A Few Deadstock Shirts Just Arrived: Brooks Unlined Collar, Southwick Popover, Lion of Troy Raglan Popover

A few shirt arrivals in the last few days (like I needed any more shirts, but you know how it is!): A vintage Lion of Troy popover raglan sleeve number, identical in every way to one that guest poster The Woolster found last year. Unfortunately, this one is too big for me even if I… Continue reading A Few Deadstock Shirts Just Arrived: Brooks Unlined Collar, Southwick Popover, Lion of Troy Raglan Popover

J Keydge, Slack Jackets – Get them whilst you still can.

Over the years one of the things I’ve found it hardest to source have been ivy sports jackets, especially jackets that can be worn in a non-ironic sense for everyday work amongst the great unwashed of non-converts. I’ve had dozens of sports jackets going back to around 1981, but almost without exception the sizing has… Continue reading J Keydge, Slack Jackets – Get them whilst you still can.

Here the ‘shine’ is simply daylight… Continue reading Church’s Chapel Plain Toe Blucher

1960’s Bayard Popover

I also picked up this 1960s Bayard Popover. Definitely something of a boom years ivy extremism going on at the moment. Not to mention the fact that it’s actually snowing here in London. It has an interesting pointed ‘chevron’ hem. It was so cheap even with shipping that I couldn’t pass it up. Got to… Continue reading 1960’s Bayard Popover

Vintage Bass Weejuns Tie Shoes

I’ve had a few enquiries recently from readers searching for tie up Bass Weejuns – a rare beast indeed and a different shoe entirely to the also rare Sportocasin (whose roots come directly from 1930s golf shoes). Sometime ago I posted a pair of already well worn 2 eyelet lace up Weejuns that I found… Continue reading Vintage Bass Weejuns Tie Shoes
