I don't like this "global village" thing either,everywhere is too much the same now,same shops in every high street,same food in every country,not so many regional variations as there were,why bother travelling if its the same when you get there?.
On a more encouraging note I remember that you once asked about some brogue boots made by Loake for Herring shoes,I have recently bought a pair of Herring Hawkshead boots (made by Loake ) and I am very pleased with them,they are in pebbled grain leather not everyones choice but I think that it looks good polished up.

Fantastic thread that I have thoroughly enjoyed but not really had confidence to join in with, so, sorry for lurking around.

Suddenly I've got an in! Football and shoes, I was around when Chelsea, M Utd, Leeds, Hammers et al came to Baseball Ground and we thought we could take em on. You've reminded me of the fact that you could never be sure that you were stood next to someone from you're own parish, particularly when you double-taked because that group of lads were sharper than anyone else in the home end.

We (I) were late with FPs. White or black was our colour for obvious reasons. I'm now 49 and first was at Derby aged 7, I got the inside track as my dad worked for the Rams so we used to sit behind the bench. In the infamous Franny Lee v Hunter brawl incident I'm on the you tube vid, I don't remember but me old man tells me it kicked off again in the tunnel.

I tried at playing the game, failed. But joined the lads and had a fantastic time on away days following the Rams. Couple of stand out memories, we all went to Grimsby as Vicar casuals in a convoy of white transits. We were stopped outside Cleeethorpes and aprox 80 of us marched to the ground blessing all as we went. To ther one being hammered in Leicester caught in a small pub by Leicester fans asking us what the time was? Checking accents. Not a good day.

The build up for us was the back end of Northern, Soul, Tamla etc, the gear (I was so poor I used to wear my dad's mustard yellow Harrington) boots brogues etc.

Halcyon days, fondly remembered, thanks.

Bought these brogues a month ago Cheaney for Herring. Took me back and love wearing em.

To be honest, what I learned back then has never left me. I still love my clothes, watches, shoes and music and probably makes up for a fair OCD diagnosis!

So, I suppose that's me, hope you don't mind me dropping in.

Best,

Cleav

Hello Cleav, welcome aboard, football related disorder and tidy looking heavy brogues makes your first post a good one IMO.

In other happy news groups in Ukraine are openly calling themselves "Hundreds" as in you know the Black Hundreds who committed pogroms of workers', Jews and anyone else they took a disliking to. A forerunner to the fascists. 

I could talk for hours on this subject, but it would be sailing too close to forbidden territory on this thread.

Good to see the ordinary white shirt and tie - I would have put this earlier than 70/71





Nice to Girls,as they were really like.



I had a pair of Petrol Blue Mohair Trousers(similar) to the one on the right.Looking at the shape of his Shoes-they are Solatios.

Welcome Cleav.

Went to the Baseball Ground(before they pulled it down).Liked the atmosphere-even though it was closed.It reminded me of the old Boleyn Ground.


Liked the Strides you were wearing with the Brogues.A sort of "Country Gent" Style.

Liked the Stocking hanging from the Car Aerial-in the first picture. smile.gif

Thanks. Yeah was a great atmosphere and certainly very like the Boleyn. Best night there for me was Derby v Real Madrid European cup win, my hero Charlie George was on fire.

Lots of these new grounds lack soul, no passion in concrete for me!

Strides were from next, starting to get a little warm for em!

Nice to be here, thanks again.

Agree about the date on that one Brownie, I thought that when I first saw it - V neck, 'any white shirt' , tie and

jeans, it's got to be '68 hasn't it? Bob or Buttons will tell us the month too. biggrin.gif

There's a picture of M-o-M wearing similar gear, he's at a demo. carrying a placard I think.

Hello Cleav, welcome mate.
