Found a bloke on facebook by absolute chance, thought he was someone else, we have a mutal friend in common but when I clicked on his profile was suprised to see a load of really good photos from 68-70. Ive invited him on here to maybe talk about them or share his experience of the era but we'll see. Big Thanks to him for emailing these to me and letting me share them - I think weve had one or two before but I certainly havent seen them...
  Christ, I bet the fella on the right in red braces regrets his days of youthful dressing when he found out he couldn't have kids... 
Think there's something maybe along the lines of the 'market skinhead'. Since this thread has talked about JS, american imported shirts, mtm suits etc what of the knock off brands you wore from surplus shops and the markets ? Did maverick, brutus, lonestar denim be acceptable ? What was the one item you envied or wanted- did you ever get it ? I recall my dad saying how he would skip lunch at school for a whole month to use the lunch money for a pair of staprest. I wonder...
 Would be a nice boot if they didnt use that horrible coated leather...waxy stuff you cant polish on. Erggh ! 
 Going a bit off the path here but.. Looks good, Love a good cutaway collar plain white shirt, and blazer with grey flannels or a light grey trs in summer classic english gent look.

Proper name is a pop over shirt, another Ivy league thing a bit, done by Brooks etc. Dont mind them but wouldnt wear one myself.
Work in progress with a friend. Born out of passion but we'll have a crack at it...watch this space. A 3 finger nice rolled shirt that combines the materials of more 60's ivy league with the British styling we are familiar with, 3 button collar, locker loop, box pleat etc. Will take a while to get it all sorted but hopefully should be good. 
 A film/documentry on Ivy league style and its influence as a whole would/should feature JS and would do better and Id watch it.Equally id watch this one if it was more then the same saddos involved, who were at the birth of every culture ever, knew everyone, shopped at every shop going and have amazing memory. Its just like we have discussed about the proposed book on here, id buy it in a heart beat if it was what pubs you drank at, first threads bought, who did you first...
  I saw this a while ago.. The same fucking typical clueless historical social context dickheads, getting in on everything they possibly can to chip in there 2p.I like John simons, but he was a bloke who started a shop selling american style clothes, and it needs to be left at that.
