Probably cos proposing someone else's pics would look like arse licking and proposing your own would look like a desperate cry for approval. And we can't have any of that around here can we?biggrin.gif

Good idea but there were no takers...

Yup! I think I was the only person who ever actually posted in that thread :-(

I'll give it another go at some point!

To be clear, TWD, the purpose of the thread was criticism. By "Why an outfit didn't make the cut," people were meant to explain what wasn't working with the outfit, not what the audience got wrong/missed

Just idly browsing myself and really like the lovat green hot pink

Good to see you on here sir!  Thanks for confirming the exact idea of the thread.  FWIW I hope you do attempt to revive it.

We often seem to talk about the House of Bruar at this time of year :

I bought this Smedley-style piece last autumn but have never worn it.  Nice to look at but an odd cut puts me off.  Maybe this year?

 

Mrs K loves their stuff especially the shoes and has a few pairs of their brogues, which look good and wear very well.

^ and it's not like it's easy to try stuff on, the place is fairly remote even for Scotland. Handy for the Sleeper though - go to sleep in Euston and wake up at House of Bruar. That could be our meet in 2019 (via the drinking car)!

It opens up a prospect!

Completely different to the Sports Direct crap, even the logo is sleeker.

Just seen this again. That looks an interesting site. What are they like to deal with?

The V neck that Covskin bought is really nice.

There are some Slazenger Heritage items in a sale on the Atom Retro site,not the V neck unfortunately.

 

My GF bought me the Grey RL pima polo from Zee and Co,at half price I feel well pleased that I got a bargain,lovely material and a nice fit...the 2 occasions that I have bought from them I have received the items within 36 hours,the couriers were very efficient and notified me when they were coming I wish all online transactions were so painless.

 

Woolovers...I bought their Wool Rib cardigan in French blue,it arrived today,it could definitely be described as 'chunky' it weighs about the same as a Crombie,lovely colour and seems well made ( the 'football' buttons are plastic though) the ribbing reminds me of the old army 'woolly pully',my only reservation is will it ever be cold enough to wear it (I broke into a sweat trying it on ), £49 including delivery,I looked about for quite a long time but I couldnt find anything that I liked better in a mid blue colour.

Their clothes look to be good quality but most of it was too 'country' for me,as you say the V necks,a couple of shirts and a few other items,but I do wonder who buys some of the more extreme country stuff ?  Chinese tourists maybe ? or 'eccentric academics' ?.

Speaking of knitwear (strange as it's damn hot here today) i spotted this FP Waffle knit cardigan

 

http://www.fredperry.jp/category/M_KNIT/F3161.html

 

I really like the blue one, but none in my size.

The small text on the left seems to refer to SKINS who wore this kind of cardigan in the time...

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)


Cheers mate..

I dont see many Barbours about here these days so I think that its a good time to wear one,I have worn mine very few  times since I bought it,it has to be quite cold weather as the lining is quite thick,but if its very cold (and dry) I have better coats / jackets.

For a cold /wet day I prefer a jacket with a hood,I bought a Barbour hood for my jacket but it does look quite agriculural with hood attached,I have to say that its a purchase that I probably should not have made.

I did look at quilted Ma1 style jackets last year to wear under a coat for more warmth but I bought a micro fleece in a sale,wouldnt wear that without being covered by a coat though.

Looks really good,I prefer the tonal logo.

I remember waffle V necks being worn here about 1980 (ish), they were quite mainstream but I saw lots of young Skins wearing them.

Yep it was the acrylic version most often in the 80s...

It was an item worn by the 'originals' too, most probably wool at the time ?

You can hardly see the logo on the blue FP japan one. Nice.
