    I'm nincreasingly attracted to this sort of workwear waistcoat as a potential alternative for when the weather gets so hellishly warm I cannot wear a jacket (anything north of a beastly 22 degrees celsius or so). I miss the extra pockets for wallet / field telephone / pens the most...

    Edward - I find waistcoats great for warmer days.

    If you're after something a little more English, these are worth a look: http://www.crojack.co.uk/p-23/trick

    I believe that is the brand, ive seen a few other pieces from this brand before but nothing as nice as this.
    This is exactly what I was looking for, for when the weather gets warm. I to prefer vests rather than jackets in the summer.

    RRL's website has been partially updated. It looks like Summer '14 is a sailor theme. There are some cool pieces.

    I have a shirt that looks to be the same, but in a plaid cotton twill. Are the front buttons positioned very close to the left-hand edge of the right side of the shirt? Mine are and it tends to gap between buttons as a result. In other respects, I like the fit and details of the shirt very much.

    Haha! I was thinking "but when he's bad, he's horrid" but you put it much better than I would've!

    I got a Brown's Beach tie today. The fabric is incredible. I wish I could afford more than just a tie...

    They aren't. :( The Hill-Side just does accessories.
    This does seem to be the same Japanese made fabric that's used by Freewheelers etc.
