Cheers Ross! Simple and understated but utterly classic. I'll go one of these days to the local COS store to try it in the flesh but if earlier experiences are a guide I bet their smallest size will still look too big on me.  :-\

A new spanish brand I hadn't heard of before. Little to do with mod really, but some nice jackets, shirts, trousers and especially knits with a retro vibe (BTW, their swimshorts are also interesting):

A couple of new WA garments that look quite nice to me: 4 buttons polo (pretty similar to the ones they offered last season, but different colours) and rollneck jumper. A bit pricey right now but a good option come the sales.

La Paz Clothing is an interesting Portuguese brand that especializes in classic casual garments with a vague Atlantic fishermen vibe (thick jumpers, overcoats and the like). From their new season I'd single out these 2 numbers, a wool Herringbone coat and a cord jacket (both in more colours). A pity the somewhat excessive prices: 400+ for the coat and 200+ for the jacket:

Both of those are very nice. Really capture an early 60s Ivy type thing too. Pricey though of course so I will perhaps just worship from afar.

Some nice-looking newbies at Next, none pricier than 40 , most 100% cotton and one or two in Laird-approved colours  ;):











Truth is larger collars on the polos would be preferable but hey, you can't be picky at those prices.

I think you very well can be picky, even at those prices. Not good enough.

Well, I wouldn't possibly purchase them, but if you're in a budget some of those can fit the bill.

I like the Next polos but have found the all cotton ones go plukey quite easily. .
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .
I wont be pushed, filed , stamped , indexed , briefed , debriefed OR NUMBERED!

I was browsing Mason and sons following Essexmark's heads up and found this beauty. Now I'm not saying it would get much wear, it is a little pricey and it might split opinions but everyone would remember you if you walked in the room wearing it. I double dare you!
