Found this in my stuff today circa 1955/56. powder blue jacket and blue 7 inch pegs. My tailor said I would never get them on. And If I dared to walk down the high street wearing them and come into his shop he would give me back the money for them. Well I struggled pulled and tugged and eventually got them on. Uncomfortably I walked down town and into his shop. The Tailor said OK stand there. He called out this guy from the back. Here are those trousers he said. They both had a good laugh. He did refund my money. But the trousers only lasted a couple more wears before I had to let them out but sadly there was not enough material left to let them out enough. I dont remember what happened to them. Ah those were the days. Shortly after that I moved on to motorbikes. But unknown to me at that time was to be a journey that has taken me on for 59 years so far. That one is called Mavis. Her parents called me a Teddy Boy and forbid her to see me.
