Love the Kaftan- don't think I could pull it off (just turned 40) but would consider one in black or brown for myself

I'm 43 but thought you  know what  I like  the style and I'm going to try it. My wife liked it and  my mates thought it was excellent  when I wore it  out the weekend I got  it.  8)

Can I say that's stunning mate, really cracking design and colour. I'm pushing 50 so would struggle to pull off a Kaftan, but would wear a shirt in the same fabric.

Just ordered two Mikkel Rude long sleeve shirts - pink and tartan - on the 2 for 1 deal thats on their website at the moment. A very welcome offer. And a whole lot more welcoming than the bloke modelling them whose expression suggests that, given half the chance, would quite like to punch my lights out.

That made me laugh so much I almost spat my tea over the keyboard. They both look like a right pair of "wrong 'ens" don't they. I envisgae them being chased by Regan & Cater in an episode of the Sweeney driving a Mk 3 Ford Cortina, beige with a brown vinyl roof.

Maybe more Bodie and Doyle  :)
To be fair them blokes modelling the shirts, are just normal blokes as opposed to sickly, androgynous,young male models that you would see on an ASOS, or Fred Perry webpage. Makes a welcome change.
34 waist. 32 leg. 42/43 chest. size 9 shoe/boot

Got a Hackett London Crombie for  20 on eBay.
Like this one: http://www.hackett.com/catalog/product/view/id/19976/s/outerwear-cashmere-blend-coat/category/157/?color=59

Think mine is an older version though as it's 75% wool 25% cashmere, so even better that I got it for 20.

Thanks Steve. Rich who  makes  the  Shirts, could  definitely make you a more suitable design in that fabric. Whether  it  be a  penny  collar, a button down etc. His website  has  gone  live  now. He is also on facebook. Really  nice  bloke and really  helpful.

I can't find this design? Oi Polloi had them but were out of stock in my size when I last looked. Seem to have replaced the design with this one now:



I still like the look of the original, but at 60 still nicer than the Wiggo/FP range

Here you go mate, gonna pick one up myself on payday.

Shirts arrived from that there Continent this morning - and bleedin' 'ansome they are too.

Is it wrong to admit getting an extra tingle of excitement from the Danish stamps on the parcel?
