Just a single sock to keep me decent.
On warmer days, I go for a rugby sock.
Crotchless knickers and fishnets
Your name says FatBOY yet you sound like a woman.
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.
I'm of an age where I wear whatever my wife buys for me
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.
Gucci belt and potatolord's other rugby sock.
on saturday i bought five pairs of shorts for the gym and lounging about in from the jumble sale known as sports direct
I've been wearing a corset 24/7 for the past 10 days...
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.
Jeans from River Island and tops from Jack & Jones or Hollister.
