Talking of which was at a vintage car rally today. Largely 1950s and American but with some nice European and British vehicles in there too. Most of the folk involved dress accordingly so although often not my style it is nice to see people make the effort and do it 'proper' with the right gear to match the car. However there was a bloke walking around clearly very into it all with a wool hat, a denim jacket, half mast cargo pants and trainers. Under his arm was an Elvis CD box set bought from one of the traders there I'm sure. Nothing wrong with any of that as he was harmless and clearly very enthused by it all but then he came over to see my pals vintage 1969 Lancia. He nodded at us both and we both were taken aback with his Target badge with the words 'A WAY OF LIFE' emblazoned across it. Bonkers.

Good story Martin . .aye , bonkers right enough. . :o

Back on topic, I'd wear the top two, but not the third one. Looks to me like something Bucks Fizz might have worn!!!  ;)

Wow, Bucks Fizz! I didn't remembered that lot. Fortunately memory is selective  ;D. I admit that the diagonal stripe is riskier, doc, but I think I'd wear the third top anyway.

I've just noticed some of the replies are actually bucks fizz song titles, weird coincidence.

I may have got away with wearing those 30 years ago but Now Those Days Are Gone
