-Tonight, I'll go back to the 1980s

0:00:020:00:06

-I'll also hear how colour influences

-the wardrobe of Linda Jones.

0:00:070:00:12

-We begin in Cardiff

-with Alwyn Humphreys's obsession.

0:00:130:00:17

0:00:430:00:45

-I don't need any more shirts -

-and I keep telling myself that.

0:00:480:00:52

-But if you see something you like,

-where's the harm in that?

0:00:530:00:57

-Alwyn Humphreys is a broadcaster

-and a choir conductor.

0:01:030:01:07

-He's in the public eye,

-so it's lucky he loves clothes.

0:01:070:01:11

-Is your wardrobe dominated

-by a particular item of clothing?

0:01:190:01:24

-Yes.

-Shirts are very important to me.

0:01:240:01:27

-I remember a shop opening in Bangor.

0:01:270:01:30

-It was called Horesh

-and it was completely different.

0:01:300:01:34

-I was around 14 years old...

0:01:340:01:36

-..and I remember looking at

-Ben Sherman shirts in the shop.

0:01:360:01:40

-That was the first time

-I came across the name Ben Sherman.

0:01:410:01:45

-A turquoise shirt caught my eye.

0:01:450:01:47

-It had a peaked collar.

0:01:470:01:49

-I thought to myself,

-"Oh! I'd love to wear that shirt."

0:01:490:01:53

-I couldn't afford it, of course.

0:01:530:01:55

-I saved up until, one day, I could

-go to the shop and buy the shirt.

0:01:560:02:00

-That was my first thrill.

0:02:000:02:02

-Since then, shirts have held a

-fascination for me - and ties, too.

0:02:020:02:07

-I do realise my obsession

-with shirts is some sort of disease.

0:02:210:02:26

-I admit it

-and I think that's important.

0:02:280:02:30

-I once tried to get rid of

-some shirts but it was too painful.

0:02:310:02:35

-My heart bled at the thought

-of getting rid of some of them.

0:02:360:02:40

-That left me with a stark choice.

0:02:410:02:43

-I could either be like an alcoholic,

-buying shirts rather than bottles...

0:02:430:02:47

-..and hiding them around the house

-behind wardrobes and under beds.

0:02:470:02:53

-Either I could do that,

-and allow my problem to escalate...

0:02:540:02:58

-..or I could say to myself,

-"I can't do this any more."

0:02:590:03:03

-That's exactly what I did.

0:03:030:03:06

-I have to iron,

-every now and then...

0:03:070:03:11

-..but I can go for six months

-without ironing a single shirt.

0:03:120:03:17

-That's if I dip into my collection.

0:03:180:03:20

-This is a Versace shirt.

0:03:430:03:45

-It's a denim shirt.

0:03:450:03:46

-Look at this detail.

0:03:480:03:50

-It's a button-down

-but half-concealed.

0:03:500:03:53

-I love that sort of detail.

0:03:530:03:55

-The pocket is the same.

0:03:560:03:58

-Next, we come to Tommy Hilfiger.

0:03:590:04:01

-I love the details around the collar

-on this shirt.

0:04:020:04:05

-I like that.

0:04:060:04:08

-Does it make you worry about me?

0:04:080:04:10

-Does it make you worry about me?

-

-Yes. I do worry about you!

0:04:100:04:12

-I'm trying to hide my concerns!

0:04:140:04:16

-I bought

-this Ben Sherman shirt recently.

0:04:170:04:20

-I haven't worn it, yet.

0:04:200:04:22

-Look at the detail

-around the buttons.

0:04:250:04:28

-Isn't that unusual?

0:04:280:04:30

-I kept this label intentionally.

0:04:310:04:33

-There's a picture

-of Ben Sherman on it...

0:04:330:04:36

-..and it includes

-some notes about him.

0:04:370:04:39

-He was known as the Mod God

-in the late 1950s.

0:04:400:04:43

-He became the king of trend

-in Carnaby Street.

0:04:440:04:48

-There you go.

0:04:480:04:50

-You should buy a scooter and make

-a Welsh version of Quadrophenia!

0:04:500:04:56

-These are my formal shirts.

0:05:090:05:11

-I wear them for concerts.

