I had a fishtail one in 1969 from the local A&N shop.No idea what serial number it was and no one cared at the time .iirc it had fur around the hood (quickly removed ) and a button out quilted cotton lining.it was HUGE.A relative of mine commented that it was the first time he had seen anyone walking around town in a tent !They were soon mass produced without the removable lining and in a slimmer fit.They became standard schoolkids wear in the Millets 3/4 length square cut...

iMO the cat was out of the bag by the end of '71 with the Tams TOTP visit.I remember being annoyed at constantly hearing that tune everywhere .It took away the allure of the music we had previously only heard at the Youth Clubs and local Discos.It just seemed that every Harry,Tom and Dickhead was now a Soul fan.For a couple of years Soul had been the latent driving beat to me.The first music that I had claimed my own and along with a select few,identified with.The fact...

"In 2006, the original Lee 101z Rider jeans worn by James Dean (pictured above) were auctioned off for $35,850. Lee Japan has introduced a replica of these same 101Z Rider jeans worn by James dean in Giant for the Lee Archives in 13,25oz narrow loom, Sanforized indigo cast denim with its characteristic one-side selvedge."
