Provenance

Mick Tighe must have bought these breeches back in the early 1970's as he's actually wearing them in the picture opposite which was taken in Norway in 1976. Breeches were the 'in thing' back then, but have faded into history 40 years later, full leg length trousers having become the norm. Not sure what the proper name of the material is, but we called it moleskin, much preferring it to the itchy woollen variety.
