My guess is that they're Tods..
LOL - yeah, my thoughts too, but if someone here does know the history of each I'd love to hear it. Alternatively, I could go and read about both styles on Wikipedia
Looking to buy a blazer but any decent shops in Oz?
Or should I look to go to Uniqlo?
Which model from herring shoes?
When everyone starts doing it, I will
well in short, it's overpriced poseur cafe wear.
Seriously there's so much better stuff out there for people that are serious about cycling.
Despite what you might read on tumblr, wool jerseys aren't used by the pros anymore for good reason. For a 30km cafe ride, they are perfect. Not so much for a 120km hill session. But if your paying $150 for a set of gloves to look good at the local bunch ride cafe of choice you've got more money than sense.
the herring shoes are weybridges on sale.
the PRL safari jackets were 70% off at their outlet, which was in my budget. No way i am paying full price for their level of construction ($499).
gotta get that apple job.
Maybe that's what PG is going for
Ah well... At least Ms X is pretty easy on the eyes.
Interestingly, Vox posted a pic of a very dapper and young Steve Jobs in a sport jacket and bow-tie on his tumblr a week or so ago. Don't know if it's still there.
P.S. Just ordered the silver and navy glen check!
Yeah these are Tod's ... The shop was next to my departure gate at rome airport and had a few minutes to spare ... Plus they were on sale!
The cloth is from one Deer Style's "house" books. It's a light, summery cloth that wears well.
Sorry if there was any confusion, I wasn't specifically referring to PG personally there. Everyone's ridden with a rapha poseur at one time or another. They're not just contained to darlinghurst cafes I'm afraid!
I am still not sure what the fuss this Mr Guido is about. All got was a guy who gets very annoyed very quickly wen you ask about PJ prices.
I like that PG does his thing. Lot of respect for him tbh.
