Yeah you're probably right... I suppose I was hoping for sort of 'gentlemen's country outfitters' with lambswool sweaters & rugged brogues!I avoid technical stuff for everyday wear but I do have a Patagonia jacket for hiking, some technical cycling gear, and one or two 'moisture-wicking' t shirts for exercising. Very purpose-specific though.
I'm going to be in the Lake District in a couple of weeks for the first time since family holidays in the 70s... any suggestions of shops to check out? Likewise I will be spending a few days in London and I'm curious if there's anywhere new that's popped up?
American Graffiti was huge for me as a (Scottish) kid, but I always had my eye on America... it's no wonder I ended up here. Small nitpick point Yankmod, American Graffiti isn't set in LA, it's set in the Central Valley (Modesto) although mostly filmed in San Rafael, north of San Francisco.
This is one of the variations of mine, McNaughton. Have a kilt in this tartan that I wore to get married 19 years ago, I'm wearing it to another wedding this year but I had to get it let out a bit! I've thought about having a harrington made with this lining. I also have a scarf of this tartan that my gran bought me years ago that I wear all winter. I am Scottish so I think I can get away with it ;)
I agree on the loafers and slip on shoes in general.Disagree on the monkey boots, as long as they're not the cheap'n'cheerful variety.White socks only for the gym.Turnups on jeans - always. I never wear leather or suede jackets, and haven't owned a leather jacket (it was kinda Fonzie/John Travolta in Grease style) since the 70s. I appreciate them on other people though. I just think they look weird on me. Would maybe do a suede Levi's trucker jacket but I prefer to keep my...
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!
