No, seriously, given the right outfit and the attitude well-struck, it could look pretty cool. Not that I think I or the other bloke quite pulled it off in either of the two pics. A hand placed palm-outward in the back pocket of Levis made you stand with your back fairly straight.

I've worn wingtips before (Allen Edmonds and such) but never with anything but a traditional leather dress sole.
Oh dear - no, no and most definitely... NO! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

At least it was better than the other pose- the Thumb stuck into the rear Jean Pocket. Looked Yobbish. smile.gif

I agree with what you said about tweeds and that "Gatsby" thing,I remember that The Sting seemed to be a bit of an influence on styles then,but that was 73 or 74 ?,you are right about some interesting tweeds then,I would wear a tweed overcoat now if I saw a nice one.

My recollection of those "wet look" boots you mention, cerneabbas, that pulled up like socks was of them often being worn with hot pants - which would put it in 1971, "Ride a White Swan" and all that. But, as you say, not worn by skinhead girls. (Can't say myself whether those are boots or socks in that photo.)

Never saw tweed around in the classic 1969-1971 period: other than teachers' jackets (enough said perhaps as to why it had little appeal). This has, however, unfortunately unleashed the previously lost memory of my own pair of tweedy "bags" in late 74 or 75, when the style was really long gone. I'll probably struggle to forget them again now.

elwood,I agree those boots were worn with hot pants about then  ( I also remember hot pants with long white socks and white plimsolls )...

I read Chris Browns book Booted and Suited recently and he mentions running vests being worn as tank tops,now I remember this but I cant say a definite time,I am guessing late 71 / early 72 ( no earlier than that,maybe a bit later )..there was a sports type shop in Bristol where you could get letters / numbers put on ( like the kids have names put on their football shirts now) it was the area postcode that we had put on,did you see this in Manchester ? it was only a short lived fashion here but I do remember it because although we went to school in Henbury ( and were mates with Henbury lads and later travelled to away games on their coach ) we were from Westbury and our area postcode was different,we would also wear a black vest with red trim because that was the colours of Westbury junior schools football kit,we were determined to have our own identity.

I never saw that in my area, cerneabbas; maybe another local fashion.

I've always fancied a Tweed 'Hacking Jacket'. They've got three-buttons and a ticket pocket, but the lapels, even though high up, were a bit too wide. A bit too similar to huntsman's pinks for my liking, and therefore not modern (well, about as modern as I get). I've begun to appreatiate Tweed as a fabric as I get on in years, but definitely Donegal over Harris. Still not too sure though. A tad too heavy and itchy for my liking.

Relco (not my favourite schmatte merchant) has a Tweed-style Sta-Prest. It looks more like a multi-colour Dogtooth/Houndstooth than actual Tweed. Interesting non the less.

I just wish Relco's stitching was up to keeping my Aris' from busting out of the seat.Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

Always liked Tweed or Herringbone.Through the mid 60s I had both(Shirts,Trousers or Jackets).In the 70s it was a heavier Trouser I favoured-in both.Seen some good Overcoats but not in my size(TK Maxx).

Saw some good Tweed Jackets when I went down Brick Lane,some with the Slanted Pockets(plus Ticket Pockets) and the more conservative ones.Did not really have a look at sizes,as my Missus was in tow-no Clothes,no Records!!!smile.gif
Have seen the Hacking Jacket when been to Dos(I believe Lasttye has one).Very smart.

I liked the Relco Trousers Inks,but find them too narrow at the bottom,for my liking.

From 'Ask Andy About Clothes' -

'There was a small outcropping of Sharpies in Glasgow, basically a sub group of smooths but with longer hair again and most outstandingly dyed sideburns in bright blue or red. Some of the younger workers in the railway works and corporation sported this look. White jeans were often worn (but not at their work - dirty hard jobs)'


You know what? I believe it too biggrin.gif

An extra inch in leg width would be nice with Relco trousers. I'm lucky enough to have little feet, so they don't look too bad on me. My main gripe is the stitching quality in the seat. I've had trousers that have lasted donkey's without ever splitting up the ar5e. To have a pair split on the first wearing is pretty lousy.
