What about a first Look Goes On/Mod To Suedehead Paris meet-up in February ? I know Cerneabbas is interested, and MoM and Browniecj were thinking about a Paris trip in 2017 (well maybe not in February - could be damn cold here - but with the global warming the cold Paris winters are not like they used to be), and maybe Mr K might be interested as well ? (the next Winter sales last until february the 14th) … Matt let us know your dates ASAP ...

Now as I cant find either style for less than £265 anywhere else whats the catch ?

 

The last few weeks have been very humid here and the Madras shirts that I bought from Lands End have been ideal, they are sold out in large now but I hope they keep the same style collar next year and I will get another one.

Finally got round to looking at the website, which I had never heard of before.

 

Cooling down now so I'm looking around for some autumn footwear.  Not sure about that site somehow - as you say where's the catch?  I couldn't find much of a description of the items but no worse in that way than some 'pukka' sites.

 

I am moving towards some low-rise Chelsea boots a little higher than the Clarks x V&A 'Swixty Step' that I bought in the spring, which incidentally are very comfortable and wearing well considering the very modest £110 price tag.  So may go for some other Hardy Amies-inspired design from Clarks.

Sounds good.  I typically have very little time in any given city, but once in a while there's an exception!  I sure hope that's the case with Paris.

Some good outfits for a change

I'm running joint third. The leader is rightfully running away with it but with a bit of a late push I could sneak the runner up spot.
Vote early - vote often lads!

Yes I always think 'if it sounds to good to be true it probably isnt true' so I didnt bother trying my luck.

 

Re Chelsea boots,I had a catalogue recently from 'House of Bruar' they have some Chelsea boots that look good (in the pictures) for £99.95.

Also some 'Northampton style' shoes that look good,particuarly the Chestnut Gibsons with Dainite sole, they call them 'Bruar R.im shoes' ( an unfortunate name imo) £149.95 in the catalogue or £175 online.

I think that the Bruar shoes might be made by Berwick in  Spain,supposed to be Goodyear welted...the Bruar waxy leather shoes in the pictures are Berwick 1707 labelled.

 

I got a nice royal blue Pima cotton RL polo a month or so back from Zee,it was well reduced ( I cant remember the exact price) I notice that they have the same shirt in grey for £37,its nice soft material with a shirt type collar rather than a normal polo collar,at half price its worth a look (imo).

RE: House of Bruar.  I've looked and looked on their website, and it all looks very enticing.  I've only ordered a v-neck lambswool sweater and a tie from there, but both were nice, not exorbitantly-priced, etc.

Retrieved my bedale waxed jacket from the loft, wondering if it was safe to wear again. Thinking of getting a liddesdale quilted jacket to make a pair for rain/cold, safe to wear now?



One repair so far, needs reproofing and torn cuffs repairing. Maybe hems too but not sure of the sound of a 'leatherette' repair. Bored wearing retired mountaineering-type stuff for the local walk in the woods.

(and good to see cerneabbas back)

The Liddesdale will go on and on in my experience.  Mine is about 11 years old and still as good as new - just had the sleeves shortened slightly ready for the new season.

^ good to know. True to form it looks like there are now two different liddesdales, one 'classic' and one 'heritage'. Think the classic is the real one (cheaper too!), just hope the classic are still made in the UK.

Lavenham seem like a good alternative to Barbour...

I like the imprint of the interior pocket, also the more defined edging detail

raydon-mens_c2_1_12_1.jpg

With its shorter length I could easily see a (lost) skinhead modern look adopting this, had the look been allowed to develop beyond the 80s instead of becoming mired in 'spirit of 69' archaeology.

I like the Lavenham.  More expensive but, as you say, with nicer detailing.

 

I have looked at the Barbour website and think I still prefer the classic Liddesdale.  Mine is what is now called the 'rustic' colour and I wear it quite small, not being a fan of the quited jacket as overcoat look.  I think the collar, which is still generous on the current model, has got smaller over the years.  Mine is pretty massive.

With you on the smaller fit. Wouldn't want it looking like Hilda Ogden's 70s housecoat.

Lavenham is made in England too, which matters I think. Some other made in England stuff

Down-filled clothing

Rucksacks

(more authentic than that 'herschel' bollocks)

I see you have made a recent entry in the WAYWRN 25 thumb minimum composite thread.  Congrats!

Cheers. That was from last May!
There are some nice pics on that thread but it's living proof how skewed the whole 'thumbs' thing is. As far as I know that's my one and only inclusion on that thread, I'm fairly confident there's a few other pics I've posted that look better than a lot of what has made it to 25 thumbs. (Not bitter at all, honest!biggrin.gif)

I agree entirely and remain all at sea where thumbs are concerned . To his credit Clags proposed a thread where you could discuss why you felt a good outfit had failed to make the cut-off. He suggested people put up posts that had scored 15 - 24 thumbs, for example, for discussion.

Good idea but there were no takers...
