I have been known to be a bit of a whore when it comes to having me photo taken, so I'm sure I'll have popped up on many sites I've never seen.
(hopefully not with un-done) Buttons

After the checks, Ben Sherman did a range of 'dark plains' including red, navy, black, orange, lime green, bright yellow etc. Seen all of them in short and long sleeve. From what I can gather, they were a 65 / 35% Poly cotton blend that was so popular at the time with the "sta-pressed" craze (on the back of the likes of ICI developing a range of easy care fabrics a few years previous).

Try ironing an original Ben Sherman Vs a heavy Brooks Brothers oxford cotton, with a 60s iron ..... that's a good 20 minutes later you're getting to the pub!

I have heard an 'expert' claim that it takes precisely 27 minutes to iron a long sleeved shirt properly! I assume this includes putting in any collar bones, hanging and buttoning it but that is still a long time...

Sirryacus. Yes a Sweater vest. I always thought that the football ( soccer to you ) clubs are missing out on a money spinner with fairisles,for instance West Ham Utd could bring out a fairisle in light blue,claret and white, even make the crossed hammers as part of the fairisle design...bring it out just before christmas £15 a time and sell thousands as presents from the grandkids to old geezers like me !

Could they really ever sell a 100% wool sweater that cheap in 2013? I don't think so.

post #13088 of 18598
Sirryacus. You are right it would have to be acrylic at that price.
post #13089 of 18598

Don't get me wrong I've got 100% wool at the price but it was in the close out phase.

Over the years i think we've been fooled regarding what we should expect to pay for good quality clothing.

Top designer labels charging top coin for inferior products etc etc

Whilst there is the odd exception to the rule, you get what you pay for imo

I heard that the word can't be traced back to any Native American language, and it has been speculated that it is a word in early North American 'pidgin' (for want of a better term) deriving from the Gaelic of Scottish settlers - 'mo chasan' meaning 'my footwear' - although some reference sources give the Algonquian word 'makasin'.

Now we are really off-topic!

Ties...When i wore a tie it was usually a striped one,i remember that i bought a white and navy stripe tie to wear with the navy blue Ben Sherman that i mentioned in another post.In later years i developed a liking for silk paisley ties of which i have several.Recently i have been looking for some plain colour ties also polka dot ones.I suppose that ties are a personal choice but how do you remember the situation back then ? ( preferred colours/designs ) did you match them with pocket handkerchiefs ? and now are there any colours/designs that are a no no ?.

roytonboy. Do you still avoid red when buying clothes ?, it was always the case here that our lot never wore red, Pressure_Drop may know if this is still the case ? but i would guess that it is. As i dont go anymore i dont feel that i have to abide by that unwritten rule and i have several red polo shirts. The last match i attended was in Berlin a couple of years ago Union Berlin v 1860 Munich,it was minus 15 degrees c..it was a bit like an early 70s match,the stadium was mostly standing, there was a lot of noise,some fans were dressed in 70s hooly style ( scarves and denim ), i think that the crowd was 13000 and i was told there were 600 police there...i enjoyed it and as we left there was a Union supporter dressed skinhead style, he had the look right for a match day i thought.

I was discussing  cerneabbas idea of a £15 sweater which isn't a quite common occurrance for a 100% wool sweater but I've got them for that price in the past, I would never pay the prices of this darcy clothing, I will admit its not a bad price for wool though its just not something I can do as the ultimate bargain hunter, besides I don't get many opportunities to wear wool where I live far too warm most of the year.
