I'd go along with that Brownie. It's neat, clean, smart window dressing.

 

Saying that, it was the Ben sherman store, and whovever put that together must of had 'skinhead' in mind, or 'skinhead' was part of their brief.

Does anyone own a pair of tassel loafers from Delicious Junction? What's been your experience with them? Are their sizes pretty standard or do you find yourself sizing up or down when buying a pair of loafers in general? They can be ordered from Adaptor Clothing and available in UK sizes which is 1 size down from US sizes.

Their sizes are pretty standard in my 'one' experience of them. I bought a pair of oxblood brogue boots from them.

 

I had to sell them on immediately! they were a terrible 'high shine' patent type leather. You can't polish them and they are very plastic looking.

Shudder.....I try not to think about them anymore. Time hasn't healed my experience with them.

 

(I'd avoid mate, they look ok'ish in photo's but they are crap for the fairly high price they demand. Try  Loake 'Brighton' loafers? or the DM ones? very affordable, but they are a little 'chunky' looking)

 

These are the Loake Brighton loafers. I bought some second hand 3 years ago. Still going strong.

I know Prof Beattie, he lives here in Didsbury - I'm a friend of his daughter and son-in-law. satisfied.gif

Soundspressure, thanks for that bit of info. I must say those Loake Brighton Loafers look pretty good. Which is what drew me to the Delicious Junctions which has a similar look. I just can't find loafers of similar design at most stores here in the states. But the Loakes are a bit pricier at £145.00 here www.loake.co.uk/brighton.html compared to £74.99 for the DJ loafers at theAdaptor clothing website, factoring in the dollar exchange rate of course.


Btw here's a review on this very same subject http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoYfCHtVLCw

If I'm honest(!!!) last time I saw him was at his daughter's engagement/birthday 'do', a couple of years' ago.

He's a very, very smooth guy... nod[1].gif

That London store display shot is ben Sherman, arguably they have the right. But I really don't like this pseudo skinhead trend that's all the rage. I wonder how much of it is from fashion designers visiting this thread?

My main gripe is because because the main people wearing it are latte sipping fashionista metrosexuals who have no clue what a skin is. And would be disturbed by the connection. And no crops, usually I see it with bizarre hitler youth haircuts.
Look at Brutus' look book to see what I mean.

I'm all for revivals of subcultures, but not when it gets muddled and has all the teeth pulled out of it.

Even saw a Harry (with a damned hood!) on the street being worn by some young rich slob in ladies jeans, sloppy turnups, and shapless 700 dollar boots. Was tempted to jokingly stick out my brown skinned hand into a sieg heil and say "oi skinhead!" to see his reaction, but I was with family.

And then there's this:

And talking about erasing history... Anyone notice the huge cultural omission from the opening ceremony? No skins or rudies, or reggae. Plenty of Austin powers though.

Actually at the opening ceremony of the Olympics they briefly played "A Message To you Rudy" for maybe about two seconds. Just the opening line "Stop your messing around.."
