2 FP + a blue one from a spanish brand + a 80s vintage one in white + a nice Blackswan one (oddly, in white too  :) ). Just need a grey one and a oxblood one and a.......I LOVE monkey jackets!

Last Friday evening...

Custom Made Dbl Breasted 3 on 6 Charcoal pinstripe suit, boot cut trousers w/1.5 in. cuff.
Blue tailor made copy of PG Tulip Collar Oxford shirt
Brooks Bros. silk pocket square Pink w/ blue border
Black suede & leather  shoes from Kenneth Cole

This suit, although looks quite big at first glance, really actually is very interesting and although seems a bit big,  its part of its character, the longer skirt, slightly flared trousers ... think it would make a BIG difference if you shortened the sleeves, expose some cuff, it would be soo much better. But overall dig it (except the shoes, not my cuppa) ;)

Leamington Spa now, left Sedgley in 98 to move to the great metropolis of Wolves, then followed the missus here in 04, but the folks still live over that way so still occasionally stop by and see that mates from 20+ years ago still drink in the Cabin!

i have a JTG gingham and ive never been massively happy with it.  its a soft "cheescloth?" type material which lacks the "structure" of, say a ben sherman which could be had for the same money.  is that still the case.

personal thing and i do feel bad doing JTG down as i live and die in their strides, and they are lovely to deal with.

The most recent JTG Ginghams I've bought over the last year or so have upgraded to a higher percentage of cotton and have the 'crisp' look you'd expect from a proper shirt if you know what I mean.

"Feel Bad" Mr D. we are just so upset that I don't know what to say.  I am joking of course  ;D .
  We have tried to improve the cloth and give them a better handle. Our new double colour Ginghams would likely feel much better.  I would of course always recommend Adam of London but there is a massive difference in cut as there is with any Ben Shermans.
We promise to try to do better........

This was yesterday's look. Hadn't planned on going out, and was working in my office wearing jeans & an old FP,but got a late afternoon call from an old client looking at buying some land to build a new house on, so grabbed the first thing that came to hand.

Now I'll admit the shirt isn't a first, or even a 2nd choice. It's a M&S cheapie, you know the sort...pack of 3 for a tenner, but I have one or 2 handy in case of emergencies and this afternoon was one such case. My best white shirts we're waiting to be ironed, so had to grab one of these instead  :-[

Anyway, enough of my white shirt emergencies:

Vintage blazer from the States. Half lined, and a nice light fabric. (see label below)

M&S shirt (sorry)  ;D

Wine & navy repp tie.

Grey POW trousers with red over stripe.

Black Socks.

Black Hudson basket weave loafers.

Royal Engineers Crested tie clip. Belonged to my grandfather who served, but I wear it now and again.

Nice outfit - and I love the tie - is it one of the guards divisions that have that tie?  I can beat you on the shirts.  my take on this look includes the suit jacket from a washable (yes you heard right) suit from m&s.   it fits well, was cheap and if somehing nasty happens it dont need dry cleaning!

not brave enough for the metal buttons on a blazer. my dad wore em a lot and that probably dont help =)

Steves jacket is washable too. You can see the "wash n' wear" label in the second to last picture.

I must admit that's about the only decent charity shop find I've ever had (bar the odd tie). Got them from a charity shop In Wells, Somerset. There was a little wear to the soles but apart from that they've been great and get a lot of wear during the summer...so comfortable too.

I think the beads are a nod to the original North Americans who I understand use to trade goods with highly decorative beadwork with the settlers from Europe. I'm quite fond of them personally, as they add a little character to the shoes  8)

They do add character. Always important our clothes should reflect us and be personal to us. I'm quite anal (no jokes lads, lassies joke all you like  :) ) this is reflected in my fairly conservative dress  :)

I got mine 2nd hand from the forum, although it was like new. The chap I bought it from got it from the States I think. They do come up on e bay, Etsy and the like quite a lot. The M&S one does look good and isn't a bad price either.

Its a two button...with twin vents !!
Of course I am of the 3 Button crowd, or 2/3, but recently i have to say i have been converted to accepting a decent two button, twin vents, no ticket pocket etc..! Classic gentleman if you will, smart dressing with no fancy add ons. I would still however wear a 13'' centre vent, 8 button cuff 3 ticket pockets etc... 8) That would be more towards my options come MTM or bespoke or splashing out alot. I think people tend to get so obsessed with 'the details' however that they sacrifice quality just to have it.

I think it  looks  very smart  indeed. For  work I often have to wear a two button  jacket. It can still look Sharp as - when teamed properly  with the right shirt, trouser, shoe combo just as you have shown here.

I'm another BIG fan of this look. Great photo layout too (wish I could do something similar). I don't have any issues with 2 button jackets. I've been wearing a slim fit Uniqlo linen jacket recently. Nice cut and cool in the warmer weather too. It's not just about one item of clothing but the overall look, and I do think this is an excellent one.

I flagged this Seersucker 3 button jacket up to Wayne earlier today but it's too large for him. Maybe it would fit someone else:

I believe 2 button seersucker was the Ivy standard. Would like the 3 button.

You reckon? That's the first I've heard of it.

My experience is that 3/2 and straight 3 button was most common.

Not certain, several websites seem to state that. All of the US "Ivy" shops do two button.

Was just searching about on Google. Yes, BB J.Press.

Seems the Ivy lads took seersucker suits/jackets from the "gentlemen" of the Southern US.

It's popular in the south,  definitely (for obvious reasons).  I'm not sure what you mean about the 'Ivy lads' taking it though.

As far as I know Brooks were making 3/2  seersucker jacket and suits in the 1910s or 20s. I'm not sure about the fabric before then. Would that date tally up with your thinking?

Brooks and Press do mainly 2 buttons now in most lines to conform to current trends but I would also say they don't do Ivy anymore. The shoulder alone is enough to say that confidently.

Early 1900s I believe is what I read. The University lads nicked the look off the South and made it their own was what I read.

Most everything BB does now is 2 button, I don't mind the 2 button, but the buttons are too low sometimes, that's what kills it for me.

Here's a lot of seersucker jackets:

Agree with you here. The button stance is bad. Vintage Brooks had a really good high button stance.

Plus those jackets are waisted, are too short in the body and have shoulders you serve drinks on. From an Ivy perspective Brooks, on the whole,  is dead.

Black Dockers "City Fit" whatever that means
Black belt
Red socks

The Brooks Brothers Shop in London's Regent St had x2 Seersucker Jackets when I looked the other day. A 3/2 roll one for a decent price (can't remember - possibly £199 or less), and a 2 button one, which may be Black Fleece as it was about £350!?

Well worth a look if you're in town... I prefer my RL 3/2 from TK Mod, there were loads in the 2 or 3 London stores I looked at the beginning of the year - you may be lucky and find one in a TK Shop!

I'm not a BB rep (honestly) but I asked a sales person.
If you get what they call a "Fitzgerald" fit, it's a slim fit jacket with higher button placement,  and higher arm holes. Less padding in the shoulders too.

The other fits: Madison, Cambridge, Regent, Milano, all have differing fits...

Just got back from a week in Sardinia for a friends wedding, fantastic place if anyone was wondering! Beautiful wedding setting.

Haven't seen all of the pics yet but here's a quick one for an outfit I wore out for lunch one day:
FP button down white polo, bespoke brown belt, mustard slim cut chinos, Russell & Bromley brown suede loafers.

And an extremely tired expression as a result of drinking whilst having glandular fever, ha!

Brown with faint blue and russet check suit. Original 60's found on eBay.
Sea green bespoke shirt from Itailor. took a punt and it turned out very well indeed.
Brown Trickers loafers
Bottle green socks from Next - don't knock it, they're good for the basics!
Bottle green 1 1/2'' tie
Green and gold check hankie.

I agree with Bobby. The suit and shirt look great, but the trousers, for me at least, could be taken up slightly.

I would have gone with a more reddish/wine/burgundy colour tie to contrast the green a little, and to pick up on the russet colour of the suit, maybe something in the orange/purple colour spectrum would also work too.

I also think a nice bunt orange (nothing too bright though) could also work well.The great thing which you're doing is mixing the old with the new, which I often try myself. A vintage suit/jacket combined with a new shirt etc, Keep posting the photo's up too.

White (short) socks.
White North West shoes.
White Rose mac (not shown but worn after about 20 minutes)
Track mitts.

