Think we can all agree that Jack was a wonderful man and gave us a lot of pleasure :Hat:

I'd go along with that Paul.
I think in truth I failed to appreciate him at the time...I was a teenager and motorbikes and girls had beckoned, but right now it's the best thing on my TV. Not an episode has gone by that I haven't realised I've learned something new.

I'm with you Nobby. When How was on I think I saw him as a bit of a dodderer but age brings a realisation that you were late to cherish some of the special things. Obviously not the 'fashion' of the 70's but I expect SK will be scouring the charity shops in time for the next fish-in after all, he's got that pullover :doh:

According to The Guardian at least all that 70s stuff is on the way back http://www.theguardian.com/fashion/2015 ... aris-milan. So you'd better get down to the Oxfam shop right now before all the fashionistas descend and pick it clean. Now I wonder where I put those black velvet loons I had back in 1974............

I wonder if loons will come back? I used to get my Mother, a seamstress by trade, to cut open my trousers and insert strips to make them into 'flares'.

In 1970's London you couldn't get a suit made with straight legs....loons and flares took over so much. Years later I was back at the same tailor's getting the legs cut straight.....


I can't recall Jack wearing a pair, though.....

As to SK's clothing......I don't know if he's caught up to the Seventies yet. If he grows long curly hair, wears a kaftan and calls everyone 'Man' this year, then he has!

peace.
