I had no idea that Speedo brand even existed that far back. Both designs pictured are handsome garments, but my personal preference would be for the zippered cardigan with the raglan sleeves. It looks to be every bit as comfortable as one of my old, well worn sweatshirts!
The brand name alone should have sold a lot of those shirts. I could see myself wearing the grey plaid and the burgundy shirts, even now, but not with that top collar button buttoned. Today's illustration has me reflecting on the good old days, when I used to take multi day canoe trips down the AuSable River from Grayling, MI, to Oscoda, MI, camping along the river and cooking the morning's catch over an open fire (or if the fish were not biting that day, tearing open an MRE) and chowing down! Those were truly the days of wine and roses.
Real style is said to be timeless, while fashion is passing. The garments pictured in that wonderful illustration could easily and seamlessly worked into today's wardrobes. Proof positive that we are being treated to a glimpse into McGregor Style!
LOL, I appreciate thae thought. While I've worn a fair number of McGregors designs in the past, I cannot recall ever wearing one of their sport coats. Indeed, I was blissfully ignorant of their existence, prior to reading your post.
As was I. There are so many things that are like that - little things that happened in the history of a company that were there for a short period of time and, then, gone.LOL, I appreciate thae thought.

Somewhere in my 20s, I'm pretty sure I, too, owned a McGregor windbreaker -mine was in navy .Deja' vue? The McGregor windbreakers I had were blue and a rusty tan hue, much like the sport coat pictured. Wish I still had those jackets, but I doubt they would fit my newly acquired girth!
