 Agreed - a very 1972 look. I'm pleased to say that I never wore either garment.
 Looks a bit of a hotch-pot of styles to me - Skinhead/Suedehead/Mid 70's Northern Soulie
 As promised, an update on the Twisted Wheel. We had a good night on Friday as we had a nice chat with others, the music is always good and we did plenty of dancing.
