Check out Dolomite. I've got some of their walking shoes which are very comfortable and well made.

Cheers, Leon! Not bad (& reasonable price tags), but the engraved logo and those vertical seams put me off.

Not sure if I'd wear this, but it's an interesting -and expensive- take on old apres-ski jumpers by a swiss brand:



Next, a Beams + cardie, with a look that's more 50s than 60s, but you know I'm a sucker for vertical stripes and I like the "shaggy" texture of alpaca:



Last one is more traditional "mod" fare -and the cheaper of the 3-, but with the added bonus of sustainability, as it comes from a german brand that manufactures only with organic fabrics:

This vintage 1960s style double breasted suit jumped out at me - in all honestly I wouldn't wear it, doble breasted not really my thing, but I thought it was a really interesting bit of clothing history https://www.revivalvintage.co.uk/product/1969-bespoke-three-piece-suit/#image-1

Also, am I being particularly stupid, I can't figure out how to post pictures direct into the chats . Do they have to be on photobucket or something first, or can I post directly from my computer ?

Cheers, Cord. The "how to post pictures/upload images in the forum" has been raised -and answered- now and again in other threads. Here's a tutorial courtesy of Martin G, who as me uses Imgur:

Re. the suit it's a beauty indeed, but I agree with you, not for me. It reminds me of that classic POW ensemble sported by that soul peacock, the Wicked Pickett:

I'd add that you don't even need to create an account with Imgur, just once there click in the "new post" sign up left.
