post #226 of 294
I scored a navy Bretton jumper, blue gingham shirt and lavat staprest trousers.

Here are the trousers. I wear a 30 or 31 in jeans and am a real 31" waist. I went with the 34 again and it is perfect in the waist. I will get the hips let out about half an inch. I was also thinking about having the hems cuffed instead of taken up - what do you think?

Hi
I have been brousing this thread for a while and finally decided to head there myself-i live in south London so i'm very close.I have walked past this shop many times before looked in the window but for some strange reason never been in
Anyway the guys in there are great,very passionate about the mod style from the early to mid 60's,shop was very busy with a mixture of young mods ex mods or just folk who like to buy nice clean cut clothes from that era(like myself) Purchased the ox-blood monkey boots which i believe for a british made boot is exellent value for £70.00,as someone has mentioned they are stiff and will take time to break in
Went back the next day to purchase the brown loake desert boot but they sold out in my colour. They are going to call me beginning of next week to let me know when they will be back in stock and send them on post free
Also tried a couple of suits on- the blue pin stripe and prince of wales check which i fell in love with!,they use a tailor around the corner who is supposed to be very good if you require any alterations if you don't use your own
i will be back in the spring to purchase one...... or two
Sorry for the ramble but i can really highly recommend these guys,i'm already kicking myself for not trying on a shirt or two!

JustinW: I like the way the trousers fit. I took your advice (and GetSmart's) and ordered the sta-prest in 34, and hope they fit as slim as your's do in the picture. What chelseas are you wearing? I'm in the market for a decent pair, but don't really know where to begin.

Sort of raising this thread from the dead, but I had a question about JTG harringtons. I've heard that the collars are quite flimsy and cannot really be popped up. Does anyone have a similar experience with this?

Also, how are they in terms of fit compared to Mercs and Warriors?

I m thinking about the overcoat from JTG is it a slim fit or a regular fit? i can only find pics from this thread but not much info thx!

I wouldn't call it flimsy, but it is not stuff enough to pop without the front part drooping a little. You could always try a little spray starch on the reverse if it is an issue for you. The fit is slim for a Harrington (which, by definition, are not really slim). My only complaint is that they are a little short for me - which only becomes an issue with low-rise jeans/pants.

I have the crombie overcoat from them, and in my view it fits pretty slim. however, i don't have much experience with these types of coats, so i'm not really sure how form-fitting other brands can be. since i wanted to have the option of wearing a suit jacket under it i went up a size (36-38), as was recommended by one of the guys there. there's definitely some room in the sleeves for a blazer, but i'd say it fits my torso pretty closely. it's a fucking deadly coat, so it gets my recommendation.

JustinW: i got my sta-prest a few weeks ago, both in a size 34, but the waist on one of them is much smaller than the other (which fits perfectly). i notice that your post at the beginning of this page has you considering "letting out the waist"--does this mean making the waist bigger? sorry for my being retarded in the field of tailoring.

That sucks! Sorry to hear it, man.

Mine fit great on the waist but I had the hips let out (ie made bigger) by about 3/4 of an inch. I also can the legs cuffed when they were taken up and am happy with the look - though I haven't warn them much yet.

Well, I'm only 5'3" so this is good news as far as I am concerned. Hopefully the xs will fit me spot-on. Thanks for the tip!

so i guess the waist suppression is spot on? as i dont thk i am wearing it with a suit
cheers! this is exactly what i want to know
pics will be great though:

I'm afraid I don't have a camera, so I'm unable to offer pics with it on. sorry. perhaps if you send them an e-mail they could provide a pic of someone wearing it? i would definitely say that it's a slim fitting overcoat, even considering i went up a size to accommodate a suit.

I have a couple of Jump the Gun Harringtons and am quite happy with them. I noticed something interesting the other day. The photos of the £19.99 Harrington at this site... http://www.jeanwise.co.uk/Cart/Catal...rringtons.aspx ...are the same as the £45 Harrington from Jump the Gun... http://www.jumpthegun.co.uk/shop/Product/Index/23 Are the jackets for sale the same? I have no idea but I thought I'd share in case someone wishes to pursue this.

slick, dude. i got one of those breton jumpers when i was living in france but can't really pull it off (i've put on too much weight since). i'm looking to pick up some of those long-sleeve house shirts, as i really don't have enough button-downs in my closet.
