what else do we need to prove that these pix are original???? wink.gif

We do what any decent researcher does - ASK the photographer/publisher. The end.

More convincing. It would take some organising to 'stage' that.

Specific colors of specific clothes has been mentioned (jungle greens, stone Sta-prest, brown/ox blood/black boots) ....but I'd like to hear more of how an outfit was put together if it pleases all.

For example...if you wore let's say black boots with a pair of stone Sta-Prest...were there certain color combinations of shirt, sweater vest/or braces, and Harrington/monkey jacket/whatever type of 'overcoat'....that made you feel especially smart? Or was that thinking too much into it?

 

Good Question Spirit of 89, and welcome.

 

Back in 1969/71 in our area (Manchester, North West of England) there evolved a 'uniform' look which consisted of  Denim Jacket and Jeans (Almost exclusively Levi or Wrangler with the odd Lee Rider Jeans thrown in). Initially black boots were mostly worn but later Cherry Red Doc Martens became by far the most popular. If you deviated much from this look you weren't accepted as the real deal.The variety came with the colour of the shirts and sleeveless pullovers. This was not the case in other parts of the country where a much less rigid dress code was to be found.

 

Personally I would wear things that didn't clash - i.e. Royal blue sleeveless pullover with blue Gingham shirt, Maroon with Maroon/Sky/White Brutus, Grey with Black White Ben Sherman etc. I tended to wear off white Sta-prest with brown brogues, but they also looked good with Cherry Red Docs (better than black boots with light sta-prest IMHO) Sta-prest with denim jacket was a good look I  always thought and I'll wear a similar combination to this day. When Harringtons first came in nearly everybody wore black. Again with two tone trousers (tonics) I always wore a top to match, colour wise e.g Green/gold two tones with green sweater and green shirt.

 

Today you have much more range of styles and colours available and I would say to you what I said to McDermott - wear what feels right to you and what you feel good in, as you can see from photos and comments on this site, really there are no rules.

Apart from saying I have never had one, I am not going to enter into the tattoo debate in case I say things I shall regret. But I will put up this recent link to the Sartorialist http://www.thesartorialist.com/photos/on-the-street-27th-st-new-york-4/ A thing of beauty or a waste of a beautiful girl?

I didn't know that Brownie?It does make sense now though,as I have mentioned before,I recall lot of the Birmingham lads wearing yellow ones when I hadn't seen them anywhere else.We all had Black,Navy and Green at the time.The Birmingham lot could be quite smart and were a bit ahead of us.

Thanks for the input on my color schemes question Royton. Since most of the pics from the original days are b/w I've been curious. Not so much as a way to gauge my own styling but just in general. I tend to favor comfort/versatility/practicality over the 'details'...so I'll probably be a 'scruffy cunt' til I'm old and grey tongue.gif
As to the girl in the pic Knightley....I have to agree with EK about that particular photo. I don't know if its the lighting/angle of the photo but it makes her face look kinda off-color and 'sickly' (for lack of a better term). I don't mind her tattoos at all. My wife is heavily tattooed and I think that they can look good on women and men equally. But I understand that many find it 'trashy' and everyone is welcome to their opinions. The only time it bothers me is when I have male customers who get tattooed and then say that they don't want their spouse/girlfriend/whatever to. It's a stupid double-standard IMO.
