Absolutely love those jumbo cord shoes, great shape too. I`ve always been put off by the name Mod Shoes and give the site the swerve, but they had a stall last summer at The Retro Festival in Newbury and the quality of their stuff looked pretty good.

Matt, I agree with you the name might put one off, but that would be a mistake, as Andy not only knows his stuff, he's doing also a nice work with his new clothes range 66, shirts so far are very nice and the racing and monkey jackets have been a success IMO

Mine arrived today (along with the navy one) as well :)

Great, Ian! Did you get the size right?

A cheer-up for me in times of confinement, this one arrived today, and pretty happy I'm with it. Slim but not snug (if you want to wear a t-shirt underneath, it's better to size up), proper collar and a soft touch, almost wooly (there's silk in the mix, I think). I'll get me the navy one too if it makes it to the next sales:

Those Cord Shoes look great.

They have a useful  message about the shirt fitting being not tight  - "PLEASE NOTE : These are not slim fit, they are normal. For instance the slim fit Brutus that came out recently (the darted ones) , these are bigger than these, but not wide."  - with loads of measurements

I thought the stripes on this shirt are pretty wild and groovy but sadly sold out in M and L  https://www.modshoes.co.uk/product/the-jackpot-burnt-orange-stripe-high-collar-button-down-long-sleeve-shirt-mod-skin-style/

I concur, that's the best-looking shirt Andrew has made, a beauty, but even the S size seemed a bit big for me. They're limited runs so better buy at once or regret it later.

As prompted by Greenstreet in another thread, here's links to my latest purchases.  Nothing out of the ordinary but nice additions (IMO) to the wardrobe.

First off from AGC:

And from Mod Shoes:
https://www.modshoes.co.uk/product/the-deighton-camel-jumbo-cord-corded-lace-up-shoe/  (apparently now out of stock!!)
https://www.modshoes.co.uk/product/the-jackpot-dark-navy-blue-red-tartan-high-collar-button-down-short-sleeve-shirt-mod-skin-style/
https://www.modshoes.co.uk/product/the-jackpot-white-blue-gold-tartan-high-collar-button-down-short-sleeve-shirt-mod-skin-style/

Both shirts fit nicely, though they are nowhere near as fitted as, say, AGC so I've had to size down (and it's not very often in recent years I've been able to say that!!  ;D) ;D

Congrats for the downsizing, Chilli, that's a right self-confidence boost   :D. I prefer the Modshoes shirts' patterns to the AGC, but nice shirts the three anyway, only the misaligned pocket is a no-no for me (the eternal pocket controversy  ;D). Regarding the shoes, not my cuppa (they have a bit of a coffin-like shape, IMO) but the guy in charge of Modshoes, Andrew, says they're are flying like hotcakes, so he must have ticked the right boxes with them for many of our persuasion. Good to him.

Not it's nothing to do with the way I perceive it.  I was commenting on people who look down on immigrants but then become one themselves without any hint of irony.

Nurse, pass the smelling salts !!!
I find myself in complete agreement with dazlcfc on something
I'm confused !

:) :)

 ;D

I've been using my time productively the past two weeks whilst working from home to take advantage of some online shopping  :), knowing that I will be at home to ensure that the parcels are delivered OK.

I've only bought from small enterprises (AGC and Mod Shoes) who have both stated on their websites that they have adopted safe practices for both themselves and their couriers when picking up parcels for delivery.  On delivering the parcels, the couriers have been reassuringly safeguarding themselves by knocking on the door and then retreating to the bottom of the drive, and then taken photo's of me with the parcel for proof of delivery; no need to sign for anything. 

 

Great, Chilli, a couple pics in the "What's the last item...?" thread would be ace!  8)

Ah dinnae mind the POW panels oan the cardie.


Wouldnae combine it wi' POW breeks right enough.

Yep, groin down the kid is an utter mess (I never dream I'd say something like this  ;D)

Agreed, and while we all may have been more than ready for the pendulum to swing away from the shrunken squeezed sausage fit of jackets and strides, the inevitable ridiculous extreme of strides fitting worserer (yes thatís a word!) than a fat manís pyjamas is no improvement in my book.

In fact, I hate to say this, but I prefer skinny trousers (especially on well-built ladies, tbh) than the opposite: loose bell bottoms or flares' trews 70s style, like the ugly revival that took place 15 years ago or so.

And now that we're at it (rant time!), what do you think of the current trend of disproportioned clothes ("oversized" is the euphemism they use, ha!) thrown mercilessly on undernourished teenage models? Abomination, I tell ya.

How is it selfish on the delivery driver?
Firstly they have to do their rounds anyway (until the government bans them!) and theyíre getting paid which a lot of people arenít. I donít think they can catch corona off my doorstep. It may be a different story for items that have to be signed for but they are few and far between in my experience.

If they are a bit sensitive and knock on the door then step back etc then thatís fine by me.

Edit - what Syd said!

Rod, the mandatory sign-up formality has been replaced here with just providing the courier guy/postman your ID card number, so no physical contact whatsoever. Last parcels I received were placed in the mailbox or left by the delivery guy in the elevator after the notice (we live in a state here).
