Thought these would fit into this thread well. Granted, they have a commando sole but they have that sort of “apron top” you originals seem to have gone for in the early days. Cordovan leather, made by Alden local to me. Sorta wide-fitting and ultra comfy outta the box 9C729B88-B6E3-4D32-A55A-826DA8388A2D.jpeg 0B72B549-8A73-469E-901D-1A7F997313C6.jpeg

Where did you find those Yorky??

Perfect Christmas jumpers ?
I'm trying to convince those around me that these are winter jumpers :) Things like this should be able to be worn into Feb or March without comments about Christmas being over.
Back in 81ish these would have been worn all year round. I had one which was one of the first things I chose to wear rather than parental imposition. I'd have continued wearing it even after the fashion faded, but I outgrew it.

I've had a few over the years, but have always been a lot chunkier, these are are lot slimmer and look good with a plain button down shirt underneath them.

Nice. Not a look I could pull off with my build and visage. I'd look like an apres ski henchman.

I don´t remember seeing this photo here. A double breasted military overcoat with ¿Sta-Prest? and boots. I really like the look and, honestly, I prefer wearing double breasted to crombie or even sheepskin (I have one from my grandpa in good condition...).

I usually wear like that guy, but then it was a bit odd, wasn´t it? Can anyone tell a little more about double breasted overcoats?

I did see them, but not in any huge quantities. tbh I think I saw two, maybe three blokes wearing them between 68 and 69, so I hope this doesn't become another "donkey jacket" issue! :-D
