Do you know this company Clousseau? Next time I am in Paris I plan to pay them a visit.They have about a dozen pairs i wouldn't mind owning if they are as good as they look !

I don't know them, and some of their shoes looks good. But if i had to buy some french made tassel loafers, i would be tempted by APC.

I have a pair of those - posted =- without tassels.

Cut them off around 15 years ago - currently lying in a garage I own.

One day... satisfied.gif

Hi Ladybird, and welcome.

There is at least one major contributor to this thread - Little Queenie - and she'll be around to say hello at some point, I've no doubt.

This thread is in the men's clothing section, but as we're gathering information for a book, we're interested in female fashion from back in 'our' day too, so input from anyone with an interest is always welcome.

I know MOM post a pic of loafers, a few hundred pages ago, but it seems we didn't really explore this subject yet...

I had my first pair early in 1970. I bought them with my first wage packet from the Parks Department, London Borough of Bromley. They were from the Squire Shop in Brewer St, Soho. They were black and very, very plain; there was no bar or anything across the tongue, just a bare apron and a tassle.

Hope not a re-post.

I think we've seen it before, but it doesn't hurt to have another look smile.gif

Thank you for the welcomes, and hello all.

I don't recognise that at all! frown.gif

Hi everyone.

I'm glad to say I have some more time I can dedicate to the book. I am going to go back to the last point in the thread where I was gathering information and work forward. I think I'm going to need a total re-think about chapters etc.

I'm wondering whether to find some way of starting a separate, private blog in order to discuss work-in-progress on the book, somewhere where the 'firm' and the 'back-up' can sort out issues which would be boring or repetitive on here - for example, copyright issues relating to photos which have already appeared (several times) on the thread. Anybody think that would be a good/bad idea?

Also, does anyone recall definitely whether we had decided to call the book 'Walk Proud' or 'Walking Proud'?

I thought 'Walk Proud' Paul, but can't be sure: that's the working title on the last lot of work we did, many moons ago! Yes, to the private blog / messaging thing - no need to air our unfinished laundry in public!

I presume you mean this one cerneabbas?It looks to be a start up,so in my mind it's a crapshoot.You might get lucky and like what you get or you could be tossing it in the Garbage.There's hundreds of companies both big and small doing selvage denim now.In my opinion th most important thing is the FIT.That's a very personal thing.Denim manufacturere have gravitated to "Low Rise" styles over the years (even companies producing "Vintage" styles) because thats what sells.It's a young mans game.It's mostly the over 45's who want "High Rise" and loose/relaxed fit like the 50's - 60's cuts.

It looks like they only offer two cuts which is unlikely that they will fit everyone "like a Glove" as they state as being the goal.They also do not offer the "Back Rise" measurement which can vary greatly in jeans and define the fit.

Good idea for private blog or whatever is needed and shout for any help

 

Saw this on "bookseekers agency" web page

 Skinheads from 1969 in their own words

This exciting project is bringing together people who were 'there' in the UK in the late 1960s. Will they reinforce the stereotype or blow it to kingdom come? What was it all about - working class pride, the tail end of the mods, more than just boots and braces?

We're looking for more contributors, so if you were young at that time, get in touch!

The Flager and the Whitehall look close to ones I had.The Flager would have had another Loop at the front of the boot to help pull it on,and a more pronounced ridge running down the center of the vamp.That's a very good price in my opinion,but I know nothing of the shop or the real quality? Here's a photo of the best ones I've managed to find on the web:

Gsvs5. Thanks for the info about the jeans,i havent worn jeans for many years,seeing some of the pictures on here made me think about buying some but it looks like a (very expensive) minefield so i think i will leave it alone.I have been intrigued by the Bexley shoes,they have a shop in Paris so next time i am there i will have a look.

Good news about the "Book" (it's got to be a huge amount of work,I wouldn't attempt a book) The private blog is a good idea.As I've posted before,I have the photos on my computer as Back -Up in the event of a disaster.

When it comes to Denim Ive always been crap. 26.5'' thighs but a 34/35 waist wouldnt help...Too much squatting ! facepalm.gif

That said I bought a pair recently i was very impressed with for the price. The Critera was Dark unwashed raw denim, Selvedge, High rise, a Straight cut and with slightly wider wider legs/bottom eg. No taper then modern 'repro brands.'

 

I went for these :

http://www.freddiesofpinewood.co.uk/product/36-men%27s-1950%27s-jeans

 

Freddies of Pinewood do that rockabilly clothing thats caught on so much recently. You know, Fat girls with lots of tattoos. ;) It seems to be the last place to look but....

In saying that these are surprisingly good. On a standard build they would look a bit off, but if like myself you have bigger legs but a smaller waist they are brilliant, The rise sits comfty a 1'' or so below my belly button, 18'' bottoms on a 34W. Nice Heavy selvedge denim. I will post picks when i get chance, but for a 50's Style Jean they are not that far off from a 70's style really. The downside is the back pockets, which seem to sit lower down on the Arse then they should, which i suppose is a 50's thing, but for knocking around in they have done it.. Like Many i would love to splash out on the Big E originals etc, but sometimes you have to admit defeat and go for the nearest you can thatll fit....
