Interesting in reading Bryan`s Story(about a Smooth in West London).Never realised that Brutus Check Shirts were still being worn in `74.It goes back to a question I asked(many pages ago),were there Suedeheads etc.still buying Two Tone Mohair Suits in the `71/`72.I had watched "Steptoe And Son - Rides Again"Film and in it they go past a Menswear Shop with full priced Suits in the Window.Interesting read that.
I noticed the Brutus check shirt too,was it an undone button down ? or a pointed collar.
I know that Brutus made round collar shirts,but the demise of the button down must have hit them and Ben Sherman hard ( and Jaytex ).
I remember around then cheese cloth shirts being worn here for a very short time.
That single stripe Fred Perry in the Newcastle lads photo is the first time that I can remember seeing one,interesting to see if they have ever remade them over the years.
