    The Berets was a left-over from the Mod Days-cannot remember seeing them later,in the 60s though.



    The original Blue with two white Stripes(about the mid 60s)Jackets were referred to as "Blue Beat" Jackets.The name of Monkey Jackets, I cannot recall when that started.



    Definitely American-though smartish.:)

    Just to confuse matters....I recall them being refererred to as Ski jackets!
    Later on one of the lads returned from London with a leather jacket of similar style that he called a Bomber (from Take 6 I think?)
    So my conclusion is that there were many regional terms.

    Ah, I remember, one dinner time (or lunch, if you prefer) :embar: in '69, bunking off ftrom school with a great lad - and very tidy skinhead - Phil (Pogger) Brown, and going to Cowan's Cycles on Hyde Road, Gorton, to buy one each.

    Definitely less than a nicker, we had to go back later as they had sold out. :happy:

    Him and I had some great adventures following United, but trips - hitching it - across to Sheffield, Northampton and Halifax (cup) games really stick in my mind.

    I'll post of what we did at a later date. :satisfied:

    Hei, I have just read through all the posts you wrote, very good and brings back a lot of memories.
    I hope there are still some of my old mates from the 'Never' who remember me, I can think of a few more names that were not in your stories and a lot of girls too.
    best regards Hilbron Runde

    Savile Row do nice Oxford cloth shirts. But dont have a sewn in pleat. Always go a size lower though as they come up big.

    If your reffering to The Never in Bristol". Chris Brown is on here from Bristol who wrote the Bovver book.

    On the note of Monkey/surfer jackets, we always reffered to them as Bomber jackets. It was only later we realised that the bomber jacket was the early flight jackets that had a similar, if only slightly, design. Any zip up jacket without a collar was reffered to as a bomber jacket around our way growing up.

    Had my monthly stroll in H&M, found these trousers, quite cheap (about 20€). Bought two pairs, reminds me of some of those seen in Page 3 in this thread.
