Mr Knightley. That's an interesting thread IMO.

I liked the comparison between the (£200) Loakes and a smilar looking pair of Alfred Sargent ( £400) shoes,food for thought.

I still think that Loake offer a vast range to suit different people price wise,I think that they offer value for money.

I looked at the Loake Taunton but I didn't like the 2 different colours,theres already a contrast with the different leather finishes,it looks a bit of a "novelty" shoe IMO.

Have a look at the Herring Grassmere ( made by Cheaney) not much more expensive £265,nice shape,a grain leather longwing,I like the colour,I would prefer non metal eyelets,Dainite sole so not for everyone.

The next time you see me I'll be wearing a cheap pair of Boots polaroids.

I recall an incident when I was doing Yell at the IT offices. I barged in to the offices one day and made my way upstairs to where I usually borrowed a desk. There were a lot of people around I didn't recognise, but that didn't strike me as too odd; it was a little strange that I didn't see any of the usual IT staff, however. I didn't realise that a crowd of people - political activists of some kind - had occupied the building, and the IT staff had been kept out. Anyhow, just as I got up to the office I normally used I heard the noise of about half a dozen people charging up the stairs after me. Apparently the word had got round that some skinhead or other (me!) had pushed his way in and was obviously looking for trouble. By the time they caught up with me, I had actually spotted a young woman I knew from somewhere, and we were smiling and chatting. It was that that stopped me being jumped on and chucked out. She happened to be one of the occupiers, and she told me why they were there, but I'm blowed if I can remember now. It was just one of those weird, late-1960s things that happened. Anyhow, I was the only person connected with IT who was 'allowed' in the building that day.

Is it the same outer shell ? does anyone know what the differences are ? ( besides 230 quid).

Also are Baracuta true to size or should you go up a size ?.

For some years before Baracuta was taken by WP Lavori, they used to do two versions: The Classic fit, and the Slim fit. The Classic fit is true to size (some even find it "baggy"), with the Slim fit, you can go up one size, but it depends of your "shape". I'm rather slim, so i bought a Slim fit and went for my usual size. 

Anyway at 39,99 it's a bargain, and i think you said you don't really like Tartan lining. 

Apparently this model is a "pre-Lavori", as the outer is 100% cotton.

One day, along with two of my mates, I decided to go up to Soho and visit a strip club. We found one and decided to go inside. We paid at the door, and went down a passage where we were told that the payment at the door was for 'membership' and we would be required to pay again for 'entrance'. We grumbled about this, and the guy wrote down the name of another strip club where (he said) they would just let us in if we said we were members at his club and he had sent us. So off we trotted to this other club where they let us in; but down the passage they pulled the same stunt of asking us for more money. We complained, and the bloke told us to wait there. For a minute or two we thought he had gone to get some bouncers to chuck us out for being smart alecs, but he came back and said "Okay, you can come in."

Well, we came in and watched a bit of the show, all the time wondering whether at any moment some heavies were going to appear and give us a slapping. That didn't happen. The show was a bit boring; the artistes just did a couple of static 'tableaux' each, topless, but dropping whatever she was holding in front of her bush for the last ten seconds. Each one was introduced by a bloke over the pa with "Presenting the lovely... Linda" or "Presenting the lovely... Gloria".

As a night out, it was about as exciting as eating bread-and-Stork, but it was an experience.

Clouseau.Thanks for the information,I don't like the tartan linings and as the outer is the same as the G9 and in cotton it seems a great price for a made in England Baracuta.

M-o-M..I usually sit on any sunglasses that  l like,last pair I squashed in the car boot lid.

Last year a bloke in the café was selling "Ray Bans" my work mate bought a pair,he says that you couldn't tell them from the real thing,even had the same case (probably cheaper than Boots ones),I expect that they were made in the same factory as genuine Ray Bans too.

On our Saturday "meet up" with some of the Willesden ,we would go and bait the Doormen( at the Strip Clubs).One lot did come out but as we turned into another Street,they changed their minds.Just as as there were more of us waiting with anything we could lay our hands on.smile.gif

M-o-M,they still do the same tricks today.Saw a Programme about the Old Bill in Soho-and they were trying to help foreign tourists,get their money back.In the 60s you hardly saw Coppers as a lot of them were receiving "back-handers".

Noticed some talk and a few pics of the Modern Jazz Quartet.Was at the Albuquerque NM Museum and saw a Plaque dedicated to John Lewis who came from here.Made me VERY happy to see this city celebrate one of it's favorite sons.The African American community here is still very small and not well celebrated.
