I was thinking more like Jagger's coat:

But thanks to the vid, now I'm seriously considering it even more... ;D

Another outing for my new bespoke jacket, hope y'all have a fantastic weekend!!!



Looks good, GS. I'd substitute for a darker trouser (maybe cords) and Bass Wejuns, but that's my personal preferences...

I know it's been a long time since I have posted anything, but I look forward to seeing this very soon. I'm a bit of a Beatles "anorak", so a lot of it doesn't surprise me about this. When you listen to the bootlegs that arose from these Get Back/Let it Be jam sessions, it's great to see this put to film, albeit in three parts. If there is indeed an 18 hour Director's Cut, I will definitely be investing in that too.

I'm almost through Part 3 and I have to admit, knowing what's coming after this for the group, it's a little bit sad. they were so much better as a unit, I know McCartney sold a lot of records since, but none of them reach the artistic "peak" the group did.

I love larger overcoats, but given my height (or lack thereof), P-coats and even car coats suit me better

I get that GS, personal preferences. And where you live you probably don't see many long coats anyway...
But I'm going to politely "push back" against the "height" argument... we sell shorter length overcoats, too... ;)

Oh no...
So the 3 piece, PoW suit I ordered the other day and when I opened the box I saw these:

Luckily, they weren't glue on, so my tailor shop is removing them while they alter the trousers ::)
Why ruin a new, good suit with elbow patches??

Ive always liked Pete Dohertys style from the early Libertines era

The Libertines (at least Doherty and Barat) had a great "wasted Mod" look, a authentic "swagger" and their music was fantastic IMO... the last band that I was really blown away by...

A shame they -especifically Doherty- chose behaving like t**ts and wasting their talent amidst parties and smack.

These kids need to learn, not everyone is "Keith"...

 ;D Watched the documentary about him recently. Not sure to what extent it has been "staged" but he keeps drinking and smoking without giving a damn!!
Now I heard about a year or so ago he quit smoking, and only has the "occasional" beer or glass of wine... said he had become "bored" of drinking. ;D

Canít go wrong with a decent pea coat in the cold weather.
I do like my full length overcoats but I think they were really designed with city walking in mind. These days when so much more of our lives is spent getting in and out of cars the shorter pea coat comes into its own as being more practical.

I'm wearing longer coats the last couple of years, although I do still keep my Pea coat and another wool/cashmere car coat I bought from the dreaded PG label years ago on "standby"...
