Obviously taken in the Via Carnabia!
A little digression. Jack, Bobby, and Ted. The first US President born in the 20c and his Bros certainly had a kind of smart/casual preppy style (though who is Bobby sharing those teeth with, for heaven's sake!) From the 'High Snobiety' website: "Oxford shirts, college style sweaters, brogues and a decent pair of leisure pants are a staple in every genuine male wardrobe.

Welcome to the forum London spike 'ead - hope you don't mind if I call you that, because 'spy kid' was an invention of the UK press.

Okay, the Windrush event has been and gone. I was there for the afternoon session. Observations. As always, brilliant to be with Bob and Suzie! Briefly made the acquaintance of a few other people. Bob grilled me about 'original' era details, of course. Conversation was impossible. It was a bit strange to see a room full of forty-somethings, dressed roughly how I used to dress when I was 18 but not quite. It was good to notice that most of the blokes' Levis were of...
There were probably more Italians than Weegies there!
Walk about with my hand up what?
