1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    NOS always referred to auto parts in the lovely days before the internet. Now it seems to refer to anything and everything, haha.

    Thanks, good to pin down my memory of Aertex. In the link you mention Johnny collars, I could never think of a name for those v neck collars. Not seen them in years, maybe not even since 1978-ish when they were popular on jumpers (except maybe on football shirts).

    They look like slip-on shoes, shoes with elasticated side gussets like a chelsea boot. Mainstream 70s.

    It looks like a Levi leather jacket to me. It has poppers rather than buttons (my modern one has buttons). Yes, they came in both black and brown. The shoes look a little like the jodhpur boots that came into fashion briefly in late 68 to early 69 in London. I believe those boots were known as 'Riders' elsewhere in the UK. I think that what the guys are wearing in the photo are leather 'Chelsea boots' (I agree with covskin), probably bought at a High Street shop, probably the nearest decent thing they could get to a 'rider' style. Note how the blokes with suit jackets button them.

    Anyone guess the year for this? Love the mix of styles that you just didn't seem to get second time around. The blond guy looks like Ace Kefford of the Move:

    ^The first picture is interesting (we had the other one). With his very short crop & jeans and his high boots, he could be a 80s lad ! [​IMG]
    We can see another skinhead standing behind him, with a football scarf too. I wonder what his jacket is, (dirty) denim, suede or leather ?

    This top pic was definitely 1970 - I was there at the Manchester Free Trade Hall (I mentioned this a few hundred pages back) when 'we' were all invited to audition for what became Bronco Bullfrog. (Albeit not ultimately produced in Manchester.)

    (Is that a young John Thaw, doing the selection process?)

    The day before - a Saturday - I had thumbed it down to Northampton to see United beat NTFC with a certain G. Best scoring six, IIRC. :D

    FTR: you can see the plaque on the wall in the top pic mention the Free trade Hall - it's a now an hotel, BTW.

    And the bugger is wearing a red and black City scarf, I reckon. :satisfied:

    Happy New Year, all!!!


    EDIT: Just looked at the football result... and I'm wrong, the 'audition' couldn't have been the next day. (Damn this failing memory but I do know I was at both.) :embar:

    I reckon it's a Wrangler - as are the jeans worn by the kid sitting down. :)

    Could be wrong - often am. :D

    Welcome back, Ed.
    I think you're right, we can (more or less) distinguish the W stitching on the chest pocket.

    I was about to mention that. I think you're right.
