Interesting Clouseau,though I do not remember seeing Levi Jackets with Pockets,until the 70s.The one I bought in `68(and `70 which a Girlfriend nicked,years later), certainly did not have them-because they had a shape as opposed to the Wrangler which seemed baggier.The present Leather will never have the quality of the original ones,but it is still not bad.I have not seen the Suede so I cannot comment.
Levi (I believe)did a few Colours in Cord Jackets.I can remember a Mate of mine having a Blue one,in the 60s.
Was it not this Style that Levi copied later(putting in side pockets I mean).
I thought you were older.....
ts funny really,or so I think.Every day they shove "you have got to be slim and fit" etc.,etc.down your throat and (as the comments above show) are failing miserably.Back in the 60s,Women had more knowledge of how to dress themselves.They did not try and squeeze into things that were two sizes too small-otherwise you had the others taking the Gypsy`s Kiss out of them.There were larger Women about,but they dressed accordingly.
There are some very smart older Fellas about.I find some of the Women cannot carry it off-especially if they dress "Skinhead"
I have to say that I find the music thing a bit of a red herring,I know that skinheads liked reggae and soul whilst they were skinheads,but a lot of them seemed to move on to other music later ? and surely there were other skinheads / suedeheads who weren't into music at all ? I think that people on this thread are generally still into music from that era ? and no doubt lots of former Mods and Skinheads still listen to it,but I bet than even more would hear some music from...
I would look silly with it now-at my Age !!!
I would say more Rod Stewart,when he was with the Faces(circa `72).
