Thanks kickinstyle.Bad lighting and cell phones don't make for the best photos.Couldn't quite get the 2 tone quality.The 2 buttons and pockets are very early Mod maybe.I was a Hipster in Greenpoint(next to Williamsburg)before the influx of the last 10 years.Sad to see,I appreciate the positive feedback.        browniecj,I knew Little Queenie would take you to task about the girls back in the day.Big Up to Little Queenie. Lerk have a good trip I hope to make it to the U.K. one day.When you get back post some pics of the gear you pick up.

I don't think you can get any of those things at a reasonable price in London, but here are a few suggestions for starters, apart from the usual Carnaby Street shops (Merc, etc) and expensive places like John Simons or Brooks Bros:

 

 

Ben Nevis Clothing

237 Royal College Street

London

NW1 9LT

 

http://www.bennevisclothing.com

 

Cheap, but good-quality Harringtons (£34)

 

Mon - Fri : 9:30-18:00

Sat : 10:30-17:00

Sun : Closed

 

 

 

Stuarts

35-37 Uxbridge Road

Shepherds Bush,

London

W12 8LH

 

http://www.stuartslondon.com

 

Various, including Loakes (eg, Royals @£140 -- this compares with £165 from Brit Boot and £150 direct from Loakes).

 

Mon-Sat : 10:00-18:00

Sun : Closed

 

 

 

Adam of London

11 Portobello Green Arcade

281 Portobello Road

London

W10 5TZ

 

http://adamoflondon.com/

 

Off-the-peg suits, shirts etc

 

Tues-Thurs : 10:00-16:30

Fri-Sat : 10:00-17:30

Sun : 12:00-17:00

Mon: Closed

 

 

 

British Boot Co. (aka Holts)

 

5 Kentish Town Road

Camden Town

London

NW1 8NH

 

http://britboot.co.uk/

 

Footwear, but don’t buy anything there, as it's stupidly expensive

 

Mon-Sun : 10:30-19:00

Having - just the once - met Little Queenie, I can confirm she is, in fact, a delight.

And while Bob isn't (a delight) he is a a very amiable chap.

That is all. biggrin.gif

There's also Oi Oi the Shop in Camden Market. Bill's an early '80s Arsenal skinhead who started with a market stall amd now has an enormous shop in the downstairs by the army navy surplus shop. He's only open on fri/sat/sun at the moment but he carries a lot of nice gear. He has a good amount of second-hand brogues, boots, suits, Bens, etc plus new gear as well. Defo worth a mooch in.

I'd second that. Didn't know when he was open for business these days...

 

Plus, as has been suggested before, if you have the time and dosh, you might want to go down to Brighton for the day to Jump the Gun:

(Always thought Brighton was a dump, though...)

A quick aside to illustrate the far reaching influence of what some would describe as Mod fashion.I live 2 blocks from Route 66 (in the International Zone,the ghetto) In Albuquerque it's called Central Ave.A few miles west on 66 is the Ritzy,Trendy,Pretentious 1 miles stretch known as Nob Hill (if you ever vist ABQ def check it out)Just found a little boutique,been there a year.Operated by a capable young women.They got brit made Fred Perry twin tipped 75$ (an excellent price) chinese made slim fit FP. FP ties and sox and Cardi's and V-necks.A dozen suits 3 button 2 and 1 as well.Selvedge Jeans for 200$ (I've no need for these I wear Levi's) Different Brands.Some funky Jackets in different styles based on the Casual style.Fred Perry and small Brands some Japanese.I think there was a Stone Island.I was amazed to see this store as ABQ is 10 to 15 years behind the rest of the U.S.Looks like things are excelerating(trend wise)Probably the interwebs have somethin to do wit it.

Brilliant tips, i think will find most of what i'm looking for. I'm set for running back and forth thru london. :) Hope to squeeze in the odd pint of bitter in between the shopping locations.

Speak as i find, doll.

Still have that 'whistle' - assuming Bob has the tailor - for him.

My mate that is working out of 'Boro, I will get to pick it up and one of you may be able to hook up with him?

Yes, I'm a lardy bugger - but you've sen that - and the suit is too big for his trad frame but, you/he may be able to swop/sell/exchange for something that suits- pardon the pun.

it's a Jeff banks thing that lends itself - PoW - to adaption. (Worn twice... if that.)

I had spare money 20 years ago. satisfied.gif

Obviously: free, to a good home.
