    I have been planning a weekend in London ( shopping and maybe RAF museum ) this year and Adam is one of the shops I was interested to go to,some nice looking clobber on their website IMO.
    I want to go to Silvermans and Son of a stag and Discount shoes........if anyones got any other ideas I would appreciate them.

    I just looked on there ,and it says that they do a bespoke service by pre arranged appointment,so it might be worth giving them a call .

    Adams stuff is pretty reasonable, and the one thing i like about the whole set up is, it dosen't come across as being to gimmicky, if that makes sense, i've got one of there Crombie style coats, which i like, good quality and fit.
    There suits look good, but i'd prefer a single vent tbh, always thought they had more of a mod cut?
    Jump the gun, wouldn't bother with there suits, dont get me wrong, theres worse out there, but the trousers are very tapered, and the material is quite thin.

    Managed to pick up a tonic mac a while back, copper with a green flip, alas no fly front, so 5p short in terms of styling, but at £15 i can live with it

    Cheers Mike, I'm not adverse to single or double vents I don't mind either
    Have heard similar reviews of jump the gun.
    Not a massive fan of macs, so not sure about a tonic one, a cream colour and I think of the dirty old man brigade or Colombo and so if I had one, probably be in navy

    There's a shoe shop that might be worth a visit cerneabbas down in Fulham Broadway.I haven't been there in donkeys years but they used to carry some decent stuff.You can pop in the Wheatsheaf Pub nearby for a quick one.Some real old characters I know used this place.
    Son of Stag is the best and if Rudy cant find you something that fits you right,then I would be very surprised.Not cheap,but the best at what they do.They do free chain stitching also.

    Yeh, Imperial War Museum is always a great place to visit.

    Can I add another one, Camden Market, it seemed to be good for gear in 2001, when I last visited, don't know what it's like now though.

    That's a coincidence,i found a website this morning about pubs that had shut down in North London,there was loads,some big ones and some that had been there for years...sad really,but just another sign of how the country has changed...
