Evening Style Mongers. Started the day all Graced up in the sunshine, running, euphoric, (it is after all Jones week, unofficially), but now its rather gloomy, and these shirts just aren't saying Jones, right? The most soulful can get them round to is via The Jam. Had them made for a client of mine as am sick of paying dollar for quite average, pony ready-to-wear 'designer' semi-smart shirts. Though would make to measure, call the fabrics, and get to fit, and see how it goes. Straight, but clipped. What do you reckon team?

This is probably the most unusual, with a rounded 'Paris' tab collar, minus the tab and with additional collar buttons. They are of course from Emmett. Button down style is coming back big time, and looking good. I only really go there with shorts, open, and with trainers, but there one goes. These are for semi-casual looks, I repeat. Semi-bleedin'-casual.

Fine striped blue cotton with Lyon collar. Okay, not a mad game changer, but did narrow the placket a trifle.  Might make all the odds. Check the lads collars below while you're here. Remember trudging to John Menzies in Keynsham High Street to buy this. It wasnt glamorous then, and it isnt now, perhaps less so.

Not really got the stomach for this caper today/this evening. Whole day slipped from underneath me and now am tapping this out in the dark to Radio 3 Opera on Three, quite pony, while the cleaner woman clumsily clatters accessories and chattels on the rosewood. Angst? Um, fuck yes. Living the dream? Er, no.

This one I like too, a Liverpool collar, in white Oxford, narrow placket and ting, the most The Jam of all perhaps, no?

Then this guy is Paris tab without the tab, and no placket required too. Straight but good. Bear in mind, not trying to change the sodding world, just tweak it a tad, Roger? See how these go down and then maybe I get to have another crack and push it further. Did a black Liverpool style one, no placket, but cant be bothered to snap it. Gonna go and see Holden. He's doing ribs, isn't it?

Stubbs out.

PS. Who's less stylish? Bruce or Rick. Tricky. If you were to be in The Jam, but you werent Paul, who would you be? What about Mick? Hm..Not with that hair. T.C.M is one of the first Jam songs with keyboard that would eventually led the new way for Weller, righty?
