    You know I was thinking about saying that as I was typing the message, but no I'm not I'm not Caleb and why is he saying that's his name I thought it was Roy? I've been told such big feet or bigger weren't really common back then a more recent development most likely due to all the hormones pumped into the foods nowadays.

    [FONT=lucida grande, tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif]The Stags Head is f[/FONT]airly easy to get to, a short walk from Hoxton and Haggerston stations, not even that far to walk through from Old Street.... and next to Kingsland Road with buses to points north, south, east and west.

    Live Injection is here

    flyfronted,I have another couple of "verses" to your song.....
    "Boots are made for bovver,
    Trains were made to wreck,
    And if i see a City fan i,ll break his f***ing neck.

    Who,s the greatest player,
    ???? is his name,
    And if you come to Eastville,
    You wont go home again"...............

    I can remember loads of songs and chants,but i cant remember from when in the 70s,its like certain games or styles they get mixed up,a mate of mine Topper had a brilliant memory , records,football matches,who did what and where,he could remember it all,i envy that.

    Maybe of interest ?
    Extract of an interview of the actor Gary Oldman:


    Back then, though, it was the Seventies and I suppose I was a sort of suedehead - I wasn't really a skinhead, but it was still a bit of a uniform. You had the Crombie coat with the pocket handkerchief with the stud. I owned a couple of those, I walked into school assembly once and I had a white 'Benny' on - a Ben Sherman shirt, button-down with a pleat in the back and a little hanger loop above it. I didn't have a jacket on and the headmaster, before I even landed, said, 'Oldman, wait outside my office.'
    The accessories were important - loafers and brogues, and the socks: they were white and red. I remember saving up for things. I used to get up really early and do the round with the milkman; and I had a paper round. I remember gazing into shop windows at a pair of brogues or Dr Martens on the other side of the glass, like that ring in Lord of the Rings! And I'd think, 'Three more weeks…'

    I don't think it's been brought up before on this thread, but does anybody have any experience with Kamakura shirts? They're an ivy-obsessed Japanese shirtmaker who have recently opened a shop in NYC. I took the plunge($79/shirt) on a green/white striped OCBD, and for what you'd pay for a Brooks Brothers, you get a better collar roll, better cut options, and exact measurements(i.e. 16.5/33 as opposed to S, M, L, XL). Really high quality shirts...
    Beautiful heavy but breathable oxford weave, impeccable stitching, and collar that roll like butter. Only downsides are no locker loop and it's only a 2-button collar so no third. Back yoke stitched at the top, and the Tokyo Slim fit has darts in the back. Their cuts are New York, New York slimfit, Tokyo(what I have), and Tokyo slim fit.
    I ain't working on commission or anything, but I was pretty blown away by the quality to price ratio of the shirts.

    Anybody else take the plunge?

    Clouseau.The article by Gary Oldman was a great read for me ,we are the same age so i could see many similarities ( ok i dont play the piano or support Millwall ) with his clothes in the 70s and working/saving to buy them.Today i got that Paul Smith navy blue jeans belt that you put a picture up of many pages back,it is really good quality and i got it in a sale for half price ! thanks for the information....any ideas for a white,slim fit short sleeve button down ?

    I think too this Gary Oldman's interview was really good. His evolution (on the clothing style subject) is interesting. But of course we don't have the same budget (& renown) as a famous actor... So it's pretty difficult to always wear the last Paul Smith suit...His insights too were interesting, and rang a bell on several subjects we discussed here.

    On short sleeve button down i won't be very original. I recently bought a white slim fit Ben Sherman ("soho fit") i quite like. Button down, but with a small collar. No chest pocket or back pleat. So it is quite different to a regular Ben Sherman. With a modern twist IMO. Bought it during the sale. Was cheap. Nice fit.

    I have the very same one. Next to a dark navy one, it's the one I wear the most.

    And for the price of a Brutus Trimfit but made for the normal-cut fellow, and won't disintegrate. Bulletproof shirts.

    Just while we are plumbing the absolute depths of bad taste:

    (To the tune of 'Clementine')

    How's your father? How's your father?
    How's your father, referee?

    You ain't got one, you're a bastard,
    You're a bastard, referee!