0:05:110:05:13

-When people see you on stage

-with a Come to Jesus collar...

0:05:130:05:18

-..they assume it's a plain shirt.

0:05:180:05:21

-That's not the case with this shirt.

0:05:210:05:23

-My wife bought it for me.

0:05:240:05:25

-I apologise

-if people are shocked by this.

0:05:260:05:29

-Take a look at the pictures

-printed on the back of this shirt.

0:05:290:05:33

-Some very loving elephants.

0:05:340:05:36

-I can't remove my jacket

-at a concert with this on my back.

0:05:370:05:41

-The public never suspects

-I'm wearing something like this!

0:05:410:05:45

-This shirt is far busier

-than people suspect, too.

0:05:470:05:50

-You only see the plain front,

-under a jacket.

0:05:500:05:54

-I like it because it includes

-the names of places I've visited.

0:05:540:05:58

-Places like Sydney and New York.

0:05:580:06:01

-I've only ever worn this shirt once.

0:06:010:06:04

-This section is terribly stiff.

0:06:040:06:06

-It feels starched.

0:06:070:06:09

-When I conducted the choir,

-the whole thing moved with my body.

0:06:100:06:14

-There's no flexibility there.

0:06:140:06:17

-It's possible this shirt has seen

-its one and only concert.

0:06:170:06:21

-# CWM RHONDDA #

0:06:250:06:27

-When I first wore tails, some of

-the choir members' wives complained.

0:06:410:06:45

-They declared that

-they couldn't see my rear end!

0:06:450:06:49

-I hadn't realised that being able

-to see a conductor's rear end...

0:06:490:06:53

-..is so important for women.

0:06:530:06:55

-I had no idea my rear end was more

-of an attraction than other things.

0:06:550:06:59

-I stopped wearing tails for a while

-to appease the wives.

0:07:000:07:04

-They were mature ladies, rather than

-young ladies, unfortunately.

0:07:050:07:09

-The pin-removing ceremony

-gives me tremendous pleasure.

0:07:110:07:15

-I love the feel of a new shirt.

0:07:160:07:18

-I also love the smell of it.

0:07:180:07:20

-Isn't it wonderful?

0:07:220:07:23

-It will never be the same again.

-Its new career begins here.

0:07:240:07:29

-This is the first day

-of the rest of its life.

0:07:290:07:32

-Who knows where it will go

-during its lifetime.

0:07:320:07:36

-It gives me immense pleasure

-to open the packaging...

0:07:390:07:42

-..and wear a new shirt

-for the first time.

0:07:430:07:45

-Can you describe

-how you feel about your clothes?

0:07:580:08:02

-When I wear a new shirt for the

-first time, it makes me feel good.

0:08:040:08:09

-I feel more confident.

0:08:090:08:11

-I'm quite a shy person.

0:08:120:08:14

-Many people can't fathom it

-but I really am shy.

0:08:140:08:17

-I must battle against

-my inner demons to be sociable...

0:08:180:08:22

-..and to be confident

-about meeting new people.

0:08:230:08:27

-Clothes help, in that respect.

0:08:270:08:30

-People come up to me and say...

0:08:310:08:33

-.."I love your tie.

-Where did you get it?"

0:08:330:08:36

-Or,

-"Oh! Where did you get that shirt?"

0:08:360:08:39

-Wearing nice clothes which fit you

-well and which are comfortable...

0:08:400:08:45

-..gives you a good feeling.

0:08:450:08:47

-It gives you confidence even though

-you might be lacking in confidence.

-Mefys Jones is a teacher

-and she lives on Anglesey.

0:09:110:09:15

-She loves clothes

-and she's a real hoarder.

0:09:150:09:18

-Clothes from one decade...

0:09:180:09:20

-..are very close to her heart.

0:09:200:09:23

-The 1980s are important to me.

0:09:250:09:27

-Youngsters find their own identity

-in their high school years.

0:09:270:09:32

-You develop your own style

-during your high school years.

0:09:320:09:36

-Mam no longer chose my clothes -

-I was free to choose what I wore.

0:09:370:09:42

-What sparked off your interest

-in clothes, Mefys?

