Something weird happened to Flip. I think the one in Covent Garden changed its name to ‘Phlip’ to avoid copyright infringement but there was one in Newcastle up from the station that carried on as ‘Flip’ for several more years. I heard it had moved round the corner to a much smaller upstairs location a few years ago and it’s probably gone dark now.

And then there was ‘Strip’ in the now defunct Kensington Market where I once got a vintage charcoal self stripe suit that I wore for ages. Their stock in trade was taking vintage jackets and chopping them down to make Terence Trent D’Arby style short stewards’ style jackets. This lasted for a minute when that look was in. The vintage clothes market must be a hard sell these days.

If anything the vintage market is bigger than ever I would say. Vintage seems to be cool for the everyday Joe on the street now. Don't think that was the case back when Flip and the like were on it.

Simon,

The Glasgow Flip stores were called Flip @ Metro and Flip of Hollywood as I remember it. Can you remember there was a small one near the old Candleriggs market back in the 80's?

If ye wur a gentleman ye wid huv bought it anyway and posted it tae Becky to wear over her jammies so she kin keep warm.

I honestly doubt Becky'll get cold with all her coats; in fact, I'm sure she's even got more jumpers than me!  :-\

Today we had around 29c , which was too hot even for the trains , which went off . It was even too hot for a thin polo shirt , definitely taps aff Wednesday . .unheard of in these climes , l blame the World Cup. .😀😬😂

29c? Winter weather around these parts

Yeah , goodness knows what it will be like when summer finally turns up . .


I don't understand you brits, always complaining about the weather. I thought you were fed up with rain and cold! Meanwhile, down here thermometers don't get lower than 19-20 ºC and that won't change till at least september. Tropical nights anyone? Get ready for Madrid, Woody.

I've been installing disabled ramps all week in the baking sun....totally exhausted!

Would not like to be doing my job in sunnier countries that's for sure.

Looking forward to Madrid GS....many thanks again for your input my friend.

Really enjoyed the Swiss/Serbia game.

Good to see teams not playing negatively. The Brazil tournament was ruined by defensive football,pleasantly surprised at the quality and the approach of most teams,Argentina apart who have been shocking.

Quite fancy Argentina!


Are you serious!?!? The thing that amazes me most about Argentina and their shambolic world cup matches is the reaction of argentinian folks, they have mastered the art of swearing to levels unknown in spanish up till now, you wouldn't believe it!

  ;D ;D
