I got a Land’s End catalogue through the door recently that had some nice SS BD hot weather options, between poplin, madras, Seersucker and linen. I’m all full in that department but may be worth a look to some. Don’t know if they’ll satisfy the collar fetishists!

I have two of the LE seersucker shirts - a classic blue stripe and a green stripe. The collars are fine. They even have the button at the back.

Looking good @Thin White Duke

Very smooth outfit Mr. K and I do one similar myself. My navy blazer is a hopsack wool Suitsupply with patch pockets.
I often disparage Weejuns and think a lot of lads continue to patronize them purely for their heritage, not their current offshored plasticky quality, but I really like the version you have here. I wonder if they’re still available in horween or if they’ve gone almost totally with corrected grain these days?

I agree with you about the current quality of Weejuns. The last time I visited the Carnaby Street branch of GH Bass they did have some nice pebble grain leathers, but most were plasticky-looking. I was wearing the Horween ones at the time (which I had just got from Mr Porter) and the guy in the shop did not feel these would be widely available. Mr P claimed they were made specially for them.

A lot of security guards on this thread ! :-D

@Mr Knightley after a first wash the EG polo shrank a little and is a much better fit. I went back to Uniqlo and bought the Ivory/white one (already got the Olive and Black). Also tried a 'color block' one ((kind of patchwork), but too outré for me, and definitely not age appropriate.

Thanks for the update, Monsieur.

I am in London tomorrow - will see if I can find time to drop into a store. They are few and far between even in London now...

I found a new Uniqlo outlet in the Spitalfields area of London, on the fringes of the City. It is ideally located for me, being only a few minutes' walk from Liverpool Street station.

They seemed to have all the examples of the Uniqlo EG collaboration. In the end, I was not sure about the open neck of the model @Clouseau bought and went with this one in olive 'dry pique' - closer in cut and style to the polos I would normally wear. I bought a medium, which is cut far more generously than my only other Qlo polo, but not too baggy:

I think it is the colorblock model Mr K. Quite nice and a slimmer fit, but i am not a big fan of the 'Dry' material.
Yes, it is the colorblock model, which in olive is rather more subtle than some other offerings. As I think has been said before, the dry pique does contain some man-made fibre. We'll see how it performs in the warm weather - although nothing above mid-60s F. in the forecast!

They are not available anymore (except on eBay maybe if you're lucky), but the Sebago Classics in Horween leather are still available, @cerneabbas mentioned he bought them recently. Not many differences apart that the Sebago show less socks. The toe is maybe a little more rounded than on the Weejuns.

By living the lifestyle, I mean, experiencing everything that goes with the look. Seeing people who try to push the look but keeping it sensible, going up and down the country to allnighters, weekenders ( staying up all weekend) DJing, dancing, etc etc. Some of the geezers I have met over the years could piss on most of the people who post on some of the style forum threads, they didn't even have to try.
You seem to live an online life, where on another website you seem to have different views to posters, e.g. A Spanish guy who dresses like a grandad and always wears a bad flat cap.
Yorky... My man!
