Ed Vaughan, In the Chelsea picture the lad on the right has a patch on his jeans,a bloke i work with was only saying the other day about those patches that were done on the inside of the jeans,later on i used to keep old jeans and used the back pockets for patches..... and probably looked pretty stupid .A couple of people are wearing those card hats/head band things that one of the newspapers used to give away on cup final day.
I was rarely in jeans between 1970-71 as I preferred a decent pair of strides: sta-prest, toniks, PoW etc - but jeans were a must for work as, being in 'the print', decent clobber could easily get ruined.
Patches always on the inside, when required.
In the same vein, d'you remember lads with leather-faced turn-ups and on pockets of jeans?
Or did I imagine it?