Did a council backed bike ride yesterday with a couple of mates. Several of the main roads out of Bristol including the Portway which runs under the Clifton Suspension Bridge were closed to motorists. The weather forecast was for an overcast start with the promise of a little sunshine followed by rain in the afternoon. No problem I thought we'll be back by midday. The route was only 40 miles (Clevedon & back to Bristol) and included only a couple of hills. Bl**dy forecasters ... why do I bother listening to them! By 9.45 the heavens opened and it didn't stop til at least 4pm.

Even the landlord of my favourite City Centre pub made us drink outside when we got back as he didn't want us messing up his freshly polished wooden floor. Nice!

As you can see my fellow riders decided to wear gear more suited to a summers day in June, including overshoes.

Sometimes the quality of the suit pattern just stands out that to try anything else doesn't work. Not saying that's the same with yours as I think blue is a less dominant colour so could well be ok with a pale pink/sky shirt/polka dot tie etc.

Maybe the old adage of less is more works when it comes to POW suits?

Will play a bit more, always going with white shirt and sky last minute as others seemed a bit off.

Closer look at the suit cloth here:

http://www.jumpthegun.co.uk/product/JTG_Blue_PoW_Suit (http://www.jumpthegun.co.uk/product/JTG_Blue_PoW_Suit)

Aside from white shirt and sky tie, what else can I pair with it?  Love the suit but cannot seem to pair anything else. Thoughts?

I would stick to white shirt (maybe sky as someone nicely pointed out) and either blue, lilac or red base colour tie ... after all POW isnt really meant to be played around with ... much easier to mix and match say dark blue suit

I flagged this Seersucker 3 button jacket up to Wayne earlier today but it's too large for him. Maybe it would fit someone else:

After checking the sizing on these jackets, I took a punt and got this one for £50 including shipping. It arrived yesterday and thankfully fits ok. Cheers for flagging it up Steve, it's just what I was after. I love it when a risky ebay bid pays off :)
I'll post some pics when I get time.

Just having a play around with the seersucker, it needs a light ironing and is a little on the big side. Might see if it can be tweaked by my alterations lady.

seersucker jacket by Cremieux
club collar shirt from Savile Row Company
Paul Smith cufflinks
vintage italian wool tie
navy Farah trousers
Couldn't decide on shoes - either navy Florsheim drivers or Momentum moccs. Went with the moccasins in the end, purely because they match the tie colour perfectly

I really like that jacket and I like how it fits.  I'd be wary of nipping it in too much.

Maybe a little off the cuff and a little shave of the quarters so they don't completely close over.

It will look really good with a soft collar shirt too but most importantly embrace the seersucker slouch.

Off out for a couple and maybe a bit of a drum at jam night.

Bit of no-mark knitwear picked up at TK-Maxx last week, JTG brown wool trousers and plain old Next dessies. Smart casual/nowt too special, but it feels great.

New King Paisley Shirt I had  made at my specifications Not to everyone's taste probably  but  I love  it!

Thanks Steve. It is certainly different and is a bit  louder and more psychedelic than what I would  normally wear. But  I just fancied something a  bit  different. I still like to experiment a little. I absolutely  love the cut  of the shirt and the style  of the collar and cuffs. I think next time  I will go for the same design but with a plainer fabric. Either a solid color or a polkadot. :)

a simple look perfectly executed Steve,

To be honest, it's the first polka dot shirt I've bought since I picked one up mail order from Melandi in Carnaby St back in '80  :)
I have a few jackets that I thought it would work with, and it wasn't hugely expensive.

Pleasantly surprised. Usual JTG fit which is perfect for me but the fabric seems a lot crisper compared to the others I've had from them in the past including a few plain colours and a couple of their gingham ones too. The length of this one is a little longer by about an inch, which for a tall chap like me is also a benefit.

Cheers Dan, appreciate your comment. The benefit with the jacket is that it doesn't have the usual Harrington lining of tartan/check which is usually quite vivid. I find, that for me, this makes working a pattern shirt quite difficult. I do mix it up with the collar depending on what I'm wearing underneath be it a shirt, FP, etc. Yesterday it just looked better down, and did help to show off the shirt more which like you said helps to show off the shirt more.

Great Summer look. The 4 button FP is not familiar. Is that one of their Japan only versions or vintage? I like the turn up's as they are. Gives it a chilled, relaxed vibe. Lovely jacket too. Fits you like the proverbial.  8) Did you get this as a M 2 M from Claudio?

The FP is a few seasons old so my memory is a little hazy as to which range it was from and I've found DNA Groove's medium fits like a glove without any bespokes.

I'm a 38R Steve.
If you take a large in DNA's shirts I'm hazarding a guess that a large would be good for you too but as always, like everyone says about DNA; if not sure, drop Claudio a line.

The Levis are new Wayne, and the socks were free from Mendoza to apologise for messing up my trouser order. Oddly I didn't find them until I was clearing out some boxes for recycling. :) Nice touch by them and yes, they are very wearable too.

a simple look perfectly executed Steve,

never really looked twice at that shirt on the site but i'm liking the look of it now ive seen that collar

To be honest, it's the first polka dot shirt I've bought since I picked one up mail order from Melandi in Carnaby St back in '80  :)
I have a few jackets that I thought it would work with, and it wasn't hugely expensive.

Pleasantly surprised. Usual JTG fit which is perfect for me but the fabric seems a lot crisper compared to the others I've had from them in the past including a few plain colours and a couple of their gingham ones too. The length of this one is a little longer by about an inch, which for a tall chap like me is also a benefit.

I have always rated JTG sta prest but found the shirt cotton quality to be poor. Have things improved?

This is the best one I've had so far. I recall on another thread here that they've changed their supplier (or something like that) and this one is a lot nicer than others I've bought. The material feels a lot more "crisper" and the length in the body is longer too. The gingham checks were of a softer fabric, and whilst still nice, this one is far better in my opinion. I guess you could always ring them and ask. I've always found them to be extremely helpful to deal with.

Perhaps you should do a book to rival Smiler's forthcoming Mod tome... 'Fifty Shades of Beige' perhaps?

Actually always thought we called beige things like 'stone' and 'off-white' but MS my friend, I like your plain speaking!

... although to be picky I would argue Steve's jacket more 'taupe' than beige but may just be my monitor settings...

BTW, does anyone know how to take proper care of this vintage stuff? The website said it was 100% wool and you could machine wash it at 30º, but I'm not sure. Hand wash perhaps?
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: StevePWilliams on July 11, 2013, 12:21:50 PM
Nice summery look, very much like the collar on the top!

Looks fairly lightweight so I'd say machine wash @ 30 would be fine - I never give overly special treatment to my knits, other than taking them straight out of the machine after washing and drying flat - if it looks like it has shrunk slightly I just give it a gentle pull here and there to get its original shape back. From the looks of the pic though it looks like one of those which will dry almost instantly after coming out of the wash!

Thanks Richard, although I would add I didn't serve. This was my Grandfather's regiment and I inheritted quite a few of his things related to his life in the RE's after he died. He served from 1939 to 1946, was evacuated fom the beaches at Dunkirk and was also one of the first wave to land at the beaches in Normandy too. I was lucky enough to go with him back to Normany in 1984 for the 40th anniversary of the landings. Along with his tie clip I also have his blazer, medals and the watch he got when he retired from Shell Oil in 1979. He died in 1986 and I still miss him today.

This is his Dunkirk medal & the Omega (which I wear now) and it always reminds me of him.

 ;D - I had The Italian Job shown during part of my Stag Night in a little private cinema we had booked as part of the day. One of the lads with us had somehow never seen the original film. In the scene (which I assume you refer to) where the Mafia have just trashed the 2 Jags, a horrific cry from the back of the room came from said fella -
"NOT THE ASTON!!" he shouted, followed by a pained shreik once the car was pushed over the cliff of "NOBODY TOLD ME IT WAS A HORROR FILM!!!!)

There's a story behind that scene in the Italian Job. Apparently they didn't have the money to destroy such valuable cars. So 1 of the e-types was a crash damaged 1 rescued from a scrap yard, the 2nd. belonged to the films producer & the Aston was actually a Lancia with the front end covered up with papier mache & an Aston Martin grill fixed over the top.

