Last time I went to Millwall we ended up having a drink in Limehouse,there was a load of Millwall in there and the Isle of Dogs had plenty of Millwall back then,I think there was a tunnel under the river near there ?

You're thinking about the foot-tunnel between the Isle of Dogs and Greenwich. I walked through that a number of times when I lived in London.

Was wondering about the live music scene I guess maybe a bit before 69 but The R & B and soul live scene in the sixties in the UK seems like it was amazing.  Names like Geno Washington, Jimmy James, Herbie Goins, Georgie Fame, Alan Brown Set and I even like the Alan Price Set.

 

Any of you originals see any of these acts?  Did skinheads follow around any live acts or was it pretty much strictly dancehalls and DJs?

 

BTW speaking of Jimmy James, great clip here  from Youtube of his band when they were playing more ska related stuff.  Anyone know what club this might be?

 

Jimmy James & The Vagabonds (dir. Peter Whitehead)

 

This sounds like a great Geno Washington gig. 

 

Geno Washington & the Ram Jam Band - Que Sera Sera

He reminisces about the old days on Eddie Pillar’s podcast here:

My mission was to get a hat like Johnny Boy from Mean Streets. I ended up with more of a Harry Worth look.

I remember seeing skinheads wearing kiss me quick  hats a similar shape to your hat,about 1970 in Weymouth and Weston.

I was going to mention Harry Worth when you put the pictures of your hat up,but I guessed that you wouldn't appreciate it.

I remember that in the 60s most blokes seemed to wear a hat,I think that it changed because of long hair becoming popular ( not with me though ).

Funny that people are making comments about the way you and Basset dress,that would get on my t1ts.

So many great actors with style in the sixties. For the "Continental look" i would add Alain Delon, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Maurice Ronet, Marcello Mastroianni And Vittorio Gassman...

 

That is a great list, thanks.  I would add:

  Gian Maria Volonté

Check out this clip from a movie that won the Oscar in 1970 for best foriegn film, actually have seen this movie - very funny but check out the clothing – even the slobby guys look sharp, good fitting suits and simple white shirts.

I will see if I can get a Name,if not go to Ebay.I bought a Black Polka Dot one and a Wine coloured one-they are quite cheap(all you have to do is clip it together-after you have wound round the Ribbon).


Geno was always my favourite(saw him a few times during the 60s).Jimmy James I saw at the Marquee-around `67/`68.Good times.

Could be the Whiskey A Go Go in Wardour Street-certainly not the Marquee.This is in regards to Stingy Brim`s question-regarding the Jimmy James Gig.

To be honest,the Suits look older than `70(maybe early 60s-going by the Cut etc.)

Merc still does a 3b FP style polo to the old standards, but it's not branded FP now. No logo on this one, and that's OK, IMO. Merc does a (very) few "not so bad" items, and that's one of them.

About Japanese made FP, i've got a 2b made to the old standards with a small collar. Not bad, a nice cut, and the cotton is very thick.

But the Italian ones are really good, got a very nice cardy, very detailed. Some FP made in UK are still good too, but expensive of course.

I was in London yesterday and noted an increasing trend towards a greater formality with a few gents sporting very nice raincoats.

 

It always makes me smile, though when people seem to go straight from summer clothes to winter.  There were lots of thick scarves and even overcoats in evidence and it was about 18 degrees!

Interesting follow up .

Some of those trousers and jeans look a bit short. I didnt realise they wore them that short in those days. Always believed and remembered them being more subtle.

Great clip, always nice to see how some of the originals that we have all seen in film have turned out.
