    Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    Ooe x Bandanna Almanac... I've been wearing these only an hour a day in the morning and the odd day / evening so definitely slow burners. Hard to tell from the photos but some really lovely blue coming gently through
  5. The Face article on the closure of Oi Polloi in Manchester. Another shop swallowed by JD and subsequently spat out. Though I've not used it in years, it was a good brick and mortar in a cool area (Thomas Street, near Tibb Street). Last time I went around that area, it'd changed a lot since the 90s!
  6. Aye he was now you mention it... and he was telling the coppers he'd have got away if the jeans he bought off eBay weren't so fking tight
  7. ^^ ... and living cheek to jowl with their Sheffield neighbours resulted in further breeding creating the modern day greater Sheffield area Coincidentally Boy Wonder was playing footy in nearby Matlock, of all places, t'other week and the bizzies came into the car park with the game in full flight, surrounded a mini car, hauled out the driver, cuffed him and into the meat wagon he went... then the mini owner turned up saying the kid had hopped in and nicked her mini off her... in sleepy ole Matlock of all places... his name may have been Paul...
  8. Clink from Mr C's pov including the Hacienda at about 10 mins in
  9. We went to Ibiza in the summer of '88, as a coincidence. We were just a gang of lads going on holiday. Once there we went to Ku and were like wtf is going on here then. It was an eye opener. When we got back, there was a night at the State nightclub doing acid house so we started going when we could. It wasn't busy by any stretch and the club was transitioning from goth (The Cure, The Smiths et al) to dance. The DJ (pretty sure Mike Knowler and Andy Carroll) didn't have enough "acid house" records to make it through the night so used to add in Prince, Don Maclean etc and put the acid tunes on repeat. It's all very hazy, though notably Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock were big. There was another place in Liverpool called The Underground (Jon Kelly, James Barton et al) along similar timelines. I went a few times but it never had the vibe of The State, for me, and that was the big draw then. Ditto I never got that vibe from the Hacienda. It was definitely micro micro culture, growing / exploding into 89, then more thereafter every year with the unfortunate mutations following (Vicks, dummies wtf). I say imperfect storm as it was a juncture between 6th form and thereafter and a big long summer of mischief that was all by chance...
  10. Chesterfield is part of the Sheffield connurbation isn't it?
  11. The Hacienda has a disproportionate amount of acclaim for its role in the acid house scene. It definitely played an important part but the part has grown over time proportionate to the media narrative. I went quite a bit early 90s - and when Maynard posts his first WAYWT pic, I might even be able to say if I saw him at the back in Dry at that time . I loved Graeme Park's tunes then and still listen to his sets now, especially the 90s ones on MixCloud. However, from my pov, nothing could ever get close to the total madness that was The State in Liverpool in the summer of '89. It was an imperfect storm. OK so maybe the Quadrant Park in '90 did get close. It's all pov as no doubt those in London will say Shoom, Blackburn Set End etc etc... for those caught in the eye of the storm, it's wherever you were that was the place that set it all alight

    What about Jeans Jackets ....

    Same experience as ATWM with the same jacket - no issues to report with denim and flannel shrinkage. My first wash was 30C, second wash was 40C which gave greater shrink on the jacket overall and never had any inner flannel lining issues

    @UkeNo Really helpful mate - thank you... Plus that colour looks so good after only a few washes... I'll look forward to that, lovely! So, even though a 42 would work for sure, I found a 44 and went for that... it'll be more voluminous but I like a nice drop shoulder and perhaps it'll be more in keeping with the intended style on me... however I'll find that out soon... thanks Sufu folks for your help <insert thumbs up emoji>

    Yeah I think chest would be the constraining factor on the size 42 in this hoody I know it's hard to accurately evaluate fit purely from the measurements However I have a Butcher Products sweatshirt with a drop shoulder to compare + I know the drop from the shoulder to the pit seam on the FW Hence if I can get a washed pit-to-pit size on the 42... then I'll be able to say yay or nay mate
