Canada gets the blame, but Americans also have their underwear on display as part of some of their military uniforms.

How about just wearing the polo neck open and not drawing unwanted comments, or simply not worrying about how low the cut the fully buttoned shirt is?

Was thinking the same.
Also didn’t know lacoste still made anything in France as everything I’ve seen and owned from them in ages has been offshored.
'That's the Wonder of Vintage'.
By coincidence I was thinking about clothes being made in country of origin yesterday,I came across some pictures of Lois cord and denim items being sold by Atom Retro and Stuarts.
Some nice clothes but possibly a bit young for most of us on here.
I remember a discussion about Lois on here some years ago and I thought that someone said that Lois was just a zombie brand,however the clothes online now state Made in Spain.
Some different type jackets and cuts of jeans/cords now,I quite like the Dark Sand needle cord trucker but not sure that its age appropriate.

I reckon my Lacoste, although in excellent condition, is quite old. The rather small collar that I referred to would seem to confirm that.

We often discuss here our desire for ‘authenticity’ and seeing the Made in France label was what persuaded me.
One of the first lacoste items I ever owned was a white long sleeve polo Made in France, bought in 2002. Since then just about every lacoste item I have - loads of polos mostly - were all made elsewhere.

@Jimmy Balantyne many of those purchases would have stood you well in the Friday Challenge - Show us the Cut of Your Jib. But I do appreciate that you don't like to show off...

Anyway, go Vote!

Well, another Challenge put to bed and another victory for the good Inspector! Many congratulations and thank you for my votes guys.

I bought my first Lacoste, a white short sleeve, in 1980 and wore them throughout the 80s and early 90s and recall they were all French-made.

This is the first I have bought since around 1995 when I probably drifted off towards other brands.

Congratulations to Clouseau.

Notable mentions outside ‘the look goes on’ people :-

David Lane has an excellent gun club check jacket, the rest of his stuff did not step up to the mark.

Betelgeuse also had very nice kit.

As regards Harringtons, they are not Mr. K’s forte. He looks better in tailored casual stuff with a bit more gravitas. No cravats though.

I also hope this does not turn into a clique voting pattern.

I thought Purple Label was definitely worth a vote but surprisingly - to me anyway - he got null points.

Well, what can I say? There I was thinking that second place in that esteemed company was a tolerably good outcome and you bring me back down to earth with a bump!

So, what do you advise? Should I sit out the next one?
