I saw The Jam, sans Weller, play the other night. Their outfits looked NOTHING like the supposedly mod-influenced designs of today...
Okay, I work out at home, being lucky enough to have inherited a decent set of equipment from my old man. However, I'm thinking of branching out in the future as I'm getting toward the point of outgrowing my current rig, and if I do, I'll probably rock plain grey tshirts from some relatively cheap purveyor (Bonds etc). White shows too many marks, black fades when washed and I'll be wanting to machine wash this stuff frequently I gather. Shorts probably cotton too rather...
Thanks Whacked! I did find the link to the new one but it had virtually no content so I assumed that wasn't what I'd been hunting for! Cheers, FP
Hi all, Sorry to generate another thread, but I am struggling to find something even after a good deal of searching.

One thing that's always puzzled me though: Borrelli use such fantastic materials for everything, but their suit buttons are decidedly mediocre, and actually look a bit plasticky. No matter, as I'll replace them, but it still seems strange!
Champion mate! And from a new member too. I have been obsessing about it for days...i was on the verge of taking my laptop into the record store to ask.
