    Actually it wasn't made by the ABC (that's where I saw it) it was made by either his son or nephew. If you get a chance take a look, absolutely amazing story.

    I also know the pub . It does not seem that big though. There used to be a smashing Wetherspoons pub called The Printworks on the other side of the road very clean and well laid out and very cheap drinks too. That closed and then became a club. Interesting area. My dancing days are long gone I hasten to add.

    The difference with this Forum is-there are a few "Originals" on here.We were not Nazis(don`t forget our Fathers fought against Hitler),nor Communists-they came later.We were People that went out and enjoyed outselves etc.,dressed the way we liked '.Anyone who has a genuine interest in the Fashion,will certainly have their Questions answered.Jokers will be found out. :)



    The Pub is small-with stone slab Flooring,but downstairs there have been quite a few Soul Nights .I know, I have been to a few of them-over the years.I still like going out,do not say I am a Dancer though-Pubs just bore me full stop.Around here they are either Eating Places or with Rock Bands playing in them.

    Takes me back... you've certainly retained the look and refrained from going OTT - well done, the suit looks ace. :nodding:

    Nice smart looking suit there. I met with Jason the other week to get measured for a similar style and color. He was very helpful. I'm going to order mine sometime next week. Can't wait to get it.

    I agree on the suit mate, hangs like it should. Was it a distance job or did you have a couple of fittings?? I've found a great tailor here in Melbourne that a mate put me onto, just gotta find some nice material.

    Just a thought - any of the rest of you from 'back in the day' remember 'jungle greens' being referred to as 'dockers'?

    Pubs are a great British institution that are under serious threat from drinking at home, excessive tax, etc. In the late sixties we used to drink rubbish - keg beer and light and bitter before lager took over. Then ales improved in the 1970s. I would go out of my way to drink in a good pub.

    Always called / known as 'jungle greens' or -pair of greens' and always the ex surplus store second hand ones. The best were ex USA Army. Never wore the new type from Millets as not hard wearing enough for building site usage. Only heard the term 'Dockers' in recent years and the style is not as the original ;greens'
