From this side of the Atlantic there has always seemed to be an allure to the London Fog brand – a classic name in American clothing. For many years I thought the company was based San Francisco – not sure exactly why. In fact they were (and still are) based in Baltimore, MD. In the… Continue reading What’s The Weejun Buying on Ebay: London Fog Maincoat
Paul Newman Walking on the Beach in 1957 It’s a wet weekend in Weejunland, winter not yet shrugged off. A simple post today. Just an iconic image, a new series for those days when a picture tells a thousand…
The Weejun has been on a bit of a shoe spree recently on Ebay, but searching through tons of listings last weekend I found this little gem. It languished at $9.99 until yesterday when it ended whilst I asleep. I think I had competition from someone in Korea so I had a feeling it might… Continue reading What’s The Weejun Buying on Ebay?

Both of these shirts had some serious yellowing from age and having been in an attic for nigh on 40 years they had that distinctive sour sooty smell. I decided to open one up… Continue reading Vintage Old Stock Shirts: The Hathaway
Two dudes for the price of one here. I remember clearly lusting after a seersucker suit when I first saw the movie W.U.S.A on TV in about 1982. I can’t remember it ever having been on UK TV since then. Of course the movie was a Newman vehicle but Perkins was excellent in it too.… Continue reading The Look That Inspired: Paul Newman & Tony Perkins

With beefroll loafer there are more styles and many different makers who get their own look, but, to my mind at least, nobody ever gets that deep vamp look that Bass has, creating a highwalled… Continue reading What’s The Weejun Buying On Ebay?

Weejun Wearer of the Week Well, no specific Weejun wearing in this week’s choice (maybe the girl’s foot down on the bottom right) but you can sense the presence, can’t you?
