Leaders of Men part 16 Joe Orton

Known to most for his brilliant playwriting  little has been said for Joe Ortons personal style.
In particular his use of the turnup.  Seen in these shots taken outside his pad on Noel Road Islington N1 in 66 he adopts an almost 50's greaser image with a crisp white t , baseball boots and giant turnups on a pre shrunk pair of 501 xx showing off the selvedge in all it's glory. Quite unusual for the time i reckon.
