Yep! I understood that as the reasoning too but it ain't for me.

Mod fashion and style / Re: I'd Wear That...

French brand "Sports d'Epoque" has always struck me as a good idea badly accomplished.

Broadly speaking, their aim is to recreate the spirit of sports in more innocent, gentlemanly times, but in a rather french way their garments never ever take the desirable minimalistic path, and usually end up overcharged by all manners of embroidered stuff that almost ever ruins their retro charm. Their new collection, however, contains this rather sober and classy apres-ski jumper (the shield I could live with). A pity the 200 € price tag...

Any chance of a photo?

Voilà, amigo mio... There are still some vinyl and books left, distributed between my mother's flat and our north of Spain house.

It looks like the bomber Merlaux is wearing in some episodes of "A very secret service".

Found this explanation which seems plausible at the time but doesnae really explain why they continued makin' the jaikets this way.

Agreed mate. Although very much the staple Ivy jacket for many of us here it defies logic. I have a good few and never wear them this way because as you say it just don't make any sense.

Perusin' the J Press website after followin' a link they emailed me - most ay thir suits seem tae be three button efforts but wi' this "roll" oan the top buttonhole.

Never really understood the reasons fur this style feature nor why it seems tae be so popular across the pond.


Embdy like it and/or prepared tae argue the case in it's favour?  Has always seemed pointless tae me.

This purchase is likely to appeal just the more Ivy League inclined amongst us, but horses for courses... Wouldn't have pulled the trigger at full price, but Abercrombie & Fitch (yes, them again!) has got all these crazy cumulative discounts and I've ended paying less than half price for the trousers (about 50 € down from 114).






Nice library set up ye huv gaun oan in the background there.  That a portrait ay yirsel' as a young mod hangin' oan the wall?



That's my son, Laird, he's 14 now but don't get the mod thing at all. Unfortunately, for his generation it's reggaeton and trap all the way, with the bloody cellular phones an extension of themselves.  >:(

Ady, that's the SMALL shelf at home, storing mainly my wife's books, the hi-fi system and lots of CDs; you should see the one in my study, a made-to-order, almost wall-to-wall shelf for vinyl, CDs and books that became too small a month after we began living in the flat!


Need tae urgently address ma storage issues at hame.

Ma hoose is turnin' intae Steptoes Yard.
