bought a pair in leather from TK's a few years back - lovely shoes. Also got a pair of black loafers and a sebago X billy Kirk pair of boots. All a cut above most others

What about Sidewinder Apparel Trotsky? I've heard good things about them

He used to post on here - can't remember his name, not sure whether he still does

Was Mr Black on here. Some lovely backpacks on his site. Martin was very knowledgeable about his clobber.


Thats the chap - very knowledgeable and used to find cheaper but often better alternatives to most big brand names - he had a really nice Barbour style waxed jacket that I always meant to get but can't remember the name of the company now

there is that - I'm not a fan of overshoes and tend to wear sealskinz socks in winter instead but that was with an old pair of diadora's - not been out in ages so may dig my endura overshoes out

Shoulder or rucksack?

I can't recommend Fjallraven enough - I use an Ovik shoulder bag daily - have done for two years now, its bombproof and suits my needs well.

It's this one here but can be found cheaper I'm sure.

Think I paid 49 for mine

Nearly bought some Garneau myself - but then found a pair of SH Fizik R5 which had only been worn in the house (???) for 65 on eBay so snapped them up. They are truly superb. I'm a black shoed man myself - white socks in summer and darker colours for colder times

Hampshire & Foat - galaxies like grains of sand.

Heard these on Giles Peterson a while back - laid back Jazz/soundtrack type gubbins. Greg Foat of The Greg Foat Group (strangely enough) and Warren Hampshire of The Bees. Great recording.

I love my Fjallraven Greenland winter coat (they also do a lighter version). Not really waterproof unless you wax it but a superb coat and the only one I ever wear in Winter (casual wear wise). Hood is a bit s**t for casual use but on a long winter walk its close fit is ideal - you just look a bit of a dobbin with it up round town

Wow, she must be something live! I've listened to another track from the album, "I found love", not bad, but I prefer "Manchild".

There are some good vids on youtube of just her and the guitar player doing a radio type session - well worth watching. I've ordered the album which came out in US back in Sept but isn't out here till Feb according to amazon. So my copy is coming the from the states. Hoping it doesn't get stopped by bloody customs, especially as I've now seen it for sale at bloody Juno records
