Its funny this thing with the skinhead suit lapels, I thought the skinhead suit had narrow lapels, my did.. and everyone around our way...I mean the skinhead suit would somewhat look ..well not like a skinhead suit, looking at Pressure Drops pic of his brother in law the jacket looks off the peg,
If you look at any pics of originals in suits the lapels are narrow...but of course their will be someone with a wider lapel probably bought off the peg somewhere..fcuk knows.

Wider Lapels was more later 70s...bit like Jason King,biggrin.gif...

Do you remember before the lapels went massive,that there was a lapel style where the top angle of the "notch" was rounded ?..it wasn't a fashion that lasted long.

Yes that's the ones.

I was just looking at some stills from What ever happened to the likely lads,some good pictures of early 70s fashions,Rodney Bewes lapels are pretty big,but pictures of James Bolam in a smart mac and a Harrington.

Rodney Bewes with round collar shirts and a plain tank top ( with the round neck ).

The whole thing with the Bob and Terry characters and their differing fashions was quite deliberate. It was something like 6 or 7 years after the original Likely Lads series. In the original Bob and Terry dressed very similar. In the follow up, Terry had just got out of the services and was essentially the same boozy 60s geezer he was when he joined up. Bob had moved on with the times and (terrible) fashions, and bought into the whole upwardly-mobile, social-climber bit. Terry then turned up like the ghost of Christmas past, a kind of anachronistic 60s throw-back. In the 70s, Terry was seen as an old fashioned Joke. Forty years on, it's now Bob that looks like the joke out of the two of them.

I agree with most of that except that Bob came across as a bumped up full of himself arse licking twat ( and badly dressed ) his wife was worse.

Check through some of the images ( maybe the film as well ) and Terry does have some tidy clobber.

Er... that's partly my point, I did mention that Gareth wasn't a skinhead, so I'm not trying to suggest that some skinheads deliberately chose wider lapels (groan, we'll be getting into the Levi jacket debate again shog[1].gif) just thought it an interesting pic showing some of the 'crossover' fashion.

Cant wait to get this made up. How could I pass on this cloth?



Doing three button, side vents slanted pockets and ticket pocket. I have enough for a three piece so I am doing a vest. I think I will wear it as a two piece mostly though, it may be a bit much even for me with the vest.....or it may just look amazing!

I am very excited.

Its a great pic regardless, With us lot we all used the same Tailor ..The Bespoke Skinhead suit was a three button, narrow lapels, Three pockets all flapped at a angle, The jacket was long..longer than the Mod suit, It would have a single rear vent..longer the better, The jacket would be well waisted, and flaring out at the back, The trousers would be parallel, five pocket, the rear and cash pockets would be flapped, the trouser crease would end at the waistband into a dart, Their would be zipped side adjusters.

What worth pointing out the Crombie coat we had made would be the same style as the suit jacket, but obviously longer, narrow lapels, well waisted,with a long single vent at the back,

On the other hand, Bob did wear braces!



(Blimey! I don't remember Thelma looking that fit!)

It's back to that evolution thing again.  The Jason King look that became established in the early 70s was far more 'exaggerated' and jackets were by then two (or one) button.

Straying off topic again, but does anyone remember the tv ad for after-shave which had Jason King walking along, and the voice-over goes "Peter Wyngarde smells..." At that point Wyngarde/King stops, looks at the camera with a shocked expression. Then the voice over says "... great!"
