Don't know the make

 

 

Could they be original Royals?

Maybe Alden? But on some places the stitching looks a little different.

I've ran into this guys website before researching shoes and he charges ridiculous prices I don't see how he ever sells anything.

Nice - if expensive.

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. biggrin.gif

With inflation that should only cost £ 18 today especially since they are dealing in slave labor nowadays something is terribly wrong.

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 again shog[1].gif

I don't think you're alone in that dream, cerneabbas ... like your comment about possible benefit of the G8 dress down too biggrin.gif

The shape looks like Allen Edmonds or Loake. Looks like maybe cordovan?

Agree with your definition of the tank top.Try Paul Smith for Fairisles.For John Smedley, if you find yourself in the Derbyshire Dales why not visit their factory at Lea Bridge and buy a piece or two at a very reasonable price. Their Sea Island cotton V necks are wonderful all year round.http://www.visitderbyshire.co.uk/details-1527.ihtml - BTW this post should have four paras, but it will come out as one jumbled mess. It does have to do with the device as yesterday my home PC managed to produce the correct look.

cerneabbas, it's also worth getting on the mailing list for John Smedley's Outlet sales. There can be some good reductions available.

( 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 ties uhoh.gif

cerneabbas, matching belt colour to shoe colour is something of an obsession of mine ... but a recent one (relatively speaking)