Cheers mate ! Not usually my thing, was after a smarter pair to wear with brogues etc for winter with a jacket at work but these fit the bill nicely. Fairly relaxed in the thighs which is good for me with a bit of stretch and a taper towards the end, really like them. A more causual look.
I only really post what I think others might enjoy or anything new. Day to day not at work is jeans and boots, shirt knitwear etc. Typical stuff..

Suits & Shirt tailored
Adrian Dr. Martens Loafer
Rayban Folding Wayfarrer

Nice !  Very bold. but like others say only thing I dislike is shoes...dont mind the DM sole with causal trs or Jeans but not with a suit, a thinner sole would look better IMO.

Nothing special at all, just what I wear for work:

Vintage 60s l/s knitted polo
70s 'S' belt.
Zara slim cut jeans w/ 0.5" sewn-in turnup
Austin Reed socks
Clarks tassle loafers

Very casual (& very blue!), comfortable for work, anything more adventurous and it seems to draw looks from my boss!

Works for me too Steve. Whilst mainly blue as you said there is plenty of detail here too. The "S" belt, known to me from my youth as a snake belt, the collar of the polo, socks & turn-ups all make it work to my eye. Nice one.

It certainly was in the early '70's in Bristol. We all wore them. Some plain, some multi-coloured striped. We also call trainers "daps"

Today's get up (plus the return of the incredible parachuting rat!). Really happy with the raincoat which is very similar to the JTG Harry Palmer style one but I picked it up in a charity shop in Chester for a fiver...
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: StevePWilliams on September 11, 2013, 02:14:53 PM
It all works well together for me. (even the rat!) - like the shoes and cut of the trousers.

Coat looks a touch too big though? Arms especially - if you only paid a fiver for it I'd be tempted to have the arms taken in & shortened.

I agree. The style is great, just seems to swamp you a little. I'd definitely get the sleeves looked at and maybe taken up a little too.

It's a top layer raincoat though. It's supposed to sit over a suit or sportscoat. Here it looks as if it's just being worn over a shirt (?). Maybe this is the problem?

this is a good point. Size looks right if you want to wear a suit under it. If not, the suggestions of having the arms looked at (and personally i'd maybe have it shortened a little too) are a good one, even after that it'll still be a good price for a nice looking coat
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: TomP on September 11, 2013, 05:22:09 PM
Cheers for the comments everyone. It does sit a bit better over a jacket. I suppose it's a fine line between being able to wear it as a stand alone coat without being swamped and it being too snug over a suit. I'll have a bit of a think.
BTW, cheers for your comments on my last ensemble Steve. Shortened the legs, went with a burgundy tie and wore it to a mate's wedding. Looked the business and had loads of positive comments. Cheers!

They're your standard 501 One Wash that have been worn and washed a lot over the last couple of years.

Is that the batch they made prior to this season? Apparently LVC have undone all their good work and the current 519 reissue is a skinny fit with a lower rise. Such a shame as, like you said, the slightly earlier reissue was spot on.

They are the older 519 Liam, I know what you mean about the latest ones; the difference is huge.

Ok then. Suit a bit crumpled after a few hours in a car though.
Shoes were Black Oxford cap. Hardly any of these 2 button suits left at JTG. They were quite late 50's cut compared to the usual ones.

Would love to see a full shot, Adam. I've looked at the 2 button suits from JTG and they look very sharp.

Ok then. Suit a bit crumpled after a few hours in a car though.
Shoes were Black Oxford cap. Hardly any of these 2 button suits left at JTG. They were quite late 50's cut compared to the usual ones.

This was always available in the shop and online but most are sold out. Still a few Charcoal and some Beige check(really killer but more summer weight) but not many.
They definately came up a bit bigger than our usual suits so some people sized down a little. I didn't as I wanted it a bit less fitted. I measure 36" on the chest and I wear a 36" in the two button, our  three button is snugger on me than this.
We only made 65 two button suits accross the fabrics and most people thought they weren't mod enough, I beg to differ.

It's probably a bit more Mad Man than Mod, but I think it's a good thing. You sold me a navy one two years ago. The fabric is nice and heavy. I wore it a few weeks ago at a wedding, but all I have is this phone picture of the trousers and the Gant Rugger Shantung tie.

Adam, never mind what the people say (pity that a business just have to  ;)...). I'm a 3 buttons suit man myself, but I'm sold on your two buttons, think is fantastic and the fit's just right. Love that late 50s-early 60s look, btw. In fact, judging by the pics I've seen, I always found the typical JTG suits too slim for my taste, but this one's just right. Pity I don't have the money for a suit... :)

I have to say chaps that there have been some exceptional ensembles posted in the last few days.

I have a Christmas/ Birthday present option coming up and have around £300 to spend. I know this isn't necessarily the right thread YET (but I will be wearing it within the next couple of months I guess) but what are your thoughts on this Austin Reed jacket

   http://www.austinreed.co.uk/fcp/product/austinreed/Blazers-and-Jackets/Dark-Brown-Overcheck-Blazer-Jacket/13671

the other option is a trip to Adam of London for a suit OR one of Claudios lovely DNA creations.

The AR jacket looks good to me, but if it's just a jacket you want at this price I'd be ordering a DNA one. For 300 euros you'd have change from your £300 plus a jacket that you'd be highly unlikely to see anyone else wearing.

Alternatively for £25 more, like you said an A of L 2 piece is a definite option. I have 3 of their suits and would happily buy several more. However, if I had £300 right now, I'd be contacting Claudio.

It is indeed Brian. First wear today. Really pleased with it and even more so given it was just £30. The fit over the suit jacket is spot on, but would also be fine with just a shirt/sweater.

The shoes were just one of those lucky finds in House of Fraser c2003. Still look good now despite having seen lots of wear as my default business shoe. I'll see if I can get some better photos for you.

Just off for a stroll to a nice pub a few miles away. Very Autumnal here in Bristol this morning, so dressed to combat all the elements. Hoping for a nice Sunday roast on arrival & a couple of pints of best.

DNA pale blue shirt.
Recently acquired vintage Fair Isle sweater.
Levis.
Cream wool hiking socks.
Hudson Brogue style boot.
Repro field jacket from Army surplus store.

[/quote]

Briefly as this probably is the wrong thread:
JTG compared to AoL: Jackets are slimmer on the shoulder and narrower arm openings, shorter and slightly boxier but still slim fitting, not so hour glass shape, narrower lapels.
Trousers are much narrower all the way through with no side adjusters.

If OTP and not bespoke/MTM then going by the cut and detailing I'd wager Adam of London or JTG.  Could be completely wrong though!

Sorry to be a right old stick in the mud but am I the only one who thinks this is spoilt somewhat by the trousers being worn on the hips?

I mean look at all that extra fabric at the back of the thigh!

The trousers don't look particularly high in the waist anyway but to me wearing them like that is very sloppy and looks silly.

Cheers for the  replies,

Ten out of ten for the JtG suit spotters. The shirt is either an AoL or JtG too, quite liking spearpoint collar shirts at the minute so have a few.

Liam, I accept your critique and it would indeed be sloppy if I was - in fact - wearing them at hip level. I think it has more to do with camera angle, some obscure weather effects and (insert bonus excuse here).  I am saddened that you find the whole effect silly, this was not my intention.

SuaveCollective, that pipe is in fact my "I'm going to the bar, do you want a drink?" wave. This is a sight not often seen around these parts.

My first post in this thread but this is what I wore to school this morning. I didn't really need the coat as the weather here is still quite warm (I am currently living in South Korea). Also, sorry about the state of the bottom of my mirror. It has been a long week and I have yet to find time to clean it!

Trench Coat (which is more of a gold colour. I wasn't sure at first but it looks pretty good I think)
Dark grey shawl neck cardigan (Uniqlo)
Burnt orange knitted tie
Plain white shirt (just something I picked up for work)
Vintage Airplane propeller tie clip (it belonged to my Great Granddad)
POW Check cotton trousers (Dockers)
Orange Socks (M&S)
Dark Brown Chukka Boots

The Saint James sweaters are nice. Have a plain navy one, and quite often they're warm enough to wear without a coat, even during the coldest of days. Fancy a cream one now.

i got mine half price(50 quid) in the urban outitters january sale a few years back,

another reason you end up wearing them most of the winter is they hardly ever need ironing.

favourite item of clothing? good idea for a thread that  ;)

Adam, they look good on you if you just need to wear them infront of the screen or something - not to keep them on all day. They are a bit OTT to wear all day but interesting enough for a temp look (if you knwo what I mean)

Hi Adam - if you're referring to the Harry Palmer style glasses on the Klookskleek E-bay link I sent I've also been tempted by these.

