I know some gents here rate high the waterproof french cagoules. This new Saint James' one doesn't look half bad, if a bit pricey (it's a cotton/linen mix), 225 .



On another issue, I know this should go in the "Bargains" thread, but I'll break just once the rule: the Uniqlo's merino wool rollnecks are selling right now for just 10 , with 5 or 6 colourways on display. Mind you, few sizes left. I've rounded my collection with a beautiful dark green one.

Not quite those prices in Reino Unido. .

You're right, I'm a bit puzzled by these differences (not just in price, but in the stock that is reduced too). Maybe Uniqlo UK are enacting their own take on Brexit. Anyway, the merino rollnecks sell with discount in GB too, only less (15 sterling), still a good buy, IMO.

Si , mi hermano but only in sizes for the very small faces and the very large ones. . :)

Saint Mirren sign their first ltalian player with Massimo Donati , at 36 hopefully he isn't pasta his best and can still get a pizza the action. .




Was he any good when he played for the spaghetti hoops?   :P

I must admit I do like that Snr Sydney, particularly those stripes - resident fusspot status , notwithstanding. .
Of course ,45e is nearly 45 in real money but still a decent price . So where did you fetch it hombre. .

Here's the link once more, hermano. As I said to the Laird, just one S size left, it'd be perfect for you. But a wee more expensive, 53 as opposed to the 45 I paid for it (thanks to a discount code).

GS I will try and get a shot of me wearing said Grandad cardie! Smart Weston were a London company of the early 60s. Featured a few times in MOD A NEW RELIGION in ads as well as some of the famous Motown Tour with some of the bands standing outside one of the stores. I have the blue Gus and maybe will snap up the largely fawn one too. Interesting link and image here

This new cardigan will hopefully tick all the right boxes for our resident fusspot (and dear friend, notwithstanding  ;) ), mr Simon Bond. Vertical stripes? Check. No pockets? Check. Perfect fit? Check. Good price tag? Check. The "Made in China" (styled in Italy!!) tag and bit of nylon thrown in the wool/cotton mix (a mere 20%) I can happily live with at 45 .

Sorry for the crap pics, colour of the garment is chocolate, much nicer than the black it appears to be. Oh, and sorry for the wrinkles, pics are pre-ironing.

I'm seeing a blue/dark purple too funny enough. Looks good though. I sport a cardi occasionally. Have a couple of shawl collars, a very nice Art Gallery Gus and am today wearing a vintage Smart Weston corduroy fronted affair. Hidden pockets too for boiled sweats for the grand kids and a pipe cleaner or two if required.

   Good on you , Martin                 :D

Re Britac - I've just checked their website and I retract my comment about how bad it was. They have updated it so you can see all their shirts easily.

Fit - I found that they are on the tight side. Good if you want to show off your biceps but you might want to go a size up from your normal.

Logo - it is on the shirts but their choice of stitching colour means it is generally very subtle.


Bit like the River Island "muscle fit" Simon Bond is fond ay pourin' himsel' intae then.


 ;D

Well , if you've got it , you might as well flaunt it. .cycling purposes or not. . :D
