I don't think its possible on SF to thumb yourself!  But you could vote for yourself when the poll goes up - not that you will need to!

A contest without challengers is boring.

Some great entries in the FC now and the 1960s seems to be proving popular!

 

Talking of the 60s I discovered a collaboration between Clarks and the V&A which has produced a small range of men's and women's shoes from that era - referencing the V&A  archives.  I was searching for low cut Chelsea boots at the time and the range has two options there and some new ideas on the classic dessie.  Check it out on Clarks website.

I see thumbs and votes do not necessarily tally.

The classic menswear lot seem to stumble when it comes to stuff that is not within (their definition of) classic menswear. You can see it when they try 'streetwear and denim' - it has something of the look of a window-dressed dummy - whereas we can look great fairly effortlessly in 'classic menswear'.

Funny i was thinking exactly the same over the weekend!

No, thumbs and votes don't often seem to relate MOM.

Anyway, don't forget to vote, chaps.  As it is multiple choice this week you can vote for all your 1960s / 70s favourites:nodding:

Just spotted this new thread on SW&D, which may be of interest to those who like to take pics of their feet!

 

@Clouseau could post the third-placed DM shoes!

Done ! DM Steed.

 

Well i've got the same in so-called oxblood (more of a cherry colour actually)

Okay so yesterday was charity shop day.

Not a sausage!

But, I got a Charles Tyrwhitt catalogue through the post, and noticed that I can get 4 of their Oxford weave shirts for £100, plus I have a £10 voucher, so that's £90. Now, these aren't 3-finger collar shirts, but they are so nice that I'm tempted by the green, the blue-and-white check, the dark blue and the Tattersall check.

Also, your local branch of New Look Men should have this suede trucker for £90. Worth a look? If I didn't already have an old suede trucker, I'd be tempted.





I think I've earned my commission.

I have reappraised the Charles Trywhitt Oxfords. I could just about live with the small collar, but not the collar insert in a contrasting colour. Scratch the above.

Thanks for the heads-up on the jacket, MoM.  I'll have a look in my local branch.

 

On Charles Tyrwhitt shirts, I have just acquired two.  Not Oxford cloth and not BD - mine are end-on-end fabric and really for work.  But I am surprised at the quality, the detailing as well as the cut.  All seem very good indeed on a shirt at this price. 

 

I happened to wear one yesterday and happened to take a pic or two here:

The problem with BD shirts from 'English' makers I find is they usually have one or two details that are incorrect.  I have a really nice checked BD from Hawes and Curtis but perversely they have not included a back pleat - why not?!
