I always thought it was electricians tape, but you could be right about Velcro. At least his Mum could wash it without fear that way ;)

I've now seen a couple of alternate shots from the same photo shoot. Yeah, looks like leccy tape in those. Wouldn't have lasted 10 minutes.

Shoulda used Velcro.

Unlike now,you had Haberdashery Shops in most High Streets.My Mum was always buying stuff from them.I wonder how many Mums have got a Sewing Box now,in this throwaway Society?You could buy black cotton material that could be ironed onto T-Shirts etc.Electrical Tape was expensive and not widely bought(only in Trade Shops),so the average Teenager would not have got it - and it did not last long in a hot Club.smile.gif

Having been away for a little while with limited internet access, have just been catching up.

Not wanting to fan any flames around Mr. Elms and his works but I have to say I enjoyed "The Way We Wore", regardless of any scepticism about the authenticity of his recollections. It set me remembering just where my tastes/ prejudices in clothing came from and when I started wondering whether and where I might find those Royal brogues these days, my internet searches eventually brought me to this thread ...

Not a very seasonal photo but I don't think it's been on here before. Lifted from a splendid blog, gotnotgot, (which I recommend to anyone who remembers football before the Premier League) this is captioned "suedehead in the snow" and it brings the period back for me in so many ways. No details of when or where - so over to our usual forensic experts - but that red & black scarf (correctly tied) could be for my own team's away colours ...

Hello all. First let me appologise if I'm not posting right.  I could only figure out how to "Reply"

 

 I've been perusing this forum for a good while now and just worked up the courage to post something.

 

As way of introduction I've been doing the skinhead thing for 5 or 6 years and just now after being fed up with being a crusty punk.:embar:

Finally have a bit extra pocket money for some proper clobber.  As my user name suggests.....

 

I was wondering about trouser length.  Was thinking about getting some sewn in turn ups but how high up the boot should they be?  I have a couple pairs of 8i DM's.  So like up to the 6th eye or???? 

 

Secondly does one wear turn ups with brouges?

 

Thirdly it seems like Fred Perry, Ben Sherman, Brutus Trimfit et al are not too highly regarded here as far as button downs go, any recomendations?  Ive been checking out the DNA shirts and they look amazing...just not too sure about the collar

 

Lastly I live in Berlin anyone know a good tailor here for some alterations? Specifcally I would like some sewn in turn ups on a new pair of Lee 101 Raw selvedge jeans I just got, and need a couple shirts darted at the waist.

 

Thanks for reading and all the amazing posts!

I can have this shirt done up for you many different colors and fabrics. Pattern taken from an original late 60's Ben Sherman, and they are made in Boston, Massachusetts, USA of only vintage or Japanese fabrics. I can do it in Italian cotton but that would cost more. If you're interested, it's $125, free shipping. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ivy-Threads/109664699170630

That is a slim fit with out darts, but can have darts added to make it extra slim fit.

By the way, please remain in business for at least two years. I'll graduate then and will need a nice new shirt. smile.gif
