Looks like a decent, slim-fitting, Baracuta type harrington to me.  And for six clams?  I wouldn't be complaining!

 

  Only real criticism would be the crew neck undershirt and a busy plaid shirt paired with a harri'; the choo hoo hat is obviously a matter of personal taste.

I will trawl through and see if i can post them here.

I did buy a pair to wear when cold but lost one. I think ill get a new pair. Dents do some nice ones IMO.

 

 

PS. some shirt porn for you all. Arrived today, new tailored one..

 

 

 

 

 

Yeah, nice details on that shirt!  Sleeve cuffs are nice, and the button jobbie on 'em looks pissa!  

  Collar's got a nice roll to it, too.

Very nice shirt indeed, where did you get it done? 

And by the way, are there any decent places on the net to get a shirt of ones own design? I've found some, but i dont know about their quality, since i tend to buy shirts in physical stores.

Thanks Botolph.Always wear the crew neck(others are unconfortable) Don't like hats but since I lost my hair gotta do it (sunblisters bad in the desert)Saw some cheaper knock offs XL.The Lands End isn't so bad.Probably more Polyester than most of these cats would prefer.

I've got a lot of pals doing the omnipresent hat thingie for the same reason.  No shame in it.  I usually wear an undershirt(especially with light colored shirts to avoid tattoos showing through shirt) but hate it peeking out from the collar, so i always opt for the v-neck undershirt unless wearing a tie.

  As far as a cotton/poly blend harri', I believe a lot of them aren't 100% cotton.

Oh man, the visible crew neck tee is a serious pet peeve of mine; "American Cravat" is a hilarious moniker(and no actual offense meant to Yank mod).

"To me, I always thought the gloves were a Soul thing .........."

 

Ah, but to some of us the Soul and the style are inseparable! 

post #11259 of 18914

Two gloves usually worn. The gloves were sported by lads and girls.

... as long as you are happy mate.

There are - as yet - no govenment laws dictating what we should wear, and life's too short - please yourself, first. biggrin.gif

Any of you guys familiar with samuel smith's nut brown ale? I picked up a very old bar mirror with their logo on it and I seem hard pressed to find many old articles or vintage items for sale that bear their insignia, it all seems to be mostly newer items for sale.
