I was in Office in Bristol this morning Mr K,and they didn't have the split toes either ( I looked in the branch at Cribbs Caseway last week and nothing),the shoes that I did look at today were a pair of Poste plain Gibsons they looked pretty good except they had a crepe sole ! why ?..I then went in Jones the bootmaker and had another look at the Barker Nairn..very nice,i am definitely tempted.
Thanks Mr Knightley. I went to H.o.F and tried on a long sleeve FP in light blue,the large was perfect for me,I did notice that they are slightly shorter than a normal FP though. I think that even with all these online bargains you cant beat trying an item on for size,there are so many variations.   I am still looking for a pair of brown or tan plain shoes,I had seen the Barker Nairn online but it looked a bit too "country" for me,however I saw a pair in cedar (tan) in...
Can anyone tell me about the sizing of Fred Perry polo shirts these days ?,I have seen a long sleeve polo on House of Fraser website,I am a 42" chest and I usually find large is ok but some times sizes are a bit "off" for instance I had to buy XL in a Barbour jacket.   Also whilst looking online I came across a pair of Gibsons with apron and split toe as worn back in the day ( as I remember them),on the Office site "Poste August",dont shoot me down if you have seen them...
 Excellent pictures,I particularly like the one of the lads in suits with the longer hair. Shows the dark coloured shirts worn with a tie that I remember,in fact the lad in the middle looks to be wearing the same navy blue Ben Sherman as I had,I wore mine with a white and navy striped silk tie something like the stripe tie in the picture.Looks like some are wearing 2 button 3 piece suits ? obviously that happened here but the button downs and hair that long didn't happen...
Double denim AND monkey boots !I think that small lads got a banner rather than a scarf  elwood.
Well I finally got my plain derby shoes with rubber soles yesterday,Loake Waverleys the same last as the Royal and although I have wondered about the toe shape of the Royal in the past I think that it looks good  on the plain version. A pity that Loake only do the Waverley in black though,I think that if they did it in Tan grain leather it would be a very nice looking shoe,and I would definitely buy a pair.
I thought the same,I am the same age as him and whilst I agreed with the adapting of school uniform with sta prest,BD and brogues I certainly don't remember the older lads asking me for style tips.
roytonboy,I am pretty sure that Brutus did some colourful tartan check ones,a red one and a blue and green one.I remember an older lad in Weymouth who worked for my relations wore a BD with pink and turquoise and white checks about 3/4" square,sounds horrible but I liked it then,not sure of make. I certainly didn't see blokes wearing clothes like the ones in "the other Margate" video, I think these blokes want to make a statement with big boots and bright colours,not sure...
I think that down here people seemed to want Levi jackets for a denim jacket, and Wrangler for cord jackets,although Levi did a stone coloured cord one and I saw a few of them being worn.
These are things of beauty and along with the Church Shannon perhaps the best of the English made plains that I have seen. Alas they are far to good ( and probably far too expensive ) for my needs..I am looking for a shoe to wear to football matches mainly,I will be wearing Farah trousers and an Aquascutum Harrington or a Barbour jacket ( navy),so I thought a nice pair of plain Derbys with dainite soles for the wet weather would fit in well.I don't want to look like an...
