A new spanish brand I hadn't heard of before. Little to do with mod really, but some nice jackets, shirts, trousers and especially knits with a retro vibe (BTW, their swimshorts are also interesting):

After a quick look, clothes look nice but the fit looks kind of boxy and oversized....wide leg, high wasted trousers and knit shirts that hang over the shoulder, no?

Fair point, Mike, it's a shame that current trends ruin some clobber that looks carefully designed in other respects. I just disagree with you in the high waisted trousers matter, hipsters era ended some time ago for me, now I like my strides medium-to-high waist, just low waisted jeans.

With the exception of my DNA trousers and Levis, everything else I wear is probably a medium height waist, I was more or less commenting on the wide waist band and wide leg of those trousers, which really look very "1940's" to me. Which from leafing thru "The Rake" seems to be a design trend in Europe now.
Plus the models look like they're "swimming" in them.
No fan of the uber-skinny, hyper tapered look myself, but that look is like the other extreme to me.
Maybe if they were a tad more tailored...?

Right on all accounts, Mike; as the old adage goes: Virtue is the happy medium between two extremes.

Like this polo GS,any experience of this company?

Actually not, Woody, discovered the website by chance, I just know that their clobber is made in Spain apparently. Those polos are possibly the nicest numbers in the shop.
