"Your favorite oxford shirt" is still running for almost a week. It would be great to have more contestants from our little "group".
This Friday Challenge is pretty popular with 15 entries so far, but (shhhh just between you and me) i don't think we have the winner yet, it really stays open… Every type of collar, pattern, and color, allowed as long as it's Oxford cloth.

With the recent chat about TK Maxx I was looking back through my own bits and pieces from that emporium. I can't really think of another shop, apart perhaps from John Simons (and I have been going to him since 1969), that has so consistently come up with the goods. A small selection:

Ties from Salvatore Piccolo of Naples, Paul Costelloe and Balmain. Belt from Romeo Gigli. Knitwear from Nigel Hall and Pringle and shirts from PoloRL.

And, of course, the G9:

A very nice collection there Mr K, and although I had said that I was going to kerb my buys, I couldn't resist the following.

G9 from TK Maxx Leeds £49.99 to replace my old darker shade of sand.

Gant Rugger cotton BD £19.99 from Gant outlet York.

Fifty quid for a genuine G-9 is ridiculous like. I don’t get to a TJMaxx very often over here but there’s an affiliated Marshall’s near me at which I once got a RLP linen shirt and ... well that’s about it!

It's time for a new TLGO survey.

This is the most important referendum since the Brexit.

Desert Boots or Monkey Boots ?

I am the happy owner of both, but i will vote for Desert Boots.

I hope we will have a majority and will avoid the no deal.
Votes opened until October 31, of course.

Non non monsieur we must kick out those pesky brits cleanly so they stop getting in the way of our domination of Brussels and plundering of the centennial enemy's coffers. "Qu'un sang impur..."

Desert boots for me. I have monkey boots but the “blocky communist blok chic” of them is another reason I dig the dessies more. Slicker, but sort of fit the same most-weather purpose as the clunky monkeys.

Kind of miss Brutalism...


The Barbican is my favourite (20th century onwards) building in London. Newer additions just don't have the same courage. At most adding some curves to the international style. And 50 year old raw concrete has a unique "patina" :p

The dialectical/analytical struggle must continue! You must think only of increased Patriotic Monkey Boot production!

Brutalist architecture is awesome, there needs to be a revival(serious).

Raw concrete is rarer these days but there are some instances that are clearly "inspired"... this life sized lego pile for example:
