What are the best modern clincher tyres that look retro, with tan sidewalls, there doesn't seem to be a lot out there

Thanks.

Cheap Schwalbe ones which have 'rubberised' tan sidewalls.

The old Michelin World Tours are still around in all black as well as amber (gum) walls. I personally love em.

There are still some Michelin Dynamics around, but I think they've been discontinued now so they're getting rare. The good thing is that a lot of shops are selling them off cheap at the moment.

There's also Veloflex Paves if you want something a bit more sporty - lovely, supple, fast tyres but not very durable

x2 for veloflex. Really nice but don't wear so well.

Schwalbe Lugano
Michelin Dynamic
Michelin Erilium 2 (has a red line between the black and tan section)
Vittoria Open Corsa Evo CX
Veloflex Master 22 (the former Pavés)

I can really recommend the Veloflex ones... use 'em with latex inner tubes and you'll have a tubular like ride.
Not cheap though, but comfort and grip all the way.
