Hi.

I'm getting no email notifications at all, no matter what my profile says I'm subscribed to. That includes notifications of private messages, threads, whatever. I can't recall clicking any 'unsubscribe' message in an email. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Well let's see if you have a notification for this one !

 

M-o-M, i remember you were searching for a navy button down. A reasonable option is the Uniqlo OCBD. 19,90 quids. Pure oxford cotton. Great value i think. I just bought a pastel (or light mint) green one, they do one in blue and one in navy.  Nice cut, good quality, the collar is not a 'three fingers', rather a two and a half. I wore a sky blue one at the last meet up (see picture on the precedent page.) The 'slim fit' is not too slim and true to size.

Looks nice, Monsieur. Do they only do a slim fit?

They do both. I only experimented the slim fit version though (standard, not 'easy care')...

There are, from time to time, interesting items at Uniqlo, even if it's a 'high street' shop. 

Japanese are long time fans of Ivy league and Mod fashion, so the design of certain of their items is 'mod to suedehead' friendly. 

Their oxford shirt is a good example i think. The pattern is very close to the old american classic OCBD. The collar is not too big, but speaking of 'the look', i'll quote J.Simons : 'the first Button-Down shirts we had from America were called Tigers foot...The collars were quite small.'

Nope.

Merde.

Thanks for the tip about the shirt. I actually got one at the local department store before it shut for good (1868 - 2016) along with a three-finger Gant - light blue with a thin stripe.

I've sent in a request for you to be added back onto the sendgrid list.  Hopefully, this happens today.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

Sigh,

 

Not going to lie to you, the service we've been receiving has not gotten the highest marks.  I'll ping them again.

 

Cheers,

This week's FC here http://www.styleforum.net/t/520533/friday-challenge-20160401-are-you-a-cardican-or-a-cardicant is an interesting one. 

 

Only Cleav and I from our little group have entered - perhaps reflecting the fact that a cardigan teamed with a tailored jacket was not really part of the Look?

 

Anyway voting has now started.

On a recent trip to Southport along with Mrs Mystery and family friends, we dropped into what was essentially a handbag shop at one end of Lord Street. They were having a sale, and Mrs Mystery was looking for a new bag. As well as handbags, they had a few items of ladies' leather clothing, and, to my surprise, a small rack of gents'. On that rack were a couple of leather blazers, black, tailored, three-button, flap-pocket, brand name 'Aviatrix'. I tried on the size M, and of course it was too small, but Mrs Mystery and her style-conscious friend agreed the style was totally 'me'. The shopkeeper had just sold the last size L. The sale price was £50...

So basically, that was the one that got away.

However, I recall that in the 1960s, leather and suede blazers were a mod item. Do any of you wear one, I wonder?

I always liked them.

 

On the other thread, i spoke of this band's look that inspired me (wooly hat, 1461 DMs, red socks, white T-shirt, leather jackets...), among others, in 1980.

Note the jacket of the singer (that i later discover was an 'original' ) and the guitarist on the left.
