Remember well the fashion of the 70's with the maxi skirts and tops and platform shoes. But the wallpaper and carpets as well, they could give you a headache just looking at the patterns. A lovely photograph to look back on. ( despite the flared trousers and patterned tie!). ;o))
I like the tie Keith, it matches your wife's skirt and the wallpaper.But you do go a bit dizzy.
Nice one Keith, i've been there and got the T shirt re the flares and tie etc. It's a European tie, not American, how can you tell ? No Googleing !!
KEITH, did you see my final comment on the Dave Bolton photo ?
Thanks Roy. I may well have bought the tie in Germany, I spent quite a lot of time there in those days. On one trip to Hanover the flight was diverted to Bremen. It was late one Sunday evening. Fortunately BA paid for a taxi for the 75 mile trek to Hanover but lost my suitcase. I had to go out clothes shopping the following day. The case arrived back at home 2 months later.
I don’t know how to tell the difference in the origin of the tie. However, the answer may be interesting.
I did see you final comment re Dave Bolton. I knew he had been suffering a while from dementia, I used to get a regular update from Bev’s sister in law Beryl.
Hi Keith, on a European striped tie the stripes go from the left shoulder to right waist whereas the American one is from the right shoulder to left waist, i believe there is a military history involved.
Keith The stripes on UK and European ties allow from (your) left to right. US ties allow in the opposite direction.
