Definitely buyer beware on the jeans. I noticed the made in Sri Lanka and the turn up showing ordinary stitching, but why? Obviously not selvedge material. I can't remember if my early 501's were selvedge though.
Yes, back in the day lucozade came in a big glass bottle and was wrapped in yellow/orange celophane. It was usually taken by people that were ill. My mum asked our GP if she should buy it for me when I was sick and he said don't waste your money as it was only sugared water. Clever marketing turned it into an energy drink that was essential for distance running and was the drink of the London marathon.
Looks like the Merry Fiddlers pub. I am surprised Pete liked 2 button jackets. In 1969 I looked like him but in 1970 my hair would have been longer.Pity we can't see the shoes worn. Then we could have seen if he was going down the Ivy route.
TI think the photo was taken in the Merry Fiddlers pub Dagenham a well known skinhead pub by 1969. It was mentioned in a documentary at the time. I went there a few times but didn't rate it. A rival pub was the Westbury Arms in Barking. If your face didn't fit you could easily find yourself in trouble in either pub.Better pubs were to be found along the Mile End Road.
IMO, looking back, the BenSherman was superior to some USA shirts sold in the UK but we were elitist and snobbish and if everyone could buy a Ben then we were looking for something different. I wish BS made as good quality today. I don't remember wearing any short sleeved Ben Sherman and the USA short sleeved ones I always craved.
