Garmology podcast: The annual festive episode – With Shaun, Jon and Nick (S05E07 #106)

By popular demand, the festive special episode is back! Described variously as “like listening to three guys talk about clothes in a pub” and “clearly the most insightful and deep analytical discussion of the day”, the reputation precedes this in-demand recording. This year the boys cover choice and controversial topics, such as bootcut jeans, institution core, buying vintage from Malaysia, shonky shoes for sale and how no one pays attention to our cute little outfits.

Featuring Shaun Brown and Jon Fowler, aka These_Rough_Notes and HeavyJon on Instagram.

  • Early reviews of this episode are mixed, so your listening pleasure is uncertain:

  • The Country Smallhold said “They dress for the occasion but are they up to it?”
  • Business of Fashion said “Clearly our days of shilling for the man are over, all hail the three kings.”
  • Gentleman’s Quarterly: “A laidback and comfortably paced chat perfect for accompanying the preparation of sprouts”.
  • Amateur Carp Fishing Monthly said, “ It’s not really our thing.“
  • Carnoustie Guide & Gazette said, “It’s a podcast with men talking.“
  • From Twitter @JeansAndSheux “The scene appreciates the respect shown and offers a Peroni in return.”
