Did you know Lewes is where The Chap magazine is based? It's all about the terrible state of male attire in the modern world. Grown men in shell suits and trainers, nasty cagoules and scruffy bombadiers jackets. A nice bit of tweed and jaunty hat make the world a better place don't you think?

Tweed is not good it looks as if you have raided a dressing up box .
I suggest Polo neck retro black leather and straight jeans finished with the classic eight hole black DM
For day wear Kickers are back , a cagoule is acceptable only when raining otherwise dark simple patterned jumper
Your style gurus - Take That if , like me , you are going for the slightly crinkly eyed but still stylish dad look.

Newmania you sounds like your dressed for a heist! Retro tweed of the right colour and cut is perfectly acceptable - without care blokes can look like Terry Thomas!

Met The Chap himself once. Nice guy. Wife and children all dressed accordingly. Good fun and I admire their Chutzpah.

Newmania , your dress sense has obviously not evolved from the 80's. It probably suited you as a young man, but 30 years later it just looks sad.

actually I don't feel there are enough crusties around...you know,that evocative wiff of patouli and a dog on a string

Ive not heard the term Crustie for years!! What is the precise definition? When does a dosser become a crustie?

I think Crusties originated in Bath (though, on consideration more likely out of, or never in). Dossers of a sort, they tangle their hair into dreadlocks, often with lumps of something else added, I can't think why. The results are definitely not recommended for crochet. I don't know what kind of music is associated with them, but I don't think it is Hayley Westenra. I haven't heard of them for a while, either, Cynic. Tell your mother her organic turnip leaf teacosy is well on the way.
