    Alright chaps, some great stuff this past week or so, just catching up.

    Hello to the new lads.

    Circustavern777's photos were great as was Ed's essay - like reading Spike Milligan, brilliant.

    I've posted this before, '66 I think. Note in photo that the ID bracelet is so heavy, he can't pick his arm up.

    Cheap, chrome (?) plated and turned yer wrist green. Far out.


    What about the striped nylon watch straps? Were they 'in' briefly?

    I had some great hipsters made (shirts always came untucked when you wore them though - very 60s!) Great big belt loops and a thick belt to go with it, great look.
