100 per cent right- when we gave him the tin ttac I would have happily volunteered to pack his suitcase for him and drive to Gatwick at breakneck speed.

Regarding the ''college boy'' cut, would it be acceptable to have an 8 on top, a 6 or a 5 on the sides perhaps, and a 4 one the bottom instead of a 842?

I've used this example before for barbers. http://zestymag.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/side-parted.jpg


Used this description:

"The sides and back are cut short and tapered across the crown, and the hair gradually becomes longer and fuller toward the front. In a classic ivy league, enough hair is left in the front so that it can be neatly parted and styled, usually with pomade or gel. More contemporary ivy league cuts may style the hair upward or forward in the front, but are still generally neat cuts that follow the shape of the head."

This thread is very interesting. On page 1 a lad who worked at the Ivy shop says that two looks coexisted in 1970, the suedehead one influenced by Ivy style, and another one more stylised, a mix of continental and Ivy league influences, coming from the Drugstore 'minets'. Then, He says that he is sure that John Simons knew that something 'was going on in Paris at the time'.

I was thinking more this length MOM has( i hope you dont mind me using this), it looks a tad longer to your example.

To me that photo you link to looks a lot like the haircut known as a 'short back and sides', the default male haircut of the 60s into the 70s.

As you would expect on a thread of this length, we've been here before!

I know that I called them 'surfer jackets' at the time because of a well-known pic of the beach boys wearing the style. It's just a generic 1960s American college-boy-style windcheater, I guess. They were nylon back then, and unlined. In the NW of England in 1966/67 they were most commonly navy blue with plain navy collar/cuffs, less commonly light blue with plain navy collar/cuffs, quite rarely plain red with navy collar/cuffs. (If I could find one of the latter now, I would be very pleased.)



I can't recall actually hearing the term used by anyone else, but everyone seemed to know what I meant when I used it.

I don't mind, DJ. I've long since got used to the idea that photos of me from back then have been pretty-much assumed to be public property! biggrin.gif
