    What do you wear that you didn't buy the first time around? Here are some picks of what I just took from my dad's closet. His fraternity t: [​IMG] [​IMG] It could be fun to patch up later, but I kinda don't want to ruin it's unaffected state.

    That's a sweet shirt - it does run into the "regimental tie" problem: Sig Phi Epsilon members might have a problem with you wearing it. How's your dad feel about you wearing it?

    Duffer St. George did some frat-inspired shirts a few years back, but I think it would be considered more of a novelty in England. You don't see a lot of dudes sporting letters over there. Here you run the risk of looking like just another American Jackass.

    People on SF seem to have incredible vintage finds. Personally, I have a few secondhand ties that I like, a couple of 80s polo shirts (le tigre, la coste, brooks bros), a badass Testament tshirt, and a few blazers. Also a member's only jacket that I cannot pull off.

    The problem with Duffer St. George is that you will look like a Jackass wherever you are..... just my opinion though.

    Duffer has some cool, understated outerwear. They do make a lot of crap though (in the same way that Fake Genius, Two Flowers, and Junya Watanabe do.)

    I know lots of Sig Eps, and they would have a huge problem with you wearing that (assuming you're not a member).

    a good 50% of my wardrobe is vintage (for me *vintage* only applies between late 40s-early 60s, anything after that is anathema) mostly 50s stuff, with a good handful of early 60s...sold off the few 40s pieces i had (cable knits, hollywood jackets etc) my latest score on ebay (which cost a good $$$ [​IMG] ) is a shortsleeve pink 50s silk rayon gabardine shirt with UFOs all over it...this is actually something i have been searching for that i *finally* found in my size [​IMG] i have a few vintage 60s mod cut suits, 50s gabardine jackets and tons of 50s gabardine shirts and 60s acrylic/orlon knits for my body frame, the vintage stuff fits perfectly like it was tailor made. the shirts are slimfitting and there is a ton of good gear for a size Med 40" chest. plus the fabrics were awesome back then, vintage gabardines drape in a way that very few modern fabrics do without paying top dollar.

    You do realize the man's father is a Sig Ep, right? I doubt he wants to insult the group.

    More alphabets in the UK than letters, usually "chav" inspired FCUK hoodies and T-shirts. Then there's your ubiquitous football (that's soccer to you) shirt.

    I absolutely agree. Send it to me. I don't mind pissing off some Sig Eps around my campus.
