    Thats absolutely right. I kept stuff for some years because they were just too good to part with. But they were out of fashion and I had grown too big to wear them so they got thrown out. Who would have thought so many years later they would be collector items. They were just clothes of the day and no future value (sentimental or cash wise) was ever attached to them. Yes our ole mums had some quality dusters back then

    I can remember my wife wearing one of my original Ben Sherman shirts as a painting smock in the early 80s.

    I still had some of the gear lying around - mainly Ben S - in the late 70s and early 80s - when I was living in the Liverpool area and going to clubs there. I used them with a kind of 'nod-to-punk, nod-to-skin' look, if that makes sense.

    Regarding weapons, I never went tooled up, ever. Amongst the crowd I knocked around with the commonest weapon was a light ale bottle.

    I was involved in the Boston rock scene starting in early 82'.The Bosstones came along about late 84-85(they were considered a bad joke).They were not influenced by Slapshot,they came later.

    I mentioned the moon landing, but what were some other major events of the day that take you guys back, and what were you all doing, drinking, listening to, etc. that day/night?
    New years 68, etc.

    Been busy of late so had a bit of catching up to do, thanks george for the link to harry potters nice to see pics on his site wearing a white coat, theres a few pics knocking about on the net of famous Bristol tattooist Les skuse in the same attire.
    Thanks to colin for his memorys regarding his first suit, been scanning some pics of the olds up to the pc, most from the early sixties, interesting to see what was being worn etc, and the effects to many brown splits had on the old man!
    Crikey the splits forgot about that, was still being done in the late 70's usually by the big kids over the park, tried it a few times involved to many changes of underwear in my case, so i stuck to minor vandalism scratching my name/football etc in fences and walls before moving on to a permanent marker which was much better for showing your skills at drawing a commedy penis [​IMG]
