Just came across it on the Chinese video site, Tudou.
Levi's makes thick "shrink to fit" raw 501 made in Mexico for cheap. Those are light/sky blue, i own a pair and really like the color (special, i know, but the other colors, except black & classic blue, are worse!), quite original. They become (just) a little darker when they have shrink.
After a good bath , they fit perfectly... (btw they are of a huge size on this picture, found on eBay)
Thanks browniecj.So,some older kids who were Mods introduced you?Was there a mutual appreciation that was music based.Did you like the same music as these older folks and thought"These are my People" Sirryacus asks a good question above.Where did the Beatniks fit into this scene? What were your(or the Mods) impressions of the beatniks.What about the California Surfing scene across the pond(Beach Boys,Dick Dale,Jan and Dean)
