    Look a bit scruffy: they must be Northern Chelsea.

    When was the Chelsea photo taken? I like it because in one shot you can see quite a variation of what was worn around 69/70. There is a little guy in the middle, possibly wearing a Harrington Jacket, that is already starting to grow his hair. You can see Sta prest , turned up Levi's. You can see Jean Jackets, Sheepskins, Rain Macs, Monkey/Flying Jackets. One bloke is wearing his suit jacket and an older boy at the back looks like he is wearing some kind of tweed. There are even a few Trilby/Pork pie hats. Only one boy is wearing a scarf. They are not smart as in 'Saturday night at the Palais' but they are in their at the football/by the seaside clothes. A few braces but not everyone and jumpers/cardigans. Nearly all are wearing button down shirts. Not wearing a uniform, and quite a variation, but all part of the tradition.

    Great photos Ed,

    I like the lad on the right in the denim jacket, bet on his way out his mum said -

    'Put yer coat on or you'll catch your death........and don't go out with your hair wet or you'll catch ammonia.......'

    Style over comfort. Kids still do it now I'm glad to see, in the snow last week saw 'em out without coats and girls in next-to-nothing, I don't know, tsk tsk.

    Quite a bit later, I remember Droogy looking blokes like that at football. Some of them wearing make up too. Scared the crap out of me.

    Both of the Chelsea photos are from 1970. The one in Brighton was taken on 30 March 1970.

    Love the lad in the middle with the white Sta Prest on, he's either got a piece of lead piping down his strides or he's very pleased to see someone. :)

    That's when it was logged into the Rex Features photo collection. It often happens a while after the event, so the dates in photo libraries can't always be relied on. There are a couple of photos from Brighton that were logged on the 30th, and one on the 29th. When were Brighton playing Chelsea that year?

    The main difference (apart from the price) is the colour. What Solovair call 'oxblood' really is oxblood -- darker than DMs 'oxblood'. Solovair 'Cherry red' is more or less the same colour as the DM MiE Vintage. The other differences can be seen: black collar round the top; black eyelets; black beneath the welt stitching, different soles, heel tag, etc.

    Yes, but it's a bit tricky if you don't have a shoe anvil to hold the shoe while doing it. I'd get a cobbler to tap them in for you.
