Bought my ex Mrs some of these from Open in Liverpool. Must have been 04/05? Think I got her a Paul Frank(?) monkey tshirt at the same time Laughing out loud

Glory days in Liverpool around that time though. Drome, Microzine, Dapper, Ricci. Bold street was unreal.

Had to have a dig around and found these, purchased from Minky in Brighton in 2003. The hem in about 10 inches.

Dupe was a cool label, bit too madchester at times but the custom wacky riri zips and goretex they used hasn't been matched by any UK brand since.

Yeah attic, pure man, Harley clothing (rip)and Kafka were my go to places. At this time Kafka sold stuff like prada Paul smith and Burberry so had to go elsewhere for more unusual brands

Remember most of the brands in this thread. Cool

Mid 80's Northeast schoolkids - back end of mod turning to the 'joey' culture (may have been a Teeside thing) = Gabicci, Sta press, Spencers, grandad collar shirts, Fred Perry, Lyle & Scott, Ocean Pacific, Fila trackies, Ellesse/Kappa ski Jackets. One of the comps had no uniform, remember Farah hopsacks, Lacoste polos, pair of pods and a Patrick windbreaker from Bill Gates….jumpers for goalposts…
