Not sure it's quite a 'bargain', but noticed End has free worldwide shipping for next 72 hours:

However, they have got Fred Perry long-sleeved tops still in the ongoing sale in three colours for £45 each, which does make it so:

2 shirts arrived yesterday, a bit disappointed really, the cotton is so thin you can see my tattoos. I live in Scotland so I'll be able to wear them on the 5 days a year when its warm enough. I expected something a bit more substantial

2 new outlet stores, Pringle and Aquascutum, have opened in Hackney, joining Burberry. The Aquascutum in particular has some excellent stuff and deals in - got 25% before Christmas -, Burberry isnt as good as it used to be but sometimes some decent stuff. In the next few months a few more are opening, including some Ivy orientated stores - I did suggest to my colleagues in regeneration that Brooks Brothers would be a good addition but no luck! If I hear of any extra discounts I'll let you know.

Some lovely 'Made In Italy' Hackett Cardigans in my local TK Maxx, navy, with grey trim and two front pockets, good fit too. £60. Might be some in your local branch. Also spotted were some Church's Oxford style shoes in brown suede, good size run, for £179 down from £300.

I was in my Local MELBICKS garden centre today. And was suprised to see all 'Cotton Traders' deserts boots for £20. reduced from 40 odd. Every size was available.
I didn't purchase, but the quality was v good, dark Brown, Tan, Blue. allsorts. Better than the sh*t you will find on ebay etc for same price.
Especially when the life span of a dessie is quite short..

For the spanish lads out there. AmazonBuyVip is offering lots of Brook Bros with 70 per cent discounts (in euros that means from 90-100 to 33-37 in shirts).Mainly shirts but some polos, sweaters & cardis too. Oddly, none of the BDs has the back collar button, but there are two or three tab collar shirts (didn't know BB made them) well priced. Lots of sizes too.

Plain were £7.99 and the Paisley £8.99

Worth looking out for in other branches i would have thought!

And I assume its for the shirts you have to pre-order?

They do and hald make some s**te looking shirts.... (the non check patterns)

Not sure how long code lasts for. Not long I guess.
And yes it's for the pre-orders while stocks last.

And yes they produce some s**t, But some checks are from the archives circa 1969 (Well the older ones were at least, not the new batch to my knowledge)

Definitely not cheap.  Had my eye on the reed green oxford shirt, but it was way overpriced at £120!    Just bough it for £60 after the discount, which is more realistic.

I really can't get on with HS. £40 for one of those t shirts is silly even if they are US made.

The guys obviously got good backing and no mention of small runs so the £150 asking price for shirts is a bit of a piss take. The fact that he can afford to slash prices by 50% tells you all you need to know.

You wouldn't catch DNA doing it or Fitzgeralds. They just couldn't afford it and their shirts are cheaper.

If their US factory is the Garland, NC one Brooks currently use I can tell you now you can buy the BB shirts very cheaply at the outlet end. About $15!

I'm all for companies making a healthy profit and I always stump up for quality but more importantly I believe in a fair price for a fair product. I don't think HS offer that at retail price.

In fact I'd feel mugged if I bought one of those nowhere shirts for full whack. They go on about attention to detail.... bollocks. Look at that Beach Boys repro.  It's s**te.

I have a pair similar (also from Hudson that I bought a couple of years ago) which are a lovely holiday shoe/sandal. The soles are leather, so had a rubber one stuck on and they've been great.

I'm a little puzzled with this seller.... A £500 suit down to £150, but available in all sizes? Seems like they massively overprice so they an reduce the cost to what appears a bargain in their so called "sale"

http://www.bosidenglondon.com/store/clothing/sale

This suit is also described as Single Breasted 2 Button Fastening, but is clearly double breasted. Why just a single photo of something they were asking £500 for? Lack of attention to detail puts me off a little. I'd be very wary of buying anything from them.

Bosideng are a very big deal in China , but it's just a "flagship" store in the UK, so I think the pricing is a bit up and down because the store is here for prestige reasons rather than as an actual serious attempt at major UK sales ,  which kind of explains the flip flop in prices  - the packaging is embarrassingly OTT & "luxury", or it was on my trousers.

They aren't quite as tight as JTG -but are certainly slimmer fit than eg Adam of London  maybe they are a bit more 'giving' as well because of the Tweedy wool. Measurements for a 34 - bang on 34 at the waist (so I assume a 32 is bang on 32 etc) about 8.5 inch at the knee, just under 7.5 inch at the ankle hem.

Just to let you all know, the items turned up yesterday. The tie is ok 7cm width classed as narrow but the belt was, in my opinion quite flimsy and not great quality for the money and do will be going back

Sent Bosideng an email about sizing a few days ago and still haven't had a reply. Sorry but it's put me off buying from them. Why have an "enquire" feature on your site if you're just going to ignore enquiries? >:(

I phoned them with a couple of enquiries and have to say the chap i spoke to was most helpfull ie, took a couple measurments while i waited on the phone.

What he did tell me also is that there is a 24 hour free returns policy, that init-self made my mind up to take a punt on the trews.

Fair enough Lurker - I still like the look of those trousers, I might give 'em a ring.

They aren't quite as tight as JTG -but are certainly slimmer fit than eg Adam of London  maybe they are a bit more 'giving' as well because of the Tweedy wool. Measurements for a 34 - bang on 34 at the waist (so I assume a 32 is bang on 32 etc) about 8.5 inch at the knee, just under 7.5 inch at the ankle hem.

Cheers

Lee 101z dry selvedge jeans on sale at asos.com just now - the 23oz version! £85 but use the TAKE10 code and it takes it down to £76.50 which is pretty good for jeans which are usually over £200. Depends if you're up for heavyweight jeans I suppose. I've just ordered a second pair (with winter in mind!). The first pair came with a little branded tin with two spools of thread, an extra waist button and a spare fabric patch which was a nice touch. Most sizes are there - I tend to size down one size for Lee 101z - I'm a 34 but ordered a 33. cheers.

If so it's  a shame as I got rid of a lot of gear that got too tight in the chest about a month or 2 before these boards opened back up. I'd rather it all went to a well dressed young chap for nowt  rather than to god-knows-who for the peanuts most of it sold for on ebay.

I sold one stunning English made tweed jacket in a 35R ( MTM I'm guessing) for a fiver. The feedback said something like "Thanks for the jacket. This is just what I need for my fancy dress party". Words cannot express what I felt reading that. I hope that jacket at least stayed in one piece.

nottingham tk max had a few pretty green things in, but wasn't a fan myself. They had some beautiful covert coats in for 99 quid down from 400 or so though, cant remeber the brand but had all the details, velvet collar etc. Didn't have my size unfortunatly.

Also had some decent knitwear in, hardy amies rollnecks for 25 or so down from 130 if thats your thing, good time to stock up for the rapidly approaching cold weather.

shoes were hit a miss but lots of desert boots of varying price and quality.  had some barker shoes in too. Sure we all know tk max is very hit and miss but seems to be worth a look at the moment

TK Maxx is always worth a look for knitwear. The racks are always full of crew and V neck jumpers, usually without logos. Picked up a plain grey 'cashmere' crew neck for £20 - pretty good quality for the money.

I ordered the yellow and navy and was pleased that the yellow is a more mustard colour which I hoped it would be.

 Got some lambswool jumpers too. Might have to get some of those merino wool jumpers, the mustard does look a nice colour. I was a bit put off by the cheapness of the merino wool jumpers, are they OK quality?

Hi Steve, once again a size question!

I've bought items from Uniqlo in the past (shirts/ knitwear) and whilst sometimes the sizing is ok at others a medium has been almost a large. How do these jumpers measure up mate?

cheers

Hi Ian, I'm a 40" chest and buy their medium in their knitwear and have never had an issur re size consitency. I'm 6' 3" and lenght in arms and body is spot on too. The only one I has a problem with was a sweatshirt which cam up really short in the body. Apart from that I find them great. Macs, jumpers, socks etc all excellent quality and superb vfm too. The lambswool crews are especially nice with a good range of colours too.

I was going to order one of those too Steve, love the 'raphaesque' arm band but the smaller colllars put me off a bit, good job really as I'm totally skint and the mrs would have lamped me one if I'd bought it  :(

Yep, know what you mean re the collar, and when it was originally released at full rrp, I rejected it for that reason, but for less than 40 notes, I can live with it more easily now...and yes the Rapha style "arm bands" helped too  8)

It does appear to be a good bargain. I think they usually retail at around £450-£475. Handmade in Scotland and should last a lifetime.

Yup, proper Macintoshes in large and extra large currently available at Birmingham New Street TX Maxx in large and extra large, at £200. I couldn't believe the weight of the things! Built like Edwardian battleships. There was also a  rather snazzy Blouson style jacket from Machintosh with red, dark grey and light grey stripes (less garish than it sounds, quite subtle tones)  which was (a little) cheaper.

