Cheers lads - definitely my favourite colour.
I have a linen jacket from Polo Ralph Lauren in a similar shade.

Had to make a quick trip to England.
Got some Swag in the Ben Sherman shop at the outlet ...

I remember the Ben S store on Spring St, too Rod.
Can't remember the first time I shopped there. I had to stop myself from spending too much, but there was definitely a change when I went back a year or 2 later... couldn't find one item I wanted.

Yeah itís so sad what happened there. I was getting to New York about once a month with work and used to love to walk along Spring Street for a variety of one-off shops along there. Plus the Fred Perry shop was around the corner (itís recently moved but still in the same vicinity) and Meermin and Suitsupply are nearby too.
I did get some bargains - a purple tonic suit and a pair of gold-yellow chinos - at knock down prices when they were closing but the shop as you say had become a shadow of its former self.

Same for me Mike. Iíve got a dozen or so badges from my youth kept for posterity in an old toffee tin but Iím usually seen out with a lapel pin of some sort. Usually a flag, occasionally a roundel, or a Union Jack Gibson guitar,  but I do have a few others including Northern Soul KTF!

Just got an email today from The Breton Shirt Company saying theyíve revived their green matelot shirt. I e had some stuff from them before and the quality is decent. Wait for the sales for an occasional price drop. Their sizes are on the small side so itís wise to size up if anyoneís interested.

Haha I remember reading that too Mike.
When you find yourself groaning getting in and out of an armchair itís time for an attitude adjustment!
Donít let the old man in, indeed!

Some interesting looking shades. Iíve spent silly money on sunglasses and may continue to do so but I donít see any from that brand that would get me to part with THAT much dough. Still an interesting brand revival.
The "Sixty One" looks cool, but with a run of "200", low production adds to the price.
Consider how long and how many millions of Aviators RayBan make and sell per year, those frames should be $5 a pop now, instead of $160 (especially since they're not Italian made in most instances)...

Yeah Iím still browsing (not one of my frenzied holy grail searches!) for a pair of brow line shades like your Olympians but my search is not intense as when Iíve tried on similar styles they didnít seem to suit me.

I like the look of the Moscot Simcha

https://moscot.com/products/simcha

But when I tried them on they were huge. I then had the idea of getting them custom made and requesting that they make the lenses half as tall as they are in the pics (they cut their own lenses in house). Two different people have told me they canít do that as thereís a wire that goes round the bottom of the lens. Iíve studied pics online and in their printed catalogue and I donít see it so Iíve shelved this plan h til I can get back to New York and see for myself in the shop.

I also tried on the JMM Seberg and was surprised how well they suited me but Iím not prepared to throw down that much cash for a style Iím not THAT desperate to own!

They come in a few variations but the bottle green lenses looked really cool.
