I did a week's work experience, sorting out newspapers in a back room in Sunderland. They had a whip round at the end of the week and I got 15 quid (bare in mind I was 15 and it was 1986). Put that with some saved up dinner monies (I was very skinny then!) and bought a late 60's Wrangler denim jacket from Flip (Vintage American clothing). Still got it now (although its a bit snug).

Okay, maybe a bit extreme but I rarely, if ever, bought something I didn't like/love.

Buying clothes as a schoolboy, then an apprentice, took so much buying - not to mention the piss-take if you got it wrong - i'd wear shop windows out drooling over what my next purchase would be.

No credit cards for us boys - and girls - back in the day. nod[1].gif

The Specials has always been a favourite of mine. One of their songs is even in my sig...Man at C&A. Because last year I was wandering around C&A in Beijing, and that song just kept on going through my head.

Not that I'm of the original school, but here's a johnny-come-lately's choices:

Sta-prest: Navy
Shirt: s/s sky blue J Press pinpoint oxford buttondown
Jacket: Brown Baracuta

The sky/navy combo probably stems from my 8 years of parochial school. shog[1].gif

I will be the first to admit that i am a little wet behind the (y)ears. My current favorite 3:
1. One True Saxon selvedge limited jeans (85/120). I also have (95/120) but the wife put them in the dryer and they've never been the same since!
2. BS white, navy & sky blue, maroon check.
3. Royal blue G9 baracuta.

Posted by Royton Boy - Here's a little poser for everyone -

What did you spend your first weeks wages on?In the summer of 1971 I started work in a Marine engineers. I was paid £10 per week. With National Insurance taken out I was left with about £9.50, which I was allowed to keep as it was my first wage packet.

That Saturday I went to Disclands in Oldham and bought Tamla Motown Chartbusters Volumes 1 and 3. (We already had Volumes 2 and 4) They cost £2.25 each so that was almost half my wages on two L.Ps!

 

 

 

 

 

Discland, Golden Disc, Javelin records, ahh happy days Royton boy !  Add to that 2/3 record stalls on the market. That was just in Oldham.

 

Visiting your local record shops was a social experience.

SSB - I bought Chartbusters Vol. 7 from Javelin Records. I was served by a girl of about my age (16/17) When I got home I discovered 2 copies of the disc in the sleeve. The general consensus among my mates was that she must done it on purpose 'cos she fancied me! Of course, being the shy, retiring type, I didn't believe it and never went back to find out.

 

I haven't been to Oldham town centre for decades - I wonder, are those little arcades still there?

The Bikes remind me of the"Angels",I see they were dishing out their form of "stewardship"-at the Pop Festival.About 5:09 into the Programme there was a Guy, who was sat down,amongst the "Hairies"-with a Suit Jacket on.This would have been the "Look" we had,in `71.smile.gif
