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.
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...
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!
