First pair of jeans

Recommended Posts

Who remembers their first pair of jeans, from which Sheffield store and what year?

Would have been 1970, or 1971. I couldn't tell you who made them, designer labels weren't considered back then. But as to where they were bought? I'll give you a 'starter-for-ten'. I tried them on for size in the stockroom, upstairs, above the shop.

Well, I think jeans - where they came from I have no idea. Would have been the winter of 1957 when I was going to Abbey Lane school in short trousers. I know we were bred tough then but it was a great relief to have warm knees. The headmistress made us take them off once in school because one lad played outside in the snow and came in soaking wet, so I had to put them on over my short trousers each day.

Bunney's, Firth Park Terminus, circa 1953.

Circa 1969....a pair of Wranglers bought from Blanchards on Infirmary Road for, I think £3..10s... They were like hardboard for first few weeks, but I did have them for a few years.

Definitely Harringtons in Castle Market 

 

Ditto - tried them on upstairs in the stockroom. Was really pleased with my own first pair of jeans. Did you do likewise?
