Quick picture from the recent reggae night in Nottingham. Sorry, Brownie - think you missed out on this one. A few posters from here in the mix, though. Excellent weekend all round and a good afternoon set from brownie CJ. Buttons
Maybe not the height of skinhead fashion and some of their sewing leaves a bit to be desired but great picture, taken on the way to the footy ('68-69 season), in Blackpool. Based on this picture, I bought one of those jackets when I was a kid and have had plenty more since, in various colours. Got a handful left but sold the smaller ones over time. Of course its corduroy and yes, its by Wrangler - their new 'Levi's style' jacket from about '67 which was quite a change...
just a quick comment ... its a leather one. They usually had a tag on the pocket flap, like the denim ones but its white with red writing (unlike the cord ones which were white with black). Its cut slightly different but mostly due to it being leather, which is too bulky, compared to denim for a fully felled seam. They did a couple of slight changes over the years and a couple more variations with the suede ones, all before '69. Cord is a lot softer so creases...
I certainly am, mate. See you at the bar AND on the dance floor.
Inspector, judging by (various aspects of the picture plus) the cut of the shirt, I'd say '69 (as opposed to '68 or '70).(Just look at his) Buttons
Ha ha - not at all. Glad I'm not one - finding clothes must be murder.Keep my sling shot handy just in case I meet a bad one!
That's Big Ray from Whitley Bay, 1974 (mind you, if I wasn't told, I would have said a bit earlier).It does look like him in the lower pic (this is from '79-80 so very unlikely) but if it was, that would have been a mob of giants!
Well over a fiver by then, so that's a lot of dinners.For me, it was the mid-80s, so I was saving up to buy second hand originals from Flip. Still added up to a lot of missed sausage rolls though.
I never had any school dinner in my last 4 years at school. Paid for most of my clothes as a young teen. Would rather be hungry and wear Levis than have shit jeans and chips.
Chief Inspector Clouseau and myself, Paris reggae do, Friday.
