Can't wear visible socks with either of these looks IMO.

It's nice but doesn't look particularly special.
Spending Visvim money it would have to be *exactly* what I want and it doesn't sound like this is for you?

I like it but agree with the above. You could probably get something by SNS herning in the sales for much cheaper that does the same job.

Just to continue on the folk fat face debate…

Folk x John Lewis

Quite like it except the logo.

I guess that Folk wouldn’t want to normally distribute their stuff to a store like John Lewis so a collab is a way for them to access that wider tier without diluting their brand too much. That’s if Folk are making the clothes, but it could be they are providing design services, print etc and using JL’s production sourcing (seems more likely given price point and BCI cotton which I don’t think folk ordinarily mention?). In which case it’s a fairly easy way for Folk to get paid and JL to get a cooler brand into their store.

I wonder if they’ve recently had some investment and it’s a way to expand?

That folk x fatface stuff is all dirt cheap now. Got one of the rugby shirts and the beige sweatshirt, quality on both is great for £20.
