They are sold through a shop here in San Francisco called Union Made, and through the Union Made website. I've never seen them in any other shops. Pretty sure they ship internationally. http://unionmadegoods.com/
I haven't picked up any of their sport shirts but I stocked up on their $79 made in usa oxfords while they were doing them, such a bargain. They only did them in white, blue, and blue university stripe I think. Now they have expanded their made in usa line but have bumped the prices almost double. I recently picked up a pair of Clark's desert boots in Horween leather. They were made overseas like all Clark's now but at least I know the leather came from the US and is good...
Ralph Lauren, Coach, Banana Republic, J Crew, Levi's, The Gap, Ben Sherman, Fred Perry, and probably every other brand make products specifically for outlets or 'value channels'. Very few outlets these days use the 'flush model' (where end-of-line items are collected from the stores and transported to the outlets) - the price point doesn't justify the cost of transportation. It's easier to just mark down everything to 75% off at the end of the season and clear it out. They...
It's the nicest-looking of the bunch (without trying anything on), and in reference to an earlier post about going with the original maker/country of origin of something, it IS a Mackintosh, so the authenticity is there. If money was no option, this is the one I would go for. As it is, I wouldn't get the wear out of this to justify the price.
I get what you're saying Mr Knightley but 'sad bastards' is a bit extreme - they are getting dressed up and having a good time with friends which is one of the best things to do in life. I haven't looked through all the pics and it's easy to look dated but I bet they looked better than 99% of the other revellers on Sauchiehall Street that Saturday!
Looks like the Barbour one is out of stock everywhere online - in the UK you might get lucky in a shop, they're thin on the ground here. I have a hard time with most Ben Sherman stuff these days - the price isn't justified by their offshore production. Quality is close to H&M or Zara but at usually triple the price (with the exception of their recent Duke Street Foundry line).Golden Bear here in California have a nice line in outerwear, including a version of a harrington....
As for trainers I have a few different pairs of different Adidas originals in varying colours/styles that I hang about in on weekends but would never wear 'out'... on summer days I will wear a pair of white Spring Court lo-cuts, they remind me of the plimsouls we used to wear for gym in high school and seem ivy/mod enough to go with most of what else I might be wearing in the summer (usually chinos and a short sleeve button down or a polo). They are French and claim to be...
That Barbour Sedgwick jacket looks pretty good... we've not had much rain this year in California but I might look for one of these on sale in preparation for the next rainy season.
The Barbour's great on the bike (it has interior removable protective padding and is nice and warm even without the zip-in lining) and I was up in St Andrew's in January and I used it as my winter coat, worked a treat. I remember the discussion on the other board, not sure why I never chimed in. I remembered this clipping that was posted by designer Grahame Fowler of scooterists in Barbours... they have mod haircuts but are described in the text as 'Mockers' because of...
Those brogue boots third from the left on the top shelf look the business!