While I was in I picked up one of these jackets - http://www.tkmaxx.com/view-all-mens-new-in/blue-blazer-/invt/23538703 Can't find anything about the Freserik Anderson brand online so I assume they're a cheap and cheerful newcomer, but the quality seems ok for the price. Once I've had the sleeves shortened it'll fit me like a glove.

this was the coat I passed on. working cuffs too, which was part of the issue as the sleeves were too long. But if it fit, i'd have had it in a second. Not for everyone but it looked great.

Nice wool trousers too including a nice checked ralph lauren pair. passed on them too but kind of regretting it. It seems TK Maxx have struck some deals with more premium brands recently, lots of good stuff in. Levi 511's for about 40 notes in lots of sizes, too.

Think they had a few pairs in dark indigo, most in a mid-blue though, didn't notice any trendy fades or that rubbish though so maybe worth a look. The darker pairs weren't my size unfortunatly. These were on their own rack though, probably shouldve checked the jumble sale that is the denim section!

Might be of interest to some: A Gloverall 3 button cotton blazer. £79 down from £200 in various colours & sizes:

http://gloverall.com/shop-item?id=119

I ordered this in gold, it was delivered to me in lightening fast time.

The sleeves have four working buttons (on a ready-to-wear cotton unlined jacket? Why?) and were four inches too long. It was also shaped like a bell tent. Fit me perfectly across the shoulders and chest, but there was EIGHT INCHES to be taken out of the rear centre hem to make it lie flat against my bum.

I contacted Gloverall with my story and they were very agreeable about a refund or exchange, so it has gone back to them. I will be happy to provide an outcome update if anyone is interested, but I would warn anyone ordering from this company to be very wary of sizing.

No problem, Jonny, thinking of doing the same myself. Have bought a couple of shirts from them; there's a little bit of trial and error initially (particularly with sleeve length) but, once you get your sizing sorted, they make a decent work or 'casual out' shirt.

Agree, took two shirts to sort the sizing but now have an excellent shirt.  Depends on the fabric really.  If you get the better cotton the shirt is excellent for work or night out.  Cheaper fabric is certainly substantial for work.

First time I used them, I got the wife to take all the measurements. We were a tad 'refreshed' at the time, resulting in baggy sleeves an inch too short!! Lesson learnt; next time, I took measurements from a shirt that fits well and got a smashing OCBD as a result.  ;)

I'm not sure what the story is with shipping to the UK but there's a shop in New York called Epaulet that does a lot of clothing that I reckon would appeal to many on here. Not cheap but great quality and Matt is a top fella. They have some stuff on sale now and I just ordered their rust coloured wool chinos for $135. Check them out at www.epauletnewyork.com.

Hi Rod, have you ever been charged customs fees from an End shipment? I've never ordered from End but I've heard a few stories of people being hit by customs from one or more of their shipments.

Their sales are tempting but if I'm getting charged for customs fees, then why bother.
Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: Rod on December 02, 2013, 11:11:54 PM
No, had a few things sent from end in NE England to me in America. Fast service, no fees.

I do currently have a bill sitting on my desk at home to be paid for $30 duties owed for a pair of Meermin shoes sent from Majorca. Not happy about it as I know other fellas have had stuff sent here and sidestepped the duties somehow, but what can you do?
Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: detroitmike on December 03, 2013, 12:01:02 AM
Getting nabbed at customs is hit or miss... I think I had to pay 3 times, of all the orders I've done overseas.
I bought 2 suits from the same place (A of L) at different times, one I got hit with a duty fee, the other one, nothing. Some merchants will declare it as a "gift", which avoids fees. Some will pick up the duty charge (I think PG currently does) so check before hand. If they don't have a policy, then you could always roll the dice...

Went for Medium Ross. I'm a 40" chest and fits me really well. I posted a pic on the WAYW thread a week or so ago. The lining is quilted (nice and warm) so a shirt is all that's needed, although it will also take a sweater too as long as it's not a heavy one.

I've also just ordered a brown peacoat from Uniqlo too, but as their sizing (for me) can be on the large side I've ordered a medium and a large .(I always have to size down in knitwear from a medium to a small and like Steve I'm a 40" chest however I am a short arse!)

Just as a heads up on orders over £50 at the moment there is free next day delivery AND I got a discount code for £10 on orders over £60. Not sure it will work again but the code is QU10

As I suspected, their sizing is very generous especially in the arm and body lengths so I'm going to go with the small. The arms on the medium size are at least 2 inches too long for me but the small sits just right and the body is good too

Nice coat for under £40 though!  ;D

9 times of 10 they've been fine, but my 2nd pea coat was delivered to a house on an entirely different street that just happened to have one part of the name in common! Some kind old boy dropped it off by hand after discovering it by chance whilst feeding his son's cat (he was on his honeymoon!).

Just received a pair of these today, W32 L34. They are lovely. The colour is so rich and clean. Only slightly snugger on the thighs than usual W32 in 501 or 508, but overall nicer, slimmer fit, and a bit shorter than usual W34, which is also a blessing as the turn-ups look not so bulky. Also, much more tapered.

If anyone needs W32 L32, it's in my bag. Let me know real quick and I'll pass it on to you to order as this is indeed a bargain.

Hi all

Last year I went to the cobblers and put down £200 on a pair of grown up shoes. Loake Churchill’s (1880 range) in black.

http://www.loake.co.uk/loake-1880/churchill.html (http://www.loake.co.uk/loake-1880/churchill.html)

They may look a bit conservative at first but to see them up close and wear them, they are a classic of a shoe and look and feel beautiful.

-   I have wanted another pair in burnished brown since,  so I can wear them more casually – Recently I found Flannels currently have them for £115 in their sale – now this is an absolute steal (my girlfriend ended up getting me them, bless her)

I completely recommend these. In both colours

http://www.flannels.com/loake-churchill-toe-cap-lace-shoe-111100?colcode=11110005 (http://www.flannels.com/loake-churchill-toe-cap-lace-shoe-111100?colcode=11110005)

Word of advice to anyone thinking of getting a pair though, you may want to find somewhere to try them on first before taking the plunge and ordering off the internet – just to make sure you’re happy with the fit.

in the nottingham one they have bally loafers, a bunch of loake, cheany and barker shoes of different styles all decent prices, and a handful of santoni loafers for 99 quid, which are really really nice shoes. problem for me is not my size  :'( also had a some nice gant shirts and some corneliani blazers that were nice reduced to 70 or so quid.

It claims on their website that an XL will fit a 46" chest. But I'm a 42" and an XL is perfect on me, so you'd probably want the XXL.

Sizing is a bit weird for the 519s, you can take a gamble but i recommend trying them on in person first. I'm usually a 33-34w and had to size up to 36 because of the tight thighs.

Hell they even look way too tight on the model.

Just spent a few days visiting a mate in Nottingham. Dropped into a Retail Park with a TK Maxx and almost passed out. Grabbed four lovely Brutus Trimfit shirts in various checks and a pair of Sperry Top siders. £96 the lot!!!! I know some turn their nose up at shops like this but I am happy to have a look anywhere from a top class menswear store, vintage shop to places like TK Maxx. You really never know what you can pick up and for me I came home pretty happy.

@ GS beware of Persols as I find them to be huge. Got a pair for the missus but she has a massive napper so they suit her!

Have bought them for work, lasted me well personally - not gonna be the sort of thing you'd wear with your best whistle but absolutely fine for weekly wear in my experience. Lasted about 2 years before sole went - but that's partly my fault for not getting the re-soled!

I saw some so called "bargain" Bass Weejuns in TK Maxx yesterday (£40.00), but they looked really awful.
The leather uppers had a very plasticky feel to them and the soles don't appear to be made of leather anymore. The pair I saw weren't made in El Salvador like the recent Weejuns that have surfaced in TK, they appear to have moved production to China! I'd heard that GH Bass were meant to be improving quality not reducing it. The pair that I saw in TK were shocking.

Looks decent that Lurker.

But it causes me to ask why so many ready to wear jackets have such s**te sleeve pitch?  See the ripples on the back of the upper arm?  That's become one of my big pet hates these days. I've tried on some jackets that have sleeves set in a way that the only way to make the ripples go away is to extend your arms out like you are pushing a shopping trolley in front of you. Makes me wonder why they are made like that, and what kind of shape the models are that are used as forms for the design.

Guys this hi eyewear site is very well done, but it has all the hallmarks of a total scam. If you receive any shades they are bound to be fake, you just don't get legit Raybans etc at those prices. I wouldn't touch them with a bargepole, and if anyone has ordered I would contact your bank to see if you can get the payment stopped.

Nowt wrong with either, imo. I'd choose the button through over the polo if I had to choose, but both would do the trick for work. Cheap, too, don't need to be too bothered about wear at those prices

just to stick my 2 cents in, i have a next jumper i got 2 Christmases ago and it hasnt lost its shape or colour, been through numerous washes. I find next trousers fit really nicely OTP for me, decent taper which is good because i have small ankles but quite muscular thighs/buttocks. Think they're stuff is best picked up in sales though, you can get some real rock bottom prices then, probably wouldn't pay what the asking price is for most of the stuff.

