You look good in your cardies Martin , l reckon you don't look as old as you are .

My personal favourite is the AG but the others are fine too . I own two cardies at the moment , one in merino and one made of Shetland variety .  Thanks for posting Martin , I haven't quite go the hang if that yet. .

Don't know what they've done to the picture of THE WHO as Pete and John are now 'lefties' but the logo on the drums is still the right way round

Yes , l also noticed that Pete and John are on the wrong side of the stage , respectively. I reckon the images are maybe superimposed in some way and reversed images before that . .possibly
Despite them being my favourite band , can't say l have seen that image before but l'm sure TLoE will be able to grab the original , if it dies exist. .

I know some gents here rate high the waterproof french cagoules. This new Saint James' one doesn't look half bad, if a bit pricey (it's a cotton/linen mix), 225 .



On another issue, I know this should go in the "Bargains" thread, but I'll break just once the rule: the Uniqlo's merino wool rollnecks are selling right now for just 10 , with 5 or 6 colourways on display. Mind you, few sizes left. I've rounded my collection with a beautiful dark green one.

Not quite those prices in Reino Unido. .

You're right, I'm a bit puzzled by these differences (not just in price, but in the stock that is reduced too). Maybe Uniqlo UK are enacting their own take on Brexit. Anyway, the merino rollnecks sell with discount in GB too, only less (15 sterling), still a good buy, IMO.

Si , mi hermano but only in sizes for the very small faces and the very large ones. . :)

I must admit I do like that Snr Sydney, particularly those stripes - resident fusspot status , notwithstanding. .
Of course ,45e is nearly 45 in real money but still a decent price . So where did you fetch it hombre. .

Here's the link once more, hermano. As I said to the Laird, just one S size left, it'd be perfect for you. But a wee more expensive, 53 as opposed to the 45 I paid for it (thanks to a discount code).

GS I will try and get a shot of me wearing said Grandad cardie! Smart Weston were a London company of the early 60s. Featured a few times in MOD A NEW RELIGION in ads as well as some of the famous Motown Tour with some of the bands standing outside one of the stores. I have the blue Gus and maybe will snap up the largely fawn one too. Interesting link and image here

This new cardigan will hopefully tick all the right boxes for our resident fusspot (and dear friend, notwithstanding  ;) ), mr Simon Bond. Vertical stripes? Check. No pockets? Check. Perfect fit? Check. Good price tag? Check. The "Made in China" (styled in Italy!!) tag and bit of nylon thrown in the wool/cotton mix (a mere 20%) I can happily live with at 45 .

Sorry for the crap pics, colour of the garment is chocolate, much nicer than the black it appears to be. Oh, and sorry for the wrinkles, pics are pre-ironing.

I'm seeing a blue/dark purple too funny enough. Looks good though. I sport a cardi occasionally. Have a couple of shawl collars, a very nice Art Gallery Gus and am today wearing a vintage Smart Weston corduroy fronted affair. Hidden pockets too for boiled sweats for the grand kids and a pipe cleaner or two if required.

   Good on you , Martin                 :D
