And to illustrate my point about crewnecks and sports jackets, today's effort (sorry Rod, "wrong" angle again, it makes me feel taller!  ;D):

As long as I had to be out and about running errands, this a.m.:

JtG Jacket ( Navy)
Smedley Crew Neck (Camel Wool/Cash blend)
DNA Bruno Trousers (Navy w/ brown stripes)
ModShoes Loafers

(excuse the messy background)

You call that messy, Mike?!? You should see my son's room! Thumbs up from me, amigo, love the loafers and Claudio's strides especially (hemmed to the perfect length  8)). As a rule I try to avoid just a plain crewneck (I mean, no shirt underneath) under a jacket but I guess that JtG is casual enough to work. Surely the smartest fella runnin' errands in the whole Michigan state!
(But you need a hair job  ;))

Lots of things to watch! I've heard very good things of this, now in its second season and in Amazon:

You mean I don't have to buy "epix" to stream this?

tbh I have no idea, Mike, I'll check it out in Amazon, no way I'm going to pay for another streaming platform

Maybe of interest for those of us lovers of ancient, arcane music. I plan to read it back to back with Iain Matthews recent memoirs for a contrasting perspective:

Can't see any even remote likeness between the guy playing Johnny Rotten and Lydon himself, that's not a good omen
I thought the same when I saw Leonardo DiCaprio plying Howard Hughes. Then I saw the film and 1/2 way thru, I forgot I was looking at DiCaprio.
A good actor can do that, they don't have to be a look alike, IMO...

That's true, Mike, but Howard Hughes face isn't ingrained in the collective psyche of our generation like John Lydon's, I guess that could be disappointing.

That's very nice, Mike. I like what they're doing, maybe they're a bit on the predictable side, but who can blame them? They know well their market and stick to that. My main concern with them -as some other brands- is the inconsistency of the sizing, which render their sizing chart unreliable.

I reckon you'd be an XS in their sizing .  I think a lot of their stuff is made in the UK and that is why the sizing is like that . .we need the TKMaxx shoppes to reopen 😉🙃

In fact, I am an XS size, Simon, but I remember buying an XS AGC button-through polo that looked like a tent on me, while a rollneck jumper in the same size was perfect.

Anyway they have their own webstore. https://www.merzbschwanen.com/shop/collection/all-menswear-188
Not my cuppa but they look very Small Faces '69-ish.

Actually looking for a cheaper version but with wider arms perhaps similar to a Nehru shirt. Any ideas?

You're welcome, Mo  :)

Come to think of it, i have one CSN album i bought just for Marrakesh Express, (a pop song The Hollies turned down....so not hippy  :D) and i also own Cat Stevens` 60s stuff, (short hair and suits.....not hippy ;D).

I feel all the better for getting that off my chest.

Ha ha! You needn't worry, Matt, the Hollies recorded their own version of that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVblazSkVuQ
