Oh dear.....where can i find a gentleman's forum.....I'm quite sure that's not right.
A recent purchase, a pair of Bladen wool trousers with buttons for traditional braces. At the rear where the back brace attaches there is what looks like a cotton hook......what is that for?
Ok so the shirt is here, came last week but I just didn't have time to mention it. It is fine, the fit is very nice according to my wife but i think i would have preferred an extra inch on the shoulders. Will post a photo or two when I get round to it...
