Depends on how thick your fingers are.
True, mine are pretty slim though, and that collar  looks like a 2.5 at most...
this is a three to me:


Yes, can't beat a Brooks.

apart from the quality and fit they're great.

With sales approaching their end, Fred Perry's launching the first batch of pieces for the new season. Nothing too exciting IMO, but as usual there are some fine looking numbers. For starters, a cycling pique top with an appealing simplicity ( in navy too):



Second, another reissues knitted henley that gets added points for the mustard colour.



And two classy monkey jackets: the infallible white jacket:



And this one, whose unusual colurway gives it the edge:

The BB "Regent" shirts are the only ones I can get a consistent fit with, and they do guarantee them for 2 years with normal wear...not that they pay me to say that, or anything... ;)

Ha ha ha!
I wouldn't now about the newer BBs TBH, most of my BBs are of the 6 button variety so the quality is very good.
As for the fit... I like the looser fit, it is in keeping with what I like to wear.

Good finds , Sydney. I like the green jersey and I like the colour of the Henley. .

Love that white FP bomber jacket but I don't think I love it 175 quids worth. I was searching for one for a long time and gave up and got a similar one from David Watts which is decent but would still love a FP if I could snag one on sale.

Not too dissimilar from this Bradley Wiggins top I've got for sale on ebay at the moment.

I'd agree all that FP stuff is pretty nice. I have the white Monkey from when it was re-issued maybe 10 years back. Rarely wear it to be honest. A little big for me now and also always a worry to wear something so bright and ready for some sort of much and gunge to fly your way. Have a more recent release blue one that is a little more practical but the white is very smart.

What size are you Martin?
I'm thinking sale or swap here. I mean it would be a shame if you didn't wear it and the moths got to it when you know someone who would give it a loving home!
