Well I just went out shopping and had a look at the Clarks longwings,I like the tan ones ( and the boots),they seem quite well made I looked but there was no clue as to who made them,if they go into the sales I will have to have a pair. I also got a rollocking from my good lady as a parcel had been delivered to the neighbours and I opened it,a lovely Lyle and Scott lambswool blue tartan / check scarf just what I wanted.
Whoops sorry Mr Knightley,I was writing as you posted,hope that you didn't pay the full price for your Poste shoes,let us know what they are like. BTW,I notice that Clarks are also doing a pair of longwing boots in tan pebbled leather,now I like brogue boots and I like longwings but I am not sure about a longwing boot myself.   Yes seasons greetings to all the contributors to the thread ( and Mod to Suedehead )..I hope that you all get what you want for Christmas but if...
Just noticed that the sale in Office is now on,the elusive gibsons and other Poste shoes are reduced from £110 to £50 ! probably more like their true value I expect..
Clarks shoes...on  Mod to Suedehead,Ed mentioned Clarks longwings in a sale,the pictures looked nice so I had a look at Clarks site.   I was pleasantly surprised to find a few pairs of brogues longwing and the more traditional style, both look well made and very well priced at £110,but then there are reductions and if you have a shop around some places are offering the tan longwings ( pebbled leather) for £70 !.   Be interesting to know who is making these shoes and I...
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.
