I like that tache I must say. In my later days as a bit of a smoothie I grew one myself. Didn't go down too well with some of my shorter haired mates...

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.

I will go along with the Women looking Gorgeous-especially the cute one with the Gingham Check.Excellent set of Photos.

I wondered if the Leather Trim,on Pockets,were anywhere else.Used to be a Tannery in Gomshall(near Guildford)where you could get off-cuts.A Mate worked there so that is how we got the Trims.The Pockets lasted a lot longer.

I think you look very "French",M-o-M!!!!biggrin.gif

Fantastic photo A&E, that would make a great album cover* too.

Loempiavreter - again, brilliant photos, thanks for posting them. Eyes off the girl in the gingham Brownie, she's with me...happy.gif

Wasn't the leather glove thing pinched from the Black Panthers? (topical Mexico Olympics '68?)




*Google it kids

I recall - not with any affection and I never had anything the brand made... Campari.

Some of the cheaper denims were not blue... but a murky grey, IIRC.

Nasty! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

... it had to be a driving glove, up here.

On the plus side, two of you could pool your scant resources and share... awwww. shog[1].gif

In that iconic BP Olympic pic, that's what the two black athletes did - so it must have been okay. (An Aussie took third place on the podium and, because he agreed with their stance, had his career (almost) ruined.)

This girl is similar to the 'gingham' girl posted by Loempiavreter.  This may of been on the thread sometime back?

Theres a few murals of that scene out here in Oakland, CA. They usually cut the Aussie out due to ignorance.

 

 

Interesting to see people in all their outerwear on the dancefloor, compared to these days — it gets hot enough in a jumper and BD in venue with modern HVAC, must have been roasting.

And as mentioned numerous times, not a visible pair of braces in sight.

 

I like this girl's cut. Unfortunately not too common these days.

I used to love that "Cut" of Hair(and the short Check Skirts).smile.gif

To be honest,never quite understood the clenched Fist of "Northern Soul".Must stem from the wearing of the Black Glove.Always looked upon it as "Black Power".

I have a question about some Warrior Sta Prest that I just recently bought. These are my first pair of this type of trousers.  I have noticed after wearing them a few times that the places on the pants where they pull the tightest (such as the knees when sitting and the thighs), have actually started to lose their crease. I know that the name implies that they, well...stay pressed, but is this something that DOES happen? If so, is there a way to stop this from happening? I can tell you this, I will not be too happy if I have to get these pressed every few wears haha.