I can however vouch for the 'Riviera style glasses he sells. In the words of Tony the Tiger 'They'reeeee Great!!'

They remind me of those worn by Jean Paul Belmondo in A Bout De Souffle... which is no bad thing in my book!

Looks like a good outfit Steve but hard to tell colours cos of the lighting. Hope the shoes are brown to match the strides but can't tell. Jacket is pulling a bit around the buttoning point, my seamstress would charge me $20 to let the sides out a bit under the arms to fix that. Might be worth considering if its bothering, you but either way - nice combinations.
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread

Thanks Claudio, much appreciated.

@ThePersuasion, the shoes are actually Loake boots. They have 3 eyelets and I've had them for years, so not sure if they are still available. I'll dig them out tomorrow, and have a look at he label inside to see if I can provide you with anything useful.

Hope there's enough there for you to go on if you intend looking for a pair.

Is that a printing error that's supposed to say "Stewart" ?

"Stewrat" doesn't sound quite as appealing...

I did think that, but as they also say "Legend" I'll let them off on the typo  ;D

Wish Loake still did those. Nice!  I have a pair of Herring boots (made by Loake I believe) but rarely wear them as the top part of the shoe digs into my ankles and is really stiff. Never seems to wear in.

No problem. I think I found these in a House of Fraser sale years ago. They must have been well priced as Loakes are usually out of my budget when rrp. They wear really well, and are extremely comfortable.

These are excellent pics Steve. Everything fits well and looks classy and not flashy. When people sneer at Mods it just shows their ignorance, with an outfit like this you are 100 percent with the original aesthetic but at the same time flying under the radar. I've worn similar outfits and occasionally got the nod of recognition from a fellow traveller, a kind of 'yeah, he gets it' tacit acknowledgement. In my imagination the original faces of the late fifties and early sixties probably experienced something similar as they went about their business in suits that blended in to a degree with 'normal people' (!) but always had that extra subtle detail that was recognizable to others in the know.

Anyway, didn't meant to ramble but I love that there are other like minded fellas out there. Great outfit.

Re: WayneK's great WAYW thread pics.

I love this look (and I refuse to call it simple) - beautifully understated and clearly put together with great care. When I read back on the 'beginnings of Mod' and how into a drab and austere post war Britain arrived colourful light-weight Italian knitwear - these delicious shades of mustard etc are just how I picture it in my minds eye.

DNA/Claudio often pairs suits and sports jackets with these bold slashes of solid coloured knitwear which to these eyes at least seem the perfect Mod look, somehow softening the severity of a suit or jacket but retaining wholly the essence of a casual understated smartness!

Great stuff gents (incl the Steve's) - truly inspirational and aspirational!

Closer look at the suit cloth here:

http://www.jumpthegun.co.uk/product/JTG_Blue_PoW_Suit (http://www.jumpthegun.co.uk/product/JTG_Blue_PoW_Suit)

Aside from white shirt and sky tie, what else can I pair with it?  Love the suit but cannot seem to pair anything else. Thoughts?

Just going over old posts and came across this. I LOVE this POW with blue over check (usually they are pink/red). I had a JTG delivered to me but the sizing was off, way too much cloth under the arms to be taken n without completely screwing up the pattern matching, plus sleeves were way too long and have surgeon's cuffs so couldn't be shortened.

I am probably gonna get one made for me by Thick as Thieves as I had decent results from them with my first try on a powder blue-gray sharkskin.

A shut like this a crying out for a shirt and/or tie in blue to make the over check pop. I see it with a white shirt (maybe a blue pencil stripe) and my electric blue grenadine tie.

Firstly I like Thick as Thieves too. As far as the JTG suit it is unusual that you can't take in any of the cloth under the arm/across the back, opening up the arm holes and tucking it in usually works fine. Obviously harder with a check but definitely possible. Sleeves can be shortened even with the working cuff. Depending on how much, you can end up loosing a button or two. Jackets also come in a regular or short fit which usually sorts this problem out.
Sorry but I couldn't help replying to this as i've seen a lot of alterations in my time...
After all of that , thick as thieves will make one exactly to your size as long as your good with a tape measure.

I own three suits from JtG and, unfortunately, have short arms!  No worries, however, my tailor sorted the sleeves out each time.  I lost one button in the process but it was done quite well.  Another method would involve shortening from the shoulder end.  My tailor claimed the arms are too (tapered?, slim?) to do this properly without having an issue with the sleeve.

Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Adam on November 21, 2013, 06:06:53 PM
Agreed. Better from the sleeve than the top of arm. Did have one guy who ended up with just one button left. Looked ok but it was pushing it as the taper on the sleeve was getting tricky.
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Rod on November 21, 2013, 06:18:28 PM
Hope that didn't make me come off as a dis-satisfied customer Adam. You lot gave top drawer customer service and the QUALITY of the suit was fine, a very high 'bang for the buck' ratio. Would love to visit the shop in person if I ever make it over there and see if I can get some stuff to fit in person rather than gambling with mail orders.

Surgeon's cuffs on OTR jackets is a bit of a stone in the shoe for me. I don't THINK I'm out of proportion but I frequently need to shorten sleeves (especially to show shirt cuffs). Most people don't get this and I see several people, yes - even on this site, with too long jacket sleeves. Shortening from the shoulder is tricky and expensive. Shortening from the cuff can be done but it can also leave the remaining buttons too close to the sleeve end. IMO there should be t least an inch between the last button and the sleeve end, which can only be done if sleeve buttons are very widely spaced.

My TaT suit needed some adjustments post delivery. If I go with them again I'll send back my adjusted suit and get them to copy it closely as its now a very good fit. Again, a high bang for the buck ratio there too.

Hi Rod,
you certainly didn't come off as anything than a bloke who likes his clobber to fit properly. I don't have any problem with that.
If you want an inch then you're right about not being able to shorten them, Shoulder only I think. I hate a long sleeve too so I'm totally sympathetic.
Good luck with the TaT, he's a good bloke. And If I ever hear your over here and don't visit I'll be most upset  ;)

I'm still quite new to this board so I'm not sure what the etiquette is in responding to pics. We need more pics on this thread and I intend to contribute more soon, meanwhile I appreciate those that regularly post pics like the two Steves. Is critique OK or should we limit comments to praise? You put up some great pics Steve, and have a good eye for assembling snappy outfits, but every time I see pics of this suit I can't help thinking you should have sized down. It looks like your shoulders end several inches before the jacket's do, and that's what has caused those vertical folds on your upper chest. Not sure if that can be fixed, or if it even bothers you enough to want to try. Anyway, apologies if I'm out of order here. The rest of your outfit looks great as usual.

Nothing wrong with critique as long as it's constructive. I know Red Steve likes an Adam suit and I find with my Adam's suits that the waisted nature of the jackets tend to almost exaggerate the width of the shoulders despite them fitting perfectly. (A look I happen to like, mind.)

The website looks very interesting but as I said on here some time ago, the jackets are all displayed with all three buttons fastened (the horror!) which makes them look VERY waisted, almost effeminate. I'd like to see how that translates in real life (wih lowest button open) as I like a bit of waist suppression myself too.

I have a couple of Adam suits, and they're a great fit for off the peg clothing. A tailor pointed out the shoulders were not "dead on" me, but it was very minor, nothing I would change, I think you're right, Rod, probably due to the "waisted" cut.
I don't think you'll be disappointed when you check them out.

Again, from my wife's camera so hence the delay, Friday night out's flicks:

Vintage mid-century US sport-jacket.
Silk PS.
DNA Groove BD.
Vintage wool knitted tie with silver clip.
The same M2M trews I wore last post.
Uniqlo socks.
Bass Weejuns.
Uniqlo mack with liner in... brrrr.

Excellent outfit Bobby.
There seems to be a trend, especially in America, that odd jackets have to be loud to distinguish them from being orphaned suit jackets, but I don't go for that 1970s Roger Moore broadcheck thang at all. You've got yourself a really nice jacket there and I much prefer the more subtle, subdued checks. It's clearly still an odd jacket not part of a suit, and matches up well with your other choices.

Found a padded blazer/jacket that was within my price range. Not everyone cup of tea but bridges the gap between light jacket and a heavy coat quite well. Quite happy with suede monks too which are an ebay find.

