I dated a girl in Guildford and we went to the Guildford Plaza, think it may have been also called The A Train.

Welcome Chris,

 

At this time, would you have described yourselves as 'skinheads'?

Her name was Jan Kemp, she lived on the Belfields estate, had a mate called Pam. To my eternal shame I still have about 2 or 3 records of her I borrowed but never returned. Love to track her down.

I don't think so, maybe a year 2 earlier.

Good photo, McDermott.

I think that might well be at the bottom of Aytoun Street, not far from the Wheel. The building in the background looks to be what was the Manchester Colllege of Commerce (later the Polytechnic and now part of Manchester Metropolitan University I think). Might have been a girl's school you can see behind that but not sure.

Hair looks a bit longer to me than would commonly be later that year (ditto turn-ups). Jacket in foreground looks like cord Wrangler that was everywhere round Manchester 69-70 (including mine).

I remember well the Wrangler Cord jacket too. it was all the rage here a bit later in the 70s.

Even if i was a small kid then, i remember my older brother and his friends wore them. They existed in a range of colors, and i think they had wide lapels. 

I wear cord jacket with jeans regularly. A nice smart casual look.

Yep.

It was Manchester Central Grammar School for Girls... I attended the boys' school up until 1970. (It was a couple of miles away at Belle Vue.)

Turn-ups too big for 1969 and, hair too long - even for 'The Wheel'. But I'm often wrong.

The cord jacket might even be a Levi, IIRC the collar was a wee bit bigger on those.

I had a few cord jackets in 68-69, always Wrangler and with the Blue Bell label.

My denim jackets - two, i think and one was second-hand - were always Levi's though, the Wrangler with its side pockets was never for me.

TBH, I never really like denim jackets - and never with jeans, though I did wear 'em with sta-prest and and Evvaprest trousers.

My memory is better than I thought it was, Ed smile.gif

I think you could be right there. Did Levi cord jackets have the red label near the pocket? Can't see on photo but that doesn't mean much. Definition from average point & shoot camera of the period nowhere near as good as average phone camera these days.

My recollection is that cord jackets were about 90% Wrangler (of which 90% again were the sand colour I had) and denim jackets were more than 90% Levi's.

TBH, I never really like denim jackets - and never with jeans, though I did wear 'em with sta-prest and and Evvaprest trousers.

Plenty of comments on here previously about the "Northern double denim" look biggrin.gif

In fact, when you said "jacket in foreground" i thought of the jackets in the back (French, and Inspecteur, am i not). I just checked the meaning of "foreground"...

So when i spoke of my recollections of Wrangler cord jackets, i didn't mean a cord jacket wit a denim jacket cut.

It's true it's difficult to see on this picture if the jackets three of the lads in the back are wearing are cord or not. But anyway Wrangler made one with that traditional shape (and big lapels) in the 70s. You can find some from time to time on Ebay. Did you Originals wear cord jackets (with smaller lapels i'm pretty sure), and if you did were they two or three buttons ?
