No worry mate. TBH I wasn't sure what I was doing really but GS sent me a through 'Picture Posting For Idiots' and it seemed to work alright especially for the old compare and contrast aspect of this posting. Yeah The Zara one was a heads up from GS too. Quality is really nice as well for the price as well I got it for £20 or something I think.

Yeah, there was a time a year or 2 ago that it seemed like Zara had hired a designer crazy for the 60s spies/sci-fi movies, hence Martin's cardie and a zipped jumper I've got from them that's right out of the original Star Trek series. I was browsing their website today and everything was s***e  >:(

Is that when they had all the cycling tops? They were quite nice.

Cardies can be lovely things, there´s so many variations as well - as these pictures show.

Yes, some folk there must have been browsing thru' 60s clothing catalogs. Now they've got just a nice, very basic, black cycling top (see the "I'd wear that" thread).

Same here! I've got a lot of cardigans:
Art Gallery Cable Knit (more on the skinhead side)
Art Gallery merino with leather buttons
A couple of Argyle patterned in navy and grey
Gabicci in royal blue (as seen in "The Firm, slim fit)
Brooksfield in navy, regular fit
and the Lyle&Scott pictured below, my favourite!



I do wear them either over a shirt&tie combo or a buttoned up polo shirt

I only wear ties with a proper jacket, but the cardie/polo combo works usually fine.

Make sure you keep a quarter of toffees or some Werthers in those pockets for when the grand kids come to visit.

To be honest, I like Werthers as well, so I'm ok with that.
