Maybe it was a provincial thing but definitely skinheads in Bristol wearing grand-dad vests, bright coloured ones as well - but no tie-dyed you'll be glad to hear biggrin.gif

Think the fatigues were more at the tail end of smoothie going into boot-boy, like with the baggy navy whites and overalls that were worn around 1972 onwards.

I never liked DJs who tried to be continually upbeat or were too Americanised. Mike Raven never put on an act or tried to dumb down to suit an audience. He knew his stuff and passed on his knowledge and shared his enthusiasm with no 'Smashy' and 'Nicey' nonsense - which was rife in those days. He was one of the original music anoraks.

I remember one kid wearing a Grand-dad Vest once(I can see them in the Shops-Yellow,Green(bright one at that),Orange,Light Blue,etc.,)he got so much stick,he never wore it again.To me and a lot of Skins I knew,they and Grand dad Shirts represented Hippies.Funny how,in other parts,they were worn by Skinheads.

Mike Raven and somebody else I used to listen to,Alexis Korner,knew their stuff.People like Rosko gave you a good time.I had come away from the "Concept Album" where Groups where singing about things about them.I knew what it was like,I could see it everyday-why would I sit and listen to it at home.I wentout to Dances to enjoy myself

I saw one bloke, once in 1968, in Bromley, N Kent, wearing a grandad vest, braces, and Levis, and that was that. After or before that, nada!

I've always seen that kind of shirt (an undershirt with 3 or 4 buttons) called a "henley".

Chris would those navy whites be the same thing as the parachute trousers that a mutual friend of ours in Bristol mentioned to me

Paul weller did a collaboration with Fred Perry a few years ago..

 

These were his take on the  'Henley' shirt. : -

Fraid not mate, ex Navy trousers available from Marcruss on Hotwells Road, just plain white baggy trousers - never wore them myself as I had legs that would put a sparrow to shame (still have).

Funny how much we used to get from ex Army stores - some of it looked good but my mate who came to school looking like a World War II Japanese rear admiral looked a tad uncomfortable playing British Bulldog. biggrin.gif
