gotta say the one detail I always apreciate about your photos is that you're one of the few english gents (at least in pics I see) that uses a real hankie in his breast pocket, as opposed to the carded kind which I always thought was akin to wearing a clip on tie.
and generally speaking I also prefer a more traditional suit, with the single ticket pocket.

I am wearing my Paratroopers Wings, with Poppy, It was remembrance weekend.

Sort of a cross between these two: (I think, and nothing like 'Frank Wright' - which I loved.) ?

Not sure if any suit this cheap is ever "worth it," but a site called iTailor confirms they will do zip side adjusters.

http://www.itailor.com/

If for no other reason, check em out to play around with their suit editor.

 

 

2 Questions:

 

1) Did any of you make special innovations when you had suits made or was that more of a mod thing? And were the pants tapered or more straight legged?

 

 

Also:

 

what other minor fads did you see come and go during your time? I saw blue fedoras and ID bracelets mentioned, anything else?

 

 

I realize teenage years come and go fast (mine did) but it's still amazing to me how fast this all happened, and how things seemed to change month to month.

Also how clueless we all were about most of these little details in the 90s, even when the whole trad thing taking off.

 

Thanks again for sharing your experiences, everyone.

It was funny,I was writing that I could not remember the Timpsons`Loafer-when this Image flashed into my head(a cross between the two above).In fact they bought out a similar Loafer(not Timpsons),in the late 70s.I bought a pair then.

The Trousers were straight-18"Bottoms.The Tapered Leg was more Mod.(or should I say-more 80s Mod).

I do not remember ID Bracelets worn-but that is not to say they were not.The later Skinheads certainly had them.The Trilbys were two distinct Styles.The first being(`64/`67)the Blue Beat Hat(Stingy Brim),with the bow at the back.`69/`70 you had the navy blue Trilby.For a short while Leather Trilbies made a re- appearance(Mod)-but I do not know how widespread that was.

Check Shirts that are seen everywhere today,were not worn that long.It was mainly Stripes and Plains(Ben Shermans).It was only when Brutus (Which I never wore) and Jaytex came out that you had the more colourful Checks(but that was late`69).

In the beginning(`67/`68)things did change and many different ideas came and went,but when late `68 came it became a Uniform.

Personally, I think that this 'grey area' is the most interesting - there's some very innovative styles and ideas being worn across the country in this period (eg jungle greens, trainers, t shirts, any style boots) Apart from this forum, there has not been a lot written about this transitional period? Maybe it only appeals to me because a)I can't afford a pukka mtm suit and b) I'm a scruffy bugger. shog[1].gif
