    What I bought today...

    Just thought that I'd start this topic as nobody has [bothered?] to start it yet! I was in one of my local charity shops today and bought these women's basket-weave, tassel loafers for only $8.50 AUD! Absolutely brill, to say the least! ;-) Now I…

    Amazing B sides

    Over the past few years I have started to collect some fantastic vinyl 45s again. Some have been bought from car boot sales for next to nothing and others I have paid a few quid for, although to be honest I have not paid more than £12 yet. I already…

    "I can understand that Graham, I just hope you didn`t take their advice and "size up", listening to their claim that their suits are very slim fitting. I did and payed the price big style. I have a Jump the Gun suit which is genuinely "close fit", an…"

    "No Alan, it was off the peg, since I am pretty much stock size for UK slimfit styles. I'm sure the quality will be fine, and they do state that even ready-made suits are shipped in 14-18 days to be fair. I accepted that, but it's been a month now, a…"

    "Yes Graham, I`ve had a suit from them in the past, not bad quality either and yes my suit was semi bespoke and it took about 5 weeks, but they did tell me it would, so I wasn`t worried. I am assuming you ordered a semi bespoke from them?"

    "Did my first suit in 1982. Mr Coleman died dome time ago. Is run by Ken Ellis. Who as far as I am aware has retired. I spoke to Ken last summer and he said he was retiring in October 2014. Not been in since, but I will call in one day in my lunch h…"

    "Yeah, I wanted my suit for my birthday (tomorrow) but it hasn't even been shipped yet. I do admit to being a bit hot-headed where bad service is concerned, and have exchanged a few choice words with one of the guys there, so it's gotten a little unp…"

    "Well, I do have two of their suits, Graham, of one I had the jacket altered afterwards; otherwise they're good quality. Do have one of their own corduroy "Ronnie" jackets, which is one of my top favourites for almost three years now. They used to do…"

    Quadrophenia: Retrospective of a Cult British Classic

    The famous Brighton seafront. The pier resplendent in the August bank holiday sunshine. Waves crash onto the pebbles, failing to drown out the cries of anger and fear coming from further up the beach. Holidaymakers and families with young children hurry to escape two groups of young men, both dressed distinctively, hurling deckchairs and punches in each other’s direction. The police arrive, and the majority of the offenders are bundled into vans as peace is restored.
