I have only been in Brooks Bros at Bicester outlet centre,I was disappointed with what they had there compared with what you see on their website,I suppose that they decide what they think will sell well here from their catalogue,I guess that what old skinheads in England may like doesn't figure in their thoughts ( unfortunately). Austins was the shop here about 69 to 71 where you went to get anything skinhead / suedehead clothes wise,Levis,Sta Prest including two...
I think that Brooks Bros probably attracts me because I was so influenced by the clothes and styles that I saw on TV here in the mid to late 60s,a lot of American made programmes being shown here then,the clothes colours looked lighter and there was a sharper look than I saw adults wearing over here. Funny that you mention the overcoat,since attending the funeral a few months ago when I mentioned how smart a lot of the men looked in Crombie style coats,my thinking has been...
The Madison look good but on the Brooks Bros UK site they are £130 which is a bit too expensive for me, the other thing about Brooks Bros is every time I see a shirt I like they aren't available here.. I was going to ask a while back if there is one store or brand that epitomises 'the Look', IMO if there is its probably Brooks Bros ?  some of the trousers,shirts,raincoats and some of the shoes look just right to me.
I have been looking for a plain,navy,light weight wool,flat front trousers for the warmer weather,up until a couple of years ago M&S would have been the place for me to go,times have changed. Whilst searching online I had a look at Next suits and tailoring,theres a lot there which is not seen in their stores ( to be honest I don't go in Next very much), Italian wool suits,Harris Tweed jackets etc. I quite like the look of a blue herringbone Haris Tweed jacket and some of...
That explains why I failed to find them in my brogue search,as you say quite beautiful...and hard to find anything like them now.
I remember that you put up a picture of your tan Cheaney brogues Mr Knightley,which ones are they ?.
The Stepneys seem to be out of production now,I guess that's why these were reduced selling the last ones off,but the Alfred Sargent Romney look the same shoe to me,its on the same last.I had a look for those Robinsons that you have but they don't have them advertised now,and the AE Macneill wasn't available in walnut in my size over here ( in fact I read that its now discontinued).I know the dainite soles are a contentious issue,I like them particularly in the wet,yes a...
I have bought shoes from Herrings and been happy with their service,but they had nothing that I fancied in brown brogues.Finding anything that I liked that was still being made was a bit of a quest.
Thanks Cleav. Yes that picture is a good one,thats exactly how these look,caught the colour just right,thats the toe shape that I prefer.
I bought a M+S black 'harrington' a few years ago its not bad material,button up cuffs and no tartan lining,looks ok with trousers. Donkey jackets,I cant see myself ever wearing one again,theres warmer and waterproof jackets now that are more practical,and they never were the most stylish coat,like sheepskins IMO a thing of the past.I do agree that lefty types,students and champagne socialists liked Donkey jackets I suppose they felt it gave them some 'working class...