Whoah! The socks! THE SOCKS!

That blazer looks just like one in the 'I'd wear that' thread recently.

Tasty looking shoes. I have some lace ups in 'snuff' suede but was a bit disappointed they weren't a bit more like that ginger colour in real life.

It was 'that' blazer that made me pull the trigger on this! Was unsure at first  (as you can tell from that thread!) but it just grew and grew on me, and when I found this one in a sale I had to.
I'm happy with the shoes  8) only problem with any sort of slip on (despite the strap) I usually need to size down, and at 6'1 this sometimes means my feet look tiny as they're not exactly large anyway (keep 'those' jokes to yourself gents)
And I do like a nice pair of subtle socks  ;)

Been away for a week or so on holiday, and just catching up on what's been going on. Very, very sad news re Liam. We'd been exchanging messages only a few weeks ago about collar sizes and shapes of all things. A really funny chap with a dry sense of humour who, although I never spoke with or met, know I would have hit it off with. Thoughts go out to his close friends and family.

Been use to slightly warmer weather so had to wrap up a little more today than of late.

Think he snagged that beauty off ebay if I remember correctly! John Lewis how some shortish macs in for 99 quid. Nothing special style wise but look decent enough when I tried one on.

Post by: Martin G on November 29, 2013, 07:46:05 PM
Yep that is a lovely looking mac no question. I am a shorter fella myself also about 5-9' and I have a very nice mac from M&S. It was originally about 100 quid, then reduced to £75 and when I grabbed one at an outlet shop was reduced at the till to £50 so I was smiling all the way. Goes to show there is always decent gear to be had often in not the most obvious places either whether it be vintage or current.

Nice jacket Rod...i'm not sure of the flapped pockets on it though,maybe because any MJ i've seen has them without.
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Rod on December 02, 2013, 01:33:50 PM
Yeah I probably would have preferred without but it wasnt a deal breaker for me.  Saw the Fred Perry ones and would have loved one but think the whites are discontinued.
At least the branding is subtle on this one. White on white David Watts stitching on one flap is all, barely noticeable. It's a bit heavier weight (cotton chino twill) than my FP Harrington, which I will post a pic of for comparison next time I have it on.

Looks great, Willers. Maybe not mod but definitely not lacking in style and practicality.

Good start TFDM. I'd look into hemming those trousers so they dont bunch up at the bottom, and pairing them with another shirt. You have a lot of brown going on, its good to have some contrast. I'd also recommend sizing down on the shirt, from the looks of the body and the neck, its about a size too big for you.

Great jacket Ian. How old is it?

Went out last night to catch a gig by "From the Jam". A good night bar the gig being postponed due to illness  :(  Made the most of it by having a few more beers than I would have usually plus a nice curry too. With the gig now re-arranged for Jan 3rd I've got something else to look forward to in the New Year.

Anyway, went with:
Blue polka dot Jump the Gun shirt.
Grey crew neck Merino x Uniqlo
Brown DNA Groove belt.
Off white LVC Bedfords.
Whiskey Weejuns
Burnt Orange plain socks also Uniqlo.

Cheers Spike. I originally had chosen dark jeans and tan brogues. Whilst a good look it just felt a little "safe" so went with the lighter colour jeans which worked better with the loafers than the brogues.

I think the thread about navy blazers and white trousers gave me the inpiration to try it. Might not be to everyone's taste, but I think it looked fine.

 Great look, Steve. Very sharp.


Went out last night to catch a gig by "From the Jam". A good night bar the gig being postponed due to illness  :(  Made the most of it by having a few more beers than I would have usually plus a nice curry too. With the gig now re-arranged for Jan 3rd I've got something else to look forward to in the New Year.

Anyway, went with:
Blue polka dot Jump the Gun shirt.
Grey crew neck Merino x Uniqlo
Brown DNA Groove belt.
Off white LVC Bedfords.
Whiskey Weejuns
Burnt Orange plain socks also Uniqlo.
Navy Peacoat again Uniqlo.

Steve P looking razor sharp there.

Back to jackets with jeans/cords. Always needs to be approached with caution or you can end up in Clarkson world. Think it usually works better with wool/tweed or boater type jackets and its important that the proportions on both complement eachother. eg no loose fit jeans with a slim fitting jacket. Conversely a looser suit jacket with too slim jeans and you're in South European playboy territory.

If you want another pair, they are called "Back to Berkeley". Apparently, TNF change the colour schemes and materials every season. I have this year's canvas summer version, but I've seen padded and water-proof winter models as well.

yeah cheers - I did some digging on the net and found they were still available. Now to find some on sale in the new year, and then to justify them to the missus when I already have some New Balance, Aigle and Diemme 'walking' style boots  ;D

Steve - I think a Chesterfield is a generic type of coat - style is a bit like the classic crombie. I'm sure someone on here would have a more detailed explanation.

You're right it was Heinz Tomato Soup :D

As Spike said a chesterfield is an overcoat, similar to and sometimes generically referred to as a crombie.  Lovely coat, cashmere/wool blend, bought in about 2007 when Claudio had a shop in Harlesden (?), NW London.
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread

Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Number 6 on December 10, 2013, 02:02:21 PM
But a chesterfield is without concealed placket, right?

You could be right, the DNA coat isn't fly-fronted, whereas Crombies are.  However some manufacturers online are advertising fly-fronted overcoats as chesterfields ???
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Rod on December 10, 2013, 03:56:29 PM
I don't know about hard and fast rules but AFAIK a chesterfield is usually single breasted, fly fronted, horizontal flap pockets, full length (knee length) and characteristically has a velvet collar.  I think they are most traditionally mid grey herringbone but can be charcoal and I suppose midnight and black.

Crombie is a manufacturers name that has morphed into generic use (like Hoover in England and Kleenex in America) for a knee length overcoat / topcoat, usually fitted at the waist, with flapped pockets and a breast pocket.  They became very common in England in the early seventies with suedeheads, who wore them with a red bandanna in the top pocket and sometimes even carried a long furled brolly. Unfortunately a lot of these are cheaply made and crap quality, and the cloth is more akin to a donkey jacket than what you'd expect for a gentleman's topcoat.

I inherited my Dad's genuine Crombie which is midnight blue, single breasted, notch lapels, with vertical pockets and no breast pocket. Doesn't see much use but won't be going anywhere!

Apologies to those who knew all this stuff!!
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: markrulesok on December 10, 2013, 04:34:15 PM
I'm with Rod on this, always thought that the traditional Crombie is chesterfield made by Crombie, and the term 'crombie' just became a general one.

I'd like another, I had a Jump the Gun one but I grew out of it, and some lucky bugger snapped it up on ebay for a very low price  :-\

Forgot to add that my (Dad's) Crombie has exposed buttons too, no fly front.  Will do pics one day.  Crombie of course makes all kinds of coats, not just those thta we associate with 'our thing',  and are branching out into other menswear items too. 
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Number 6 on December 10, 2013, 06:43:13 PM
Rod, I would tend to think the defining characterists of a chesterfield coat is that it is long and fitted. Other than that IMO it can be single or double breasted, with or without velvet collar, dark or lighter coloured (e.g. camel) etc.

Course you're right about Crombie being used as a generic term in much the same way as Hoover.

Your dad's coat sounds nice, I suppose you don't have much opportunity to wear it with the weather in your neck of the woods.

2 cracking outfits there. Particularly like BB's DNA jacket, and GS's Levis - they are amazing, where from?
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: greenstreet on December 11, 2013, 09:52:06 AM
Thanks, mate, they're the 5 pockets 305 I think. Some years ago Levi made this POW check, a tan ones & a sand ones, and I grabbed a pair of each at the speed of lightning. Lucky I did cos they have dissapeared from view.

During the last seasons the sta-prest Levi's marketing (in Europe at last) is the 511 with side pockets. It's odd cause the 511 are my favourite jeans, they fit me like a gove, but the 511 sta-prest instead are ill fitting, too wide in the waist and bottom and mostly in uninspiring colours (the black ones reappear year after year after year, the sand ones alternate with the blue ones, you get the idea...). That said, I've bought religiously a new pair every year and I get them altered to my tastes.

Great stuff the last few posts.

