On the subject of 4 button knitwear, I'm really drawn to this, but will have to take a gamble that they still have it in my size when they have their Summer sale:





Here you go Steve - 50% off if you're a size 40

Thanks Mark, yes 40" is my size, just off to check my bank balance :-)

Nice looking bit of kit that Fred Peril! I can't justify it really as I have a very similar but not quite so tasty looking polo from J Crew otherwise od jump on myself.

Liking the new Le Coq Sportif's "Revival" collection (yeah, bit of an obvious name, but the garments are nice). I saw part of it some days ago in one of their french stores, not the one pictured below but a sweater with the same vertical hoops, and it looks the part. A bit on the expensive side, though.

Not usually a fan of Nigel Cabourn garments, that workwear chic thing doesn't do much for me. But there are always interesting pieces in his seasonal collaborations with Fred Perry. Case in point this sweater, with a nice early 60s t-birds vibe:



COS is an uneven brand too, its aesthetic scandinavian asceticism bordering on the bland & boring most often than not, but I really like this cardi, texture reminds me of the old mohair/alpaca cardigans (difficult to find nowadays, even in the vintage market), and the one button detail is appealing. Even the pairing with a roll neck top is alright with me:

Not fussed on that COS number, sidney, looks to me like a 70s imagining of clothing of the future, but I do like that Nigel Cabourn/Fred Perry jumper

Well put, doc! But the cardi still reminds me more of a 60s than a 70s futuristic design (70s space age designs were in fact busy and gaudy as opposite to simple and minimalist lines; just remember David Bowie's outfits!)

I think it's the White on Grey that's giving you that "Space Age" vibe ...
