" One thing I gotta say is if you do wear thin braces you'd better not be fat, nothing more unsightly than an older fat guy still wearing braces for the past 30 years like he was skinny and 19. That's sort of my #1 pet peeve about skinheads, are guys who never evolved their skinhead look they grew up with, with a more age-appropriate city-gent-ified look and therefore end up looking like an odd anachronistic re-creation society, a la Teddy Boys. The basic traditional skinhead/suedehead style is one you can grow old with, but at the same time the look can age you prematurely too, making you look like a stodgy old geezer before you actually are one just as easily as it can make you look like you're having a mid-life crisis if you wear bleachers etc, so it's all about finding a good mix to keep yourself modern and relevant while remaining somewhat faithful to the original style. that's my 2 pence worth."

 

I'm curious about the "making you look like a stodgy old geezer" bit.  Could dyou ellaborate a bit more on that?  I'm feeling like I look more and more like an "old geezer" the more I get into "The Look"

 

EG I recently returned a really nice pair of Weejuns I picked up at TKMax for 30 euro just cause the comments my mates made vis a vi looking like an old fart

 

Cheers

your mates are missing the point - a older man should sport timeless Ivy clobber not fashion .. bet the daft buggers wear trainers and cargo shorts

You can order from me. Send me your measurements, preferred color, preferred fabric (broadcloth or oxford). I'll let you know what I can do for you. I may not be able to get every color in every fabric only because I won't use Chinese fabric. I use Japanese, American, and vintage fabric. Italian cotton costs more but I can get that too.

Thanks Ivy, I'll do it via PM. Much appreciated.

Why would any of us - even the skinny buggers - want to emulate (totally) the styles and clobber of 45-50 years' ago... most wouldn't.

It's about (for me, anyway) retaining an element of the classic style(s) and look of bygone times without looking like I've been bin-diving in some old skips.

'Sharp' and well-turned-out does it for me and, I still get 'spotted' by those that know about the look.

That said, whatever floats your boat and us older fellas have no monopoly of style and fashion, just 'cos we were born early. happy.gif

I've seen some very tidy 'youngsters' squeezed into gear I can only dream of - or remember. biggrin.gif

Nurse - medication time, I believe! shog[1].gif

For those who (still) believe in buying British satisfied.gif here's a fairly comprehensive list.

Not sure if the entire lot can be relied upon, what with the number of far-east exports the rest of the world has taken to its bosom, but you have to start somewhere. biggrin.gif

The Guardian doing it`s usual and missing out on a few Facts.baldy[1].gif

Good to see "British Clothing getting a mention-and as quoted "the Older Man" can be interested.The only problem is the sizes are made for Sparrows.This is what really annoys me,you into any Shop selling Menswear and all you see is the smaller sizes.The larger ones have sold out.A Case in Point,Marks and Spencers had something I was interested in(a Polo Shirt).All Summer it has only small sizes on offer(even online).A week ago,xxxl came in Stock- within a couple of hours they were gone.That is it for the Summer.When you go into Shops with Sales on,it is always the bloody small sizes left.Can`t the Buyers think"Hang on,we are selling larger sizes a lot quicker than the small ones-lets stock more".Do they f*ck.

Older Men are bigger sizes,Grey Fox or whatever you call yourself. smile.gif

Got the same problem here with clothes's big sizes, as i'm rather tall, it's a problem to find something that suits me, well at least with the proper length... The good point, i spend less money on clobber i suppose. 

 

This picture is supposed '69. I'm a bit puzzled about the t-shirt under the BD shirt. It was not too common i think ?

Inspector, judging by (various aspects of the picture plus) the cut of the shirt, I'd say '69 (as opposed to '68 or '70).

(Just look at his) Buttons