I recently got two Levi's 511 Sta Pressts, in metal (very light grey) and timberwolf (dark khaki). The reason they don't fit well round your arse is that there are no upper rear darts, so I had to get them taken in at the rear centre seam. Material is heavy almost denim canvassy, similar to Dickies work trousers, not as nice and lightweight as merc or the Adaptor ones (which aren't actually poly cotton they are all man made). Will post pics once my life settles down from the big move.

Thanks mate. Is the suit jacket fairly slim too then? I've seen a few around in slim it, 3 button, ticket pocket and always was tempted on ebay but wasn't sure, but that sounds pretty good at the price...

Love the fit ot the jacket & the right lenght of the sleeve, very partial too 'bout blue striped OBDs, they're smart and timeless. Nice outfit, Jack.

Cheers greenstreet. The shirt is my favourite by some distance and can be worn with quite a lot of alternatives. As for the jacket, couldn't really ask for a better fit myself!

Steve - Love those shoes. Missed out on a pair recently on e bay. More gutted now I've seen them worn. Like how the collar sits up on the coat.

I've got a couple of Uniqlo DB jkts/coats in a "stiffer" material for want of a better description. Well pleased with them for the price.

Went out saturday to Go Go Children (Bristol) for a bit of Northern:
John Simons Uni stripe
Brooks 346 sack
JTG Sta Prest
Burgundy Weejuns

How is the fit on the John Simons shirts?

Post by: Jack.92 on December 13, 2013, 10:43:29 AM
Wayne - J. Simons shirts are by no means slim fit however aren't baggy, so allow a bit of room. A fairly typical Ivy fit I'd say, would recommend one wholeheartedly too.

Was having a look at one or two of their shirts. May take a punt so long as they are not a tent.

Post by: Jack.92 on December 13, 2013, 12:47:27 PM
I'm guessing you're more used to a slimmer fit, Wayne? I'd go for it, the quality is as good as I've known.

Post by: NorthStar on December 13, 2013, 01:18:16 PM
Definitely agree that John Simons' shirts are quality - would recommend them to anyone.  A looser fit than say DNA - I wear medium in DNA and sized down to small in the Simons.

Smart jacket Red Steve, is that a vintage Gieves and Hawkes?

Yes it is, but the label simply states Gieves with the usual Royal Warrants etc, which dates the jacket to before 1974 when    Gieves Ltd acquired Hawkes & Co.

I've posted it up before, but it's my favourite Winter jacket so does get a lot of wear.

Post by: babyshambler on December 17, 2013, 08:17:13 PM
They're 'slim fit' but the material is quite lightweight and fairly loose around the thighs and buttocks, but not flabby loose. Just a bit of give, you know.
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: markrulesok on December 17, 2013, 08:33:34 PM
they look really nice, eyed them up in store a month or so ago. whats the quality like?
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: babyshambler on December 17, 2013, 08:43:01 PM
They're a decent quality build. Certainly better made than my Relco's. They're half-lined inside and unless they fall apart before I taken 'em off in the next 3 hours, I recommend them for the £45 price tag.
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: GoldenGaze_85 on December 17, 2013, 08:48:01 PM

Had a couple of bits from Next in the last 6 months and I can vouch for the slim fit stuff being a nice fit! And the quality seems fairly durable. A bit liked they've stepped away from high street tat. Refreshingly.
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Johnrowland on December 17, 2013, 10:48:07 PM
Fair play. I've not been in a Next for a long time as I totally wrote it off and stopped looking in there. Maybe next time I can actually go in with the wife and have a gander rather than waiting outside!
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: babyshambler on December 18, 2013, 07:37:23 AM
To be honest, it was a complete punt. I don't think I own anything from Next other than a pair of dessies, so I was prepared to be disappointed but this time it worked out nicely.

Some nice stuff fellas - I particularly like Mike's suit - I had (have) a similar whistle in a blue chalk stripe that unfortunately no longer fits - and the Mikkel Rude cardigan.

Back to work today after only 2 days off - nothing out of the ordinary, pretty standard day to day wear:

20 yr old Bennie - one of only 3 BS items I own (1 shirt of similar vintage and a twisted tag ocbd) this is still going strong and has a nice 3 finger collar and roll and no uneccesary external labels
Smedley crew neck
Uniqlo selvedge
Clarks
+ Nigel Hall peacoat

Love the db suit Mike..nice slant to the pockets and the fit is spot on too.

Couple of nice Cardigans there Wayne..makes a nice alternative from the usual "V" or crew necks.

Great fit on the Smedley no 6 which to me lifts the look well above standard day wear.

I find the collars on the FP shirts much too small for my liking these days, although the colours work well with the cardigan. Would have to admit to not being a great fan of leather bomber jackets.

Cheers. I just spend some time reading about this project. There is something that looks slightly off on the watch, but I can't say what it is. Maybe the lume dot or maybe it's just too new and too shiny.

I was a huge Seiko nerd, but I haven't been following the scene for the last five years. Although I have a couple of chronos and divers I tend to wear classical normal-sized watches. I guess, based on the outfits you've posted, you won't wear the watch that often. It works best when you dress like an urban lumberjack with raw denim, workwear and military influenced pieces.

Your right about me not wearing it too often...it's much too large to fit under a shirt cuff, and I'm not, or ever likely to drift towards the urban lumberjack look either. I've got a few Seiko's although nothing vintage. I have a SKX007 which is my holiday/beater watch, and a nice white dial chrono.

Post by: Red Steve on January 01, 2014, 11:55:39 PM
Hi Mark, I'll have to dig it out of my watch box and check the serial number on the case. It's nothing fancy, and I recall paying £30 for it (used). I think it came on a cheap metal bracelet, which I swapped for a decent blue leather strap. It's quartz by the way so the time keeping is spot on.

Post by: Rod on January 02, 2014, 02:42:16 AM
Some nice watches there lads. I've always been a fan of the diver style, and that chrono looks tasty too. I've been thinking of springing for a Russian pilot watch called Poljot Journey that looks similar, but was put off when I found its a mechanical wind up watch.

My understanding of Poljot is that all of their movements are mechanical (either hand wind or auto). They have a very strong fan base Worldwide and used to market themselves as Sekonda in the UK a few years ago.

Thanks Steve -quite a chilled  one  this year  because of the  knee injury  I have at the  moment. Seeing a specialist  on the 9th will find out then if I need an op. Still haven't had an MRI so its the waiting game at the mo. hope you had a good one also.

Ah right. I remember Sekonda (adverts by Ronnie Barker) didn't make the connection to Poljot. It's a nice looking watch but I don't know if I can be bothered with winding it whenever I use it as all my others are either automatics which sit in a wonder when not in use, or quartz/battery movements. Still, its far from essential so no hurry.

I was about to rip into you for that first outfit Bobby. I've mentioned this before and will probably harp on it again, but sometimes I wonder if I've accidentally wandered into lumberjacks-r-us.com, or maybe the site should just change its name to smart-casual culture.com.  We don't all have to look like what I've seen described on here as 'identikit mods' (shiny polyester-viscose Merc two-tone suit and badger shoes, etc), but I look at several pics posted lately and while there are a lot of smart outfits with classy components, there's nothing about the whole thing that would make me think that guy was in any way into 'cosa nostra'.

Anyway you have more than redeemed yourself with the second set of pics, which is a near flawless outfit to me, staying true to the undefinable-but-we-all-know-what-we're-on-about look, but with obvious personal touches. The jacket in particular looks great and is making me jealous despite having had some decent luck myself over the years with vintage/eBay stuff. Green is not always an easy colour to build an outfit around and the stripe in the tie with the neutral strides lines up perfectly. It all looks like it fits well too, the elusive 'fitted but not too skinny' look that so many people may aspire to but inevitably get wrong!

I should put my pics where my mouth is and contribute more, but I've been working from home in tracky bottoms most days lately. Must do better! Anyway, ta for posting excellent pics, this is the kind of thing I come here for, looking for inspiration or ideas or just the comfort of knowing there are like-minded people out there while I'm living in this sartorial wilderness!

Cheers Bobby,

I've said before I'm not coming here for a beef so there's never any malice intended but I do enjoy the debate.  I suppose one thing that keeps me into the look after all these years is that its so versatile. Again, without looking like an identikit mod, you can be dressed appropriately for a job interview, the boardroom, the beach, a nightclub, the match, a wedding, the pub, a drive / ride, hot weather, cold weather, young, old, in between ...

