I don't know about 'saddle shoulders' but I like the sweaters made by Woolovers:

I actually did a good whack of a Tailors apprenticeship when I was in my teens (too fucking stupid to see the bloody thing through, could've really turned that opportunity into something beautiful).

I am going to see if I can spend some time training with anyone who will give me a shot either in Thailand or Cambodia. I would probably have more chance in India but I will only be there to oversee the finishing of some Lammies I am doing for some mates.

Now, what are people's thoughts on side vents versus a centre vent?? I know that some people say that side vents are for mods but I actually like the way they look.

 

I like Side Vents with a 3 Piece and Centre with a 2.

Yeah but they do blue and they do burgundy - what more do you want? biggrin.gif

That blue one I was wearing at York was a Woolovers.

thanks for the reco' lads. I actually gave a try at LL Bean. They have a lambswool v-neck with the saddle shoulder... I think that's an Ivy League detail. Not so sure if it's really something the trad. skins were into or not, but I'm keen on it.

Btw, thanks to whoever mentioned that Dancehall '69 compilation. It's on Spotify and I've had it on repeat for two days.

cheers.gif

Very Smart,Mate.The Prices are not too bad either.

I am sure I had a Saddle-Shoulder Jumper,but it was years after the Skinheads.

Are you saying you discovered the names to look for then sourced them direct from US or elsewhere ? If yes then you would probably undercut him. The big downside is customs charges.

Interesting, this renewed debate about JS and his wares. I see it has got everyone very excited over on Talk Ivy. I am enjoying just being a spectator there and assume james is browniecj using a nom de plume.

I must admit to only rarely shopping at JS shops from around 1971 up to the mid 80s when he opened in Covent Garden and when the 80s pursuit of 'authentic' brands called me back.

My recollection when it comes to the authenticity of his late 60s offerings, is really that we were not anywhere near as concerned as brownie about the provenance of his shoes and clothes. The Look was what we were after and we were prepared to pay the premiums demanded. As has been said many times, the skinhead was very selective about which items he obtained from JS anyway. It was mainly shoes and shirts but later for me, gabardine trousers too (in late 1970).

smile.gif Yes that is me!!

What I trying to say was,that in the 60s,the Ivy Shop was using misleading Promotions.Do not forget I was 16 when I first started using the Shop.Some of the Comments have come from People-who have forgotten what they thought at that Age.I just continued with the fact that I was finding cheaper alternatives-Royals etc.To be honest,the reason why I have not gone into any John Simons Shops since-is to do with Economics.I find things on the Net and I still look around.Simple.

By `69,the Ivy Shop was off my Radar.It had got expensive.I have been vilified by saying that John Simons did not care for Skinheads.But they were his main Customers,or a majority of them.Whenever I have worked in a Shop,I have learnt "Never Judge A Book By Its Cover".
