Just noticed this little outlet on Church Road yesterday with some fine clothing and shoes in the window, only open a few days a week though.

It's been around for a little while now - maybe 6 months? Not been in myself.

It's a great little shop. The guy who runs it is clearly a huge 50s enthusiast and he has found some unusually good quality vintage suits, shirts, shoes etc. Well worth a - R bought a fabulous shirt there a while back.

I love the 1950s although I of course wasn't born anywhere near the decade in question.

I'll have to take a look.

Sounds intriguing. I used to be a big fan of so-called antique (=50s) clothing in my 20s. Not sure I would fit into any of it now. Weren't they a lot more petite (women at least!) in those days?

CMC caters for men only - and yes, I think we were all a bit leaner in those days.

Here's to curves! :D

Very favourable review on page 82 of this week's Time Out (now given out free)! :)

Not surprised, his clothes are definitely a cut above the usual so-called retro outlets.

They certainly are, I've had a Hawaiian shirt, a black overcoat and a great black Dickies bomber jacket from him, all very good quality indeed, and all very good value; £40, £80 and £60 respectively.
I make mixes, some of which are quite good. My wife and I cook things too.
