I have a Grenfell coat. It's nice. No experience with Gloverall. I have a PWVC Twin Track in waxed cotton from some years back and it's a very nice coat. My one complaint is that the sleeves are pretty slim which makes it a bid hard to get over knitwear. From what I see in pictures, other outerwear from them may have this problem too, which is annoying if you are wearing knitwear or tailoring. That being said, my Twin Track is very nice and I wear it regularly. If you like the look of their stuff, they make a good product. I also think it is funny that they have a section on their site for "legwear".It would appear Grenfell and Gloverall are producing great product. I find Private White VC a bit pretentious and maybe too expensive.
Yeah, when people don't dress up for the theatre I'm like: Jesus guys...When I go to the theatre, it's like theater but spelt differently, I wear a decent dress shirt and trousers with the occasional sweater or slipover. Most guys are now in shorts and sweatpants/joggers. Where is the pride? It wasn't long ago it black tie was de rigueur...
It's not bad because black people are in it, it's bad because black people weren't in the history upon which it is based.He's trying very hard not to say what all the soi-disant critics of Bridgerton think, which is that it is bad because there are black people in it, almost as if they don't actually understand what the word 'fantasy' means.
I’m not at all familiar with Bridgerton, but that isn’t a particularly apt comparison. Black people have played a role in British society for centuries, though history books written by people who look as pale as me rarely focused on them. I’m told that the show features an unrealistically racially integrated society, but in reality it’s probably not all that much less fanciful than the universally lily white casts of most British period pieces.Do you think it was wise when John Wayne was cast to be Genghis Khan?
I also have zero interest in either side of the discussion, but this bit is somewhat ironic given that the equivalent historical impact of the average black (or white) person in England was of comparable scale.Casting John Wayne as Chinggis Khan, on the other hand, was just a flat out silly move, because the number of white people in Mongolia at that time could be counted on the fingers of the hand of someone who played with fireworks.
