Bill, do you remember this snazzy tie?

And if so, do you still have it/wear it?

Is it a peacock-plume pattern that's on it?

Gosh, haven't seen that photo' before, alec. Nice one! And, yes, I still have that tie. It's by designer Margaret Howell...one of my facourite clothes designers, even to this day, (though she wasn't quite so well known back when I bought the tie.) :wink:

Bill had such a cool style in the 80s! When I first looked up the wikipedia it had a picture with the blonde hair and all! 8)

It's a cool pic that's for sure.

Bill Nelson and Steve Jansen look more like brothers in this photo, than Steve and David.. :shock:

Women in my life have been texting me images of her designs.

They're quite timeless for both women and men, hers, which is not surprising.

Please post us a colour photo of the tie? :lol: 8)

The three look famille to mine eyes .... but maybe it's the shades, partly?

Also, Dave appears to have on ripped shirt ? :shock:

Perhaps it's a vent built in (near right shoulder).

Seems an happy occasion.

Yes, that's obviously part of the similarity, but I was looking more at the slightly side-on profile of Bill and Steve, both their chiselled jaw lines and chin shape, their high cheek bones, similar noses and general facial structure, which, in this picture at least, look uncannily similar..just how the shutter caught it :wink:

David looks rather thin and frail in this shot, but it's a really cool shot and one that I haven't seen before.. 8)

Yeah I see what you mean, especially when I isolate Steve and Bill from the others. :)

Bill, do you remember what the occasion was?

That looks quite a bit like one of David's photo collages framed in the background.

Could it be the "Perspectives" exhibition at Hamilton's Gallery?

If so it's interesting that Mick was there! 8)

The timeline is down to when Bill got the Margaret Howell tie. :)
