Very interesting. While some of the garments are unmistakably late 60 (I couldn't get away with a suede sand p-coat!), most suits are kosher mod fare.

This one. .

. .I know I couldn't get away with this one. .


... but it looks good on a young Michael Caine.

Could have been anything . With Wiggans being a Jam fan , maybe it was the latest compilation album from the Jam. . 8)

Agree GS, there are bargains, and not just end of season stuff. I bought a couple of s/s Bretons in readiness for summer. Shipping to me here in Essex was 15 euros for three items. Not over the top but could have been a bit cheaper I agree. Worth a look Simon all the same

Armor Lux have announced their Spring sale today. Ends 30 April. Some big discounts and I have partaken this morning  ;)

Good shout, Mark, tho' Armor Lux always seem to be offering discounts ("braderies") of one kind or another. Maybe we should warn about their NO SALES phase, lol.

I have never been inspired to buy from them , I think I have been spoiled by TKMaxx. . bugger.  :D

You should take a look anyway, Simon, there are some heavily discounted classic breton tops, and they're quality. The downside is their shipping fees, a bit over the top if I recall correctly.

I may have already linked to this at one time, can't remember, but it's relevant - Michael Caine's suits from The Italian Job:

http://clothesonfilm.com/take-me-to-my-tailor-michael-caine-in-the-italian-job/33309/



It was one of my favourite films as a child and before I'd even heard of mod, but I always liked his style. Especially the light coloured suit at the airport  8)

Douglas Hayward was a great tailor, he tailored the clothes for Mr.Caine in Alfie and Gambit as well
