FCK sake ....bennies for 50p and Sta Prest for 2 quid .......thems were the days, youd be lucky to find anything like that these days ......Ebay occasionally but everyone is so tuned in they know the prices and what people will pay ......

I used to hang around with a mate in the 90s who boxed for Hoxton, a big leyton orient fan ......good little club, trained there once, more as a keep fit as I worked in Curtain Road/Great Eastern Street in a leather factory over that way ....I dont think they were too keen to have you train though when they found out I didnt want to box for them ....good job for them really I had sponsorship on the soles of me boots I spent so much time on me arse on the canvas emoticon

Kev

I was using the equivalent of todays prices etc... the shops couldnt wait to get rid of them, old stock taking up room, the jeans shop in Upper Street had hundreds of buttons downs (jaytex, bens, stradbrookes, brutus, jon wood etc) and would also do deals if you took quite a few.... know what you mean now on ebay, Callum still gets some good ones but some of the vintage shirts are going for £60-90 each....

As for Boxing, trained at both the Lion Club and [sign in to see URL], but didnt fight (got into karate and aikido instead), but a few of my mates did

Re: A couple of photos from 77 and 78


I've got a couple from the summer of 78 on a lads holiday to Benidorm (about 15 of my mates/cousins went, we'd spent most of the summer holiday digging out a swimming pool in someones back garden in Chart Street, Hoxton, to get the money)...I'm in sta-prest, bens, loafers etc with a suedehead cut and they'll all in fiorucci jeans and perms - all bloody soulies... I stuck out like a sore thumb!! Got back just in time to make it to see Sham at the Reading Festival.....
