To be fair he was traditionally known for wearing a classic navy blue suit or a pinstriped suit.

Sorry I cannot bring it over,but anybody interested in all Leather Brogues(Black) go to the Mod Clothing and see some for £49.00(I kid you not).Look pretty tidy to me-old British Brogue Style,only in a few sizes only.

I am not on commission ......smile.gif

I bought xxl and was pleasantly surprised that they were a generous cut.  No rear pleat but I was not looking to replicate a Ben Sherman - these are ok and for £13 they are good value.

'' The American 'Ivy League' style of dress fascinates..............  It was the style of dress which kick started Skinhead in London.''

 

Hmmm - I've got some reservations about this statement......

roytonboy.A lot has been said on this thread about the Ivy league influence on style here in Britain,astronauts and Motown artists have been mentioned too along with films and tv programmes so there was an influence from America at the time.

Vietnam was on the news all the time and it wasn't just the military that were on tv,White house spokesmen in suits and BDs,and it wasn't just the Astronauts in the space programme footage but the blokes in Mission control,my point is we were seeing a lot of Americans on tv and films and I definitely think that did have some influence .

The Tab-collar shirts look very nice. The 3-ply mohair suit with waistcoat in antique-gold looks lovely. There site does say their suits fit those that are slim or toned. It doesn't say anything about well-built (but not fat) short-arses, like myself.

As seeing as their shop is in the Grove area of W.London, I'll pop in there during the next month or so and see what the quality and sizing is like.

I'm in the Ladbroke Grove area quite often and haven't noticed the shop. Then again, it's mostly in the after-hours, and I'm more often than not 'slow-blink' drunk.

Firstly, I think he was using that statement to startle his readers and to reinforce his point about Ivy League clothing items having different significances in different places at different times.

Secondly, the vast majority of us didn't even know our clothes were Ivy-League-influenced. They were just items of fashion.

The guys in the famous Piccadilly Circus photo - let's be fair - were in the minimal skinhead gear. But hey! aren't those American-style button-down Oxford shirts? biggrin.gif I'll bet the guy's point would seem to have more relevance if you could see the same blokes dressed up for an evening out.
