For me, it was a seemless transition.I never woke up one morning thinking: today, I'm going to be a suedehead. Like most - I would imagine - it just happened, a bit like suddenly finding you'd grown pubes. It was an evolution that came about because of the people we saw (I was never a trend-setter) wearing gear we fancied. And, what was available to buy.In contrast, I did wake up one day and think: today, I'm off to the barbers to have my hair cropped and opt for the...
Met Prof Keith tonight - with his sister - and told him the prog was met with an element of aprobition by you guys... which I reckon he appreciated. FTR: I like - sort of - how Phil Daniels mention how he was the 'good-lookin' young star of Quardraphinea... aye, right, kid. Not a bad film; not quite of 'the day' but none the less, a great projection of how I remember things back in the day. MoM is way-more astute and tuned-in than me, so I acknowledge his take on...
Was she an ostrich?

Once you've read ONE book, it gets easier.Now: "The cat sat on the mat...'
Elwood: I remember the Lee denim jacket - never had one - but never a two-pocket Wrangler. Though I don't doubt the veracity of what you say. The thing with Wrangler jeans - and jackets - was that the way they faded was never really as good(IMHO) as the Lee variants, which, in turn, were not as good as Levi's. It's all subjective, of course - horses for courses, etc. A peek at the Lee denim: http://denimhunters.com/2012/05/leeriderjacket/
Yep.It was Manchester Central Grammar School for Girls... I attended the boys' school up until 1970. (It was a couple of miles away at Belle Vue.)Turn-ups too big for 1969 and, hair too long - even for 'The Wheel'. But I'm often wrong.The cord jacket might even be a Levi, IIRC the collar was a wee bit bigger on those.I had a few cord jackets in 68-69, always Wrangler and with the Blue Bell label.My denim jackets - two, i think and one was second-hand - were always Levi's...
Great pics, fellas. Loved the description of ...'we were going for a fight' - priceless. What is even more interesting and entertaining of course, was that it happened - up here, too - in the day when no one had mobiles, yet, punch-ups would be organised and a failure to attend would lead to a severe loss of face - if not literally then definitely metaphorically. Brilliant stuff.
Skinny braces - oh, yes.T-shirt... maybe it was winter?Great photie!
For those who (still) believe in buying British here's a fairly comprehensive list. Not sure if the entire lot can be relied upon, what with the number of far-east exports the rest of the world has taken to its bosom, but you have to start somewhere. http://www.greyfoxblog.com/p/british.html
