After that I've GOT to see it! LOL
Speaking of suits, Wednesday was charity shop day. A couple of interesting items caught my eye... Some Crockett and Jones ox-blood brogues, needing some TLC. My size, but a narrow fitting. An Italian-made lightweight suit, with four buttons. Size 36". Any of you got a nephew into mod revival?

Funnily enough, you just brought up another pre-skinhead memory for me.It must have been late 1966 or early 1967 when there was a vogue for surplus scarlet guardsman's jackets.

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. As I recall, they all looked pretty much the same - basic western jeans, not too skinny in the leg - apart from the stitching on the back pockets....
