Of course I was forgetting Eric Clapton in a Baracuta.

Could be a coincidence but this is a photo of Lloyd Johnson from '69/'70 (Edit: couldn't see the pic at first but now I can via Colin's reply )



Here's my take on the french look around the time Marcel and I were knocking around together in Paris 69/70...the suit is brown polkadot velvet..the barnet is a tribute to Marcel..he always had a great look!

This was a "Look" that was totally ignored by Books,such as "Soul Stylists",and yet it did exist-alongside Skinhead.

Wish I'd known Lloyd before I wrote "The French Cut"

In Guildford,in the late `60s,there were a lot of French Students coming over.They always looked very smart and the colours they wore took some beating.They all had the hairstyle,you describe in your Piece,Alex.It is funny when you talk about John Stephens`Look.I have a Photo(and I wish I could find it!!!)in which I am crossing over from Mod to Peanut.I have a no.4 Crop,with slightly Flared Trousers,a Cord Jacket and Brogue Shoes.The Photo was taken in `67.

It's funny that we have alighted on this subject. I had been racking my brains to recall any instance at all of seeing anyone dressed in anything like French fashion. I couldn't! Except for French boys! S E London had the same influx of French kids every July (the traditional French holiday month) probably on 'exchange trips'. We hated them - I'm not putting that too strongly, even I did and I had learned French and visited France and got on very well with French people, including teenagers, on their own patch. We hated them because they turned our girls' heads with their fashion and pose and hairstyle which was so different from ours. I remember attacking one French bloke because my girlfriend had flirted with him. The poor bloke didn't know what was going on and I ended up leaving him alone because I realised my quarrel wasn't with him, it was with my girlfriend. But because these lads usually turned up in a kind of a 'mob' (because their trip to England had been organised as a group trip) there was sometimes an all-in fight, and they usually lost. I think the last thing on earth we would have wanted to do at that time was actually look like them!

I figure skinheads may help me with my dilemma. I have a dark pair of jeans, I love em' to death, hardly washed so they fade real nice and natural. The other day a knife came flying at my leg, slicing open the knee of the pants and of my leg. Basically I bled profusely before I took off the pants and now there is a big brown stain around the knee, how could I get this stain out without washing them a whole lot, I still want them to stay dark.

Would be great if you could find that 'crossover' pic Colin. John suggested a piece about the '65-'68 period but I reckon that'll be covered nicely in 'Walk Proud'. It's a fascinating period I find with a few steady, more matured looks being around as well as those that weren't crystallised as yet. Not sure if people have read the following but I'll post it anyway:

I have always put `65 to `68 as my favourite Period.There was so much Movement going on then.I was leaving School,had some money in my pocket-and there was a new World to explore.Boutiques,Clubs and Music.London was alive then.Now it is very much a shadow of it`s former glory."Swinging London" was in full flow-but then that was a "Brand Name".To the ordinary Person we did our own thing.It was only the "Kings Road"Set who get featured on Film etc.But they did not know the half of it.
