    I think the boy was merely keeping with a check theme and, my father had a similar tie in his wardrobe from the 1950s.

    Just realised it - the Butlins' pic - has a 'Ballroom Blitz' watermark... kudos to them, I didn't see that yesterday as I trawled the web nursing the world's worst hangover. :embar:

    Driving gloves were - briefly - popular up here... dunno if it was the Panthers' cause that encouraged it or just some effective sales strategies by the Glove Marketing Board? :satisfied: :happy:

    The popularity of driving gloves outlived that of berets. The beret thing only lasted a few months. The gloves were seen for about a year and a half.

    The gloves i thought were always a soul thing, most popular in Manchester and in the Twisted wheel i thought ? It was a popular theory that lads only wore one glove on the right hand (black power pose at the 68' olympics !!) but i think alot of people said that they were definately always two worn in the beginning. There are a few photos were lads can be seen wearing them...I will see if i can find them later. later on they became a thing so you didnt fck your hands up when doing a backdrop or whatever. But there are so many conflicting stories. Theres a really good twisted wheel forum room that always has alot of pictures, some of which arent up on here. I will trawl through and see if i can post them here.
    I did buy a pair to wear when cold but lost one. I think ill get a new pair. Dents do some nice ones IMO.


    PS. some shirt porn for you all. Arrived today, new tailored one..

    Looks like a decent, slim-fitting, Baracuta type harrington to me. And for six clams? I wouldn't be complaining!

    Only real criticism would be the crew neck undershirt and a busy plaid shirt paired with a harri'; the choo hoo hat is obviously a matter of personal taste.

    Yeah, nice details on that shirt! Sleeve cuffs are nice, and the button jobbie on 'em looks pissa!
    Collar's got a nice roll to it, too.

    Very nice shirt indeed, where did you get it done?
    And by the way, are there any decent places on the net to get a shirt of ones own design? I've found some, but i dont know about their quality, since i tend to buy shirts in physical stores.

    Thanks Botolph.Always wear the crew neck(others are unconfortable) Don't like hats but since I lost my hair gotta do it (sunblisters bad in the desert)Saw some cheaper knock offs XL.The Lands End isn't so bad.Probably more Polyester than most of these cats would prefer.

    Oh man, the visible crew neck tee is a serious pet peeve of mine; "American Cravat" is a hilarious moniker(and no actual offense meant to Yank mod).

    "To me, I always thought the gloves were a Soul thing .........."

    Ah, but to some of us the Soul and the style are inseparable!

    Two gloves usually worn. The gloves were sported by lads and girls.
