White labcoats, or what we knew as "butcher coats"*, (but quite distinct from macs) were fairly common gear on football terraces in the Later Bootboy Period (this is starting to sound like geology smile.gif). Round about the time of wider, baggier denims worn with DMs: from memory about 1975 - 1978. The white colour allowed the wearer to customise the coat with their own "artwork": team and player names, club crests, slogans, general threats of impending violence, abuse of rivals etc. usually worked up in coloured felt pen. They could vary between fairly impressive artwork almost like tattoo art at one end of the spectrum and pretty scruffy scribbles at the other.

 

* think of a white version of the warehouseman's coat that Ronnie Barker wears as Arkwright in "Open All Hours". (Glad to hear you've got into that, it's absolutely classic.)

Thanks for the info elwood.Remember seeing a few blokes in old Football footage and wondered what they was up to(thought they was butchers just off work)Watched "Going Straight" Now watching "Clarence" "Two Ronnies" will be next.

We have butchers coats here in the US Elwood, but wearing them to sporting events has never been a thing. Clever and I imagine they got the point across!happy.gif

Beat me to it Bassett,M&S do great Cardigans-saw some Sleeveless (with Pockets the other day).Not my size though.Also their 3 Button Merino Wool Polo Jumpers are comfortable to wear(similar to John Smedleys-but half the Price).I know it is more Mod than Skinhead.smile.gif

This was a very short Fad,in the early 70s-did not last long though.


Back in the 60s,loved wearing Sleeveless Pullovers.I had them in a variety of Colours.Also the Thin Lambswool Jumpers were good with Jeans or Cords.I only had one thick Chunky Cardigan(with the old Football Style Buttons on),in Rust Colour I think.I was lucky to pick up a couple of Sleeveless Chunky Cardigans(Deadstock) about a year ago-in Navy and Wine.I think they look alright with Trousers or Jeans.Never really caught on in the 60s though.smile.gif
