Priceless!!! nod[1].gif

It is a great pic - thanks A&E and Ed.

I know I always go on about this - but it shows once again that clothes then used to Fit! They presented an easy, classic kind of look - providing a timeless style that will never appear out of place.

Apologies if this is already on the thread.

I reckon I 'found' it when pissed, saved it and forgot about it. (I'd saved it as 'twisted' so maybe it was 'the Wheel'?

Good pic, mind.

It is the Wheel, 14th November 1970, the night when Ben E King played Live.

Some other cool pictures from the same lot, one thing to notice they LOVE leather up there, leather levi trucker jackets, leather driving gloves, leather stiched to rim of your jean pocket, leather patches, some tasty sorts as well. All from the Twisted Wheel of course.

market harborough allnighter 68-69 & Wilby Northampton mixed together.
















(look at his pockets of his jeans, that's what I mean by "leather stitched to rim of your jean pocket")


And even leather driving gloves for the girls! A rare soul thing i reckon, those driving gloves?

Cool to see a wrangler jacket in the mix,as I'm sure you all know they and lee made a denim jacket similar to levi's trucker jacket, both lined and unlined, makes sense as they were levi's main competitors at the time.

How common were those at the time?

Also, is that a monkey jacket on the fellow behind?
Looks like fun times!

Wow, great shots, especially the ladies. So sleek.
Funny about the gloves, I have a pair I wear sometimes, so I can pretend I'm Steve McQueen when I'm driving my volkswagen smile.gif
never thought they were a skin thing.

What kind of jacket is that with the trim on the collar and pockets?

Again, Great pics.

I don't know I wasn't around at the time, they were probably quite common but not among skinheads, I agree with you on that mark , I just thought I would throw in the correction because its a common mistake, girl in the first pic is indeed smoking hot though and that jacket you are talking about is most likely the same wrangler jacket I pointed out.

To Ed, who quoted the above - Ben E King played at The Wheel so many times. I saw him there live in 1968 on my second visit up North after moving down South.

Can you say which is Market Harborough and which is Wilby?

I have to say this - the young women are gorgeous!

As always, Ed, the issue is copyright.

They weren't the only firms either. In 1967 I had a jacket by Westcott - a bit of a 'cheapy', but it got by, nobody said "Bloody hell, Tonk, what a fcuking awful jacket" ('Tonk' was my main nickname 'up North', along with 'Frenchman' sometimes - no idea why!)



I hate this picture, by the way.
post #8460 of 19267

I'm sure there were a ton of brands, I was mainly focusing on the big 3 so to speak because I assumed those would the most common but I could be wrong on that, I can't imagine only skinheads wore such jackets ? Was it a youth subculture thing in general or was everybody and their grandmother rocking the denim jacket?
