Best wishes Ed, have a very happy birthday - what's left of it! Sorry it's late. Rugby shirts? As nippers we wore them because a mate had a picture of an obscure 60's Mod group 'The Eyes' in them, buttoned up and ironed (not worn like a real ale drinker.) The group also wore parkas with pink scooter tyre tracks over the back! The Eyes Circa '65 Ealing, London Didn't girls wear them as mini-dresses too? I'm sure there's a pic of Twiggers wearing one.
Thanks for the Steve Ellis piece Dopeman and Brownie, I've been rediscovering The Love Affair this week. I'd forgotten how good they were. Steve Ellis wasn't having any of that foppish carry-on was he? Dig these far out Sten gun toting dolly birds! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQZt1ozqT8g
Have to pull you up M-o-M, it's a 'Thin glass'
Thanks Gramps, I've heard about these being worn (along with armbands) and I thought it would look pretentious.* It doesn't. What do I bloody know eh? *Pretentious, moi?
Great photo. The lad on the right, is that a pocket watch or a mark on the photo, I can't make it out?
Brighton Beach 1967 Not entirely relevant, but a great picture.
'Ivy league' or 'preppy' were not terms heard here, the catch all term was 'The Beach Boy look' for Mods, a brief '64 (?) summer style. It consisted of; short sleeved striped shirts, light coloured trousers, white t-shirts (with or without numbers/initials etc) loafers, harringtons, side parted hair, etc. This fad would date very quickly, and a dour style of, for instance - trousers, fine crew neck jumper (with sleeves pushed up like Mick Jagger!) and hush puppies...
'Ere are Brownie - Radio Caroline's 50th birthday http://www.itv.com/news/meridian/update/2014-03-27/radio-caroline-birthday-feature-full-version/
No info. But I'll go for '70. (June)
That's Brownie's find, I've not seen it in it's entirety before. Crowd better dressed than the band
