He was actually 35 when he made that but sadly that is still maybe 15/20 years younger than most of us.

35 is a man's prime, Martin! Anyway, I reckon you've got to be in good shape and be of a certain height to look good in a light coloured peacoat. Nothing against the coat itself, in fact it's stunning.

I asked my son , who is 20 and a big fan of Caine and that movie . He reckoned I would look good in that jacket . .



So I have spoken to my suede tailor. . :P

Armor Lux have announced their Spring sale today. Ends 30 April. Some big discounts and I have partaken this morning  ;)

Good shout, Mark, tho' Armor Lux always seem to be offering discounts ("braderies") of one kind or another. Maybe we should warn about their NO SALES phase, lol.

I have never been inspired to buy from them , I think I have been spoiled by TKMaxx. . bugger.  :D

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.

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. ?

Could have been anything . With Wiggans being a Jam fan , maybe it was the latest compilation album from the Jam. . 8)

Very interesting. While some of the garments are unmistakably late 60 (I couldn't get away with a suede sand p-coat!), most suits are kosher mod fare.

This one. .

. .I know I couldn't get away with this one. .


There is also a scene where Camp Freddy wears a suit with covered buttons , I think it is the boardroom scene but I canny find the pic. .

That is affirmative Laird . It is Gilmour St . Couple of current buns couldn't stand the poor performance of their team obviously , especially due to the party in town perhaps. .

A good piece indeed , Sydney. I thought Charles Lloyd looked like Kevin Rowland in that pic. Chic Corea is a top bloke , very cool . Thanks for that . .