0:09:470:09:51

-I think

-it stemmed from my childhood.

0:09:510:09:54

-I was an only child.

0:09:540:09:56

-I was taken from shop to shop

-by my mother.

0:09:560:09:59

-Mam was very fond of clothes.

0:10:000:10:02

-I received things like Cindy dolls

-as Christmas presents.

0:10:020:10:07

-I also received

-extra outfits for her.

0:10:080:10:11

-I would choose the doll's clothes.

0:10:130:10:15

-As youngsters, my friends and I

-bounced fashion ideas around.

0:10:150:10:20

-We would also try to copy

-whoever we saw on the television.

0:10:210:10:26

-We were influenced by pop stars.

0:10:260:10:28

-Duran Duran was my favourite band

-and Madonna was my favourite artist.

0:10:350:10:40

-Madonna frequently changed her look

-and she summed up the 1980s.

0:10:410:10:45

-How did your clothes connect with

-your experiences in the 1980s?

0:10:510:10:56

-I wore the late-1980s suits

-when I was in the sixth form...

0:10:580:11:02

-..and at college.

0:11:020:11:03

-I wore a suit every single weekend.

0:11:040:11:07

-I'm sure people looked at me

-in my suit and were baffled by it.

0:11:090:11:14

-The clothes were expensive.

0:11:160:11:18

-I wouldn't spend that much

-on clothes today...

0:11:190:11:22

-..even though

-I'm still fond of clothes.

0:11:220:11:25

-I was working and felt

-I deserved that sort of perk.

0:11:250:11:30

-Other people spent their wages

-differently from me...

0:11:300:11:34

-..but, in those days, clothes

-were my number one priority.

0:11:340:11:38

-I've lived through the 1970s, 1980s,

-the 1990s and the current times.

0:11:410:11:46

-The 1980s was my favourite

-decade, without a doubt.

0:11:460:11:50

-Let's start over here.

0:11:540:11:55

-Green leather.

0:11:550:11:57

-I went to the Anglesey Show

-every year.

0:11:570:12:00

-My grandparents took me to the show

-when I was 14...

0:12:000:12:04

-..and I remember seeing this jacket.

0:12:050:12:07

-I went home

-and started to hatch a plan...

0:12:070:12:10

-..to persuade my parents

-to buy it for me.

0:12:100:12:14

-It was quite expensive.

0:12:160:12:17

-I came up with a great excuse -

-my aunt's wedding!

0:12:180:12:21

-I told my parents the jacket

-would be perfect for it.

0:12:210:12:25

-My parents were kind enough

-to buy this for me.

0:12:260:12:29

-Baggy, knee-length shorts

-were typical of the 1980s.

0:12:400:12:44

-The shorts weren't enough for me.

0:12:440:12:46

-I had to buy the shirt

-and the trousers.

0:12:470:12:49

-The same thing applies

-to this collection.

0:12:490:12:53

-There's a shirt.

0:12:570:12:59

-A waistcoat.

0:12:590:13:01

-A pair of shorts.

0:13:010:13:02

-Last, but not least, the trousers.

0:13:020:13:05

-I wore this outfit

-on my 18th birthday.

0:13:090:13:12

-That was in the late 1980s.

0:13:120:13:14

-I had a surprise party

-and this is what I wore.

0:13:140:13:17

-What about this, Mefys?

0:13:260:13:28

-Are you sure you want the nation

-to know you wore it?

0:13:280:13:31

-Yes.

-I was proud to wear it at the time.

0:13:320:13:34

-I was really taken with the colours.

0:13:350:13:38

-I wore a really baggy

-pair of trousers with this jacket.

0:13:400:13:44

-They went well together,

-at the time...

0:13:440:13:47

-..since the jacket is quite fitted.

0:13:470:13:50

-The label says, 'Cartoon',

-and I'm saying nothing, Mefys!

0:13:540:13:58

-Whatever floats your boat.

0:14:000:14:02

-These are pretty radical culottes.

0:14:090:14:12

-You could mistake it for a skirt,

-at first glance.

0:14:120:14:15

-All is revealed

-when you start to walk in them.

0:14:160:14:19

-If you look, you'll see that these

-culottes have a high waistband.

