Like Sherman tanks! Very nice. I have a black smooth leather pair that they made for Brooks Brothers a while back. Real snazzy. Are the ones in the link cordovan?
The MA-1 has been discussed in this forum ad nauseum, and it was determined that while not widespread, they were worn by some originals in some parts of the country.A real-deal MA-1 with the wool pile lining in the original sage green is a thing of beauty and is a far cry from the '82 glue-huffer uniform of amorphous shape and dodgy coloring. Having said all that, the Brutus/Edwin/Alpha link in question is, well... questionable...
Good God.
Those are some Parisian skinheads from the bands MARABOOTS and LION'S LAW, the latter of which is playing here in Boston in about a week. Paris has a pretty good skinhead scene, with a lot of proper dressers though the scene is mostly geared towards Oi! and hardcore.
Slightly off-topic but relevant to some of the younger skinheads who may lurk on here: Colin McQuillan of Belfast Oi! band RUNNIN' RIOT, died in his sleep last night while on tour in England. I'm lucky to have counted him a dear friend. "Gone too soon, forever young". Sleep well my brother.

Ahhhh, I suppose you're right-- the look of a man wearing shorts is pretty childish for the most part. I certainly don't LIKE to wear shorts, but some environs my work takes me to are of a veritably disgusting hot and humid atmosphere. I like to look put-together in said environs without looking like I'm melting into a puddle of sweat.😄I guess my question should have been about a Tropical Equivalent version of "the Look"
Yeah that was me with the MR perma-prest recommendation. Great pair of trews. I fould defo see the merit in dyeing them a bit of a 'softer' tone like an off white and have been considering doing just that.I found the same problem with the BBros Milano in reference to their low rise(a lot of slim chinos like Dickies' slim ones go for a really low rise for some reason) and thus dig the Clark chinos... Not as trim but I dig 'em! Their lightweight version is a nice thin...
I'll wear a polo buttoned up under a jacket, cardigan, or sweater. Without something over it, it's always top undone. Except, of course, for the Smedley polos. As already said, they look pretty shabby when the top button's undone.It might be the way I move or my build, but an unbuttoned polo shirt collar looks untidy on me when worn under another article of clothing.I do agree one the "untucked with shorts" rule. Here in "Nova Inglaterra" it's way too "yuppie yacht...
   Indeed it does, sir.  Indeed it does.
