The guys who run French brand/boutique Comunne de Paris 1871 are closing for good at year's end. Last months all their stuff has already been reduced, but from here to Christmas they're clearing the remaining stock, which means higher discounts, up to 80%.

I've got some of their made in Europe 3-button Protot blazers, so I can vouch for the quality, and besides they offer some nice blousons (jackets), jumpers, trousers and accessoires (nice watches or socks, for instance). If you're interested their final braderie (sale) begins tomorrow:

Fill yer boots!!

First stop in Brighton if I have the chance to get back there  8)

I absolutely agree and IMO as a whole album is superior to, say, Abbey Road (controversial I know ;) ).  When I last met the late Phil May (nearly a year ago now)I told him as such ... Dick Taylor overheard and said to Phil can you hold him while I hit him! (cos hed left the band by that point). Good luck with that I thought as Im about a foot taller and 30 odd years younger than him!!  I quickly clarified how much I loved SF Sorrow, Get the Picture( their best Mod/Brit R&B album), the early singles etc.!

Great story, n. 6 (and a wise move on your part, appeasing ol' Dick instead of punching a legend of British rock  ;))

I suppose pure merino is still comfortable in a bit of heat , if you are wearing the kind of gauge that say , JS use , you will be okay up to about 20c?

I usually wear merino jumpers with a t-shirt underneath as to reduce washings, so I guess a comfy temp with them on would be between 8-10 and 18 C.

Ok, inspired by GS's post yesterday:

Edward Sexton PoW flannel DB suit w/ "Parallel" cut trousers with 2" turn ups.
Blue Oxford cloth Beagle collar shirt (MtM copy of old PG Weller shirt)
Brooks Brothers tie & Pocket Square
Kenneth Cole oxblood shoes...
(dressed to run errands this morning, tired of jeans and pullovers ;D)

Perfect, Mike, somehow overdressed just to run errands  ;), but... I'm not a fan of DB jackets for myself, but you look the proverbial boll**s with that suit.

I have 1 db suit , l got the turn ups removed.  If l had lapels like Mike's on mine , l would probably get airborne on a day like today , it is a bit blustery here. .looks the the dogs on Michigan Mike though , as you say. .

Yep, for us the wee brotherhood  ;) DB jackets with wide lapels are sort of an overstatement.

Aye , the small would be a decent fit on you Sydney, they are not my usual 100% merino choice but good value for money and in your gentler , more clement climes you don't really need woolies anyway😃😜😎🤠

And in spite of that, I keep on buying them, hermano  :-[

Those jumpers look OK bit of a shock though the seller is based in my old place of work from about 25 years ago! Mental.

Mart, funny how those unlikely coincidences happen quite often in life!

Haven't played this in ages. SF Sorrow by the Pretty Things. Surely their best album.

Landmark album, but the best by them is "Parachute", IMO

The most recent Shindig with articles on Baby Huey and the Byrds Younger than Yesterday album. Don't buy the mag every month, all depends on what's in it.

I've bought that too, Mo, currently reading it. I was intrigued by the Byrds feature mainly, as "Younger than Yesterday" is one of my fave albums. The piece is worthy, btw, well researched and informative. Besides, through it I've known about the recently released Chris Hillman's autobiography, that of course has gone to my list.
