    Yes, happy birthday Ed. Life begins at 60! I went to a 99th BD party on Monday. The birthday boy gave a great speech without any prep or notes!!

    Many happy returns Ed. if it wasn't for the over 60s, there'd be little point to this thread. Be proud and live long.

    Best wishes Ed, have a very happy birthday - what's left of it! Sorry it's late.:)



    Rugby shirts? As nippers we wore them because a mate had a picture of an obscure 60's

    Mod group 'The Eyes' in them, buttoned up and ironed (not worn like a real ale drinker.)

    The group also wore parkas with pink scooter tyre tracks over the back!

    The Eyes Circa '65 Ealing, London


    Didn't girls wear them as mini-dresses too? I'm sure there's a pic of Twiggers wearing one.

    That pic completely ruined my breakfast.

    So I trawled through image after image of Twiggy (oh what a shame!) until I came up with this:

    Have just listened to the Eyes on youtube.Not bad at all.In `65/`66 I would certainly have listened to them more-if I had known about them. :)

    I always did like that girl, what good taste she has (that's Sunderland Rugby Club's strip she's wearing!)

    Surely that's the 80's? The jeans look way too tight for the 60's.

    I have often tried to wrack my Brain(what little use it gets)and remember where I bought my first pair of Levis.Somebody has been writing about his "Teenage Experiences" and said that the only place you could get them originally ,was Millets.In those days Millets were responsible of getting stuff that we would eventually buy as Mods/Skinheads.Look at them now.:)

    Just for the pleasure of contradiction Mademoiselle, about jeans really too tight on a notorious late 60s picture (featuring gay skinheads precursors)...
