I've ran into this guys website before researching shoes and he charges ridiculous prices I don't see how he ever sells anything.post #13099 of 199066/22/13 at 5:29ampost #13100 of 199066/22/13 at 5:51ampost #13101 of 199066/22/13 at 6:21amQuote:Nice - if expensive.Originally Posted by Gsvs5
Here's a beauty in Cashmere at 1/2 price.($159.00)
Here's one - kid left of the corner flag - from Ipswich v Man United 1970... it will (probably) have been wool and possibly cost around £3.00.post #13102 of 199066/22/13 at 7:06amQuote:
With inflation that should only cost £ 18 today especially since they are dealing in slave labor nowadays something is terribly wrong.post #13103 of 199066/22/13 at 7:38amQuote:Originally Posted by cerneabbas
Pressure_Drop, Sorry to let the side down with my John Smedley ignorance,i have looked at a lot of their clothes online since i discovered this site.I dont think i will be getting any though,expensive knitwear is the sort of thing that i bugger up quite easily when washing it. After the posts last week on fairisles i looked on e bay but couldnt find any,my girlfriend suggested that i look under tank tops which i did and found some fairisles.Main colours navy or white or green or grey,about £23 they are acrylic though which i dont really like.IMO tank tops and fairisles are different things,i think this has been mentioned on here before,we called tank tops a sleeveless, round ( scoop ? ) neck with horizontal stripes of solid colour....horrible! and worn with the round collar shirts.I think that there was one being worn on the cover of a Richard Allen book,Boot boys ? Smoothies ?.
cerneabbas, you're right about the cover of the Richard Allen book "Bootboys" - one of the lads was wearing one of those scoop neck sweaters with horizontal rainbow stripes. They've been referred to (a lot) earlier on the thread as "bee jumpers" I think. Never knew them by that name round my way. But I will confess to having had one exactly the same as on the book cover, except mine was white not black. Mine was also long-sleeved; they were available sleeveless or with long sleeves. Had mine in 1971 I'm pretty sure, so by end of year would have indeed been wearing it with round collar shirts. Definitely something I could never imagine wearing againpost #13104 of 199066/22/13 at 7:42amQuote:Originally Posted by cerneabbas
Mr Knightley, I dream of a smart dressing revival to counter the scruffiness of modern Britain.Maybe the G8 leaders dressing down could be a good thing,who wants to look like a politician.I remember in the 70s the Jeremy Thorpe scandal,the old sleezer would be on the news every night wearing a crombie with a velvet collar,it put me right off them he looked like a seedy upper class teddy boy.
I don't think you're alone in that dream, cerneabbas ... like your comment about possible benefit of the G8 dress down toopost #13105 of 199066/22/13 at 7:46ampost #13106 of 199066/22/13 at 7:48amQuote:Originally Posted by cerneabbas

cerneabbas, it's also worth getting on the mailing list for John Smedley's Outlet sales. There can be some good reductions available.post #13107 of 199066/22/13 at 7:52amQuote:Originally Posted by cerneabbas
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 ?.
I really only remember wearing striped ties. I had a black & white one I particularly liked. Can't say ever matched with handkerchiefs.
As for now, absolute no no for me would be "humorous" cartoon tiespost #13108 of 199066/22/13 at 7:56amQuote:
cerneabbas, matching belt colour to shoe colour is something of an obsession of mine ... but a recent one (relatively speaking)post #13109 of 199066/22/13 at 7:58am
