Yes,i have liked certain items over the years only to realise that they don't suit me,usually after I have gone to a lot of trouble sourcing them or paying a lot of money ( for me )and then wearing them a few times...that's why I am pleased with the brown Monkey boots I suppose and the Bexley longwings that I bought,better that something cheap looks good than something expensive doesn't...

I had never heard of Sid Mashburn - thanks for sharing.

Like many of the better retailers/designers,he's an ex Ralph Lauren guy.Pretty well known among the Ivy/Prep legions due to his obvious leanings

 

The Italian loafers are made by Peluso I believe.I have been pondering those myself.

My trusty 19 year old Sebagos I bought in NYC in 1994. I've been married in them twice (so far). The right one is a bit creased. I could try deer-boning it, but I'm sure that only works on Cordovan leather.

Nice collar roll on the Omega gents BDs

Id bet the whole collection in the Ivy was 1960's Ivy - brand spanking new in amazing pastel colours .. that window just looks like old blokes clobber ( i like most of it myself but then im a old bloke not a 16 year old looking in at brand new treasure )

Spent most of my life in Kingswood, mainly around Two Mile Hill. I'm originally born in Kendal, Cumbria, but my father decided to move family to Brstol in about1972.

So where was my summer holiday this year.... BRISTOL!!! ...via Hohhot, Beijing, Zhengzhou, Pindingshan, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong.....Lot's of planes and trains...same again next year.

That is what I mean.I look in "Gentlemens Outfitters" and see the same dressing.I may be an old bloke-not a 16 year old,but I still want to be inspired by what I see.It is still about looking for treasure,that is why there is a lot of discussion on here about various Shops,Designs etc.,etc.It does not mean you are 60, so you are now into "Pipes and Slippers". Certainly not me.smile.gif

I still get enjoyment from buying clothes and shoes,one of the reasons that I joined styleforum.

I agree with you about wanting something different to boring "old blokes" pipe and slippers  type image.

Any reason to add to my wardrobe is a good one,this weeks heavy rain has given me the opportunity to search for an umbrella like I used to carry,a brown or tan showerproof coat/jacket,and to speed up my purchase of a pair of brown brogues or brogue boots with a Dainite sole ( sorry about that mate ).

I've used Oi Polloi the last couple times I've been in Manchester. Great shop. Their online shop is dynamite, too and great customer service as well.
There's certainly a lot of modern "casual" gear in their but the amount "heritage" labels and styles make it worth a look.
