Yes I remember having black and a beige ones and they looked good with either Ben Sherman or Fred Perry shirts - I haven't seen these for years

Went to the Lacey Lady,Spooky Lady(some Mates of mine lived that way).Did not go to Wanstead too much-rather Stratford(The Swan),The Pigeons along the Romford Road.Village Gate used to just down the Road towards Stratford.Edward V11th in Stratford Broadway.

Well we West Londoners had no worries about going over to the East End, we would get off at Whitechapel, over the road for a couple in the Hospital Tavern, then onto the Black Bear, The Blind Begger was of no interest to us ,[ no music in there] we would also get in the Old Globe and the New Globe.
We would also venture right out to the Room at the Top.. and the Palais Ilford. another place was the Lion and Keys Stratford.
We went fcuking everywhere.biggrin.gif

Only saying what I was told Roy.smile.gif

I was taken to Carnaby Street when I was 14(`64).I bought my first pair of Hipsers from" Donis" then(with money I had saved from various Jobs I was doing).For the next 2 years,I graviated around there-buying Clothes ,going to the Marqueeand seeing various Groups(it was here in `67 I saw the Skatalites,which changed my direction of Mod).Then I had a No.4 got rid of the Coloured Shirts etc.,and eventually became a Skinhead.

The Boxng Bout,I would love to see A.I looked pretty Fit in that Cage Fight.

To be honest,I only had one chunky Cardigan-did not go in for them as big as the Sleeveless ones.

Whilst I'm here, anyone know when Brighton Loafers were first worn? I was only born in '69 so memories of the era are a bit vague! Just about to order a pair.

Get them... then post a pic! nod[1].gif

Always Ravel for my platforms, leather Budgie jackets from Sunday morning market on Petticoat Lane - down on the 'special' for the Saturday game - dossed in London overnight, then 'jumping' the rattler back to Manchester late Sunday night.

South Sea Bubble jumpers, long leather coat from a 'trade' outlet in Manchester's Shudehill, shirts from H & J (Harvey and Jack), a couple of Jewish guys in the rag-trade... I was lucky, I had younger brothers to pass (flog) my cast-offs to.

Embarrassed to say it, now, had a pair of grey/blue velvet flairs, that were my pride and joy... what a twaat I must have looked, sometimes.

(My hair (then) was jet black, and I tried to have it coloured, 'Bowie'-style... it used to go baby-sick yellow. (Good job the hairdresser - moved on from the local barber, obviously biggrin.gif - cut a sample off to try, first.)

And studs, on the back of the jackets and the arse of the jeans - sometimes made into words... and dungarees!shog[1].gif

Just remembered: platform boots... with goldfish in the heels!

There was a proper dust-up when these were launched. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
