1] I was refused entry to Dreamland in Margate because I had boots on. I went to a local beach shop and bought a pair of flip-flops, and carried my boots in a poly bag. It didn't worry me one bit, and it didn't worry my girlfriend.They might have had their boots confiscated at the station (looks like a seaside pic) and had to buy some cheap footwear at short notice in the town.
Back in those days the police could pretty much do what they wanted, and sod your human rights. If you objected they'd get you on something else, something petty like 'threatening behaviour' or some such.Thinking about that practice now (the removal of boots) , it sounds like a breach of human rights . What authority did the police have to do that. .
I recall a trip to Yarmouth with some lads and lassies from Notts. There was a small group about 50yds behind us and as l looked around one of the lads had stopped to tie his laces.Back in those days the police could pretty much do what they wanted, and sod your human rights.

I remember on a trip to London in 67, I tagged on the end of an anti-Vietnam-War march and had a Met peeler treading on my heels all the way, daring me to react.
I went to a Chelsea match with a mate back in 82. Police made me take laces out of boots.1] I was refused entry to Dreamland in Margate because I had boots on.

2] It occurs to me that a couple of years previously, in Blackpool, some lads occasionally wore Scholls. But it wasn't a major thing by any means.

I have an occasional butchers at their site @Inkss but have never pulled the trigger on anything. Hard to tell the quality of their tackle. I’ve seen those sta pressts and was always a bit puzzled that they were 100 percent cotton - so sta presst or chino? Worth a punt for a tenner like.Got these prest trousers for £10/$12.50 :

100% cotton and made by Modshopping, which I think is based in Thailand.
Hopefully they're better quality than Relco/Warrior, but for a tenner I'm not expecting too much on the quality front. Worth a punt though, and they do seem to have a decent rise.
