  Heh, I thought you Belgians liked a splendid Poirot-style moustache? :-)
  All parts of the three-part series are now up. A little editing here and there has been done since initial version. Phew!   Nick
I wasn't really too sure where to post this, but thought this might sort of work out...   Part 3 of my longwinded "What I did on my holidays", or "A long weekend of walking in London"   Part 1 contained mostly musings about Cabourn (http://www.styleforum.net/t/209255/nigel-cabourn/2730#post_6148411)   Part 2 was about my visit to SEH Kelly (http://www.styleforum.net/t/277070/s-e-h-kelly/90#post_6149752)   This one will be about the rest. I'll start by...
Ok, part 2 of "What I did in my holidays" follows:   (Part 1 can be found http://www.styleforum.net/t/209255/nigel-cabourn/2730#post_6148411)   So, after poking around Trunk, Present and sundry other places, I was ready to visit the SEH Kelly workshop on saturday morning. They're normally only open at weekends, hence why I'd not yet been to the primary goal of my trip. I'd never been to the Shoreditch area before (or so I thought, turned out I'd actually been...
Ok, so I'm back from my long weekend in London, and a few folks have asked me to report back on my findings. So here goes!   First off, I'd bought a few items in the Marrkt and Superdenim sales before going over, so they were waiting for me at my friends house. I naturally had high expectations, as this was more Cabourn stuff and even though I got good deals on most of the items, they were intially spendy pieces, like all Cabourn. So, what do I think of the...
Good info! Many thanks.
  Cool idea, thanks! I got myself the book for Xmas, though haven't really looked too much at it. Looks like they have a shop in Covent Garden, that should be fun.
  So far, nothing at all is catching my interest... Oh, apart from the two-tone cricket vest, as previously discussed. That is quirky cool and something I'd like to pick up once prices drop. I've already got 3 Mallorys, so I think I'm ok for that style, although I might like a Tenzing for summer use.   I'm flying to London tomorrow though and will drop by Trunk, and maybe Present, on Friday for a look and feel. I've got a pair of Harris Tweed Bombay pants, an Ink Vest and...
  Nice collection! I have 3 of those, plus 2 Harris Tweed variants.
  You're probably right. Given that they only make about 500 each of Mallorys and Cameramen each season, and that the main share of that goes to Japan, there are a good few that hit the sales. Of course, some of those are like the hideous orange Mallorys that USHOWU has a full range of (...), but even the popular choices normally have a fair selection spread around.   Granted though, for the business model to even enjoy a modicum of success, they must be primarily aiming...
