I got an oxford popover from them for about $25 IIRC.

Canít say Iím distraught at the news as most of their gear was a bit boring to me, but the last e mail I got from them it seemed like they were full steam ahaead then heard recently they were packing it all in. Curious business - I like to see the little fellas do well so itís tough for them. Anyone heard what happened?

I guess they tried to upscale from amateur (everything began for them as a college homework, if I'm not mistaken) to professional clothes' dealers and they failed or just got tired. For one thing, they lost the niche market they had (Ivy buffs, modernists...) without appealing to a broader one. Offering just some plain BD shirts didn't help. And maybe they didn't interest investors in the business.

The finnish guys that run Lean Garments are closing shop and the last batch of BD shirts are reduced to 50 Ä (plus shipping). I own some of their numbers from past seasons and the quality is top notch. These last ones are apparently made in Portugal, with the usual Ivy details (locker loop, back collar button, box pleat), mother of pearl buttons and a thick oxford cotton (linen in some cases) and come in white, blue, grey and red/pink. The main drawback for me is the collars, that look smaller than the previous ones. Anyway, a quality shirt for 50 Ä is a good deal, IMO.

Got yin ay thir shirts but didnae find it tae be a good fit oan ma athletic physique.

Half way through this now. cracking read. Not read the Memphis one yet Laird that's next on list.

Had a brief chat with him last week at Tailor Made in Glasgow.

They had him on a guest DJ. Played a couple of great sets. He obviously knows his onions and has some big records.
Used to see him at Legendary Glasgow club Caledonian Soul

Sounds like you had a great night out Woody. .

The latest Mojo has the Jam on the front and covers the " rebirth of Mod" , which of course has never really went away since. .

For some on here it will cover that period of time when one became captivated by the emerging Mod scene and for that reason it is worth a buy . Some good pictures in it too . .

Yes Supreme really hold their price 2nd hand because they do quite a lot of short editions, and some people actually buy them to trade them - a bit like some folk do with trainers

https://www.depop.com/sophieroseox/sophieroseox-supreme-mens-old-school-cardigan - one of the cream ones on sale here, but holding it's price

Oddly though, they went for the whole polo-cardigan vibe, and did some nice ones, but also reproduced the horrible grandad one, that is still  widely found

I don't know what the exact point that it goes from Mad Men to Old Men - the zip ? the chunkiness ? The ribbed bottom ?