There's a few items in my wardrobe that wouldn't be included in the most liberal minded mod's idea of the look (including a leather A-2 pilot jacket - shock!) but not many.  Sometimes I enjoy the challenge of coming up with a mod-inspired outfit for certain occasions, but almost always I can get by. The one hurdle I seem to have trouble with is certain business casual scenarios because I don't like open-necked shirts, and I don't like nor own any button down shirts which probably lend themselves to the open neck look better than spread or point collar. I usually end up taking it up a notch with maybe a square ended knit tie, or taking it down with a long sleeved polo. I've done the open neck look a few times but still feel a bit 'off' - not as comfortable as I would in a more formal outfit.

Open necked shirts, I don't mind that particular look myself but can understand there can be a certain amount of 'Casual Fridays in a bank' if you know what I mean. As for button down shirts, do you not like them because they hold a different cultural weight where you are? (The States?)
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: ianeggbert on January 06, 2014, 10:14:25 AM
I thought button down collars were originally used on polo shirts by the Ivy Leaguers and then adopted by Brooks? I assumed we then imported the look from the US?

I've just stumbled into what was (is) a, quite frankly, a horrible and unpleasant spat that started on the Film Noir Buff site and then spilled over into the Mod Generation forum. As a Brit, and a big Ivy fan I'm sure Liam Mac, bless him, would be appalled

Yes, the first outfit is in no way your instantly recognisable mod look but as I've pointed out in the past I've never been one for following strict rules especially as I've got older.

Cheers Bobby,

I've said before I'm not coming here for a beef so there's never any malice intended but I do enjoy the debate.  I suppose one thing that keeps me into the look after all these years is that its so versatile. Again, without looking like an identikit mod, you can be dressed appropriately for a job interview, the boardroom, the beach, a nightclub, the match, a wedding, the pub, a drive / ride, hot weather, cold weather, young, old, in between ...

There's a few items in my wardrobe that wouldn't be included in the most liberal minded mod's idea of the look (including a leather A-2 pilot jacket - shock!) but not many.  Sometimes I enjoy the challenge of coming up with a mod-inspired outfit for certain occasions, but almost always I can get by. The one hurdle I seem to have trouble with is certain business casual scenarios because I don't like open-necked shirts, and I don't like nor own any button down shirts which probably lend themselves to the open neck look better than spread or point collar. I usually end up taking it up a notch with maybe a square ended knit tie, or taking it down with a long sleeved polo. I've done the open neck look a few times but still feel a bit 'off' - not as comfortable as I would in a more formal outfit.
Open necked shirts, I don't mind that particular look myself but can understand there can be a certain amount of 'Casual Fridays in a bank' if you know what I mean. As for button down shirts, do you not like them because they hold a different cultural weight where you are? (The States?)

I thought button down collars were originally used on polo shirts by the Ivy Leaguers and then adopted by Brooks? I assumed we then imported the look from the US?

Yes, being following that spat too. Refuse to get involved.
About the button downs, I probably didn't put myself across particularly well. I meant the Ivy League look - button downs etc. - here in the UK probably doesn't hold the same cultural baggage as it does in the states. I can imagine the look there can be seen as pretty conservative and boring where as here it still holds a certain amount of glamour and aspiration.

Button downs do have a "WASP-y" stigma about them where I am (on the out skirts of one of the oldest moneyed suburbs in the US, Grosse Pointe, Michigan ) but that's because they're usually paired with pleated khaki trousers, boxy blue blazers with gold buttons, top sider boater shoes, and "novelty" ties.
If you wear them with well tailored, smart suits,  jackets, etc., they don't really come off the same way.
And it's the best way to go open collar, IMO.

It's an interesting question, and I suppose we should be provoked to examine all our minor clothing prejudices from time to time to see if they are still valid. I used to follow a Cary Grant-esque policy years ago of wearing ONLY white shirts for work. It was a huge step for me to get a denim blue shirt to go with a light tan suit I'd bought. I eventually realized I was denying myself the entire spectrum of colour and pattern options so my short rack has a much bigger variety now. But still no BDs!

Back in the revival days I'm sure I had several Ben Sherman or BS clone shirts. I think you're right - reaching back into my memory I think when I came here I saw the BB style shirts everywhere, didn't really get the obsession with 'roll' and they were always in scratchy looking pale blue Oxford cloth, and worn by office drones with khakis in the uniform of the u imaginative.  I don't dislike the prep/Ivy/trad look in itself, after all that look as worn by Jazz and blues musicians visiting England was likely a key inspiration for our look, but something turned me off on BD shirts (even though I can appreciate they can look good in others) and I've never looked back. If I saw the perfect one ...

And on a separate topic, is there an easy way to post pics direct from an iPhone without going through photobucket type places? Of someone can instruct a non techie like me, I may be able to contribute more to this thread, especially when I'm on the road with work. Ta!

interesting debate rising from some pictures - I agree with Rod in so much as some stuff isn't always that 'mod' (myself very much included) but I think a lot of people on this forum wouldn't necessarily call themselves a mod. I know the particular forum is called 'Mod fashion and style' but even if people do post what is perhaps 'smart casual' and not mod, I appreciate it as a place people can post their outfits here, with constructive debate like this, rather than somewhere like styleforum (which on paper is maybe more appropriate sometimes) which does often just become a slanging match...

And on that note, took some pics this morning in the hotel on the iphone and would be happy to post if anyone knows a quick way:

Gray donegal jacket (3 button of course!)
Light blue mini herringbone shirt
Royal blue spotted tie
Blue-gray flannels
Light blue socks
Black longwing brogues and belt
Light blue PS
Amber tortoiseshell Garret Leight shades (should have brought black wayfarers to match shoes and belt!)

Talkin bout cultural baggage, here in Spain the Ralph Lauren logo is associated mainly with posh urban people and stands as a symbol of supreme stylishness for country folks. I know they make some decent BD shirts, but I'd rather not be seen with the infamous rider on the chest (in fact, I own two shirts -not BD- from their now defunct Rugby brand. No logo).
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Rod on January 08, 2014, 10:50:11 AM
Strange innit, the cultural baggage attached to certain brands?
I've heard people back home hate Lacoste because it was popular with hooligans or some other undesirable group? Doesn't bother me, they are the best made polos IMO and that's why I get 'em. I'm not really a brand whore and don't like logos - wouldn't mind if they had no croc on them.
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Red Steve on January 08, 2014, 11:04:02 AM
Back in the day, before the rise of the Far East as a cheap manufacturing base for clothing, I used to have a few Lacoste items including a lovely cardigan as well as polo shirts etc. The last polo I bought (6 or 7 years ago) was very thin in comparison to when they were made in France. I've not bought one since, but the logo wasn't the issue...I just felt for the money you could spend a few more £'s and get a Smedley instead, where the quality is always excellent.
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: greenstreet on January 08, 2014, 05:43:05 PM
It's funny you mention Lacoste, cos it's THE other posh brand par excellence here, but hey I do own 2 crocodile items, one of them a jumper with a geometric pattern (it sounds worse than it looks, in fact it reminds me one of those jumpers R. Lane and Marriott used to wear) and a cotton roll neck in mustard. The polos I think are OK quality wise and even stylish (some of them anyway) but too expensive, Smedleys are in another class.
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Rod on January 08, 2014, 05:48:26 PM
Lacoste polos can be had on sale for arounf $50 here.  Cheaper than Fred Perry and better quality to me.

I'd never really heard of Smedley until somewhat recently.  They seem to be revered by many, but for me I can't seem to justify the price.  Same with Sunspel.  The quality is probably good, but these are casual clothes and I'd rather spend the big bucks on more formal tackle.  Also, Smedley seems to specialise in knitwear, which I neither like nor really have much of a need for.
Title: Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
Post by: Spike on January 08, 2014, 10:43:55 PM
I'm with Red Steve and Greenstreet here. I'm a relatively recent Smedley convert. I don't think any pique/cotton polo is in the same bracket. There's just that something that's indefinibly "nice" about the look and feel of Smedleys.

I'd baulk at paying over £100 for any polo but you shouldn't need to. Pick most of mine up on ebay, usually seconds in very good nick for £15-£30 ish. There are also the outlet sales with big discounts.

^^ think the last one is my favourite one Rod, and nice to see some photos from you now.

