    I recall we wore mainly fine knit / lambs wool ? and the pockets were a must on the cardigans. Very casual and usful item of clothing as you would stuff your hands in your pockets to look cool and when on the move you had your fags and Zippo in the pocket. Theres a thought beside the Zippo we started off with the old army metal flint lighters - gas ones were too expensive so we tended to smell of Brut and lighter fuel. Thats it - we were always trying to obtain a Ronson gas lingter or a Dunhill would be the tops

    There used to be a little grocers shop that sold single Woodbines and an "Offy" that you took an empty Cider bottle in and get filled with draught sherry.It was all downhill for a few years after that !

    There was a similar shop I knew in Sunderland - took a Brown Ale bottle in and got a pint of sherry for a quid (in '86, at the tender non-sherry drinking age of 15). Drank it on the way to a party. Spent most of the night passed out on the bathroom floor. Don't think I've drank sherry since.
    (not so) Happy Days!

    It's always that way with Musicians browniecj.Early 60's Dylan was doing folk music from the 20's.The British bands were doing British Music Hall.And some American Pop (Harry Nilsson)was doin American Vaudeville.As long as they learn from the "Good" stuff.

    Basically, if an old bloke was wearing it, it was old bloke's gear. If we were wearing it, it wasn't. I honestly think it was as simple as that.

    I never had a problem with their slogan. I couldn't abide the 'look' at the time.
