Like this polo GS,any experience of this company?

Actually not, Woody, discovered the website by chance, I just know that their clobber is made in Spain apparently. Those polos are possibly the nicest numbers in the shop.

A new spanish brand I hadn't heard of before. Little to do with mod really, but some nice jackets, shirts, trousers and especially knits with a retro vibe (BTW, their swimshorts are also interesting):

https://www.walkersappeal.com/



After a quick look, clothes look nice but the fit looks kind of boxy and oversized....wide leg, high wasted trousers and knit shirts that hang over the shoulder, no?

Fair point, Mike, it's a shame that current trends ruin some clobber that looks carefully designed in other respects. I just disagree with you in the high waisted trousers matter, hipsters era ended some time ago for me, now I like my strides medium-to-high waist, just low waisted jeans.
With the exception of my DNA trousers and Levis, everything else I wear is probably a medium height waist, I was more or less commenting on the wide waist band and wide leg of those trousers, which really look very "1940's" to me. Which from leafing thru "The Rake" seems to be a design trend in Europe now.
Plus the models look like they're "swimming" in them.
No fan of the uber-skinny, hyper tapered look myself, but that look is like the other extreme to me.
Maybe if they were a tad more tailored...?

Right on all accounts, Mike; as the old adage goes: Virtue is the happy medium between two extremes.

If anyone is interested, I did run across another outfit that seems to sell only swim shorts and shirt in what they claim to be 60s italian and riviera style.....some of it I liked, some of it not so much, but I'll post a link when I get home....

**update, here's the link....not sure if they have been discussed here before or not**

Nice patterns there, Brian, some of them remind me of Okun Beachwear, a brand that make (or made, dunno if they closed shop) some nice-looking trunks (maybe too daring for me) with african motifs (very 70s Black Power, man!). What I don't like is the waistband drawstring, only buttons these days for me.

Their "camicias"/popovers look even better, a stylish continental vibe going on  8)

Blimey mate  you look great for that age! Take any remark about you being young or 'a lad' as the hugest of compliments fella. I guess seeing you at a graduation adds to the sense of youthfulness too so please take no offence from anything any of the guys said. Most of us here are some way over the 50 mark so even a 40 year old is a 'kid' to us. As noted you look spot on in my book regardless of age. The clobber did the talking.

Aye - almost time tae trade in thoughts ay  Vespas n' Lambrettas n' start tae focus oan mobility scooters fur some ay us.

Currently sufferin' fae a bout ay sciatica n' ah had tae double check that it wisnae rigor mortis.     ;D


By the way - wear yir tie clip any way ye want.

Feel your pain, Laird, I've got 2 splendid herniated discs myself and when they feel like it they provide me with nice lumbago attacks that keep me doubled in pain even for a whole week. What's not to like?

Wish you get better soon pal.  :)

That obsession with green, ye Celtic men!   ;)

Nothing to write home in the upcoming Lacoste collection, but I like this t-shirt (in navy too):

You got a link for those Zara tops, Rafa, can't find them on site?

Now this is odd, Nick, I've been unable to locate the bloody cardie in the UK webstore, but definitely it's in the spanish one. It's from the new collection, so maybe that explains the delay: https://www.zara.com/es/es/camisa-estampado-rayas-p04231411.html?v1=15911887&v2=1282716

Strange indeed, Rafa, maybe the UK store hasn't caught up yet? I'll keep looking, but thanks for the Spanish link

You're welcome, doc!

Thanks for the tips, took Rods advice and checked out the local J Crew and managed to find a pair!

Well done, B, my main concern with JCrew is the sizing, but no problem if you can try the clobber on.
