|Everything but the kitchen sink: Robert shows us this rare import from Up North-UK.|
24th January, 2013 (Montreal) At last Got Gingham is back in business after a bit of a kerfuffle with the Fashion Licensing Commission. Now that we've got our books in order it's time to get back to giving you Gingham Getters the soup you've been waiting for. And talking about soup, why not some hot Scouse [see here]?
Robert, from Liverpool, home of all things Scouse, brought to these shores this one-of-a-million Off-the-Rack Northern Soul Specials in blue and white to have us dreaming of the good old days of the Beatles, the Liver Building and waiting around Lime Street Station for the last train to London.
Not many people know that despite their reputation, Scousers like to pay for things. Especially our Rob. He says this was a bargain at Primark, but let's just pretend he got it at Grand Central, or one of those other cool boutiques on Merseyside. See, our Robert here, works for a living, and not just as a dishwasher.
Speaking perfect undulating Andalusian Spanish and practically lilting Lilloise French, he can walk into any restaurant in town and start handing out the dishes. Maybe it's he who's the dish? Ladies, hold your horses. He's 'already taken.' Sorry.
Thanks Robert, you've given us all a chance to brush up on our English Regional Accents [see here] and also leave the dishes to the servants.
RAF IS RIFFIN' IN SPECIAL EDITION GINGHAM!
|You touch the merchandise: you pay for it. But in a nice way... according to Raf.|
Still more Gingham Getters are out to prove winter is no excuse to stop being stylish. Check out Raf here, outside a swish resto during the third or fourth course of a five class dinner. Not everybody gets to keep such illustrious company, so next time you're sitting at a table-for-one... perhaps you ought to bring some Gingham. Gingham likes company.
MAJID IS MAGIC IN glorious LONDON UK RAGER!
|Not many people know that 'Majid' means 'Glorious'... we only have to look at his shirt.|
SKRILLEX' GOT GINGHAM!
|Stolen from Youtube/Nardwuar but he prolly paid for his own shirt.|
Our ex-colleague from Vancouver radio--Nardwuar [see here], interviewed Skrillex before his big show there last year. Some people wonder if Dub Step is just some passing fad or here for the longhaul. Waiting for the name or the bass to 'drop'... It hardly matters. The guy's Got Gingham. In fifty year's time when his kids Google him, they will see this shot and realize, he's actually a classic.
MORE MONTREAL GINGHAM STREET STYLE
|In Gingham, you're making cash hand-over-fist.|
|Shops on Boulevard St-Laurent still pushing the Gingham limit.|
|Actually, Ave. Mont-Royal is trying to outdo St-Laurent. This from California Friperie 308.|
|Metro De La Savanne never looked so good. Face taken out, new facade being put in.|
|Queuing for Coffee, Gingham Style. Of course it's not K-pop, but it's still worth the wait.|
Today's caption, "This ain't Jarg" was stolen from the rich street dialect of fashionable Merseyside.
