Covskin, that is very smart looking gear right there.

^ thanks mate! There is another one I can do with navy slazenger, fawn chinos and sand suede boots.





A bit less formal, a bit more summer. Once again an 'in between' outfit. 501s on the bottom for pub/weekend and blazer and shirt on top (maybe stripey 'club' tie) for something smarter.

Modern Vernacular, that's me - modern within a tradition.


LOL, Reminds me of what Jonny Rotten once said about communism which was something like: "Can you imagine that, it would be all flared overalls, sandals and folk clubs - hideous!"

Although I havent got a problem with the clothes ( I would wear all of it,except I havent ever had chinos) I do have a problem with James Bond wearing it.

I looked at some pictures from Casino Royale and thought wtf ?,chinos,leather bomber jacket etc surely more Harrison Ford or Steve Mcqueen than James Bond ?

Bond was always dressed in a suit,in the hot countries it was a lightweight suit, in Thunderball (the book) he wore sandals with a suit,occasionally he took his jacket off,this was in  Nassau.

I just cant imagine James Bond in a leather bomber jacket,its like Steve Mcqueen wearing a onesie or Crocs...

Yep, Bond would never wear chinos. I think of Bond as being appropriately (if not always correctly) dressed, and all out of his suitcase. A fairly good model really.

The classic Bond menswear image we are referring to could only be the 60s Connery incarnation.
By the time Roger Moore took over the look had succumbed to 70s lapels and even the odd splash of brown- beige.
Ps What do you get if you cross James Bond with the Great British Bake Off?
Creamfinger starring Sean Granary.

I posted this image on Mod to Suedehead recently.
Have recently moved further down the line to Surrey, and found them in a charity shop for 45 quid each.
They are all Churches in roughly a size 7.
Ps This is Skinny Legs- Change of phone, forgot forum password etc etc

Welcome back...if the Plains are Church Shannons they are now about £450..shoes seem to have got more expensive this year.

The Church's Shannons are some of my favorites. Dressed up or down fhey're great. Built like a sherman tank, too.
I can't believe they're that dear now though. Yowch!

By the way there's a series of very unflattering comments on shoesnop regarding Church's decline in quality, mostly since they were bought out by Prada.

I will have to disagree with that Mr Skinny Fruit. I bought during the last summer sales a pair of Church's Oreham (at a great price), and the overall quality seems almost perfect. They didn't need any breaking in and were comfy at once (last time i experimented the same thing was with Church's Burwood bought 30 years ago). The leather is of great quality and very supple, and i'm sure they will last a long time.

Interesting. I'm not sure as to when Prada bought Church shoes, but I have a pair of the "light ebony" Shannons from about six(?) years ago that are like foot fortresses, and just bought a pair in the "sandalwood" color about 1 1/2 years ago and I neither see nor feel the difference in quality.
What might be the case is that some of Church's lower lines' quality has suffered since the buyout.
Luckily, my Shannons will probably last until Rapture!
