Whereabouts was that taken, John? Anywhere near the Biennale?
So while I'm asking for advice I have another question. Sorry if i'm repeating anything but there's a lot to remember! Did the originals wear those chunky knit style cardigans? How popular were they? In a picture of Lasttye a lad he's with seems to be wearing one with a tie.
Also I know Mikkel Rude does one but they're very pricey for me. I was wondering if this was pretty similar:
maybe change the buttons to leather football ones?
Cheers in advance
Chunky Cardigans was worn by the Originals 68/69, later 69/70 any cardigan was worn not so much the chunky one's though.
Kilburn skinheads wearing various cardigans back in the day,
Me and Mandy wearing a cardigan last year,
double post !
Heres what you be wanting Lads come with crappy leather-lookalike plastic buttons, change them for the real deal and its spot on. I find keeping an eye on cricket style jumpers sometimes comes up trumps on ebay (bought a pure white one thats spot on just needs pearl buttons changing to leather ones) but these are the best ive found by a mile :

Hello Roy pal
Welcome! We young 'uns should stick together, I myself am 5 years your senior. Cloths mad (not fashion mad) is a good start especially if you have an eye for ivy kit, stick around and learn from the late 60s kids, been such an eye opener.
here's an old pic I have never seen til now, wonder if anyone had any info about when it's from, where, etc?
I own a Fred Perry Harrington and Baracuta Slim G9. The slim Baracuta still isn't as fitted as the FP, about the same lengthwise though, also the arms are a lot roomier.
I've been lurking for quite sometime since my last post but this deserves a thank you, I have been debating on whether or not to get a cardigan to wear under my white Harrington and you sir have just helped me make the decision to do so.
I only see girls or gays wearing them (obviously not in a trad style) but that's what has be keeping me from buying one up to this point.
I have a Lonsdale Harrington that fits me perfectly. I'm not sure if it's just my body's build (athletic) but I couldn't ask for an inch more or less anywhere.
You should definitely get one. Cardigans give a nice clean look. Don't let others make you think otherwise(just wear it well because that's what counts).
At the age of 61 I avoid cardigans like the plague - they go with pipe and slippers! But on someone younger they are 'original' gear.
