Hullo all

Just joined up to the forum today...specifically for this thread.

I've loved reading it...well.as much as I've been able to!

I'm looking for some pointers on "proper" trousers...I'm going to shell out for bespoke but want them.to be right so any thoughts on cloth, cut, length etc will be gratefully received.

Just came across these while browsing for a pr of wholecuts ,and these jumped out to me as a the most likely representation of the English made  authentic period Norwegians that I recall seeing worn  around the early seventies.They have a more rounded look and additional layer of leather at the heel that differentiates them from the Americans,and heavier stitching than the French

Yanko is a well respected Spanish Shoe company,that are well worth a punt IMO.

Not sure we had these pictures of Tottenham, North London skins before. They all date 1969-70, though I don't know the exact dates.

 

Tottenham Hotspurs bovver boys on way to FA Cup match away

 

WHL match off due to snow

 

Park Lane skins make an appearance in the Sunday Times.

Nice shoes. Remind me of Crockett & Jones' Onslow I've had for over 10 years; just about my favourite shoes.

Photo of Clapton in 1964, looking well ahead of his time? Not sure if we've had this before. Was in Telegraph obituary of Georgio Gomelsky.

(Insert picture function not working for me at moment so hope link works.)

Never seen that pic of Clapton, very cool. Isn't there a pic (somewhere on this forum perhaps) of him from the same "short hair" era but onstage and wearing a harrington?

Someone recently uploaded this early Slade promo video of 1969. 'What not to wear' in colour!

Yes, they do unusual items like that now , but I didn't know they were doing it back then . To be fair , there weren't as many people making Harringtons back then . .as there are now . You could now buy about 10 Harringtons from some manufacturers compared to the price of 1 G9. .