0:14:200:14:25

-It's ironic, but I recently bought

-a pair of culottes.

0:14:250:14:30

-It just goes to show

-things do come back into fashion.

0:14:330:14:36

-These are similar culottes.

0:14:370:14:40

-They're just like mine, Mefys.

0:14:400:14:42

-They're just like mine, Mefys.

-

-Yes. You're so trendy!

0:14:420:14:44

-Or am I stuck in a 1980s time warp?

0:14:440:14:46

-Or am I stuck in a 1980s time warp?

-

-Who knows?

0:14:460:14:48

-I'm amazed you kept these clothes.

-Why did you keep them?

0:14:540:14:59

-I'm amazed, too!

0:14:590:15:00

-I'm not sure why I kept the clothes.

0:15:010:15:03

-It was a decade

-when I had lots of experiences...

0:15:030:15:07

-..and I have so many memories

-of that period.

0:15:070:15:10

-I grew up during the 1980s...

0:15:100:15:12

-..and, for me,

-it's an important decade.

0:15:130:15:15

-I went through high school,

-I started work...

0:15:160:15:19

-..I went to sixth form

-and I went to college.

0:15:200:15:23

-I look back at that time and

-memories come flooding back to me.

0:15:230:15:29

-The clothes came with me,

-in a box...

0:15:310:15:34

-..from my parents' house

-to this house.

0:15:340:15:37

-I'd be heartbroken

-if the box disappeared.

0:15:390:15:43

-I'll keep a suit for a year, unworn,

-until I find matching accessories...

0:16:030:16:09

-..before I launch it on the public!

0:16:090:16:13

-What's the most important factor

-for you when you buy new clothes?

0:16:240:16:29

-The important factor is

-that I have a matching outfit.

0:16:300:16:33

-That's important to me.

0:16:340:16:35

-I collect accessories

-until I have everything I need...

0:16:360:16:40

-..to complete an outfit.

0:16:410:16:42

-I was in the bathroom one day...

0:16:430:16:45

-..just after I'd bought a new dress

-and a matching coat.

0:16:450:16:49

-They were in an aqua colour.

0:16:490:16:51

-I couldn't find matching earrings.

0:16:520:16:54

-I couldn't find

-the right shade of blue.

0:16:550:16:58

-It struck me the dress

-was the same colour as the walls.

0:16:590:17:03

-I dug out the paint pot

-and an old pair of earrings.

0:17:030:17:07

-They were white, metal earrings.

0:17:080:17:10

-I was sure I could paint them

-and that's what I did.

0:17:100:17:14

-They matched the dress perfectly.

0:17:140:17:17

-I do daft things like that.

0:17:170:17:19

-Where did it all stem from?

0:17:250:17:27

-It was probably

-my mother's influence.

0:17:280:17:30

-She likes matching outfits

-and so does my daughter.

0:17:310:17:34

-Glesni is the same as me...

0:17:350:17:36

-..even if we don't

-have the same taste in clothes.

0:17:370:17:40

-This passion for co-ordination

-is certainly in her...

0:17:400:17:44

-..just as it is in my mother.

0:17:440:17:46

-Why is it important to you

-to stand out from the crowd?

0:17:570:18:01

-I'm not sure.

0:18:020:18:04

-Seeking out the unusual

-is second nature to me.

0:18:040:18:07

-I really don't like to be the same

-as everyone else.

0:18:070:18:12

-I don't know why.

0:18:120:18:13

-It's just something inside me.

0:18:140:18:16

-Even the children at school notice

-when I wear something unusual.

0:18:160:18:21

-They ask me where I bought things.

-I'm too old to be a trendsetter!

0:18:210:18:26

-It's exciting and I enjoy it.

0:18:270:18:29

-Follow me, Nia.

0:18:300:18:31

-I have three wardrobes.

0:18:320:18:34

-Which one shall we see first?

0:18:340:18:36

-We'll start down here.

0:18:360:18:38

-My mother-in-law called this

-'The Preacher's Room'.

0:18:390:18:43

-It's a spare room and this is

-where I keep my winter coats.

0:18:430:18:47

-You have plenty of choice.

-You have plenty of choice.

-

-I go to a hymn-singing festival

-every Sunday night.

