    And not only about teenage fashion ... I remember reading an account of the first London Marathon in the Sunday Times where it was reported that one of the favourites had dropped out because "he had run in to a wall." Cue much hilarity amongst the running fraternity ..............

    The MA-1 subject has been touched here several times. BTW the recent point/question was more about (army) overalls than MA-1.

    About colors, a restatement of facts:
    The MA-1 was initially produced in midnight blue and sage green. Blue was the original color used by the military, but it was soon replaced by green (...) Presumably, the green was eventually adopted because it blended more easily with the environment.
    (
    From MA-1 article on wikipedia. You can do other research about MA-1 history and you'll find a lot of articles on different websites. So, the usual statement is that blue was the first color, later most of the time replaced by green for practical camouflage reasons. Then, around 1960, an orange lining was added for another practical reason: the pilot could reverse his "bomber" for a highly visible signal to rescue personnels. Some MA-1s were still made without the orange lining, mainly for the ground personnels.)

    Now, as MoM said, apparently you could only find the green ones in London in 1969-1970, probably just because they were (more or less) in stock in the Army surplus at the time.
    As usual i guess it doesn't mean that someone in UK at the time didn't own a blue one. [​IMG] Of course we are not speaking of the cheap knock-off.

    These guys appeared in the surf film Bikini Beach. They came on stage with Beatle hairstyles, and suddenly hidden wires whipped their wigs off.
