I think we never had this picture before, just called : a skinhead in the 1960s  
Monsieur, we don't look like monkeys in this country.  From what i know of this story, the locals thought the monkey was a spy operating for the French. One of our members location is "land of the hanged monkey". He maybe knows better than you and i this story. Totally off topic !
  Something a bit different, new at Oi Polloi : Lee honey cord Rider jacket
  Another with the same credits : Ewing Galloway (an American journalist that owned a photo agency, he died in 1953), dated january1st 1960.  The other picture is dated january 1st 1950 ! But it's the same photo shoot, you can recognize the people. So 1950, or 1960 ? Both are possible as even if he died in 1953, if the picture is from 1960 it has the name of the agency.   Well, most probably shot in the USA then, but there is no precision of the location...   I...

I'm almost sure i already saw this picture and they are french teenagers.i could be wrong of course.
^ now i understand what you mean, it's true the chest pockets are a bit slanted compared to Levi's. You'll find different models of Lee Rider (101) Jacket, the denim being more or less thick. The 'raw' jean ones are the thicker. I've got a Lee Europe Rider jacket of great quality, the Lee Japan ones are even better but harder to find.
The album was released in 1982, but i don't know when the picture was taken... You must remember !   i aways loved this photo, the 4 of you have a great look.
^ If i remember well Tom, it's the jacket you wear on the picture of the back cover of The Good, the Bad and...   Would be great to see you at the meet up BTW...
