Style – Men’s Polo Shirts on a budget

By Stefano on June 6th, 2013

Round about now I go on a mad search in my wardrobe for my collection of Fred Perry’s. When that search proves fruitless I normally treat myself to a polo shirt or two, one from here or here and another cheapo from a High Street store.

If that’s you cunning plan too, here is a round up of some of the best High Street polos.

Style Safari: Polka Dot Shirts – Peter Werth, Guide London, ASOS and more

Lambretta Polka Dot Shirt £30

Just reduced in the sale this short has an unusual Polka Dot style print. More 80s than 60s style with that collar. Lambretta

Polka Dot shirts never really seem to go and in out of style. However at the moment there does appear to be a bit of mini renaissance with a number of High Street stores offering them alongside specialist labels and heritage brands. Maybe it is because, as we have been told, 60s Op Art looks will be big this year.

Anyhow here then are a selection of five of the best. They are all dark with white dots and range from classic 60s Mod styling through short sleeve summer wear.

Let The Right One In: Teenage vampires inspire ‘vintage’ looks

By Colin Chapman on April 16th, 2009

Let_the_right_one_in.jpgWhilst a pre-pubescent teen may not be the obvious inspiration for a menswear blog, the styling details in Swedish art-house vampire stunner Let the Right One In are so, well, stunning that they couldn’t go unmentioned. Lead character Oskar, works the tucked in boots look so well it makes a grown man feel inadequate. Such insouciance! The padded jackets, tone-matched sweater and scarf combos, not to mention the awesome blonde, feather cut-hair are enough to make me want to venture into the smelly world of vintage clothing. Well, almost.

These boots by Margiela are what Oskar would wear. At over £400 they’re definitely beyond his pocket-money but I reckon you could turn up something similar if you can face the vintage trawl. Match with plum cords and a sweater in this season’s blue for a Spring take on that 1970s Swedish vampire-fancier look.

PS. the film is highly recommended if you’re wondering what I’m on about. Let the Right One In is at cinemas now.

A quick Wiki of ‘duffle coat’ offers a great backstory and an explanation of why I was spelling it ‘duffel’. The name refers to the Belgian town of Duffel, where the thick woollen fabric used in making the coats originated. Marvellous fact!
Duffle coats make a great winter layer, and as February approaches you can pick up some bargains in the sale that won’t be out of date by next winter. The traditional colour is camel, but that can look a little indietastic, so go for muted greys, navys or good old black.
