Rag&Bone cotton mix cardigan. Drawbacks of this one? First, the price tag (265 for a cotton/poly mix!!!) and the shirt-like chest pocket:
That pocket definitely ruines it for me. And the price is nonsense, of course.

John Lewis are selling a Towelling Polo Shirt https://www.johnlewis.com/john-lewis-partners-riviera-collar-towelling-cotton-polo-shirt/navy/p4099484  - many times cheaper than the Orlebar Brown ones. Saw them in the shop - didn't try one on,  so not sure of the sizing

Those Uniqlo tops are great: I have the navy striped one and also the plain coloured ones in white, grey and orange.


They ur doon tae 9.90 noo.  A steal at that price.

The only other time l can recall seeing one of those tops , is when my dad wore one when l was a kid (and maybe Connery had one in a Bond film)  . I never thought of my old dad as a Mod but he certainly had some nice gear . .

Not sure about terry towelling garments, they always remind me of a statement Hardy Amies did in his essential ABC of men's fashion, something along these lines: towelling fabric should be used only in towels.

I could be wrong, but I think he was encompassing the whole masculine wardrobe. Maybe excepting bathrobes & slippers, lol.

I quite like the high closed collar on these Armor Lux t-shirts:



But the model needs a shave.