Taken the car in for some new brake pads all round and some new anti roll bar bushes. These were advisory notices at my MOT last month so thought it best to get it sorted asap. I bought the parts from a local Motor Factor and used a charity called The Wheels Project to fit everything for me. The charity takes kids who have started to go off the rails a little and teaches them motor engineering skills to help them obtain meaningful employment in the future.

They take donated cars and vans and do them up/service them and then give them to other charities in Bristol that need transport. As well as the hands on experience of working on my car (which the lads really like) I also donated £50. I worked out the job at a garage would have set me back over £100 so a win-win for all concerned.

Anyway had to spend 3 hours killing time in a local McDonalds so quite casual:

I like this for smart caz Steve - despite my comments about BD shirts earlier I can appreciate they look good on others, especially in this type of ensemble (not so keen on them with a tie).

Again apologies for my pics going sideways, I appreciate the tip F-U but on my phone they come out upright so if I followed your tip it would be 50-50 whether they came out right or upside down!  I'll work on it when I have more time but with my proper camera the quality is better when I can be bothered to dig it out.

That's a Braun watch on a mesh bracelet. Quartz battery movement. Bauhaus inspired design. Loads of choice on Amazon:

Love the jacket Dan superb fit. Bought a few nice vintage ones myself recently.

Jonny - probably teaching granny to suck eggs here but there were a couple of lovely small jackets - although double breasted - on BIg Smoke Vintage - run by Tomas on here that might fit you. Fraction too small for me.

Its weird cos when I look on my phone or ipad it's the right way up, but I just had a quick butchers on the laptop and it's sideways!

Anyway can't remember the order number but they are stock Meermin's three holer derbies.I took a picture of the pristine soles, it seems a shame to wear them and scuff them up!  I don't like closed vamp shoes (balmorals) but they do one in their swankier range in a beautiful copper suede which I would think about except I'm not sure when I would wear them.  I have some orange suede bucks that get worn about twice a year.  Remember kids, the brighter the colour the less versatile, the less wear you'll get, so figure that in when you are budgeting for stuff!

Cheers for the compliments lads. Some more nice pics posted today- keem 'em coming!

I can't speak to the longevity of the Meermins as this was my first time wearing them but had them on from 8 am till midnight yesterday, walked about a bit during the day and schlepped through two airports, and they felt fine all day.  I can't get 'Crep' over here but probably need to spray some Scotchguard on them just in case.  The build quality looks fine to me, and the suede is very good.  They are a bit darker and less ginger than they appear on the website (which might be an advantage to the versatility of those copper ones I mentioned if the same is true for them).  When I first upped my shoe game I got a couple of brogues and smooths (gunboats!) with heavy double soles, so it's nice to have something a bit more elegant and although my shoe needs are non existant now, whenever I may get shoes in future I will lean this way.  The price did not include return postage for a pair that didn't fit (I sized down but obviously not enough) and import duty of about $30 which I'm yet to pay.

My Meermins are one full size down from US size, and still a bit room, could have probably gone another half.  But be careful cos they are different from one last to another.

Add to that, some brands "interpret" sizing on their own. Say 41 a UK 7, for example.

Are your Meermins a narrower shoe, too?  I noticed that UK "medium width" shoes are a better fit for my narrow foot that what's considered a medium width in a US shoe... saw a pair of brown suede monk straps on the site I really like.

I would say I have a narrow foot (but high instep hence why I dont wear close toe oxfords, only derbies) and this is a narrow shaped last but these ones fit really snug around the instep. Not uncomfortably so but could be a problem if you have a wider foot.

Yesterday's travelling outfit:

(http://i41.tinypic.com/35d45qa.jpg)

(http://i41.tinypic.com/2yp0spz.jpg)

I violated one of my own rules, which is that if you are trying something new or something you're not sure about make it only one thing so you are secure that the rest of your outfit is fine and you won't be fidgeting and worrying if you blew it.

I don't usually like open necked shirts
I'm not usually into the tweedy professor look (but wore this as its freezing in New York)
I don't usually do knitwear (see weather comment)
I'm not a big fan of brown
Buying these jodhpur boots was a mistake (see weather comment)

Anyway, grey chambray work shirt
Rust cotton v neck
Herringbone tweed jacket
Silk tribal pattern PS
LVC
Tricker's boots

Some of these items will be recycled into today's office outfit.

Cheers lads. This one's a quite thick spongy tweed. It came with patch and flap pockets (a trad detail that I dont much like) which made the lower quarters appear wider than up top, so I had the flaps removed which slims it down a bit.

Jacket's very nice indeed and It's a tough call between whether I prefer the 'casual' outfit (for want of a better phrase) and the 'smarter' (ditto) work outfit... not least as I do like a bit of colourful knitwear in the mix!

Also I couldn't fail to notice the much aforementioned dimple on the tie.... and as it's the exact opposite of a tie-boner perhaps we should call it a tie-CENSORED ON LEGAL ADVISE instead!

If you're on about mine they were in the Hilton Garden Inn on 28th Street in New York. Not the most luxurious digs I've ever stayed in but you can't beat the location!

That's a couple of solid outfits you posted there Bobby. Especially like that DNA jacket.

I like that open collar, Rod  ;) Works well with the casual nature of the tan cotton sport coat.

Not a fan of matching the PS with the shirt color though, at least in that silk material. Cotton or linen would work better with the rest of your ensemble I think

Sounds good, but know what you mean re uploading pics...

However even a techno-duffer like me has now got this sussed!

If you are on Facebook, upload your pics, then open them, right-click, go to properties and then copy (control-c) the source-code/location line

...then back on the forum click the little Mona-Lisa icon and you'll get {img}{img} appear and then you simply paste (control-v) this line of gobbledegook text between them and Bob is indeed your mother's brother!

see if it's worked by using the preview button.

... If you get really good at it you can even put the pics in sideways like Rod!

I've never had the need for a Sherpa jacket but that's a cracking looking example you've got there Neil.

I tried a Breton shirt once from some original supplier and they didn't work for me, not sure why. Maybe it was the boat neck. Yours looks a lot better than mine did. I ended up with a long sleeved cotton t shirt in a very similar style that seemed to work better.

Nothing special just out for a family meal last night.

Uniqlo lambswool wool fleck cardigan
Smedley beige rollneck
M2M micro-check trousers with 1" cuff
Loake oxfords

The static has made the trousers look tighter than they are, poxy new socks!

I really like the look of cardigans over roll necks! Nice outfit.

Got an older Merc crombie at the reggae!steady!soul! market around new year's eve for a tenner and had to wear it today.

Rust Merc crombie
Vintage pattern scarf - rust/brown/beige
White OCBD
Light blue v-neck
Levi's 566 with sewn in 1/2'' turn ups
Red socks
3-eye black Solovairs

Off out on the piss again today and undecided what to wear, my two choices:

Saint James Binic 2
LVC Denim Jacket
Cycling shoes
Bootcut cords
Leather belt with silver square buckle

(http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w314/david_lazar_1978/Mobile%20Uploads/th_photo-20.jpg) (http://s179.photobucket.com/user/david_lazar_1978/media/Mobile%20Uploads/photo-20.jpg.html)

Or

Fred Perry 3 button waffle knit
LVC 1947 501s with 1/2" turn up
Adidas Italia or Japan
Fred Perry Monkey jacket
Andersons blue weave belt

I would normally wear a pair of Clarks desert boots with these jeans but the amount I plan on drinking today that would'nt be a good idea.

I fell in love with those FP monkey jackets. Couldn't find one so settled for a David Watts version which I THINK is a pretty close approximation.

I've got the blue & white version. If I find another one do you want first refusal?

Cheers but I have a nice royal blue FP Harrington, don't think I'd get much use out of a navy zip up jacket. As much as I love the white ones, since I've now spring for the DW (and it wasn't cheap) I would probably only got for a white FP and of it was a great deal then maybe sell on the DW.

I posted previously, the DW material is cotton twill, I was expecting and would have preferred a smoother cotton finish like a Harrington. It's too hot for ANY jacket six months out of the year here, and I have several unlined cotton blazers too, so its more of a want than a need!

I have one of the white FRED PERRY jackets myself and love it but have to watch when I wear it. (Thinks: Any little kids going to be around with snot and Marmite on them? Dogs that may jump up at me? Women who may try and give me a peck wearing make-up? Will I be eating later?) It is a bit of a laugh but mental too as I always consider this stuff before thinkiing of wearing it. Had a dark blue one as a kid 30 years back and wish it still fitted me.
