The Society of Cool!
I know what you mean. I have four great Fred Perry short sleeve's with all the details but the last one i got was from a online sale and the sleeve's come down to my elbow's but i'll be geting the sleeve's shortend so it looks better. Only costs £5 if you speak to the right person. Just make sure they know what they are doing.
i like pretty green but still have my fred perrys from back in the day,went to the pretty green store in carnaby st and got some crackin bargins ,plus get the on-line sale ,my 1st 3 fred perrys came courtious of the UDA in 1980, myself ,stephen johnston and eric christie had bought a bottle of scotch mac and sneaked down an entry behond a sports shop called savages in east belfast when over the wall came 2 cardboard boxs followed by 2 guys with 2 bin bags each ,instead of threating us they let us pick stuff from the bags which were football shirts and fred perrys ,had to hide them from my ma though
Pretty green doesn't really cut the mustard with me personally, the quality isn't meant to be brilliant and I don't like the way he (Liam Gallagher that is) massively over prices stuff, it's almost arrogant the way he prices stuff simply because he thinks because the company has his name behind it, it's worth all that money. I'm sure none of this is true its just I haven't forgiven Oasis for splitting up the night before they were going to play at V-festival 2009 when I was there and the main reason for going was to see them! ;) But joke aside, I think that Pretty Green is a bit of a no-no for a mod, for me its like having a t-shirt on that says I AM A MOD on the front in big florescent letters or a badge that says MOD on it...It's just not cool. Anyway back to the point, after that possibly offensive rant (sorry it had to come out) I think you'll find I prefer Fred Perry ;) :D
P.S I meant no offence to anyone who owns a t-shirt saying I AM A MOD on the front in florescent letter or a badge that says MOD or anyone that owns Pretty Green clothes ;)
I believe any opinion is a good opinion! so its great to hear your views! And if the quality of the clothes that are produced arent up to suitable standards then i think Mr Liam gallagher should really invest time with what his customer audience wants not upon his personal likes but to defend Pretty Green most products are made in the u.k which is good to see however that doesnt guarantee that the prices should be so high.But i whatever designer you have on your back mods know how to dress smart!x
This month I would say Pretty Green over Fred Perry, next month I may say something else
Bought quite a bit from Pretty Green, including an excellent overcoat. Pleased with all i've bought and instore service excellent !!
Pretty excellent customer service i know someone who works in the cardiff's pretty green store.Thats one of their big aims is customer satisfaction.
people were very critical of their quadrophenia parka and the price of it in particular but when you think about it youre getting a brand new m51 [ ive seen unissued military ones at £750 elsewhere ] and authentic " the who " rock merchandise [ official band merchandise itself is always very pricey ]
i seen someone wearing one and it genuinely was an excellent replica.
with only 100 made i reckon you cant lose if you put it up for re sale in a year or two's time on ebay as well .
if only i had the dosh to buy one in the first plaice !
dont have any pretty green. really like fred perry at the moment.