Haha just Essex but if we go to anywhere other than a small/local pub in the town we get patted down on entry and I think it would be classed as "sharp". Especially the closer we get to London.

Agree on the pen part..I have a few different ones I carry depending on how casual the dress is. I carry a Pilot Birdie if wearing a suit.

Patted down? Jimminy! Worlds apart from my neck of the woods...but then again I live in a C&C state....I think the most we have to deal with is the occasional metal detector.

i feel your pain mate, here in notts we get the odd frisk but when i went out in london with some mates i got metal detected, then frisked and searched by a bouncer who wouldn't look out of place on worlds strongest man. Took my wallet apart and opened every old receipt i'd stuffed in there. I don't touch drugs but sods law the lad in the group who had a ton of gear on him got in easy. Was a right ordeal. then it was a tenner to even get in, and it was the smallest ropiest 'club' ever
worth it though, got two irish lases numbers, think they were mates, hah  8)

Tuktuk are running a buy one get one free on their bespoke shirt service at the moment (until 30th November). There's no discount code or mention of it on the site though - I found out about it in an email from them. You just have to place two orders and then they refund you the cost the less expensive one. It does work though, I just did it, and the refund's already come through.

I've had dealings with Tuk Tuk in the past with varying levels of satisfaction.
Some of their fabric's are great but I have had a shirt or two with crooked collars which have ended up with free shirts etc. Nice company but as I say, varying results.

Brooks Bros have begun their winter sale. I thought it'd be prohibitive to buy something from them with all the duties, taxes, shipping et al, but I've found out they cover of the taxes and apply a flat shipping rate to Europe (10 € to Spain), so I got this popover for less than 70 €:

Mine arrived safely Lee but thebuggers are taking some breaking in! I normally take a 7 (pixi feet) but have been walking everywhere (including in the house) with a pair of hiking socks on top of my normal socks to stretch them out a little as they are somewhat snug. Getting there now though but a 7.5 might have been the easier option

I'm hoping so Nick as I really like the 70's pimp style which will obviously result in me being tarred & feathered in the fashion metropolis of "market town mid Somerset"!

My only concern is whether I should have sized up from my usual 40 as they do look very fitted. It should be here Monday or Tuesday so will know by then.

Also picked up a pair of these in the Peter Werth sale which arrived today:

Heavy discounts in Gant by Michael Bastian and Gant Rugger in Amazon's My Habit. I'm liking specially two items: This DB madras jacket (not in my size  >:( )

And this (yes, once more) popover. I'm not going to pull the trigger on it cos' the one I'm expecting from Brooks Bros looks a lot like it:

There's some nice BD shirts and jumpers too.
When I look at the  madras jacket I am reminded of one that I saw on camden market pre xmas.

Remember, there's a thin line between the sublime and the ridiculous. Not saying the Gant blazer is sublime, just that I like it, tho' I don't think a DB blazer would really suit me.

OK fellas, strange about the firewall thing. Maybe the only difference is I am coming in from an Irish ISP?

So the shirts arrived and I am really pleased with them.
The quality is great and size wise I am glad I went for the extra slim fit as they would probably equate to a slim fit elsewhere. Any other choice would definitely have required a trip to the tailor as mentioned elsewhere.

I've got loads of CT shirts, use them almost exclusively for work as they hit the price/quality sweet spot for me as long as you get them in their frequent sales.
I don't fuss over them too much as I never take my jacket off so you don't see much more than collar and cuffs, but having had several of their slim fits I always get extra slim now. Glad it worked out for ya.

That is ridiculously cheap. I'm having a hard time believing these aren't knock offs...

Copy like this on their website looks suspicious to me: " Because we sells predominantly online that we are able to provide a service at a substantially lower cost base than traditional bricks and mortar retailers who have to operate many physical stores with high rents, wages and distribution overheads. We don't have these overheads we do not need to charge the same high margins they require in order to sustain their businesses."

Those prices they're charging aren't even the wholesale price of Raybans...
Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: Simon Bond on May 05, 2015, 07:33:55 PM
I don't think the old chestnut about lower prices due to less overheads really works , anymore . In most cases , some of these big online retailers have killed off the high street to the extent that you just pay the regular price for item said at the large online retailer . .

There are enough alarming warning signs in the actual advertisement , more fool him for believing real ray bans could be bought on line for less than lucky/lucky man fakes.

Is this for real? Are the ray bans genuine?

IF you received anything at all they would undoubtedly be fakes.

Would you put your card details into a web site that doesn't look remotely legit and gives you no address or tel. number?  Mate of mine is 300 quid down for naively ordering two cheap Barbour jackets via a similar site. No sign of the jackets, no sign of the 300, and no contact address ?  Stupidly, she keeps trawling these cheap and discount web sites, then asking me if I think it's legit. Every single one has been dodgy.

Yes, Mike, but... 1. the Levi's standars of quality are higher than that of ASOS, (tho' both manufacture outside the States or Europe), I know cos I own clothes from both brands. 2. The Levi's trucker is nicer than the ASOS' one; I, for instance, don't like the side pockets nor the buttons.

Good luck, mate. Seems they make a batch of shirts now and then, and they sell the whole lot online in 5-10 minutes! They have promised to restock some more popovers for the people who got late this time, but who knows. What I don't get is how can they offer such limited quantities at these bargain prices. Moreover, I've read good reviews about the shirts too: 100 % cotton, and of course back collar button, locker loop and box pleat.

I have to admit to really not getting popovers. I appreciate they have their fans (you know who you are) but they just don't look right to me. This may sound odd coming from the person who started the BD and french cuff war of May 2015, but it looks like a t-shirt with a collar to me. For people who are feeling lazy and want to have less buttons to deal with.

Is there any background to these as to their provenance? I can't remember seeing these in any photos of the Small Faces for example and they did nearly every Mod fashion at one time or another. I have only ever seen them on pages of this forum.

I was decked when I read this Trots!

My theory on the recent rush for popovers (I don't even like the name!) is that by now, everything has been done, and a popover provides the chance to wear something a bit different, but not so 'out there' that you'll regret it in the future.

Our friend Sidney is the king of this, with his love for poppers, Henleys (underwear) as outerwear, shirt-jackets, etc.  all of these can be made to look good but to me they are neither fish nor fowl!

I saw another hybrid the other day - a knitted shirt (like picque cotton polo material) made in a button up shirt with barrel cuffs, and the deal breaker for me, a severe cutaway collar.

Isn't the whole provenance of the popover that it was an Ivy League staple?
Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: greenstreet on June 06, 2015, 09:56:04 AM
That's right Charlie. Popovers are indeed an hybrid but not a recent one, but from the age when such things were still well thought of.

Rod, popovers were in fact  workingmen shirts, dating from the 19th century, and they saw a resurgence in the BD shirts golden days -roughly between mid 50s and mid 60s, and they became a Ivy League staple . If they were good enough for a sharp dresser like Miles Davis (he looked cool even with the shirt tucked in!) , then they're good enough for me; but they really were everywhere in the early 60s:

I too prefer a slimmer cut on a shirt myself, Rod, but in the early 60s USA shirts had a much fuller body and I certainly don't dislike the effect on that chap; after all, as I said the key to a shirt's fit is in the shoulders.

Mind you, I'd never wear a popover tucked in, as he does, but I think they've got to be a fulller cut than a regular shirt, just so you can put it on comfortably. He may have tucked in the shirt after seeing a pic of Miles Davis doing the same with his  8)

Picked these basic black leather Chelsea Boots in the John Lewis sale yesterday. Half price at £32.50. Although they're not going to win any awards and they're not the most robustly built shoes in the world, they've got a decent toe shape, are pretty comfy and will do me just fine for work whilst I'm galavanting around dodgy industrial estates!

I was at Sidewinder in London last week and was having a pint with Andy Lewis (Weller's bassist, sure most know that). Asked him why after the quality Hudson Chrome shoes from over a decade ago Weller had designed a clothing range as s**t as the above with nothing worth buying or wearing. He then opened up his jacket to show the label of 'Real Stars Are Rare'. Yeah felt a bit of a c**t.

I think a lot of it boils down to the price tag, some of the gear is perfectly acceptable but when they are charging the equivalent to a bespoke piece for what is mass produced clothing it kind of sticks in the throat a little. It also looks like not a great deal of thought has gone into trying to make the brand stand out in any way, there appears to be no flair or creativity to the range for me.
Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...

I concur . .

For a clothing range so rather uninspiring , I find the pricing a bit out of kilter , with comparable brands . .

Quite frankly , I don't like the logo on the shirt either , deffo something for the younger faces . .

