Good pics Bunty. I think the ones of Del Evans may have come from Jack that Cat was Clean. I put a question up asking about his shoes (some looked like Solatios) but have never had a reply.

At a family get together over the holidays my 96 year old cousin gave me a copy of this. I think I have posted a similar one before but this is a bit clearer. It was the occasion of my parents 20th wedding anniversary in June 1967. I am in emerging skin mode wearing my first MTM suit in navy self herringbone from Burtons I recall, navy v neck in botany wool from M&S, white shirt and striped silk tie in navy, grey and silver (can't recall where the latter two came from).

Very smart Brideshead.Always liked Herringbone(my very first Suit was a Navy Herringbone one-bought by my Dad).When I moved to Guildford ,I tried Burtons and got rejected.I then went down the road to Alexandres`,and never looked back!!smile.gif

This one looks familiar - I remember your family group. You look very smart. I seem to remember having a similar suit in '67, but in brown.

I remember going to the tailor with my dad on a Saturday morning and selecting the cloth myself and being allowed to have some say as to style. You will note my dad's suit in the pic has long lapels and two buttons. Mine had three buttons and a much higher button stance. I was probably still just 14 at the time and looking back it does underline just how much things have changed......

Yes, I did post one earlier that was taken at the same session but I was standing at the back and also the quality (on screen) was not so great. It is probably a better pic though in the flesh.



I recall brown was a popular colour then. My next suit was in a lightish brown.

I suppose these images do underline, as brownie often reminds us, that the Look started emerging much earlier than is often believed. I am not sure but I reckon I started wearing my hair very short in early 1967.

Bit more expensive here at £39.99 but not at all bad so I bought a pair. Off to me tailor on Monday for a tweak or two.

In `67,I got a Beige Suit(with a Bottle Green Lining).I believe this Colour was popular as well as I have seen Pictures of Mods(Twisted Wheel Story),wearing the same Colour.Unfortunately,cannot reproduce the Photo here-as it is fuzzy.But the Suit is there(complete with no.4 Crop).smile.gif
