    Makes sense because no other school would have the same uniform, but I bet a mile off that others could see that they weren't brand new - ironic that uniform makes people equal and so one would think that it wouldn't happen.

    • Trisha and Justine looked great in their uniforms, and ironically, Justine looked more grown up in hers! Probably because the class of 1988 was more liberalised and grown up than the class of 1978.

      Boys' school uniform sans school badge looked like an adult man's business suit only for a smaller person, and so I suppose that boys wouldn't have much to say about it - when they left school and gone to university, etc, they probably would have become successful in life such as become a businessman, an MP or a Chief Executive where they would have had to wear something that resembles a blazer or jacket, trousers and tie anyway. A woman in the same situation would not have worn something that resembled a girls' school uniform for obvious reasons - the fact of the matter is that females change more between childhood and adulthood than males do and that is more than apparent in this instance.

          And you never got round to burning it? (which seemed to be a tradition on the last day of school).

          • I read over the weekend about some schoolboy who wore his sister's skirt to school because of the hot weather and the fact that boys could only wear trousers which in this instance, was too hot in order to wear them (talk about hot pants!) Shorts were not permitted either (to be honest, I would rather wear trousers rather than shorts in any case, even in hot weather). The irony was that this was in Scotland where the kilt has been traditional for centuries, although not as part of school uniform!

            Surely, that sort of thing didn't go on in our day, did it?

              Yep. Primary school 60s and early 70s - grey shorts all year round, grey knee socks which slipped down to the ankles, shirt, tie, cap. Secondary school basically the same formal style except shorts replaced by long trousers, and no cap. One boy wore shorts to secondary school from 11-13 - the only boy in the school to do so. White shorts for PE and dark blue footy shorts though think I got away with a pair of lighter blue nylon footy shorts higher up the school. Woe betide if you wore your coloured football shorts to PE lessons!

                Plus of course the school blazer at both schools

                  None specifically. Not sure why I wore light blue football shorts to be honest. I don't support Chelsea.

                  Even in the 6th form a couple of lads were in trouble for wearing coloured football socks to PE. They were lucky to get let off with a warning not to wear them again instead of getting the slipper which they would have got in earlier years.

                    True but I always tried to pick the battles I could win (or say things like I picked up my Football Team Shorts by mistake that morning) or others are doing Football Teams one or my PE 1s was not clean/been washed in time!

                    The PE teachers at my schools had heard all the excuses!

                      Yeah they were both lads who played on the school teams so that was probably why they were let off a slippering!

                        I bet did you wear your Tie thin side out mate??
                        Don't think so. I hope you didn't wear trainers instead of proper black shoes?! You'd have been in trouble.......
