Based in Barcelona GS

Been on the go for years. I believe you had to call in advance if you wanted to view showroom. Don't know if that's still the case.

The shirts are made in Barcelona, which is a good thing in my book, and the prices are a tad below Claudio's, so I guess they're a fair deal. Britac looks really like a spanish counterpart to Brutus, more of a skinhead oriented business. I don't need another BD shirt at the moment, but I wouldn't mind trying Britac in the future.

A trip into town today, popped into Uniglo to look at the harringtons. Brought the Blue one (it looks very much like green to me)  https://www.uniqlo.com/uk/en/product/men-uniqlo-u-harrington-jacket-405947.html?dwvar_405947_size=SMA002&dwvar_405947_color=COL68&cgid=IDbiker2146  Also found these Merino tops, very similar (although the collars are are tiny bit smaller) to Smedley tops, but for 30 each they are a great buy i think. Brought the purple and the dark green ones https://www.uniqlo.com/uk/en/product/men-extra-fine-merino-knit-long-sleeve-polo-shirt-400625.html?dwvar_400625_size=SMA001&dwvar_400625_color=COL78&cgid=IDpullovers2219. Also brought this cardigan in Wine https://www.uniqlo.com/uk/en/product/men-extra-fine-merino-v-neck-cardigan-400620.html?dwvar_400620_color=COL19&dwvar_400620_size=SMA001&cgid=IDcardigan2217. As usual i'm very happy with Uniglo for the price I paid.

Like the look of those merino polo tops matey. Pity the colours are so demure but I got a black one a couple of years ago from there. Yet more evidence that Uniqlo shouldnt be sniffed at. I also like the collars on them. So many others sell them with huge fly away collars (AGC), these ones look much better.

Yes, the collars are just right, IMO. Some of the old italian knitwear (and the nowadays repros) have excessive collars, at least for small faces.

Yeah. Think Jimmy at the house party in Quadrophenia. Always spoilt the look for me.

I've got a couple of Britac shirts and I like them. The fabric is lightweight but they are well made. Their website is a bit hard to navigate through quickly but the variety of colours are really good. Well worth a visit imo.
