I wonder if the Inspector was thinking late 60s v late 70s?  The t shirt under a BD was indeed uncommon in the late 60s being one of those Ivy trends that skinheads did not buy into.  However, I have to agree with Buttons that it looks very much like 1969, especially the cut (would have been slimmer by 1979) and the hairstyle (with sideboards / burns), particularly pointing to that conclusion.

@ Mr.K. I was thinking late 60s, but quite surprised by the Ivy style T-shirt under a BD, as several Originals here said it was something they never done. And i'm careful now with black and white pictures that can be tricky to date. Btw i'm surprised if this pic wasn't post before. Have good fun in Nottingham gentlemen !

Skinny braces - oh, yes.

We had a lot of pictures of Football fans arrested, and i'd be surprised if this one wasn't posted before. Late 60s.

Did you notice that a lot of players at the last World cup had razor partings (and unfortunately weird mohicans)?

Clouseau,I am pretty sure that pictures been on here before,its a Manchester utd fan being arrested at Derby county,theres a couple of other pictures of him lashing out a people in the crowd. Razor partings have been in and out of fashion over the years,I think it depends on hair length,if its too short you cant brush a parting in.

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

That list reminded me of a strange shirt I saw today a Baracuta made by Van Heusen in Hong Kong but it was definitely vintage It was rather stained so I passed on it but I probably should have got it as it was only a dollar ever saw such a variation?

A bit of a 50s-throwback lady on a Lammy, mid-60s NYC.(Nice pins though. Mari Wilson on a bad hair day ?)

NYPD issue Lambrettas 1970s. You know your getting old, when police officers and bus drivers start to look a bit too young.

Some vintage Sears and Roebuck gear currently for sale on US ebay. Some NOS, some hardly-worn, some right manky and in need of a damn good scrub. Here's a few samples in the $25 and under. (Us UK residents don't pay any import duty on anything under $25.60/£15)

Interesting for the insight to Ian Levine,apart from that all was pretty much a rehash of previous material it seemed.Was that Long John Baldry outside the Wheel BTW ?

Agree with Levines comments regarding the scene and how it should continue with sharp, young blood and not old farts like myself.

Found a bloke on facebook by absolute chance, thought he was someone else, we have a mutal friend in common but when I clicked on his profile was suprised to see a load of really good photos from 68-70. Ive invited him on here to maybe talk about them or share his experience of the era but we'll see. Big Thanks to him for emailing these to me and letting me share them - I think weve had one or two before but I certainly havent seen them all.
