The High Numbers Live 1964
My favourite old scarf. Made by Joxtons. Lost at Christmas because of drunkenness. Mislaid somewhere between the pub in Ladbroke Grove, and the bench I woke up on in Neasden Parade. (Neasden wasn't on my way home, and I have no idea how I got there. Still had my hat on though.)
Those damn mischievous Whisky Fairies !
Inks,Bad luck with the scarf,I bet you wont be doing that again ( until the next time),your hat was still there what about your wallet ?
I had a similar drink related loss a long time ago,a light green Harrington ( like the green Alpha jackets ) it was the best Harrington that I ever had,couldnt find a replacement and I don't think I have seen one the same colour since,been more careful after that.
Those pullover / popover shirts,I should imagine getting a slim fit one off is like a snake shedding its skin,probably not the most practical fit/style combination.
Cleav..That looks tidy to me,I only have one paisley silk scarf ( with a wool back),too warm in all but the coldest outdoor conditions,an all silk one has long been on my list but you ( and elwood,Inks and Mr Knightley) have inspired me to make it more of a priority now.
I have also wanted to go to the Northampton shoe factories,but its a pain of a trip from here.
Interesting that you mention the history/heritage side of John Smedley and Crockett and Jones,we have talked about it a lot on this thread ( not just British firms) and how some have sadly disappeared,others are not such good quality now but perhaps there are some that still make good quality items even now.
BTW,do you ever wear brogue boots ?,quite a few good British shoe makers selling them over the last few years.
Mr Knightley.Yes I have seen some of the cr@p that Next is offering at the moment,its not going to be a nice summer dress wise.
Seen this Many Times.At 3:04 there is a Blonde Guy.Crew Neck sweater with what appears to be a.............. Polo Shirt with Twin Piping at Collar.Looks like a Fred Perry but could be someone else I guess.
