• No mate totally understand, I have always gone for 3 and sometimes 4 button but recently I have boought a few 2 button and as I usually wear either a waistcoat or slipover it looks better to me, pehaps 'in look' ' was the wrong words mate, I am so far away from following what other people wear.

    But for me I would not buy a boating blazer it may well suit others but having tried one on I looked  like a walking deck chair.

  • Sadly not the scooter! Just the boating blazer haha

    • This is a nice jacket, I know it's 2 button , but that's the 'in look' at the moment, 2 button is making a big comeback and it's well known a 2 button suits anybody over 42" chest much better than a 3 button , that just brings your attention to your upper body and gives the appearance of being shorter, wear it with jeans or trousers above your shoes and you look ' verticaly challenged' so come on guys give the 2 button some room,

      Anyway 85 sov's not bad for a well cut bit of schmutter and this weekend I believe 30% off.


  • Thinking about getting this as my first move from 'typical Fred Perry/ nice shirt and v neck jumper, parka, jeans wearing' basic Mod:

    Hoping it'll looks alright on me with some nice Sta Prests and what not.

  • i understand what youre saying jb and perhaps theyre not "in yer face mod " but after trying on a similar jacket to that herringbone one in next i found myself with a "need for tweed "

    the next jacket was just a fashionable jacket for the masses in two buttons with long lapels  but i liked the materiel it was made from and went looking for something more three buttoned and with shorter lapels

    and i think i found it in that asos one

  • was in carnaby st the other day,canny move for boating blazers! some humdingers too.

    • Oh dear that's not good Steven. I'm going down there next Tuesday so I'll have to leave my bank card at home I think otherwise some serious damage may be done!

    • Yes. Last week I saw a beautiful black and white one in the window of Pretty Green. No price tag attached, I think that says it all! The other´s I saw were just the usual Shelly´s/Merc ones!?

    • This one?

      To say PG are taking the piss with the prices they charge, is an understatement.. 

    • Yes, that´s the one; maybe the colours were in reverse. 595; that´s a joke really. When I think that I paid 160 or so for my high quality Gibson one...

      No ticket pocket either... maybe Liam never heard about it...?

      Sherry´s of course, not Shelly´s, I meant in the previous reply.
