We (Cardiff) started to wear labels around 1980-81, places like Wigan and Leeds had already started wearing them. My first designer clothes were Lacoste polo and adidas Wimbledon trainers and that was about 1981 :thumbright:

I was at all the West Ham home & away games over the three years 1978-1980, absolutely mental at Upton Park. First year we took 800 fans, 2nd year 200 fans on a Saturday as well (by the end of the game just 60 of us left in ground)and 3rd year midweek only 25 of us were there.


Aberdeen and Hearts were the first two main Scottish clubs to wear casual clothes.

Rangers years on, Celtic not many ever did.

Spot on but I’ve seen Aberdeen fans claim it was a visit to Liverpool that changed how they dressed at matches.

American airforce MA-1 jackets. I had one, late 70’s. The real McCoy, not a copy. I wore it to death. Wore it to a West Ham away midweek game (24/11/79), I was in the West Ham end, very quiet, but I blended in well.

Used to be a great trip for Rangers in 70s, we’d go to a night club after the match and buses didn’t leave till 1 on the Sunday Morning. Now it’s bussed in and straight out after FT.

I used to go up to Liverpool a lot in the very late seventies and early eighties with a mate who was a big Everton fan. Loved the look they sported then leather Hunter jackets Israeli parkas sking jumpers wedge haircuts when lads back home were still in double denim and dock Martin's.

Walking into the so called away end at Upton Park in late 79 was an eye opener; a few hundred city fans and loads of east end geezers. Horrible experience
