    Just a single sock to keep me decent.

    On warmer days, I go for a rugby sock.

    Usually polo shirts and chinos from the likes of Burton and ASDA online, with a bit of Amazon and eBay in the mix. I haven't been to a physical clothes shop in years. I also wear stuff until they are falling to bits, none of this fast fashion nonsense.

    Paul Smith / Barbour for jackets
    Paul Smith / Far Afield / Rapanui for tops
    Wrangler / Edwin for jeans
    Spoke for chinos
    Paul Smith / Far Afield / Edwin for shorts
    Adidas for trainers
    Paul Smith / Emporio Armani for pants
    DKNY / Pringle / Lyle & Scott for socks

    Got a few other brands mixed in. Miss proper Duffer and 55DSL for clothing, both gone. :(

    Ah Lyle and Scott are fairly underrated for cheap hoodies too. The logo is an aspirational Stone Island but there we go. Vilebrequin for swim shorts!

    Pardon me if I came across as a sartorial disaster in my post, # 33, but I favour button down shirts as I have reading glasses hanging from a cord around my neck, and the cord catches on a collar that isn’t buttoned down when I raise them up.
    No doubt another no-no, I always have a breast pocket on my shirts, not for my phone, that would spoil the line of the shirt, it’s a hangover from my Black Cab days, that pocket was where the fivers, tenners, etc. went.

    quick question why bother with named items ? most are out of the same factory's as the cheaper items .. and yes you pay for the name/badge ?
    i know this from yrs ago making sweets ..yes i know but same difference we made for 20 different places ..ok the e's made be different but the basic's were the same ?

    To take your food factory example, yes the products can be made at the same factory, but the ingredients can be hugely different ultimately deciding whether they are classed as a more premium product or not.

    Back to clothes, I have many now that don't even have a label, you can just feel the quality of how well made, fit and how nice they feel to throw on.

    I wear quite a bit of Ted Baker now a days, polos, shorts and coats.

    Mostly it's otherwise just Next, Adidas, Ben Sherman stuff with a smattering of other brands if it's a particular item I like.

    Not as fancy and glamorous as the fashionistas here.
    Jeans and basic good quality cotton or band t-shirt, hoodie if it’s cool enough.

    I mostly just go in tkmaxx and buy some bargains that I like the look of. Usually wrangler, timberland, penguin or a sportswear brand. Clarkes shoes and I prefer nike trainers.

    There is a difference between "named" items and "items where their name is synonymous with quality".

    A TM Lewin shirt for example is orders of magnitude better quality than a Next shirt, and often they can be had at similar prices.

    A lesson I learned on a Debenhams Linea quilted jacket was that it lasted 5 minutes versus my Barbour quilted jacket that is now 5 years ago.
