    Yeah but they do blue and they do burgundy - what more do you want? :D

    That blue one I was wearing at York was a Woolovers.

    thanks for the reco' lads. I actually gave a try at LL Bean. They have a lambswool v-neck with the saddle shoulder... I think that's an Ivy League detail. Not so sure if it's really something the trad. skins were into or not, but I'm keen on it.

    Btw, thanks to whoever mentioned that Dancehall '69 compilation. It's on Spotify and I've had it on repeat for two days.

    :cheers:

    Very Smart,Mate.The Prices are not too bad either.

    I am sure I had a Saddle-Shoulder Jumper,but it was years after the Skinheads.

    Interesting, this renewed debate about JS and his wares. I see it has got everyone very excited over on Talk Ivy. I am enjoying just being a spectator there and assume james is browniecj using a nom de plume.

    I must admit to only rarely shopping at JS shops from around 1971 up to the mid 80s when he opened in Covent Garden and when the 80s pursuit of 'authentic' brands called me back.

    My recollection when it comes to the authenticity of his late 60s offerings, is really that we were not anywhere near as concerned as brownie about the provenance of his shoes and clothes. The Look was what we were after and we were prepared to pay the premiums demanded. As has been said many times, the skinhead was very selective about which items he obtained from JS anyway. It was mainly shoes and shirts but later for me, gabardine trousers too (in late 1970).

    :) Yes that is me!!

    What I trying to say was,that in the 60s,the Ivy Shop was using misleading Promotions.Do not forget I was 16 when I first started using the Shop.Some of the Comments have come from People-who have forgotten what they thought at that Age.I just continued with the fact that I was finding cheaper alternatives-Royals etc.To be honest,the reason why I have not gone into any John Simons Shops since-is to do with Economics.I find things on the Net and I still look around.Simple.

    By `69,the Ivy Shop was off my Radar.It had got expensive.I have been vilified by saying that John Simons did not care for Skinheads.But they were his main Customers,or a majority of them.Whenever I have worked in a Shop,I have learnt "Never Judge A Book By Its Cover".
