    On yer bike!

    On the issue of lighting, I would never take a chance, I always use modern LED lamps, cycling around London is dangerous and you need to make yourself very visible. I do have one of these which I attach to my lamp bracket on the 50's roadster when I am going to be using it in the dark. It's...

    On yer bike!

    It is pretty thick isn't it? Oddly very soft and supple at the same time, so no breaking in problems either. I can attest to the waxy tan developing a lovely patina, the leather on the boots I have have really started to gain that patina (I use 3 different polishes, light brown, light tan and...

    On yer bike!

    You'll notice that one of the pictures features a bike with a honey brown Brooks saddle with a matching (non-Brooks) toolbag. This bike has been entirely covered in leather and has diamonds in the bar end plugs. http://blog.nicholasjames.com/?p=369

    I normally take an 11 or 11 1/2 and ordered the 11, they feel like a true 11 to me, snug but certainly not tight.

    Hi Paddy, I have these in tan. Good shoes for the price, very lightweight and comfortable, I highly recommend them for the price. I had my local cobbler put some rubber soles on as the leather ones weren't great without toe clips. Here I am wearing them on the Tweed Run last weekend.

    Is that the Hercules? It's nice, rather partial to the Hercules brand - just my size too!

    Actor Gary Oldman and his love of fashion

    Vintage store in West Norwood?? I didn't know about this place - I live a couple of miles from there! Must give it a try.

    Actor Gary Oldman and his love of fashion

    It's generally a thoroughly modern style, very slim fitting, there's always one or two things in his collections I'd like but having experienced his stuff before, the quality vs price differential is enormous. Nothing I've bought him there has lasted more than a year of normal wear (except...

    I like it, especially the band. Then again I've been known to wear my Pith around London parks for no other reason than it protects my head!
