Lasttye..I reckon that's true of a lot of people with fashion,they just move onto the next one.
con man was asking about the suits from Adam of London,i was looking at their website and I like the look of some of it,whats your opinion of there stuff ?,I think you said you have been there.
I drove up to Bicester outlet centre today ( I thought it was a bit disappointing ),but I saw those Churchs Graftons that flyfronted put up a picture of,now I thought they were a lot better in the pictue than in "real life"...there was some plains in there and some toe cap derbys that were sh1t hot IMO,real nice heavy ones.
Cernabbas I lived in Notting Hill for 24 years and never popped into Adams until a few years ago...what i saw for what you pay they are ok...To be honest a off the peg suit is often better put together than a bespoke suit...being 6ft and not a fat fcuk..off the peg always looks ok on me.
Back in the 60s you had to go bespoke..to get the skinhead style....once the skinhead craze picked up you could get off the peg...but the problem with off the peg they will use less material...for example The jacket would be shorter than a true skinhead suit and the trousers would be flat front rather than having a single pleat.
Of all the suits i have today I am only really happy with one and thats a nice Merino wool subtle POW,
Regarding the Church's Graffton I had a Pair they was like battleships..bloody bullitt proof...nice shoe though.
