This is an original from a company called IZOD who are still going and have some BD's etc (http://izod.com/product-categories/dress-shirts/).

 

They are best known apparently for their short-sleeved piqué polo shirt, formerly produced by Lacoste and featuring the Lacoste crocodile on the left breast and the Harrington jacket G-9 model:

Remember seeing a website with stripy board tops like these and thought they looked good, an old US brand apparently but the name hasn't stuck.

Yay, here it is

Something for the holiday/beach look? Prefer the arm pocket myself (and those navy, white/red colours remind me of some casual tracksuit top or other from back then).

It looks a bit like a monkey jacket. Im told monkey jackets were big news after the 66 World Cup, mostly because they resembled the England tracksuit top

I agree re the pockets, although probably better without one at all...

I should love to see a pair 'in the flesh' before buying.

Oh well, wanted sole and upper with minimal contrast to avoid the baseball boot look but none in sand and I don't like the black with black sole (want a change from black anyway). So looks like I will have to call into a Clarks shop in Europe lol.

I know some of you are still keen to try another London get together in late autumn.  I guess we would be looking at November if we do go ahead.

 

Is there any appetite for this?

 

Cheers

I'll definitely try to come if there is another meet up. Depends of the date though. :)

For the Friday challenge I wore some rather outré Jeffery West ankle boots - it's starting to feel autumnal!

Boots and suits was not really part of my look back in the day and I find it no easier now...
(Poll is just up)
