Tricky one, I like Formby's straight forward, 6 pints in, no fucking about approach but, on the other hand, their mails always start with Dear Sir, so Florisgreens advice would make more sense to maintain the delusional impression they clearly have of me.




Think I'll sleep on it and get back to the c*nts in the morning.
I had Boggi ask me for VAT number and passport ID several years back when they still did good twill flannel trousers. They're going through the motions and just tell them you are private citizen of good solid standing.

As you know, it's a different world down there.

I bought this Chester Barrie Mac today, in their closing down sale reduced from £350.00 to £50.00...

I was looking at a Carl Friedrik weekend bag, but found this Smith and Canova bag instead. I may get the Carl Friedrik in the future.

Received erroneously with other scarves (I will post successively) from Joshua Ellis. Very nice material, light Escorial wool, but a rather modern pattern that doesn't appeal to me really.

Just arrived today for the next autumn: Hestra gloves in carpincho in Cork and Camel colours. Carpincho is a stunning leather with a velvety look and feel, possibly even nicer than peccary.

Very nice. They are on my list for when the lockdown ends. Hopefully this week. Thanks for the feedback...was thinking of either Peccary or this. Might even choose your leather because they are beautiful gloves.

At long last l ordered my tracksuit pants. They are made in France in a small workshop by expert maker Phillipe Gaber. He has an order limit of one item. Looking forward to how good these are.

Simple and somehow old fashioned. We have similar tastes.

Those were the days. I used to get mtm jeans too, from a factory in Preston, family owned, and jeans in all different colours. After about 1992, all gone.

You can still get jeans sort of mtm in Brunswick. Venus I think it’s called. There’s a queue outside on saturdays. Basically they have a few styles and they alter them as you like. Cheap too.

edit:: its Dejour not Venus

That is the best thing; look for buildings that look like obscure dumps with queues of people and you will often strike gold. It is a rare site these days. Only the people `in the know' go there. Love those kind of places. Same went to for place in Preston, an absolute dump of a building, but pure gold inside. Great quality well cut jeans, and about $50 in the 1980's....locally made in the factory.
