So I was checking out Burberry (I do this every now and then in eternal hope of finding something worth lusting after) and found this......

I can't believe they charge more than 1.000 pounds for a jacket and then don't give a damn about the presentation. Everything is wrong with that outfit. Even the model looks scruffy.

The jacket - as they used to say “it fits where it touches”!

And as for those strides, I’ve noticed several magazine layouts trying to force those upon the public now that we’re cycling away from the Thom Browne influence. It’s like the seventies never happened for these people. Boring and predictable.

Trouble is this stuff ain't aimed at guys like us. Nor, for that matter, average blokes of our age so this weird mis-match of smart jacket paired with trainers or comedy ankle swingers or even a kilt/skirt or whatever is never gonna appeal. Of course the fit ain't what we like but in terms of the style if a slimmer cut and thinner lapels and pattern it is a winner. Give me a bit of Etsy any day for a nice vintage jacket.

+1. That Burberry jacket doesn't look bad per se, but I find their stuff wildly overpriced. For some brands, it's not about selling clobber anymore, the key here is selling status to people that really don't care especially for the quality of their clothes.

Looks like a Black Watch tartan and I think Suggs used to wear a jacket like that when he had that "quiz" show of his. .