This sums it up for me. The gear looks OK but not special (can't fully assess quality without seeing / feeling it in person) but most items look no better than what you might get in J Crew etc, which in itself is also overpriced but often available much cheaper NWT on the Internet.

And one more thing, just viewing the short film on he website with Weller's sidekick talking about the shirt, and he says its "bespoke" - no it's friggin not bespoke, it's mail order mass market. How can you be in the clothing business and toss that word around without knowing what it means?

I love Bradbury's stuff . I was made to read it at school but I was still reading his stuff of my own accord, after school . I think the film was good but it was a bit of a pastiche of a few Bradbury stories , if I'm right, Syd'. .

Saw the film a lot of years ago, Simon, so I'm not sure. It wasn't a faithful adaptation by any means -tho' the movie was composed of different stories too-, but I don't remember if they threw tales from another Bradbury books to the mix. Anyway, my favourite Bradbury book is still The martian chronicles, another short stories comp, maybe the most lyrical example of the genre.

One of my favourite films with a Bradbury twist , was actually an Italian film I saw with English subtitles . It is about a movie within a movie . People go to see a Western movie and at a point whereby there is a duel, one of the guys on screen takes aim and is able to shoot someone in the actual audience , dead. The film explores some scenarios and at one point Bradbury's The Veldt gets a mention. I can't remember the name of the movie but the Veldt also got some screen time in The Illustrated Man , if I remember correctly. .

I wish I could remember the name . I believe I may have seen it twice but on both occasions I reckon I kind of stumbled into it on returning from pub after a wee sensation and may have missed the title . The last time I saw this was probably about 30yrs ago but it was a great movie. .

I'm afraid you won't need to change your diet, mate. From what I see in the IMDB, Closed circuit started life as a TV movie. The page doesn't even list a spanish title for it, so I doubt it's been screened in my homeland. Thus chances for a DVD spanish edition are remote. If it even exists one it will be difficult to track down.

To GS and Simon - you got me intrigued with your discussion, that combined with loving a good challenge I came across this website that may be of use. Your film is listed and would appear to cost $12 plus postage.......

The site description is:

Closed Circuit (Circuito chiuso, 1978)
ITALIAN LANGUAGE WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
WIDE-SCREEN PICTURE
Directed by Giuliano Montaldo, Italy
While watching a Spaghetti Western a man is shot dead in his seat inside the movie theater. The police seal off the theater and try to track down the killer, but no weapon is found! An obscure thriller starring Flavio Bucci, Tony Kendall, Aurore Clément, William Berger and Giuliano Gemma.

To GS and Simon - you got me intrigued with your discussion, that combined with loving a good challenge I came across this website that may be of use. Your film is listed and would appear to cost $12 plus postage.......

The site description is:

Closed Circuit (Circuito chiuso, 1978)
ITALIAN LANGUAGE WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
WIDE-SCREEN PICTURE
Directed by Giuliano Montaldo, Italy
While watching a Spaghetti Western a man is shot dead in his seat inside the movie theater. The police seal off the theater and try to track down the killer, but no weapon is found! An obscure thriller starring Flavio Bucci, Tony Kendall, Aurore Clément, William Berger and Giuliano Gemma.

I'm afraid you won't need to change your diet, mate. From what I see in the IMDB, Closed circuit started life as a TV movie. The page doesn't even list a spanish title for it, so I doubt it's been screened in my homeland. Thus chances for a DVD spanish edition are remote. If it even exists one it will be difficult to track down.

Sh*t!! Would never thought of looking there, must have a gander.

On the subject of roll necks, what's the forum's views on them with regard to a follicly challenged modernist? My wife told me I'd look like a 6 foot plus c*ck in one, which has, at least subconciously, tainted my view of them. I'm sure I've seen Telly Savalas rocking one, and looking the part. Does Mrs B need trading in for a more stylistically savvy model??  ;) ;D

Doc, I share with you the same, ahem, inconvenience, but that won't prevent me from wearing a cozy wool roll neck this winter with, say, a tweed jacket or a plain Harrington. Look at it this way: we'll look like a walking phallic symbol!  ;D.

Anyway, the Sainsbury's numbers are a steal, but I'm in the market for lighter colours: sand/tan, mustard or even a racing green. Being a seasonal item I'll take a look next time I go shopping, not necessarily in internet.

Gents, I've defied the wife's rather cruel assessment and ordered one of the Sainsbury roll necks in what is almost an irridescent purple (my local store didn't have my size, but I had a good look at them and the quality feels dead on for the price). £15 is a steal for merino wool, great shout from Mutley!!  8)

I'm glad to hear the feedback about the roll necks from someone who has actually felt them cos I ordered the charcoal and purple last Friday after seeing that ridiculously low price - thought it had to be worth the punt.

My only fear as I was doing it was they wouldn't deliver to my part of the world but didn't need to worry on that score as I got a mail from them today saying they had been dispatched.

They are ok , quite soft , maybe a wee bit on the thin side and probably a bit on the large side if the small portion I tried on is anything to go by but merino usually shrinks a wee bit in the wash. .

Post by: DrGonzo2411 on November 02, 2015, 09:05:49 AM
Mutley, Simon's right, they are on the thin side but that, for me, was a plus point as I don't like chunky knitwear and I think I'd find the roll annoying if it was any thicker. Size-wise, I'm a XL in any of their stuff I've bought, so took a punt on that and hoping for the best.

OK so the roll necks arrived today and I have to say all in all I am pleasantly surprised.

Sure they are a bit on the thin side as was mentioned earlier but that's fine as I was primarily looking for some knitwear I could wear under my denim trucker which itself is fitted so anything bulky just wouldn't do. I reckon the purple will complement really well with the darkish blue of the denim.

Well done Woody for the original heads up  ;)

Glad you're happy with them, pal, and I really like that purple shade. Just one question about the length: If you're planning to wear them with a trucker jacket, I assume the sweaters are on the short side; if they are not, are you going to wear them tucked in?

Sainsburys always have a wee gem in from time to time.Last thing I bought was some stripey cotton tees for summer. Hold their shape remarkably well for the price.

Mine was here when I got home, Mutley, and I'm well impressed. Size is actually pretty much perfect, not so tight that your chest hair and raspberries are showing, but not something that might fit a darts player either! Mrs B even praised both me in it, and the colour (I went with the purple). Result all round!  8)

I associate tucked in knitwear as an 8t's jazz-funk thing . In the mid to late 8t's there was a "style " that had evolved from something else and they would dance to jazz-funk music and go around in cars with cb radios . . .they hated Mods. .

Me too. Just bought an absolutely superb one from Mendoza in black. The fit is spot on and wasn't too bad price wise either. They don't list the black on their website (just the grey and plum colours). The weather is still a little too mild to give it an outing at the moment, but I'm hoping once the temperatures drop it will feature heavily in the Winter wardrobe.

They call them 'mock turtle necks' over here, where the collar stands up but isn't long enough to turn over. Usually in cotton rather than wool as they are sometimes worn under a wool, v neck, or even a suit jacket. What size are you?

Yes they are, with a touch of Spandex & Lycra. I like to wear mine underneath a jacket otherwise you can end up looking like the "Milk Tray" man. Problem is, unusually for the UK at this time of year it's so mild that I can get by in just a shirt at the moment.

Not so much a bargain, as the starting point prices are too high to begin with, but the french brand The Kooples is doing a mid-season sale and tho' they're often more miss than hit (too indie/rock chic oriented for my tastes), there are some items that offer a refreshing left field alternative to the classic mod look. Some examples:

Wow, I didn't know M&S had such a bad reputation in the UK, I recall they had a big store in Valencia some years ago and the clothes were decent quality for their prices, definitely better than Zara or H&M. Even now I own one of their  cheap tab collar shirts that I use for work; nothing to write home about but not bad. Their belts are OK too.

Don't think it's the quality of the product everyone is concerned about GS, more to do with your jingly janglies....  :-X

Indeed , their stuff is decent quality . I recently got a very nice ,short-sleeved , OCBD for £5 ! Once I got my tailor to complete the box pleat it was a fabulous fit too . .

C'mon folks, the trunks are on the short side, yes, but they're not a tanga or a loincloth  ;D And obviously they'll have some kind of mesh lining to avoid, ahem, embarrassing sights.

Anyway, no pics in them, it's a promise.  ;).

Gotta agree with you here , recent pricing has been ridiculous and therefore not worth rummaging thru the rails. Although the socks with their vast brand/choice (current faves=urban knit) will always guarantee that I retain some interest .

I'm tempted by this very understated top:

I'm not that worried about the number of buttons. Which I like most is the minimalist design, the classic collar and the slightly lenghtier sleeves.

I concur, I still have a madcap wool/polyester mix l/s polo from a decade ago that's going to survive the rest of my knitwear! They look the part in a rough way, with nice details as a back collar button and a small extra button at one side of the collar. Definitely a nice option if you're in a budget, just don't expect the soft merino touch of a Smedley top. I suspect the 60s everyday knitwear was similar to Madcap's.

