    The ruperts were made by Evvaprest. Same style as sta prest but with a cheque patern. Other makers would have made them aswell i believe Brutus made some too but the quality was poor apparantly. Although they are sought after now. Probably because not many pairs survived. :D

    ..and as an aside, i went in to a tailor/alteration store near my place to ask how much it would cost to taper on of my levis, and i asked about getting turnups in some jeans as well..i explained that i wanted them 'reversed'...the lady asked - IS THAT THE NEW STYLE?..anyways i digress..

    ian those pics of those girls are great, love the hair, short and sweet!

    It was - didn't want to rub it in, though. :nodding:

    Best, at his best - sublime. :worship:

    Do you not think that with Fed Perry's, Slazenger V-necks, 'Rupert's' and loafers*, we were like so many Jimmy Tarbrush/Ronnie Corbett golfing fans? :)

    * I even bought a pair of Fringed and tasseled golf shoes - Hurley's Sports (Piccadilly, Manchester) though took the studs out - because they looked superb.

    Just a thought...

    Indeed Ed, which was why I rarely strayed from the staple items of jeans, boots, plain black Gibsons, Harringtons, Crombies, checked shirts, tennis shirts, and V necks. I had one pair of Ruperts in about 72-73, and later I had a POW double breasted suit.

    Aye, 'Rupert's' were never my thing and... I still wear PoW suits. (They tend to be the darker varieties - too lardy nowadays for the lighter grey materials.) :slayer:

    Anyone remember the 'Slazenger' fakes that looked like someone had glued a dead cat to the jumper/tennis shirt?

    And I'm sure some of the later 'Crombies' were made from horse blankets - dreadful stuff.

    (Still can't manage to use Brut, though.) :satisfied:

    Edit: spelling.

    Yep, mine was light grey too, with a faint pale blue line and a faint dark red line.

    Brut? Blimey, last time I wore that was probably about 1980, going out on the piss in Darlington with some other lads from the Squadron.

    LOVE these boots. easily the best DMs imo. Better than the regular MiE oxblood 1460s and even better than the $$$ Raf Simons collaboration 8i boot. Seriously, if I was to only be able to wear one pair of boots the rest of my life these would be it.

    ^ yep, those are great. I tried them on at the Haight Street shop and the finish and color are really good. The brass eyelets which are slightly more spaced out are a nice touch, too.

    unfortunately, the 8s were a bit small on me. and the 9s too big. fugg.

    the Dr Marten own brand insole does a really good job of filling up extra space if the shoe/boot is up to half size too roomy. always an option to consider if you run into the too small/too large in between foot size
