    Indeed the customer base will be mostly professionals and Ivy types. There is also this growing scene of younger people who are really into heritage/repro vintage and save their money for one item that is really nice and wear it exclusively.

    To be honest, the sta prest are being done more so for the skinheads and vintage enthusiasts. I'll probably be using a lot of hemp/rayon/linen/organic cotton.

    Important conceptual points

    1. clothes worn by mods and skinheads were worn by someone else first, that was their power, and sources were diffuse so the look was fairly striking when put together

    2. the individual wardrobe was very limited, which worked to establish/exaggerate the look

    Look nice them sta-prest, will have to save me pennies up.

    The grafters do look better in person without the stitching too.

    I prefer actual pictures instead of studio pictures like this because in general things always look a bit different in real life to how they do on the computer, the yellow laces do not exactly flatter them either.

    I think i may of finally broke mine in, after walking 10 mile in them about a week ago, the dubbin did help a bit.