I have a pair of Larsons that I got in TK Maxx that are stamped 8 but fit me perfectly though I'm a 7 . I had assumed that the 8 was a mistake and that was why they were in TK Maxx but it might well be an American 8 as these shoes were made in the Republic of El Savador !

I concur, toe shape is what gives the edge to Bass loafers, some spanish brands make better Ivy-styled loafers, but somehow the toe shape isn't quite the same. That said, not so noticeable a difference to go for the Bass ones, they're currently overpriced. I would like to own the made in USA version, or the Rancourts, but I can't justify the expense.

Yes the shape is good but compared to the others they are lightweights and the leather is not of the same quality . . :-\

Doc,

I have a couple of long sleeve merino polos from over 10 years ago that are in great condition with loads of wear left yet.
I love a bit of S&M ;D

Yeah, you can't beat it!!!  ;)

There's some decent knitwear in M&S just now. Picked up a few in the sales. Here's one of them.

Some stores have different items similar to this in different colours that aren't online.

Good shout, Woody, I'll be having some of that! M&S do some decent clobber for the discerning gent; maybe not going out gear, but sharp for work etc
Build bigger wardrobe's Doc! t looks ok I bet M&S have no PayPal option, their clothing lasts though.

Selected Clarks originals on sale at Oi polloi.

They also have Bass Larsons on sale only a 7 though. Anyone know what
the fit is on these as I'm usually between an 8 but some 7's fit me depending on make.

I have a pair of Larsons that I got in TK Maxx that are stamped 8 but fit me perfectly though I'm a 7 . I had assumed that the 8 was a mistake and that was why they were in TK Maxx but it might well be an American 8 as these shoes were made in the Republic of El Savador !

To be honest Woody , I don't think Larsons feel like £100 shoes , I think Loake Princetons are a far better buy. .

Was having this conversation with a few mates the other week. Lots of shoes made much better than Bass (Sebago etc) but Bass still have a nicer shape. Never pay more than £50 for a pair of Weejuns.

I'm a 9 in shoes but always buy a 10 in Bass.

Indeed , Sebago and Loake are in a different ballpark to the Weejuns.

Yes the shape is good but compared to the others they are lightweights and the leather is not of the same quality . . :-\

If I re-place the order I doubt they'll hi our the 40 percent off deal but I'll contact them after the weekend and ask.

Indeed, that is almost identical. As soon as I placed the order I got a message saying thanks for registering. A couple of days later Paypal informed me about unusual transactions on my account. .

I was in the process of ordering 4 items and then I cut it back to the one item because I had basically never dealt with them before . Now that I wont be getting the item anytime soon and based on the fact I've never used them before , I strongly suspect I wont be doing any deals with them in the future. .

A lesson learned . . ;)

I'm putting it down to some electronic glitch . They obviously got some data from me when they thanked me for "registering" (I wasn't even aware that I was "registering") . Somehow, the order never went through but if that was my company I'd be well pissed off if I knew that was happening . .

Whilst some people may have experienced a proper service from this mob, I shan't be using them again, simple. .

Like any other supplier, it's in the selection.

Still like Jump the Gun in Brighton.

Nah you can keep your winters. Piling on layers of clothes then sweating like a fat lass in a disco the minute you come indoors and having to peel it all off.

My idea of sixties Mods was them all aspiring to ride their scooters along the riviera in bright coloured clothes with the sun shimmering off the sea! It's not quite hat picturesque here in Florida but not far off. My only beef weather wise is that we have a brief mild winter then months and months of hot summer so I don't get much chance to wear one of several lightweight jackets I have cos you rarely need the extra layer.

Having to take a coat off...yeah thats a lot of effort :o  The hot weather makes you sweat too mate.

Spent 2 weeks in Florida last summer. Had a nice time but I seriously couldn't live in that climate for too long.
Spent most of the time in shorts for comfort.
1. I don't look good in shorts
2. I love waking up and planning my clobber. Jackets,coats,slip overs,boots,scarves,hats etc during winter months.
3.I sweat like Peter Crouch in an Indian Restaurant.

I don't know if this can qualify as a bargain, at 65 €, but it's not expensive either, considering it's a Ralph Lauren shirt. If you like Ivy League style, then it can float your boat. A patchwork madras s/s number spotted in Yoox. It's pretty much the same pattern of a RL shirt I purchased in the sales, with 3 key differences: mine was a popover, had a back collar button and (at least that's what the tag states) it's made of bleeding madras.

Loake brown loafers £50 Norwich TK Maxx. Alas not in my size.

Went in River Island the other day and saw some oxblood leather chukkas with crepe sole for £20. Thought, I'm having them. Tried on a size 10 and they fitted like a glove. Goes to the checkout and got my card out. The checkout girl says oh, one of these is a 10 and the other is a 9, what size do you want?  10 Please! She went and came back and said they don't have size 10s and these are end of stock. Gutted!

I wonder if someone is walking around with an odd pair and hasn't noticed?

Generally, most people have feet that are different sizes and that pair probably fit someone a treat. . ::)



Can you just confirm if the left or right was the 10. . :D

As I know there are some fans of hooped tops here, I've seen these beauties heavily reduced at Yooxs (49 € with free shipping). I can vouch for the quality, as I own the pale blue one. They're 100 % cotton and Made in Italy by 8 (Yoox's own brand).

I guess you are between an M and an L, Steve. Maybe you should try the L for a not-so-snug fit, but I'm unsure when pondering sizes bigger than mine.

Anyway, dunno why but I see they have excluded the tops from the 30 % reduction, so they have returned to their usual price of 72 €. I guess they've been reduced just two days!! Keep an eye on the yoox webstore, tho', as reductions are frequent. As with Armor Lux, if you're persistent you get huge bargains in the long run.

Seen some really nice rain coats and overcoats but at six feet one they barely reach past the crotch and are pointless to me.

It looks like one of their standard fit polos, so XL might be right for you, doc. If I'm not mistaken, their "sports" line (the ones with the logo in the chest) is slimmer. I'm in the opposite situation, when it comes to Smedley's boxier shirts nothing but XS fits me  ;).

I've ordered one myself. Not sure the exact name of this one but the collar shape is similar to a few I own already so it was worth a punt. I take a Medium in JS and I'm a 40" chest. I reckon the large would fit a 42" and the XL a 44" maybe to 46"? When I ordered mine they had small, medium, large and extra large. Guess you missed out on the XL?

I ordered both the RL Madras pop-over & the JS which duly arrived this morning.

Have had a good look over both items and they appear to be in A1 order. I'm sometimes concerned that TK Maxx buy in factory seconds or slightly damaged & returned stock, but that certainly isn't the case with both of these. Whilst neither were outrageously cheap they do represent a good saving over the rrp.

I have picked up a couple of Smedley items from in their stores , over the years and never had a problem . However , I bought a Smedley from Secret Sales once and it developed a couple of small holes after the first wash , so something was probably going on there. .

I'd look at this as more of a "car coat" which is generally accepted as being shorter, as opposed to a full on overcoat, but yes I know where you're coming from on the prevailing existence of the shorter look. Still represents a good deal for someone though.

Two wardrobe basics: first a polo for the upcoming summer (well, down here it's summer weather since some weeks ago ), in 3 colours (the others being black and white, if I recall correctly). It's Yoox own brand ("8"), made in Italy 100 % pique cotton, yours for 31 € (and they charge no shipping costs now, I think):

(http://i.imgur.com/LbdmR84.jpg?1)

And maybe someone here remembers this top (I posted it before and even bought one in a different shade of blue; after some wash'n'wear I can vouch for its quality tho' I'd advise to size up if you're in doubt); now yours for 45 €. Brand is the same as the polo, made in Italy 100 % cotton too:

Hutton are reducing heavily their last pairs of dessies in stock so they can get rid of them. The dark ones have a 40 pounds discount, while for the sand ones it's up to 50 pounds. At those prices I wouldn't doubt it, they're by miles the best DB you're likely to find, I'm pretty happy with mine.

The codes are:

LASTFEW40 for the Havana model, and
LASTFEW50 for the Acorn model

M&S have a selection of interesting summer shirts in at the minute. Lots of button-downs in checks, stripes and plain, plus some linen and chambray numbers. Most don't look to have much by way of a collar roll but if, like me, you're looking for altenatives to shirt and tie for work, then worth a nosey. Starting at 15 nicker too, which can't be bad

A pity the collars are a tad too small in most cases, even for a tiny chap like me. Some of them, on the other hand, have nice Ivy details like locker loop, back box pleat and the back collar button. They're really a nice option as everyday shirts, as they're 100 % cotton.

Like most on here, sidney, I'm a fan of a decent collar roll, but it's not something I get overly hung up on for work wear. Like you say, 100% cotton and cheap; there's a store close to me, so I'll definitely be having a look

Living Stateside, I guess the link won't work for you, Rod.
There was a pic of a navy one too, but oddly the website didn't offer that option, just white. Anyway, it's 100 % cotton too (pique fabric, if my eyes don't fail me).

