I got the Retro Seventy2 tonic sta prest. They actually have a decent rise. Looking forward to getting the stone and tartan ones.
Nik would you be willing to share some pictures? And do you recommend buying your actual waist measurement or sizing up? Thanks in advance!

Your friend and humble narrator wearing 'stone' and 'navy' Retroseventys from further back down the thread :
View attachment 1793587

I have a short 27" inside leg, so will definitely look different on those with 'normal' proportions.
Hey, those are those Bally loafers too! With no amount of Cleveland I'd say. I've got the exact same inseam, so It's a normal proportion to me. Sharp then an sharp now 🕴

There are a few shops which sell them but no store of their own. They had one in the Carnaby St area but closed it after a couple of years - going by the online reviews I'm not surprised.

Coincidentally, I'm watching on TV the Who concert they did for their 50th anniversary. Pete T is wearing a blue Baracuta.

Yes that was in Newburgh Street IIRC. Been there once, a nice little shop, cool to see so many G9s in a vast array of colors. The following year the shop had disappeared.
I suppose they mainly sell through their online shop now. Not been to London since the first lockdown, but I suppose it isn’t very difficult to find a Baracuta.

I hate buying clothes online unless I've already the quality and tried the fit. Am not into all that buying then sending back. Find it a hassle.

I did try on a G9 sz36 in TK Maxx selling for £80 In Taupe colour but was too tight.
