That included high kicks, which later were compared to kung fu or tae kwon do kicks. Enter The Dragon came out in 1973.

The NS style its said was copied by those at The Wheel from USA Soul acts who would do the shuffle style dance and back drops - Alvin Cash apparent being a big influence . Teddy Boys also did the back flips as well back in the 70s again copied from 1950s US Rythm n blues acts .

Seen in Spitalfields market last weekend. London-made by some small company and on offer for 40 quid. Does this come fairly close to the surfer jackets worn by skinheads in 1968 that you sometimes mention, M-o-M?

Close, but not very. Different collar, different fabric, and the original was unlined.

I remember Rum and Black (black current) being dreaded when your girl asked for that as if it spilt on your clothes you could never get the stain out so a new shirt or strides were ruined.

I got blind drunk on rum and black when I was 16 and it took me 30 years before I could face a glass of rum again. A West Indian friend went back to Tobago and bought me back an authentic rum and I got over my phobia.

I did the same at 16 but my poison was whiskey and to this day I cannot be next to someone drinking it as the smell of it makes me feel ill.

 

In the good old days when bottles of drink were handed out at Xmas everyone always gave bottles of whiskey and yet I knew vey few people who drank it.  My bottles just got passed onto some other non whiskey drinker

Ach, I can't do rye, bourbon, sour mash, or Irish whiskey due to one evening yonks ago involving a bout with the brown. However, I can drink Scotch whisky just fine, especially a nice Islay malt... though the wife always thinks something is burning in the parlor when I have a couple fingers of it, haha. It's a nice sipper this time of year.
Seems almost everybody has an "evil tipple", due to youthful overindulgence!


Well anyways, a Holly Jolly Advent/Christmas Season to all here. May you all get Royal Brogues, 3-finger collared shirts, and NOS Big E Levis in your stockings this year.

How predictable do you think we are? Hold on... Royals are on my wish list.

Royals are on my wish list as well. I walked past an old fashioned menswear shop in Westcliff near Southend and I saw a pair of Royal brogues in burgundy for £150. I don't need any shoes but they looked so good that I have to buy them.

I remember 'ski jumpers' being popular around 1980 to 1982 as the main component of a post-harrington 2 Tone 'rudeboy' look - something of a precursor to the Pringle/Lyle and Scott pullover look of the casuals. I remembered them after seeing this video on another forum

Now some of the ski jumpers in the video look a bit mad but the red one would be most typical of the time, a fairly simple hoop on a yoke set over a plain coloured body. Colourways could be things like blue/red or even blue/green but eventually seemed to resolve onto a wholly grey, navy blue or burgundy body, as often seen on skinheads (around the same time as waffle-knit cardies).

Not really Fair Isle. Anyone else remember these? I must have had two or three of them over that many years.

Just caught this on the BBC and hearing Neanderthal Man again after 45 years after it being completely erased from my memory was magical !

 There is a moment in The Strawberry Studios,Stockport that should bring a smile to Royton Boy.(12.45min )

Need to take a second look at the Paul McCartney - Buddy Holly Day Party photo,but that sure looks like Big Ron ,front and center in there? 

Seasons Best wishes to everyone …..

Yes. I even bought one (in my early 30s, probably in an attempt to look young) in blue and grey. It's something I would rather forget.

Thanks Gsvs5 - yes, it certainly did. It's still played at matches to this day!

 

Elwood - aren't the 10cc lads from your neck of the woods?

According to the Richard Barnes book, the year or the multiple mirrors fad was 64.
