Dependin' oan the topics covered The Chap kin be a decent read - if a wee bit pricey.

Need tae be able tae ignore aw the fannies dressed up as characters fae Ealing Comedies that infest its pages tho'.

I've got a couple of Britac shirts and I like them. The fabric is lightweight but they are well made. Their website is a bit hard to navigate through quickly but the variety of colours are really good. Well worth a visit imo.

Aye the colours are good which is whit made me consider them in the first place.

Like ah said only quotin' reviews ah'd read before but interestin' tae hear a different opinion fae somebody oan here.

Whit is the sizin' like mate?

By far the worst must be the fat auld blokes at northern soul do's that insist oan wearin' a semmit teamed up wi' oxford bag troosers, (usually at half mast).

Mibbe in thir ain heids they ur still the supple king ay the dance floor, but in reality........

I'd agree and I think fellas like us are the cause of it! When I was a kid blokes over say 40 were like proper 'grown up men' and anyone over 50 was ' an old geezer' both groups potential pipe smokers and cardigan wearers.  However now blokes of those sort of age groups are still on scooters, going to gigs and getting beered up, fighting at football matches, trying to wear skinny jeans or tracksuits, Snap Chatting, Facebooking and all the rest of the stuff that we see across our nation. When I was a kid in the 60s and 70s we would likely have been dozing in an armchair, pottering around in the garden or bird-watching or something. Things have changed for sure.

Smokin' a pipe never stopped Popeye the Sailor Man fae fightin'.

Oan the subject ay the Britain shirts ah've considered them in the past, but read some terrible reviews ay them sayin' the cloth is awfy flimsy.

Do you mean Britac ? I have never heard anyone mention the quality of them before which led me to believe they wurnae that gid. .

Aye Britac - wis oan an iPad wi' that autocorrect nonsense installed.

A couple of minutes of late 60s Carnaby Street. The thing I found interesting about this clip was the quality, it felt more contemporary and didnt have that feeling of "then" that one would get with more grainy period footage - for me anyway:

Edit: I wrote this late nght, Ill try again now that Im properly awake: what I meant was that this clip gave an unusually strong feeling of here and now (apart from the music and voiceover)

Must be the only time Status Quo wur ever associated wi' any fashion awards.
