Johnny Kidd and the Pirates were great. My Dad liked them. The Pirates, who continued well into the ‘70s without Kidd(RIP), were an excellent band, too.There were two Teddy Boys around 80ish in Kingston Wetherspoons on Tuesday. They are always there at the same table. Elaborate greased hairstyle, bootlace tie, brothel creepers or winkle pickers. It is quite a heavy maintenance look. One of them even has an eye patch like Johnny Kidd and the Pirates and you have to be very old to remember them.
I also know a few people who still go on about guitar bands from 40 or 50 years ago.
So there are still small niches of these subcultures around.
Yeah I’ve seen this debated quite a bit. Will people be so used to sitting home in their sweat pants they’ll cut off any desire to get dressed? Or will they be so sick of slumming it that they’ll up their game once Society reopens and be eager to revive their interest in decent threads and rededicate their interest?Johnny Kidd and the Pirates were great.

I wonder if COVID will be the death knell of all actual subcultures, or if people will come out of this with a greater willingness to coalesce with their respective interest groups, and thus strengthen aforementioned subcults.
Not that this will be much help, but I Once bought a circa-1970 Levi type three Trucker off eBay. I looked at various search engines and found some site dedicated to “carbon” dating denim jackets. I believe that if you look inside either the left or right breast pocket, there should be a union label sewn in which might indicate a ballpark era.Is there a source around with various features of trucker jackets which give a clue to their age. I bought a second hand Wrangler a few years ago and I would be interested in how old it is.
Very kind of you. My guess is that it isn’t too old and was perhaps originally bought in the Czech Republic or a neighbour. I do wonder whether it had been reduced at some point.Post a pic of exterior and interior and I'll see if I can tell you
There is a great site I found dating Levi, wrangler jeans and jackets. I replied with link to donkey jacket quite a long time ago, so it's on here somewhere. But I think ivy has answered your query anyway.Is there a source around with various features of trucker jackets which give a clue to their age.
