    Thanks for the info elwood.Remember seeing a few blokes in old Football footage and wondered what they was up to(thought they was butchers just off work)Watched "Going Straight" Now watching "Clarence" "Two Ronnies" will be next.

    We have butchers coats here in the US Elwood, but wearing them to sporting events has never been a thing. Clever and I imagine they got the point across!:happy:

    Beat me to it Bassett,M&S do great Cardigans-saw some Sleeveless (with Pockets the other day).Not my size though.Also their 3 Button Merino Wool Polo Jumpers are comfortable to wear(similar to John Smedleys-but half the Price).I know it is more Mod than Skinhead.:)

    This was a very short Fad,in the early 70s-did not last long though.


    Back in the 60s,loved wearing Sleeveless Pullovers.I had them in a variety of Colours.Also the Thin Lambswool Jumpers were good with Jeans or Cords.I only had one thick Chunky Cardigan(with the old Football Style Buttons on),in Rust Colour I think.I was lucky to pick up a couple of Sleeveless Chunky Cardigans(Deadstock) about a year ago-in Navy and Wine.I think they look alright with Trousers or Jeans.Never really caught on in the 60s though.:)

    Seen a Pair of Check Levis being Auctioned on Ebay.The Seller states they are 60s.I do not remember seeing them,but it could be possible they slipped under the Radar.Sorry I cannot put the Link up-still coming to terms with switching the Computer on!!!!!!
