I was lucky enough to come across this very,very nice original 1960s Ben Sherman in A1 brand new condition.In a totally different class to todays Bennies but sadly in a size 14.5 collar so clearly no good to a bigger chap like me.I ended up selling it but I hope I come across another one one day...

Back to the new Baractuta owners. Ignore the outrageous prices for the moment (almost double the price, just for a (long overdue) better-quality zip and new 'technical' lining (whatever that means).

 

There's a PDF file that you can download from the new site (here: http://www.baracuta.com/history.html ). Does anyone recognise one of the people on page 13? satisfied.gif

Cant say ive ever heard the term perry boy, sounds made up to me or some sort of marketing hype? bonehead was always a term used for someone who was a bit of a div down our way, bonehead ,thickhead, numbskull etc.

 Brookes Bros shirts are nice, i got married last year in one and it got the thumbs up from the wife, that will do for i

Revisionist history is all around us.Thanks for setting me straight.That is why we are here, old and young, to find out the truth.One myth dispelled was that Skinheads wore nylon jackets with collar and snaps(instead of a zipper) I've learned from this thread that those jackets(I have one.They are also known now as Bolli jackets.Bolli being Belle and Sebastian fans) were a revival item and not worn by the Originals.In the late 70's I was 12,13 and into Mod/2 tone.We wore Lacoste as they were everywhere.A little later I had some Mod friends who had all the British versions.Don't know how or where they got them.They were very smart Mod revivalists.And the vintage clothes shops(in Boston)were fantastic.One was a wearhouse crammed with great stuff.Sad to see those days gone.Happy to have been part of it. Botolph could probably comment on the situation in Boston now as it's been so many years since I left there.It was one of the great underground music and subculture scenes mid 70's to early 90's.

I know a fella named Ian Hough("huff") from the Merseyside area who grew up with other lads that claim to have been "Perry Boys". His book is called the same. They were an outgrowth of a mixture of subcultures, though they seem to have been influenced mostly by the Mod revival and early on called themselves mods for lack of a better term. They're saying that they're the progenitors of the unnamed youth cult dubbed "casuals" by the media.
The whole "Perry Boys" name had to do with the idea that, at least in their area, they were the first new cult to unbutton the top button of their Fred Perrys, and have an identifiable "look".

Not sure if the book is still in print but it was popular with casuals/dressers.

Perry Boys by Ian Hough.

Interesting Posts about Shirts.I look on the Ivy League Clothes Sites to see what is about.

Even closer to the toe, so more like this then?:



Picture comes from a british book from 1964 about US/Ivy style shoes.
