Aye Stan. Who didnt go to Burton's or Jackson's in those days? I recall that my first suit was 1959 from Burton's in Jarrow paid for by my mother. I once wore it to school and got a rollicking.....told Claude Norman that I had torn my school uniform in an accident.....but he phoned my Dad who , strangely, didnt recall the incident!!
For me my suits were my uniform. Stiff white collars, studs and all, and properly tied knots, usually a "four in hand" which I tie to this day (for funerals usually). But an occasional Windsor especially in the 70's on those huge kipper ties.
I also used Hepworths in Newcastle for my suits.
It cost a fortune just to do my job!! But I did like to look the business so I always had three of four on the go!!
