Its just a shame there isn't really a shop''up north''(well s yorks anyway) what stocks vintage Levis stuff.

I wouldnt mind a 1967 trucker jacket but at 285 quid they are a bit much, i recently found a levis trucker jacket without side pockets but its got a small e levis tag, im quite tempted to take the big e tab from my 1947 levis now and swap the small e tab on the trucker with it, small e levis red tabs dont look right to me now.

they will look great after a couple of washes and the leg twist kicks in. My 1955s the selvegde seam faces forward on the left leg. Gives it that old authenticity to the jeans

Hi I'm going to play devils advocate here (so no offence to anyone) I was in a pub in the city centre and in one of the back rooms there was a party of "old" skinheads and mods having a bit of a reunion, they were dressed in all their gear and to be honest they looked f*****g stupid, they reminded me of the original teddy boys who still dressed the part in the eighties and nineties,the point I'm genuinely asking is how far do we go to look smart and keep the faith at the age we are now?

'The Look Goes On' here on SF is a thread aimed at examining the relevance of the Look to today's world.  You might try that...

Its a young mans game IMO, no offence to anyone here.

Then again i think most of the older blokes here(no offence again lol) dont really dress in full anymore. of course it is good to take elements from it, but to wear full gear at that age is a bit daft.

Thanks dj ,you understood what I was saying, I'm a relative newby on this forum so I don't want to ruffle anyone's feathers .i was trying to gauge how far one goes without looking like a tribute band to 1969 .its all very well some people pontificating on style when one has "bottomless" pockets.

I just wish that LVC would stop making Dates up and sticking them on their clothes though. None of the years they use, have any similarities in fit nor cut to what they are supposed to be representative of.

 

Rant over.....

 

Before I start on the denim, thread and stitch :facepalm:

I think when you reach a certain age there is a time when you put away the bovver boots and braces, button down shirts, jeans, sta prest and loafers are fine i think cos those are sensible items.

 

I don't think i will have my jeans rolled up that high and wear big bovver boots when im older, even tho i enjoy wearing them now i dont think i would look right at that age.

 

Then again its true for all subcultures tbh, its always strange seeing late 40's early 50s blokes still in there punk gear etc.

Going over old ground mates. 

The "age appropriate" clothing has been discussed at length on this thread.

As usual, better to avoid generalization IMO.

If you look, for example, at M-o-M pictures, you will see that is look is very close to the one he had in 1969. And he is a smart fellow !

Hi clouseau,, yes it is old ground but for newer members such as myself and Dj it isn't,yes you are right we can't generalise,some say if you are over fifty don't wear light blue jeans /don't wear leather jackets etc,and yes anyone can wear what they like, but at a certain age those people in the pub looked like mutton dressed as lamb to use an old phrase, and no I didn't tell them so smile.gifbiggrin.gif

:D  Probably i didn't tell them either.

 

It's true that - for example - it's better to avoid big boots and braces at a certain age. Furthermore if you have a beer belly !

That would be perfect for the northern version of aggro man.

You're right-- here Stateside at shows/gigs, etc., you see fellows my age(40+) with loudly-checked Brutus shirts tucked into tight jeans with braces and Ronald McDonald boots and it looks ridiculous. After you hit 30(at the latest!)you need to tone it down! You're right in saying it's a young man's game.
But yeah, for yourself and other neophytes, use the search function to find older posts. If you have something to add, just quote the post and say your piece. Not trying to piss in anyone's Cheerios, as I like a little nostalgia and revisiting old posts, we like to move forward here! biggrin.gif
