I can confirm that the Lee Cooper jeans shown in the photos are totally different to the ones that were about in the late 60s.What follows below is a recap, I guess, of what I have said before.Recollections from Blackpool, 67/68:All of the following brands of jeans were acceptable - Levis, Wrangler, Lee (Lee Rider), Lee Cooper.

Accepted, but it wasn't what I was saying, or perhaps it's better to say it wasn't what I meant.One of the reasons we didn't wear belts back in the day was because our Levis shrank to fit, and they didn't need a belt.*Maybe the cat in the hat's strides hold themselves up without one. Maybe he's going for a fairly minimalist look. Who can say? My comment was meant to convey the sense of, well, if our thread is about 'the look goes on', then it's just a wee bit ironic if we...
I'm with Duke on the shades. I quite like the dark sheepskin - I have one myself. The boots leave me cold.
