Oi! Nooooooooo!


I read in the paper the other day that "flares are making a comeback". Again? Did people learn nothing from the 1970s trousers wars? Here are some photos why flares should never, EVER, be worn again.

Ah presume yer referin tae the Brian May/Motorheid groupy in the foregroond, as you can clearly see that both Lorne and Mrs Det are wearing trousers of average flariness. Well below european regulations in fact.

Unfortunately, I haven't the foggiest who is in the photo. It came in a box of photos I inherited. As to the locus, isn't it just behind where the old Salvation Army used to be? It must be from a Fair because, apart from the coconut the guy has, there are other photos in the batch from about the same era in the Viewforth carpark. I have tonnes of these anonymous photos.
