Make of this what you want.

FWIW: my first - and it was black - harrington was from Stone-Dri* on Market Street, city centre Manchester in 1969.

Subsequently had red and blue ones - but can't remember where they were from.

Second one is a tad too 'country gent' for me.

We were 'urban warriors', so not for me - therefore I'm out. satisfied.gifhappy.gif

Country Gent thats a good one Ed,understood.Only thing I like on the second choice is the suede on the inside of the collar.I found several recent Harringtons in awful patterns and colors,didn't post,didn't want to upset the Orig.'s delicate sensibilities.Here is a new one I found. Says Tottenham Skins.

Wow!


I don't know what to say about this.

Is it 'of the day'.. or some fuqqer with a bad camera from later on?

A conundrum but, our boys from the Capital will know. (FTR: I"m steamin'.) satisfied.gif

Edit: Nah, this is later than us lot - IMHO.

The Photo and account come from a site dedicated to the American Ivy League.700

 

I got started in the “Ivy” retail business in 1958 when I joined a company that had one store on the campus at Ohio State called The University Shop. That same year we opened our second store at Ohio University, where I became manager. From ‘58 to ‘71 we would open 23 University Shops at other major campuses, including Purdue, Bowling Green, University of Kentucky, University of Cincinnati, University of Georgia, Auburn, University of Alabama, Tulane, University of Florida, and Clemson.

The clothing formula for our customers was to put them in a Baracuta jacket, Gant shirt, Canterbury belt, Corbin khakis, Adler socks, Bass Weejuns, and St. Johns Bay Rum. Unbeknowst to me, I would one day come to be the owner of the latter.

Late 70s I'm afraid chaps. The geezer on the left with the Shakin' Stevens legs (holding a can in each hand) has a 'home' white Spurs shirt on that came out in '77.

Edit. Just seen your Edit Ed. Spot on. biggrin.gif

None of 'us' would ever consider ourselves 'uber' sensitive - really - crack on, pal. satisfied.gif

We have no ownership rights on anything, other than that which was our heritage.

'We' know - and that's all that matters. nod[1].gif
