That advert rings a bell in my memory...I just did a search and I think that it was Tabac ?...I hope that it was because I remember having some for Christmas once and I didn't like it  ( good taste even then,or maybe I could spot a wrong un...).

I didn't know that he made an album in 1970,go on youtube and listen to the Hippie and the Skinhead.....funking weird,he does say peanut when talking about the skinhead.

BTW nice pic of Thelma,she does look fit and I don't remember her that way either.

It seems that the Author was talking about his Manor.The Roaring Twenties(which was established in `61) was most certainly playing Reggae(if I can judge the year right `68)and the Limbo-I know I heard it there.Plus the Ram Jam(in Brixton),Roland Alphonso and Alton Ellis,amongst others appeared there.The Four Aces had a bad reputation so I never went there.

It was an interesting Photo Pressure_Drop.I can remember the Lapels being like that-and they were not all "Off The Peg"-mine certainly was not 3Ply Mohair.I believe we have another example of area variations.The Fashion was starting to change again.please bear in mind,in `69 it had become a uniform so older ones were looking at something slightly different(including widths of Lapels).But certainly a lot of Styles "crossed over" into mainstream.That was the start of the exclusiveness being lost.No offence to your Brother-in Law......smile.gif

No but it featured on Robert Elms on radio London midweek. It is being redeveloped around Dalston and blocks of flats take their names from acts that appeared there - Ocean for Billy Ocean etc.

Has anyone heard the recording of Jason King/Peter Wyngarde reading a letter from a Skinhead Girl..

I put size 10 any brand clearance....mind you that price on the Graftons is a bit misleading IMO.

There is a Gaumont block because it used to be a cinema. No mention of a Slits Towers on Elms show.

The 'Hippie and the Skinhead' was bad enough. The track about rape he did, where he impersonated different races, and how they went about raping is utterly mental.

Those four years between 1966 and 1970 were really something else(in a bad way), when it came to changes in fashion. I don't think there's been another period to match it. Revolver and Sgt.Pepper were only 6 months apart. Look at the punch-able hippy-scum that the Beatles became only 3 years later,on the Abbey Road album photo.

But, since the 1990s, there has been nothing new. The 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s all had a marked fashion sensibility of their own. Some of the fashions and styles were slightly re-worked from bygone-eras with say, the Ted revivial, Skin and Mod revival. Since the 1990s, there hasn't been anything new. No kid from the 2000s  can say, "That's well 90s" without referring to something that owed it's roots to an earlier time. There's no 1990s or 2000s suits, or ties or shirts. It's all rehashed stuff from the past.

Well since the 90s there has been nothing good IMO, the chav look,Burberry check,baseball caps and bling...the ever lower waistband,tracksuits....as you say no specific style.

I went out to M and S today,they have some interesting stuff ( IMO ) a Best of British range including shoes by Cheaney. Loads of hats, trilbys ,fedoras and flat caps in wool ,tweed and waxed cotton..lambswool checked scarves...some brogue belts,I tried on a pure wool "tweed" overcoat,very nice but I need it a bit more fitted.I was thinking that if they did some 3 button suits and blazers they would clean up.

The thing is although M and S stuff is a bit rehashed its also a bit more interesting than the so called fashion end of the high street,just fiddling around with detailing on shirts etc.

I saw this Best of British range, but i think it is quite expensive for M and S stuff. I would prefer to buy directly Cheaneys, that Cheaneys in collaboration with Marks and Sparks. Of course, M and S is OK, but for me, it is now mainly cheap stuff. It used to be better, but a long time ago...

To be honest,I thought the same with the Best of British range it does seem expensive and I think that there are better styles of Cheaney shoes,but at least it gives people some choice.

I think that you have to look at every  M and S item separately,as you say some is cheap ( and not good quality ) but I think that some is still good quality and value for money,check the Sartorial range wool trousers for instance and the all wool overcoat that I tried on today...

The funny thing is that in 1970 there was very little that I would have wanted in M and S ,underwear,socks and lambswool v necks...now I don't rate their underwear,the socks aren't as good quality and I the lambswool v necks seem better from Woolovers...I do like some of their shirts,trousers,coats,belts and scarves now though.
