As you guys know, I don't normally venture far north of Potters Bar but when browniecj drew this to my attention I decided to give it a try:

Just got my tickets and wondered if anyone else had seen it.

Maybe a bit too long. Made by Daniel Hechter.

Looks like a long sleeve shirt that's been altered to me,I bought a striped button down  that I intend to have made into a short sleeve,if it works that maybe the way to go for me as I don't like the modern short sleeve length....BTW,i think that there are 6 times as many takeaways locally as there were in 1970,add microwave ready meals to that and its not a pretty picture.

New at John Simons.

I am looking for a new Harrington,that one is nice but I am after one a bit darker,i saw a Ben Sherman Harrington in Debenhams,i thought it looked ok and its quite heavy cotton,£75,it comes in navy and black as well and you can find them online for £40ish,not the tan one though.

I notice that John Simons is having a sale again,£40 reduction to the Allen Edmonds and Florsheim longwings..none in my size again though.

His current Florsheim shoes I assume are made in India - my two pairs are.

 

Paul Smith is doing a chunky looking (made in Italy) longwing this season - see Mr Porter website.

Them burnished tan/brown PS brogues are a thing of beauty. That Beams Plus suede Type III jacket is very nice, too!
I know it's been gone over with the suede Levi's jackets, but did the originals wear the ones with the contrasting black leather collars or with matching suede collars?

I agree with Botolph,the Paul Smith brogues look good.

I expect that the Florsheim longwings are made in India ( certainly not in the USA anyway) I think that Grensons are made in India now too.

I have ordered a pair of Herring Hawkshead brogue boots,they are made by Loake from pebbled leather with a dainite sole,just the job in this wet weather.

TK Maxx of all places have a little stock of the following Brogues by Nigel Hall, ltd edition as far as I can remember. Not Skinhead per say, but very well made and a nice shoe. I think they were retailing at a couple of hundred. £40 in TK Maxx.

 

The leather is of a real high quality, and much more of a "conker" colour than the pictures, quite rich. Laces would have to go though!!!!

Look alrite for 40 quid. Agreed re : laces !! nice spot mind...I love AE's, florsheim etc and the brogues discussed on here but some of you lot are mad...never paid over £120 for a pair of shoes or boots in my life, Picked up deadstock ones in box for 30 quid. All about looking around..

Re : harringtons, if you dont want a old second hand original one the best route to go is ben nevis, The ben Sherman ones are severely overpriced and everyone will have one.

 

And I like John simons dont get me wrong, but £149 quid for what is basically a standard stone or navy harrington is having a laugh as well. You can pick countless ones up for £30 quid a pop vintage etc. If I were to make a new one, at least do something a bit different, A leather or POW checked one, one in tweed, or cashmere heavy wool etc aimed at the posher market, then you could charge £150 and it would be justified. Sorry I dont get it, I think there just taking the piss with anyone daft enough to buy one.

Theres a factory outlet in the town where I live, and they stock a lot of baracuta jackets (along with shirts etc...) picked up a few in the last few years, for coppers. Sold most now, apart from a tweed one and a woollen one. Not skinhead by any means, but as I don't class myself as that any more, they are a smart jacket.

 

Every bugger seems to be wearing burgundy or navy harringtons in the town now, from students to pensioners. All warrior ones by the looks of it, but that's because a "retro & vintage" shop opened and was selling them.

I have to agree that some clothes and shoes are over priced,unfortunately they are usually the ones that I like the look of.

I haven't been lucky with finding deadstock brogues in my size,but I live in hope.

As for the harringtons,yes if I was dressing as a skinhead I would go for Ben Nevis,however I am looking for a Harrington that doesn't have the tartan lining right up to the zip,is tan or brown in colour and is preferably cotton and doesent have a logo....the Ben Sherman one in Debenhams now fits the bill ( a small logo that my friend Stanley will deal with ),ok its £30 over priced but I am prepared to swallow that to get what I want.

Lets face it we are all a bit particular about our clothes or we wouldn't be on here talking to blokes that we don't know about clothes and shoes,you have mentioned before about getting shirts made so that you get the look that you want....although we probably have different reasons for being obsessive about our clothes / shoes we probably all get the same buzz wearing the clothes and shoes that we have sought out / saved up for,other wise we would join the tracksuit / onesie wearing general public.

I wondered that too,the answer is probably that they can get them made a bit cheaper in Italy,and then sell them a bit dearer because they are Italian made ?.
