That's a good looking cardigan Basset. Where did you get it? I had a similar one, in grey, from Next about 5 years ago but my older cousins (we are talking 60 years +  and ex-mods from early '60's London) took the micky out of me for looking like an old man.The problem was the colour not the style.

I dont think Clarence has ever been repeated over here but I managed to get the dvd of the 6 part series on Ebay.  Porridge and Clarence really showed off the remarkable talent of Mr Barker

Bought, IIRC, from Justins, in the Market Centre. (Underground Market, Market Street.)

Bought most of my clobber from there. (Ivors was in the same spot but their gear was just... well, 'cheaper - and looked it.)

New Brown Street had more 'boutiques', but they were more for your late-teens/early twenties fellas.

(Hurley's Sports, near the Dolphin in Piccadilly was good for FPs and Slazengers, though.)

That and the Watneys Red Barrel-Party 7s.Ah!!!! those were the good old days!!!!smile.gif

Thanks Ed,I just never saw Gold coloured Sta Prest.

As has been said before,they were regarded as "old mens Cardigans" in the 60s.My Mum bought out some of my Dads(as a Joke) once.The trouble was,he was bigger than me-so I would have drowned in them.smile.gif

Not the best of pictures - its all I could find at the minute, but I've got some 60s gold coloured Levi sta press (well, you could just call them mustard!)
Been wearing them for over 20 years - probably the best Levi sta press I've ever had.

I seem to be getting mixed messages on the cardigan front - they were 'old men's wear' but everyone still had one. They pop up in many many old pictures so were obviously popular. What denoted it as 'old man'? Was it the weight? Buttons? Style? Colour? or a bit of everything?
And I do agree - pockets is best!

At the time I don't think we thought of cardigans as 'old men's wear' ( that came later) but we did dress 'conservatively' compared to the hippys. Probably the colour of the knitwear was important but I don't remember. That allowed us to wear some of our clothes at school without getting banned by the headmaster. As Aces said we dressed for the seasons and a cardigan,or other knitwear, was a handy accessory. My parents were pleased with the way me and my mates dressed. They didn't know the half of it. We were reacting against the 'peace and love' kids who dressed badly. We wanted to look smart.

They were originally only bought in Gentlemens" Outfitters,then they were stocked by "our Shops".If you look at the Advertisements of the late 50s and 60s,they were shown being worn by Middle Aged Men who were mostly Pipe Smokers.As I said,I only got one.My favourite was the finer Wool Cardigans with Pockets.Right about the "Make War Not Peace" Brigade.

Now I remember Mustard,could not envisaged Gold Sta Prest though.

Listening to a CD that came with "Uncut" Mag.It Showcases a few of the newer Bands.A lot of them have gone back to the 60s,for inspiration.Even the first Track is a rework of "Hey Mr.Tambourine Man".Ironically,it is called "Strange Brew"-one of Cream`s finest.I actually bought the Mag for the Story of the Marquee and the Who-and which Clubs were popular in the 60s.Remember some of them,some I was not allowed in,"Bag O`Nails","Scotch Of St.James"and "The Speakeasy".This was where the "Kings Road" Set would go.Not my Scene-even during the Mod years.smile.gif
