  1. Superb! Thank you so much!

  2. It's very disappointing this year. The reductions are the smallest that I, as a loyal customer for over 30 years, can remember. A large proportion of the stock is still full price.

    The classic chinos with the button fly (my favourite) have been dropped this year. The classic chinos with a zip fly are only available in three colours and are out of stock in most sizes. The twill jeans, another personal favourite, which were made in Yorkshire, have been dropped too.

    The summer gabardine trousers now have the dreaded elastane and are a very different, tighter fit. The lightweight chinos are only available in one size. The polo shirts are no longer made in England.

    I'll therefore be giving the Piccadilly store a miss this summer. Cordings has raised prices substantially, reduced the quality (especially the fabrics), and cut back on stock. Very sad!

  3. Superb products! Thank you for the news!
