Hope that helps. .

 

But would the bottom bit not remain stubbornly perma-pressed the wrong way then?

Because these items would be brand new , I don't see that as a problem . Adjust , wash and then a run over with a good quality steam iron and Robert would certainly be your fathers brother. .

I have had loads of trousers adjusted in my day and never had a problem. .

Not a bad price 50 notes pair or 80 for 2 pairs. Plus postage
They have what look like some nice Mereno wool v neck jumpers,
Don't know what the quality of their stuff is like, but no disrespect to Relco and Warrior, but anything has got to be better than them.
I have ordered a what looks like a nice navy and white striped tie just today, as I was given a £10 voucher of theirs.
If it's good quality and deliver is quick etc, then I might give one of them jumpers a go.

There was a brochure for Charles Tywhitt in todays Times. The shirts are very nice, a great selection, and reasonably priced too.

Hey all, long time lurker here (about 3-4 years). Never posted but always loving the knowledge, stories, etc.

Anyway, I got hold of a pair of boots today, like new and never worn, and wondering if anyone can shed any light on them.

They have Dr Martens branding, they say 'Southerner' on the side, have a steel toe, and all of the styling of the Hawkins Astronaut but with 10 holes instead of 11. The leather on them feels a somewhat stiff - more-so than I recall my pair of deadstock Hawkins being back in the 90s.

 

Searching through this thread for info all I could find is that ek77 has a pair that look very similar.

 

Got the boots for $65 Canadian which feels like a steal. Much nicer than the Solovair Southerners too IMO.

Pictures are louder than words so here a some shots.

 

 

 

Any details as to date, etc (I'm guessing early 80s) would be appreciated.

 

Cheers!

From what i can recall, 'The Original' was not written on the DM soles before 1989-1990.

That was something I was wondering about, seemed like a newer type thing. The tag not saying Air Wair and the branding inside the boot made me think they might be a bit older. I haven't been able to find any info online of Dr Martens ever making a Southerner.

Going of subject but not at the same time!

On subject bit,
In this photo of me, around 77/78
I have a pair of brown boots on, can't remember what make they were, but definetly not Docs,
The were just above the ankle and had a cream/ white or possibly yellow trim at the top,
Got them from either Millets or Army and Navy.
They were good quality boots and very easy to dye, which I did a year or 2 later, when I joined the Army cadets and dyed them black.

Off subject bit,
Does anyone else, other than me, remember a hair cut called a " Bog Brush" ( that's what I asked for at the barbers and this is the cut he did in the above photo )
Long at the sides and back and short and bristled up on top, ( kind of opposite to a short back and sides)
Everyone I ask doesn't remember calling it that, ( or is it just me, losing my marbles as I get older )
And I can find no reference of it,
The only similar thing I can find is David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust, though his hair was longer than mine

I remember short on top (number 4 crop?) but long (and fairly thin) on back and sides as being a bootboy haircut circa 1974. Sure it had a name but now it escapes me (feather cut?). Sort of coexisted with but was later superceded by longer hair on top with centre-parting and more luxuriant long back and sides. Think I only heard it called a bogbrush when a longer version came back in for teenage girls about 10 years ago.

On the subject of flare when the started in fashion and when they went out,
I would of thought they started in the late 60's and ended towards the end of the 70's,
This photo above of is of my brother in around 77/78
He looks like he could be at Northern Soul allnighter by the way he is dressed,
But that couldn't be further from the truth, he was actually into Punk and Sham69 etc,
I guess there was a cross over in styles, in that period, especially North of The Watford Gap,
From what I can gather most of the Skinheads of that time in the South would have wore narrower trousers/ jeans,
You only have to look at pictures of the so called Sham army,
The only photos I have seen of Skinheads in the South wearing flares at that time is of a couple of lads in Stevenage.

Bought a pair of Loake Royals from the Discount Shoe Shop, over the phone, for £130 and saved around £35. Good quality for the money.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

Then today in TK Maxx, Loake L1 209 boots for £70, saved £65. On their website they have Florsheim imperials for £79.99 in limited sizes.

A good place to drop on Loakes,
Is Charles Clinkard, there is a shop near to me,
So I go and have nosey every now and then, it a bit hit and miss, if they have any in or the size you are after, because
They sell seconds, I got pair Loake loafers for £80, they had a small scuff on the side of one them, with a bit of elbow grease and spit and polish it soon disappeared,
I also bought a pair of long winged brogues for the same price, all that is wrong with them is a slight nick in the welt, you can only see it you are really looking for the fault.
