Nice design, but looks a bit plastic-y and slightly medical. I'd prefer to spend a little more and get something from Austin Reed or another of the mid-price brands.

"Medical" that's pretty accurate.

Red Steve posted a link to a Crombie DB Mac last year, I have the picture at home still. no belts, epaulets, or anything. just very clean looking.

Not keen on those capes on macs though. Don't mind belted macs and strapped sleeves but no capes
Do it well

Love this cable knitted top, not at 100 though. I tried one of them in the flesh during my french holidays, reduced to 55 !, but they didn't have my size  >:(

Like that a lot. (Would change the buttons though)

Like that polo but agree would swop the buttons for white.

That looks way to short of a Mac to be of any use in a shower. Doesn't even reach his crotch. Looks more like a DB blazer made of Mac material. Just like that Harrington Mac posted earlier, it seems I'm not much into 'hybrid' tackle!

I'd fancy this FP beauty for my monkey jackets' collection, but at 320 it's way too expensive:

nice one. wish there was a version without the laurel wreath though. Looks fine on polo shirts but almost looks out of place on a jacket like this

Guess you're right Dan, but you know FP stamps the bloody logo even in their underwear  :)
