Yep we all had Cords, Its funny as a 80s Skinhead said to me the other week why am i wearing Cords, He also did not know we wore them, Lost in the mist of time,
What you have to remember the cords was Big E Levi's in Jeans style.
Everyone I knew had a pair off cords in their wardrobe, usually beige or black. I've got a photo somewhere of myself taken in 1973 wearing a pair of black Levi's cords with white wood/leather soled shoes (Kingsway?), patterned crew neck sweater and a tartan hat! I was going through my boot boy stage at the time...and no, I will not post it here cos I look a right dickhead!
Harry, what brand are the shoes in your avatar pic?
I ended up getting the DM Drury in oxblood the other day. Wore them out a couple nights over the weekend and so far, so good. My only complaint is that they are a bit loose, the size down was way too tight in the toes though. I think an insole will take care of this, how are the Dr. Martens insoles compared to something you'd pick up at the drugstore?
Thanks for the advice, do you buy the same size insole as the boot that is too large, or do you size down on the insole?
