    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I was after a chunky waffle knit cardigan but didn't want to spend allot as I generally layer with sleeveless jumpers (in Southern Cali its hotter then hell 9 months out of the year). As stated, Mikkel & a few others offer those, but they can be pricey. So I took McDermott's advice from page 343 of this thread, researched the label and found it at Viper London on sale for £19.99. "Like" Viper on facebook and they send you a first purchase 20% off code. Ended up grabbing two (black & burgundy) for £31 total.

    As McDermott stated before, switch out the cheap/fake plastic buttons for real leather football ones & its good to go (about £6 to replace all 5 buttons). Be advised: The cost is low on these due to the buttons & acrylic so your not getting quality wool if that is a concern. Also: These do not have pockets. On sizing: My chest is 41-42" & I normally wear fitted gear so I went with size "M" and the fit is dead on, -no stretching & isn't see-through at that size, sits on the hips/is waisted.

    Quoting McDermott's size advice that is dead on: "I have the burgandy, size L, and the pit to pit is 23'', so bearing in mind that they are stretchy too, id say that was quite big sizing. Id say go by what you usually are (M,L,Xl etc) if you want a slightly baggier version (like you see popular with 80s skins) and a size down if you want more fitted. im a 42 and the L fits me nicely (little baggy, fair bit of room but very oldschool looking)."

    Pendleton is having quite a sale and they have virgin wool cardigans with pockets, faux-leather football buttons, etc. For those unfamiliar, Pendleton is a quality American brand who inspired the Beach Boys to originally name themselves the Pendletones. Sadly, this cardigan isn't American-made, but it's $74-$108 in price range, depending on color. Not waffle material, but nice and chunky-looking:

    Although not the quality they were in years past(who is really) I would still put the quality of their non-usa made stuff up against plenty of brands appearing nowadays that cost 3 times more.

    No mate, that's not one of our lot, I found that on another site, no other info. other than the year unfortunately.

    Great photos, the top Yarmouth one looks very similar to one of M.o.M's, same pose!

    In the bottom pic, to the left, there's a girl with white socks on. I know these were fashionable at the time, but would Skinhead girls have worn them?

    Apologies if we have talked about these before but I'm a pervy old git

    The b & w photo of the lad on the Lammy is all wrong - they've stuck his head onto somebody else's body!

    Not really my cup of tea, but Matalan are doing a leather Chukka Boot for £30. I only wear black shoes myself, and I'm definitely not in a hurry to go back inside my local Matalan.

    Why go to the extreme of Photoshopping a face, yet leave the Attire (and the Lambretta) so bad??. Too much time on their hands perhaps. Excellent Shots otherwise.
