Ron Cobb 1966, Hitchin, Hertfordshire.
I don't know if it was particularly a Midlands/Northern thing,but around '68 it was very common.Trimmed front pockets,Elbow patches on Shetland Jumpers was very popular with both sexes.Having said that,this photo is the first time I recall seeing the hem of jeans trimmed like that,and the fact that they show so little signs of wear ?
I've not seen the original (bottom) photo before. But, I bet the story behind that photo was twenty times more relevant to this forum, than anything 'Allen' had ever written.
