Impressive turnout.Glad to see everyone enjoying a spell of decent weather
Not sure about which one was talked about then ,but Leather Safari jackets were a post suedehead thing for a brief moment.Seen worn with salt and pepper tweed flares,lambswool polo neck sweaters,long hair and Toppers ! Very much a  Wynegard / Bodie and Doyle look IMO.   
I had a pr of Lee Cooper jeans and  they looked nothing like that.They were very lightweight in comparison to the more desireable Lee,Levi,or Wranglers of the day.The fit was quite narrow and they didn't fade very well.I think i recall some cord jackets that were almost acceptable though?
I think Roy and I had a conversation on here regarding selvedge? I never recall it being recognised as a detail that was important (or aware of ?).Things like the loop on your shirt,seam on the heel of your Loafers,or re-placement of your jacket Levi Label….was.Roy disagrees with me.My recollections are that Pre '69 era jeans were worn predominantly with shoes and were  worn without showing any of the inside of the jeans.I am guessing that with the move toward boots that...

Agree on the Glasses.Along with the watch,seems to pull the whole look together for me,adding just enough color and interest.As someone who now wears glasses more and more,I spend a considerable time and money on them.Claire Goldsmith has a lot to answer for !
On the subject of Polo's etc, I have been looking for some time for shirts in Aertex fabric.I have fond memories of these as a kid and love the way it ages as a casual summer shirt.Seemingly J.Simon was collaborating with the Manchester company to have some items made some years ago,but I do not know if it ever materialized?   New to me is this Company:   http://www.old-town.co.uk   They have a couple of things that spurred my interest.The popover shirt in different...
Likewise.It might be an American term as it's used by Brooks Bros? I used it only to differentiate from the usual knit cuff found on L/S T shirts/sweats etc.