Cheers Michael for the heads up on the Sperrys. I nabbed a pair in off white in TK Maxx a few years back for twenty quid and although very nice won't pay the sort of price they usually go for if I am honest. However £25 is a touch so thanks again. Got the blue.

Good shout, Rod, fair prices and a nice site. I'm through with breton tops, tho', with at least four variations of them (short sleeved, 3/4 sleeved, blue stripes, green stripes, polo collar, thick wool sweater...) in the closet.

Besides, in a month I'll be back in the atlantic coast of the french Basque Country, and nearly every clothes shop there displays all kinds of cheap breton tops, in case I change my mind. I remember that 4 or 5 years ago you could buy well-made striped breton t-shirts in Saint Jean de Luz for just 5-10 €.

I just removed my post cos it was a bait and switch. You only get the bogo if you order 'classic' shirts. I e-mailed the company saying that's not what it said in he title of the e-mail and got a load of attitude back from them so they can suck it.

Well, you can always browse through the Armor Lux site; besides Saint James (btw, I think SJ have an US webshop), they're the bosses when it comes to breton clothing, and their sales are pretty good.

Post by: greenstreet on July 02, 2016, 09:07:41 AM
My G9 needs a replacement, but I refuse to pay the crazy prices they ask for, even in the sales. I bought it 9 or 10 years ago and full price was 150 € or less. When Baracuta changed hands (to an italian company, if I'm not mistaken), prices skyrocketed for no apparent reason, given the quality and fabrics of the basic models didn't change. I'd rather invest in a Gloverall jacket or coat.

That's the main setback when buying online, I've heard similar complaints about Yoox and other companies I've bought from. So far, I've been lucky, but who knows. Anyway you can always send it back. I'm mainly concerned with sizing issues, but an XS size usually fits me well.

As I know there are some fans of hooped tops here, I've seen these beauties heavily reduced at Yooxs (49 € with free shipping). I can vouch for the quality, as I own the pale blue one. They're 100 % cotton and Made in Italy by 8 (Yoox's own brand).

Now retailing for 29 € (no shipping costs)! I don't think price gets lower than that.

We were down in Brighton for the weekend. Usual shops both new and vintage but I rarely frequent the above. However they had some more than decent shirts on a rail outside. Almost 4 finger collars and decent rolls on them too. Back button, loop and pleat. Decent fabric and only £12 each or two for £20. To be honest I would never normally look at the shop as it is mainly vintage denim and dungarees but they seemed a nice bunch and for that price you cannot go wrong for work, knocking about or for a person on a budget or a youngster.

FLIP in Long Acre of Covent Garden was an old haunt of mine. Loved the smell, the clobber and the music and stuff. This place wasn't as good as that but decent enough. What a score that was on the glasses mate. Won't get ones like that nowadays.

Here was a 'Flip' in Newcastle back in the eighties that I used to love to visit although don't remember unearthing any great bargains there. I think at one time there were a lot of those lightweight sharkskin sports jackets imported from America but I never got lucky with size etc. my mate once got a corduroy and sheepskin Roddy Frame Aztec Camera car cost in there!

The shop survived long after the original Flip in London went under but I think eventually it's gone. The one in London tried to rebadge itself as 'Phlip' IIRC but it's been a long time ago.

There was also a stall in Kensington Market named 'Strip' that was set up on a similar basis. I heard that the market was no longer there which is another part of my youth gone, that was one of my first ports of call whenever I was in London. Even some great non-Mod stuff on display. Ex Mod Lewis Johnson had a stall which sold beautiful 'La Rocka' bike jackets - not by bag but nice to see. (Remember George Michael's 'Faith' video?) with snakeskin Chelsea boots as worn by Billy Idol in the 'To Be A Lover' video.

OK I'm getting way off Mod topics here and into the golden days of my eighties youth. Point being, it's always sad when these one-off quirky shops go under. There were several similar ones on Broadway in Greenwich Village New York, which sadly have all been replaced by Gap, Banana Republic and other generic corporate giants.

Lloyd Johnson of course. Louis Johnson is the bass player in the Johnson Brothers ('Stomp', 'Strawberry Letter 22') who was part of Quincey Jones' back up band and played on all the golden era Michael Jackson songs before he turned himself into a space alien.

Johnsons's shops have all gone. Kensington Market doesn't exist and his shop on King's Road is now a laundromat but he turns out a few iconic rocker jackets (strange for an exalted ex Mod) including a nice looking black leather trucker jacket that is outrageously expensive.

If you check for the Hardy and Johnson thread on Talk Ivy you'll see what LJ is up to these days.
Bought a t shirt from his shop on Kensington Market early 80's on my first visit to that London.

I see he's doing business via Facebook so I'll have to have a butchers when the missus is on as I'm not a member.

He must be playing both sides as in the eighties he had nowt to do with Ivy and was turning out beautiful rocker style bike jackets for goths with skull embossed studs. He has a much reduced website now www.larocka79.com where you can see the leather trucker and buy it if you have 800 quid spare! I always associated him with this kind of tackle so was very surprised to see him mentioned in a lot of Mod history as a purveyor of Mod style in the sixties.
Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: Woody 64 on September 03, 2016, 03:23:00 PM
Playing for both sides...nah he's making a living from the clothing industry which must be hard even in the best of times,fair play to him.
Just as you probably had nothing to do with the Mod scene for 30 years Rod,he's allowed to plough his own furrow.

If you dig a bit deeper you can find out more about LJ and his various businesses over the years.

Post by: Rod on September 03, 2016, 08:30:23 PM
Oh I'm not mad at him - do what you've got to do to get ahead. I was just surprised a bit as I'd always associated him with the exotic fifties-influenced biker jackets he was famous for putting out in the eighties, one even had 'Rockers' Revenge' painted on. It wasn't till more recently I found out he was a key player on the scene in the early sixties. (Mind it seems he nashed off to Sweden with his bird and might have missed out on a couple of years of the golden age, but it could well have been worth it!)

Rod, there's still a Flip in Newcastle, above a shop down some side street in the centre of town. Never been in though, should have a look one day just to see what they've got. I remember the original one having racks of seersucker jackets in the very early 80s.

Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: Rod on September 04, 2016, 11:42:49 AM
Great post Mr B. I think the one in Cross Street is where I used to go, walking up Pink Lane from the station and emerging there. McKay's music shop on the corner with that wizened old hippie who has been working there since about 1980! Kard Bar was across the street and I'd go in there to pick up a copy of Viz when it was still being turned out as hoc amateur style. Scorpio was on the corner of Newgate Street which sold those great Robot shoes (a bit like Gibson Jam shoes but with thin Dr Marten soles.) and I'd pick up a pair of Kung fu shoes in the Chinese supermarket to wear as slippers. 

Last time I was in Flip it had moved round the corner to a smaller upstairs joint which might be where it is now. I felt really sad at the time, as if yet another signpost of my youth had been taken away. We are planning a trip home next summer so if I get the chance to nip in there I'll report back, but my expectations are low.
Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: Mr. B on September 04, 2016, 07:13:55 PM
Aye it would've been the Cross St one, used to go in there myself now and then, only place you could get a genuine MA1 in the Toon. Sadly Kard Bar burnt down completely last year, the old fella who used to run it since its Handyside days lived in a flat on the top floor of the building and died in the fire. They still had loads of stock from the 70s and 80s but of course it was all destroyed.

Scorpio is still on the go, they're inside the Grainger Market now still selling pretty much the same gear, DMs, wedgers etc.
Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: Rod on September 05, 2016, 12:33:16 AM
Awww no, sad to hear about Kard Bar. Like I say love those quirky one off shops and loved to go in there and peruse racks and racks of lapel pins and military badges on the revolving glass thingy. Sorry to hear about the owld fella.

I've been in the new-ish Scorpio with the wass DM boot statue outside. Some decent stuff in there. They must have moved ages ago when that corner of Newgate Street where the Mayfair used to be got rebuilt. Saw many a gig in the Mayfair in my yoof,  including The Cult, Spear of Destiny, Gil Scott-Heron ... golden days!

Popped in to the Lowry Outlet in Salford earlier, and the Flannels outlet is closing down - with 50% off all marked prices.

A lot of shiny stuff with writing on, in the main - but a few gems.

Was tempted by this Mackintosh raincoat, down to £150, but it was just a bit snug.

Early sales in Reiss. The brand's overprized to begin with, so don't expect huge bargains, but there are 2 or 3 numbers that stand out, like the polo below or a decent suede trucker jacket under the 400 € mark (for gents on a budget you can have the Adaptor Clothing model for half that sum):

That suede trucker is beautiful, sidney, but it's too pricey for me. Especially with St Nick just around the corner!

