    Rather! I am a great admirer of Miss Willey...although OT's prices are a bit steep. You can get Smedley's merino undies for less than that in Matlock - it must be the cost of transport to Norfolk!

    Drove through there many times on the way home to Dundalk (more so before the freeway). My wife's family is from Ireland.

    Oh yes, they make grand clothes and offer great service.

    I've been buying Smedley underwear off the internet recently. From the looks of their new catalogue they've stopped making proper underwear for men and have ventured into sating the unformed appetites of fashionable boys. That is, the new vests are made to be worn over denim, and don't even pretend to cover the arse. That's a shame. Still, all the more bargains for the more eagle-eyed among us as they ditch new old stock.

    That's what they sell over the web. The factory sells the old stuff, still.

    Good to hear that. I don't get out much, at least not in Derbyshire. Matlock here I come...

    Anyone locate a good vintage style Henley t-shirt these days? Struggling to find anything on line.

    I found some with a puckered fabric and two buttons by fadded glory. Not quite as nice as the others posted but at nine bucks US I can live with them until I find something better.

    ^ Nice. I have a version from Ralph Lauren that came with a detachable soft collar. I sometimes wear the shirt w/out the collar. I like the option.

    Really? I thought I saw them in store. Maybe I was looking at something else?...
