Hi,first post so here goes,I am a new mod(48year old)mid life crisis,but enjoying every minute,new to scootering always loved the music.Birthday coming up and want to treat myself to a pretty green boating blazer,£275 in sale.
I think they look fab,can anyone tell me about the fit,the cut etc
hi alan havent seen the prety green ones but they seem a bit dear stuars of london do stunning boating blazers for about 170 modclothing do them for about the same price hope this helps
Atom Retro have some good 1s in here n their! Too be honest mate i wouldnt give PG the dosh for it, also wont be as good a cut!!
hi alan sounds pretty dear if you ask me but if its the one you want and your happy with the price then go for it, have a look at adam of london some lovely gear on there mate.
recognise the liberty print of the shirt underneath the blazer, it was printed in the factory where I work
Yeah, it´s from the modclothin´website.
Welcome to this here fantastic forum and the Mod scene in general. Honestly, if I had that money, I'd add the £25 pounds extra to your £275 sum and I'd get a really nice,off the peg slim fitted Tonik or Check suit from Adam of London. Or, if they didn't float your boat then check out claudio at DNA Groove.
I happened to be in Pretty Green store in Carnaby St last week (Let me stress that Newburgh St off Carnaby st has far superior quality in shops such as Peckam Rye and Blaqua) and I saw their clobber and some of it is ok but honestly, steer clear of anything that veers towards mainstream. Not wishing to pee in anyone elses pool but for years I shopped in all the usual, cliche places around Carnaby st and that, etc; it was only after finding Adam, DNA, Mendoza, etc that I realiseded that I'd squandered so much money buying below par gear.
And for Boating Blazers, I saw two crackers in Paul Smiths Covent Garden store also. £275 is a lot of money to spend on an off the peg blazer bought over the internet. You could get a really decent off the peg, quality suit for near the same money if you do a bit of shopping around such as Adam and Claudio. Just my humble opinion sir.
Adam of London all day long, i to own the Gibson one and it's a great fit but looks no where near as good as the Adam ones imo.
Yes, I love the look of the AoL one, especially the purple one. It looks like I need my lower ribs removed to wear it though, hahaha!
As for the Gibson, I´m mad for covered buttons!
