    I agree on the Velvet Collar.The only time I had one,was when I bought a Black and Grey Herringbone one(about `69/70) which had one.

    The thing is Colin the whole culture was different back then, I would see me Dad putting a suit on Saturday night, and me Brother, Then me Uncle's would come round suited up, By the time I had my suit made i knew Quality, To be honest all the suits i have had made these days.. not one is up to the standard of the suits i had made in the 60s.

    Yes I know what you mean.My Father was the same,they took Pride in how they looked(my Father was an exNaval Man).Your Suits look pretty good now Roy-but as you say,you have to watch them.I remember my Father ,buying me my first Suit,having a go at the Tailors because they got something wrong.I was 12 at the time.

    all of them are original ones from the 1980s or even earlier... bought them mostly as new deadstock or even like new, but worn only 1-2 times before by someone.... the only ones i bought new were the black ones from the last pic... bought these blackburn on the last pic back in the 80s at british boot company in camden when it still was holts and the old holts still was alive.. got another pair of oxblood astronauts, plus 2 more pair of black astronauts not shown in them pix....

    Around my way (S E London) I hardly saw any at all. I wouldn't have got one myself, either.
