The tops I see on their US site don't do that much for me, to be frank, but now that's getting warmer down here there are some new checked shorts (at the british webstore too) that I fancy.

That's for sure, but I'd swore Mao applied a very strict dress code (and not only for him): everything was olive green or, if he felt flamboyant enough, khaki. Very stylish.

Back to the thread, I like this wool polo from Rapha, with a 50s cycling vibe, but 125 pounds are excessive for a polo shirt, maybe on the sales...

Very suave , Sidney . .that is actually a reasonable price , for Rapha. .

It reminds me of the first cycling  club I rode for in the mid-7ts , they gave me a jersey like that but the pockets on the front had been sown up . .
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .
I wont be pushed, filed , stamped , indexed , briefed , debriefed OR NUMBERED!

I like this as a day to day boot.

The contrasting stitching is rather nice.

Lacks the finesse you would usually find in a mod's wardrobe IMO Trotsky and the branding on the heal is the turd in the very rugged rose patch for me.

I'm with you, Steve, it has something of a Dr Martens shoe combined with a Chelsea, and this kind of hybrids usually don't look right.
