Mod fashion and style / Ben Sherman Archive Modernist shirt
« on: March 15, 2019, 03:54:46 PM »
Has anyone bought any of the Ben Sherman Archive Modernist shirts?

And if you have what's the collar like? Is it a proper 3 finger button down?

At £80 I am not tempted as I can buy a DNA shirt for that price. But they might turn up in sales.

Mod fashion and style / Sons of London

Has anyone bought shoes from Sons of London https://sonsoflondon.com/? I've just seen them and the Chelsea Boots look quite nice but was wondering if anyone had any experience of buying from them.

Has anyone ever bought any Oliver Sweeney shoes or boots? I was just wondering what the quality was like.

Mod in the media / Marco Rubioís Boots

Has anyone seen the storm/debate in the US over one of the republican candidate's choice of boots?

Apparently they are Florsheims. Definitely a 60's mid vibe to them with the little cuban heel. I'm not getting into the politics of his candidature because  quite frankly, I go on these forums to get away from the depressing state of (most) politics in the world today.

But I have to say - I quite like the boots.

Mod fashion and style / Blenheim Loakes Chelsea Boots
« on: October 06, 2015, 01:54:09 PM »
So autumn is here and winter comes soon after. Therefore I need to buy some new Chelsea boots as my old Loakes 290 are giving out after many years of wear.

I am looking at buying the Blenheim Loakes Boots principally because I realised that I mainly wear my Chelsea boots  in winter, and a rubber sole is probably sensible seeing how many times I had to replace the leather soles on my 290's.  Has anyone else bought Blenmheim Loakes? How did you find them? And can anyone  recommend  quality Chelsea boots other than Loakes that won't break the bank.

I want to get some bespoke trousers made up for me. Does anyone know a good and reasonable tailors in Central London that they can recommend? I have used Luke Gents & Ladies Tailors in Barking and they are great but they are bit of a trek for me to get to. I would use George’s Tailors in Haringey but he only does suits. He won’t do just trousers.

Has anyone used Franco Santoro in Kingly Street? Apart from this website it seems difficult to get any information on him. 

Any advice or recommendations gratefully received.

Mod fashion and style / V Neck jumpers. Any recommendations?
« on: October 21, 2013, 10:43:21 AM »
I was wondering is anyone can recommend a brand of V Neck jumpers where the V isnít too low. One of the things that annoys me are V neck jumpers that show the shoulder of the shirt when you put them on. Can anyone recommend a V neck jumper with a high collar so I can avoid this sartorial misadventure?