Post by: ross-wfc on December 20, 2016, 12:18:24 PM
I tried the suede trucker on at Heathrow earlier this year. It is indeed beautiful, the 2 down sides are the price ans the fact is has Reiss stamped on the fastening studs. I am taking a chance that it comes down still further in price after Christmas before i pull the trigger.

I know that greenstreet, in reality i'm hoping i don't get it as i'm really waiting for Levis to bring one out again. They only have a Sherpa one at the moment. However if i do see it in my size at around £200 i will buy it.

What size are you?
I have a tan one by Levi's. The one with the leather collar. It's a medium but it's a bit small for me. I ended up getting one from Asos (flagged up by someone on here) which might not have the Levi's bragging rights but fits me much better. I barely wore the Levi's one and even had the leather collar made a bit smaller.

Someone make me an offer I can't refuse or else it's going on eBay!

You might be lucky, as Levi's has been offering a suede trucker jacket each year since at least 2013; it could be a dark tan with suede collar next time, who knows. If they don't raise the price, it'll cost you approximately 400 €.

Spotted these shirts today, well worth it for any mod/ Ivy League fan on a budget.

Nicely made but cheap oxford shirts from Sainsburys (yes sainsburys). Might be worth sticking up as a news item or in the mail out? Nice collars, back collar button, pleat and locker loop. Also decent fit. Well worth it for the money.

I picked a few up. One bengal/ college stripe for work and teh butcher stripe to wear under a Letterman jumper.

Also a lot of suede loafers and driving style shoes from £20 to £30.

I'd seen them discussed in an Ivy enthusiasts' forum, but I'm not so keen over the colours: black is a no no for me (on a jacket) and that kakhi/olive doesn't seem too inviting, to be honest. Besides, it looks as even the XS size is too big for me.

Their summer lightweight jacket (see "What's the last item you've bought" thread) looks better, IMO. But for those prices, if I needed a summer jacket I'd give it a go.

It wasn't a very original logo either, other brands had big stars on their clothes. At least if you bought something with a giant crocodile all over it could only be one thing.

Absolutely ridiculous pricIng on most of their tackle. 150 quid for what seem like unremarkable ordinary cotton shirts. How do you justify that unless once you handle them you can tell the twine was rolled on the knees of virgin maidens or something? Also no three button jackets!

I bought a pair of the parallel leg troos at the Jam expo in Liverpool last year.Got them for £90 from Nikki Weller who was selling gear in the shop. Really nice summer troos.Love the cut and the turn up at bottom.A wee bit different and they will be the template for any I get made in the future.

They seemed to price most of the stuff in the same bracket as Pretty Green,which seems to be doing well.Slightly different market I suppose.
Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: greenstreet on May 26, 2017, 10:33:12 AM
Pretty Green designs are more overtly retro and you easily find their clothes reduced, which imply two things: first, their distribution deals are better than that of RSAR and second, they cater to a younger "modish" audience than Weller's business. From my point of view, Rod and Mark are right: overpriced and uninspiring clobber, tho' I'm sure the stuff is well made.

Naw, I'm happy with everything I bought from the site over the years... besides, right after I got the email they were shutting down, there was nothing left in my size....

Same here Mike was interested in buying another couple of pairs of troos.

Are you the Laird's American cousin? ^^

There's a 30% discount preview sale at John Smedley right now, but tbh nothing in their current range excites me that much, and for basic pieces their outlet is enough.

Unfortunately, lack of detail is appalling: diminutive collar, no trace of back pleat or locker loop, ugly button placket... I'd spend some more -not necessarily much- money and get me the real thing. Hollister is the rage here among kids the age of my son, ie pre-teens (& teenagers too).

Sales have begun early at Reiss, a mid-quality brand that usually offers a large selection of wardrobe basics, especially polos and tops, but with a couple of interesting pieces with a 60s vibe every season, as this cardi with suede details:

(http://i.imgur.com/YWxIBaT.jpg?1)

This other "basic" cardi is a good example of their understated approach:

Don't expect bargains, however, as Reiss' regular prices are quite steep.

Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: greenstreet on June 14, 2017, 03:50:26 PM
There's a good discount on this one, Woody, 70 € from 130, almost half price. A good thing about the Reiss sale, tho', is that if you're patient the prices continue to drop.
Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: greenstreet on June 14, 2017, 04:13:06 PM
Another early sale comes from french brand APC. I know they have lost some of the "mod appeal" they used to have, and this season there's not a single piece as gorgeous as the "trekkie-nerdy" (Claudio dixit  ;D) cardigan I got me last year, but they still make stylish clobber. Two personal picks at half the regular price (if I had the money, I wouldn't doubt buying the mac, tho' it may be too short for some)

And a cord popover:

Some brands that aren't targeted squarely to mods or 60s buffs offer in their sales some interesting pieces. Suitsupply, to begin with, don't even do sales, but their cotton and linen polos are reasonably priced (60 €) and they have the classic 3 button placket look:

Cotton polo...

(http://i.imgur.com/OKzqUqD.jpg?1)

.... & linen.

(http://i.imgur.com/3R10P24.jpg?1)

With Reiss sales (already mentioned by me & leeboy) you have to be patient, as the big discounts come late, but this polo collar cardi has already gone down from 130 to 50 € and you can still find it in all sizes:

(http://i.imgur.com/8X6J4T8.jpg?1)

And 2 numbers from COS, a brand I like for their minimalist approach to clothing, shame their sizing is inconsistent (& often too big for my tiny frame):

This take on the hopped top is now 45 € (from 95, if I'm not mistaken)

(http://i.imgur.com/sP7gVNb.jpg?1)

And even better this understated piped cotton top (just 35 € from 70):

I know the brand, Woody, british owned with products made in Spain. Those mesh espadrilles aren't my cuppa, tbh, they are dangerously close to what's seen here as pensioners' footwear. The real spanish espadrilles look like this:

(http://i.imgur.com/TBf8UeB.jpg?1)

I wear them - only in navy, white or burgundy- as slippers, to knock about at home or at the beach/swimming pool come spring/summer and they're deliriously comfy. Abominations such as sandals or flip flops are forbidden in my wardrobe.

Don't spoil Woody's fun! Sound advice, tho'; used to Scotland's rainy weather, it's easy to forget skin protection and try to get as much sun as he can stand  8) Enjoy, Woody.

Mr. Bond, poolside-wise I'd recommend balearic abarcas, waterproof and way smarter than flip-flops.

Give us a shout mate!

I know there's an outlet mall on I-4 near Disney which a lot of people have mentioned. There's a similar one nearer me on Grand Cypress Drive just off State Road 54 at Lutz which is probably the same owner and same shops but likely much less attended so possibly less picked over. I know there's a Bass shop in there among most of the 'mall brands' but remember:

1. The real bargains are few and far between IMO, (although compared to U.K. prices stuff like Levi's are problies a lot cheaper), and
2.  As I mentioned before, a lot of these brands like J Crew, Brooks Bros etc have their own cheapo lines that they put exclusively in the outlets and never appear in the 'real' shops so it's not like you're getting a bargain on lower priced swag from last season, more likely the price is lower than what you might expect cos the quality and origin is much cheaper.

Aye I think due to the exchange rate there won't be many bargains about. Lookin for a pair of Bass moccs or mocc boots. Will hit Brooks bros also to see what they have then round to yours for a Mackem dole whip!

They are value for money but I tried a pair on years ago and felt that the shape wasn't right and bought another pair of Clarks instead. .
I remember up until  about the early 8ts there seemed to to a few decent brands of desert boots , where did they all go ?

In fact, some spanish companies still make no-brand DBs for small neighbourhood fortwear stores and they're are cheap as chips (20€ or so); decent for everyday knocking about but made of what we call "serraje" (kind of a rough, inferior suede) and usually with plastic soles instead of crepe's.

Passing by a branch of River Island I was surprised to see a couple of Mod-friendly polos in the window:

(https://riverisland.scene7.com/is/image/RiverIsland/302433_main?$CrossSellProductPage514$)

(https://riverisland.scene7.com/is/image/RiverIsland/302433_rollover?$CrossSellProductPage514$)

(https://riverisland.scene7.com/is/image/RiverIsland/302431_alt1?$CrossSellProductPage514$)

£22 and acrylic/viscose so not sure if this can be classed as a bargain (!) as Smedley polos can be snapped up from the outlet for a few quid more  ;)

Browsing the online shop I also came across this which is a bit more interesting/unique with a bit of a vintage cycling top vibe:

(https://riverisland.scene7.com/is/image/RiverIsland/302428_main?$CrossSellProductPage514$)

(https://riverisland.scene7.com/is/image/RiverIsland/302428_rollover?$CrossSellProductPage514$)

£25 and again acrylic/viscose.

