Thought I'd post this here,

For any of you Curtis Mayfield fans out there Monkey has recorded an interview with the man that was put out on Jazz FM with Paul Jones before his last gig here in 1990.

Thanks Monkey,it was well worth an hour of my time! :)
Listened to this at work today and, as you said, an hour well spent.
Also listened to a couple the Peter Young's Soul Cellar shows which Monkey has put up on Mixcloud; these shows, from the 80s are excellent.

I canít stand Brunello Ciccinelli for the absolutely ridiculous prices. Anybody who buys his stuff is just enabling this off the charts gouging.

This luxury market has been discused here before. I guess brands like BC have their niche market (like Prada, Valentino, Tom Ford, Helmut Lang...), guys that wear those garments just because they can afford it, mostly as a pure symbol of status. People that usually replaces taste with money. Some of those companies make clownish ill-fitting garments on purpose (hey, we're avant-garde!), others make hit-or-miss stuff, with NOTHING in the design or fabrics departments that justifies the astronomical prices. If I had the money to afford those brands, I'd go bespoke for everything.
Good shout ,Sydney. .

Cheers guys. Appreciate the knowing nods. Adam,  I guess working with a gang of lads into similar stuff will have its benefits with eBay and international sales. Result for sure fella.

Cheers all.  Great outfit Martin as always.
Dickies are the slim fit work pant (872 I think). Yes there a little long at the moment, agreed.
Vintage jacket was a result as one of the lads at work shipped it from the states and was too big for him, nice.
OB polo is a gem, love those open collars. Got a few in the basic cotton too. Bit overpriced though IMO as they don't hold their colour too well.
Green shirt is one of ours.

Got a couple of pairs of black trews that I usually pair with a black leather 4 button jacket I had made about 20 years ago. I always wear something more colourful underneath,light blue,mustard,red etc.

Also have a black,wine and cream Art Gallery cardi from a few years ago that i wear with stone trews or chinos.

That's about it as far as black goes.
