I didn't know anyone with a camelhair sports jacket.. Navy blazers, Prince of Wales, Houndstooth ,Dogtooth and Mohair were our thing. All 3 button, centre vent but not 3/2 roll and fitted not sack style except for the blazers
That's how I remember it. I was a big James Brown fan but, I can't say I was into him before about 72/73. By about 1975 the clubs I went to were playing him all the time including all his back catalogue.
JB was popular with my mates from about 1972/3 when the clubs we went to started to play the jazz/funk style of music.1968/69 was all about ska, reggae, bluebeat etc. Soul music was big for us (Stax/Atlantic) pre 1969 and the local Palais played Tamla which we considered a bit commercial.
'Keep it neat and keep it clean' was exactly the mantra of my mob. We would have agreed with you on the logos as well. I seem to remember a Slazenger logo was also acceptable. I think the Fred Perry logo is or was the best logo of all but that would for me be down to nostalgia.
If you are over 60 (which most originals are) and you pay London borough council taxes you can get a free Oyster card. I have one which I use occasionally. Needs to have a photo so not transferable. Oyster cards are free for some tube workers their families and even friends. A bit of a racket really but I am not complaining.
I can still smell those first pair of brand new Levi's! The orange tab ones I bought next were somehow not the same. My brother and me both sat in a cold water bath to shrink our red tabs. Mum went spare when she saw the colour of the water in the bath. I always liked a deep indigo colour for my jeans. For my mob Wranglers didn't quite cut it because they were cheaper and not so rigid.