Caveat - I haven't seen these 'in person' so can't vouch for the fit/quality :)

By the way, there are more "mod" polos & tops in the RI website, among them:

(http://i.imgur.com/6bBtDdd.jpg?1)

(http://i.imgur.com/hOz9OTX.jpg?1)

To be honest, the man made fibres and the micro-collars lessen their appeal for me (and what the hell is "muscle fit", a gay porn movie?), but they look decent at these prices.

Oddly, this Franklin & Marshall t-shirt, from the same website, is more successful in suggesting a retro vibe, IMO:

Unfortunately not but at least this lends it a bit of 60s authenticity! :D

The first two, the 2nd in particular, look like they could have been copied from old St Michael polos.

Agree with all of you. Not bad. Pretty cheap and certainly have a 60s/Mod vibe. Collars a bit small for my liking but as we have oft discussed good for young lads starting out or for older blokes on a budget or whatever. The whole acrylic V natural fibres thing is funny though. I have plenty of Fred Perrys and ART GALLERY tops that mimic the vintage styles but are comfortable to wear. However despite having quite alot of 1960s jackets and shirts have never managed to get a vintage polo that either fits, I can afford or like. I got one a few weeks back and wore it down to Brighton at the weekend for one of the days. It is lovely and from the US store JC PENNEY but it was a killer to wear. Horrible itchy, boiling hot and at one point thought i was about to spontaneously combust!

Those all look decent enough for the money , the collar being a bit of a let down perhaps . .

Collars are where Smedley score the points in my book along with the merino of course . .

Even so, I think some of last years' collars on Smedley polos verge on the small side, particularly their "sportswear" line. Fabrics, of course, are good quality, but prices match them.

Natural fibres are the best option to wear in humid/hot weather, so I tend to avoid man made fabrics. That said, acrylic was the rage in the 50s/60s -new, cheap, no wrinkles, etc...-, so chances are the vintage tops on offer have at least a percentage of polyester or the like in the mix. As long as that proportion isn't higher than 50 %, I guess it'll be bearable to wear in hot weather.

For the reasons stated, I'm not usually a buyer of vintage jumpers or polos, but I got me a few years ago a white round collar top that's made of wool and it's pretty comfortable in a moderate heat.

This top I bought is bloody lovely. Dark green with cream and yellow striping. Fantastic dagger collar with three buttons and a small restraining button under collar too. Fantastic condition and only £25. However having given it a wear, and despite some very nice observations and comments from folk in Brighton, I am scared to put it on again. It was a horrendous experience akin to wear a vest made of hot stinging nettles!

The finnish guys that run Lean Garments are closing shop and the last batch of BD shirts are reduced to 50 € (plus shipping). I own some of their numbers from past seasons and the quality is top notch. These last ones are apparently made in Portugal, with the usual Ivy details (locker loop, back collar button, box pleat), mother of pearl buttons and a thick oxford cotton (linen in some cases) and come in white, blue, grey and red/pink. The main drawback for me is the collars, that look smaller than the previous ones. Anyway, a quality shirt for 50 € is a good deal, IMO.

I guess they tried to upscale from amateur (everything began for them as a college homework, if I'm not mistaken) to professional clothes' dealers and they failed or just got tired. For one thing, they lost the niche market they had (Ivy buffs, modernists...) without appealing to a broader one. Offering just some plain BD shirts didn't help. And maybe they didn't interest investors in the business.

I realise we are all about the details but I don’t get the common aversion to side pockets on a trucker jacket. Most truckers seem to have them (all four of mine do) and in any case they’re very subtle as well as useful.

Maybe it’s not much different to my hatred of chest pockets on a shirt, or friggin box pleats. Grrrrr!

30% discount at John Simons with code WINTER30, just today and tomorrow. I know 30% seems a meagre reduction, but things get interesting when you take into account that the discount applies too to already reduced ítems (for instance, the golfer jackets, the Harringtons or some BD shirts end up costing 50 or 60% less than their original price tag).

For those living outside of Britain, a word of warning: the shipping costs are outrageous, for no understandable reason (after all, I think JS uses Her Majesty's post).

Just ordered this pink striped shirt with 30% off the £49 price  http://www.johnsimons.co.uk/candy-pink-button-down-shirt/

Not often I order anything in a small size these days (unless its from Uniqlo whose sizing is ridiculous at the best of times) but looking at the measurements (I'm a 15 1/2 inch collar and 40" chest) the medium would be too big.

Fingers crossed!

Never been on the J.Simons site before and no plans to return soon , thought the gear looked uninspiring . .always think a bargain is only a bargain if it is something you really want. .

When is the next DNA sale. . ;D

You won't be seeing that in a loooong time. Now seriously, IMO JSimons stock a well curated selection of clothes, that is, if you like your mod gear with an Ivy League slant. Their own brand shirts are quality, with all the right details and a classy assortment of colours and fabrics. The grey flannel trousers with frog-mouth pockets look very nice too (tho' the smallest size is a 32") and the casual jackets -Harringtons and golfers- are beautiful. Their collaboration with US shoemakers Rancourt is also spot-on, some of the most gorgeous penny loafers I've ever seen.

Maybe you find the knitwear somehow dull -Art Gallery Clothing they ain't, that's for sure-, but I'd gladly wear most of their stuff.

Cheers, Ian. You're a men with taste, as I was tempted by the same shirt you've acquired. If it helps, everything I've bought in JSimons is XS sized (as in Uniqlo) and the fit is good (I'm a 14 1/2 collar and 36" chest). The concept "Slim fit" is at odds with their philosophy, so I'm pretty sure you've got it right.

Well, it's not a proper sale, but Claudio has filled lately his sales section, mainly with shirts but with the odd jacket and shoes too. I'd never seen so many DNAs ítems discounted, so I advise you to take a look (shirts' prices range between 30/40€).

I have ordered two seersucker blazers from Uniqlo. Don’t know if I’ll keep both. One was dark navy, the other a similar colour to that. I’m away in Phoenix right now and hope they’ll be delivered by the time I get home.

You should take a look anyway, Simon, there are some heavily discounted classic breton tops, and they're quality. The downside is their shipping fees, a bit over the top if I recall correctly.

Agree GS, there are bargains, and not just end of season stuff. I bought a couple of s/s Bretons in readiness for summer. Shipping to me here in Essex was 15 euros for three items. Not over the top but could have been a bit cheaper I agree. Worth a look Simon all the same

I guess the shipping costs are decent when you buy more tan 2 ítems, but you'll have to admit, Mark, that 15 € is a bit steep if you're acquiring just one number.
Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: Essexmark on April 19, 2018, 02:16:52 PM
Agree GS. That's why I wouldn't buy one item, and due to their rather regular sales, nothing at full price....

In fact, Armor Lux is a bit pricey to pay full price, methink. I remember trying one of their "cabans" (french for pea coat, really) some months ago in their homeland, France (not Britanny exactly, but not far either), and it fitted me well, but it was the wrong side of 300 €! By way of consolation, their main competitors, Saint James, are even more expensive and never -or oddly- do sales. 

It has to be stated that both brands manufacture about half of their clothes in France, using mostly natural fibres, which goes to explain the prices.

Yes mi hermano , I did have a look , however they didn't have anything I fancied . I don't own any Breton tops I consider them the to be the clothes of the younger Mod , similar to the shiny suit. Also , I don't wear the horizontal stripes they seem to favour , must be a French thing . I only do vertical stripes. .


. .also the spell checker on here seems to favour the American spellings . Are we in the U.S. ?
Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: Essexmark on April 19, 2018, 04:36:36 PM
I'm far removed from a younger Mod, Simon, being just the wrong side of 50. However I still think a classic Breton T or Knit works. I definitely don't do shiny suits...Talking about St James, their factory is just down the road from a small house we have in France. They do sometimes have a factory outlet sale for the locals. We tried it but it was a real bun fight...gave up in the end ;)
Title: Re: Clothes bargains, pass 'em on...
Post by: greenstreet on April 20, 2018, 09:02:52 AM
I'm with Mark here, a breton striped top can still be a stylish garment for a 50+ gent given the appropiate setting (think spring/summer, sunny days, a seashore town or near the sea, you get the picture... ) but for horses courses.

Shiny suits look a bit garish and "cheap" to me, even on younger chaps. I cannot help but to associate them with comedy mods.

If I were you, Mark, next time I'd fight my way to the clothes!

Breton shirts are hard to pull off in my opinion unless your a younger guy, older guys i`ve seen wearing them look a bit "camp Freddie". Shiny/mohair suits.....all depends on the colour.

Freddie". Shiny/mohair suits.....all depends on the colour.

Of course, when I talk about shiny suits I'm referring to the cheap "tonic" numbers that exaggerate the shining effect, a good mohair/wool suit has got a subtle two tone look, not a dazzling shine.

This 100% cotton cycling top with no logo/emblem in sight will surely tick the boxes of some here. You can find it in Yoox (by "8" brand) and it's got a 20% reduction that leaves the price in 57 € (not bad really, "8" is decent quality, but if you're patient I'm sure the price will drop more):
