Back to the track...

One of the most elusive items in my wardrobe "wants" list have been a pair of Chelsea shoes, ie, a very low pair of Chelseas, akin to those Long John Baldry is sporting in his first LP cover. While I own a suede pair that resembles them (though they're still too boot-like to be perfect, I'm afraid), I'm always on the lookout for the real thing. These Guidi shoes are almost there, minus the round toe. I wouldn't mind grabbing me a pair, tho', if it wasn't for the 700 they command:



Not quite what you're looking for, but these are quite low-slung by Chelsea boot standards...

Yes, in fact they look like my sand suede Chelseas, but you're righ,t what I'm after is more "shoe" than "boot".

These look rather fetching in the brown suede version. The others may appeal to the dandies amongst you. You know who you are.........

A simple blue jacket for 70 from river island. I'm already maxed out on simple blue jackets unfortunately.

Or this white one for only 40 from BHS

I like the 'non-Harrington' collar on that jacket, would certainly wear that

And don't forget the arrow detail in the pocket. Nice.