0:18:490:18:53

-I rotate my winter coats,

-on Sunday nights.

0:18:530:18:57

-There's enough in there

-to last for three months!

0:18:570:19:00

-Maybe.

0:19:000:19:02

-Linda collects more than just coats.

-

-I have 32 pairs of boots,

-for a start.

0:19:200:19:23

-I'm sure I have something

-in the region of 100 pairs of shoes.

0:19:240:19:29

-I wear them all.

0:19:300:19:31

-My husband thinks it's crazy

-because I only have two feet!

0:19:310:19:35

-You look very smart,

-dressed in suede.

0:19:380:19:41

-Are you fond of suede?

0:19:410:19:42

-Yes. I keep my

-leather and suede clothes in here.

0:19:430:19:47

-This wardrobe is full of

-suede and leather items of clothing.

0:19:470:19:52

-Do you have a particular favourite?

0:19:520:19:54

-Do you have a particular favourite?

-

-Yes. This one combines everything.

0:19:540:19:57

-It's leather, with a fur trim.

0:19:570:19:59

-It also closes to one side,

-so it's also rather unusual.

0:19:590:20:04

-It combines much of what I like.

0:20:040:20:07

-What are these, Linda?

0:20:090:20:11

-What are these, Linda?

-

-They're special.

0:20:110:20:12

-Kinky boots!

0:20:130:20:15

-Kinky boots!

-

-Yes, they're great.

0:20:150:20:16

-My husband asks me where my whip is

-when I wear these.

0:20:160:20:20

-I like them. They're unusual.

0:20:200:20:22

-They're incredibly comfortable.

0:20:230:20:25

-What do the people of Llannerchymedd

-make of you?

0:20:270:20:30

-I'd love to know!

0:20:300:20:32

-No... ignorance is bliss.

0:20:320:20:34

-This is another of my favourites.

0:20:470:20:50

-I'd wear that

-to go to a wedding party.

0:20:500:20:53

-An evening party.

0:20:530:20:55

-The necklace goes well with it.

0:20:560:20:59

-I take it you have matching shoes?

0:21:000:21:02

-I take it you have matching shoes?

-

-Yes, of course.

0:21:020:21:03

-I bought this

-for a special birthday celebration.

0:21:160:21:20

-I had to find some matching shoes,

-of course.

0:21:200:21:23

-This fringe is an unusual detail.

0:21:230:21:25

-These are the shoes.

0:21:260:21:27

-I found them, after a long search.

0:21:270:21:30

-They match the dress.

0:21:300:21:32

-This dress has a touch of

-the Charleston about this.

0:21:330:21:37

-Yes, it's nice worn.

0:21:370:21:39

-More shoes!

-There are handbags in here too.

0:21:510:21:55

-That's so pretty.

0:21:560:21:58

-Sandra, my sister, bought it for me

-when she was in New York.

0:21:580:22:02

-It seems to me these skirts

-are all quite similar.

0:22:030:22:07

-Yes, this is the latest trend.

0:22:080:22:10

-I've promised myself

-not to buy more than four.

0:22:100:22:13

-My daughter tells me they're

-yesterday's news in Liverpool.

0:22:130:22:18

-I'm behind the times!

0:22:180:22:19

-When these go out of fashion,

-will you stop wearing them?

0:22:200:22:24

-Yes, I'll stop wearing them.

0:22:240:22:26

-Will you get rid of them?

0:22:270:22:28

-Well, it's hard to know what to do.

0:22:290:22:32

-I've tried selling clothes

-at car boot sales...

0:22:320:22:35

-..but nobody buys them, Nia.

0:22:360:22:38

-Nobody shares my dress sense!

0:22:380:22:40

-Everyone else dresses 'normally'.

0:22:400:22:43

-Nobody wants them!

0:22:430:22:45

-Can you describe

-your relationship with clothes?

0:22:570:23:02

-I have a close relationship

-with my clothes.

0:23:020:23:05

-They mean the world to me and

-wearing them gives me confidence.

0:23:050:23:10

-I've forged a close relationship

-with my clothes.

0:23:100:23:14

-I feel confident

-if I'm happy with what I'm wearing.

0:23:140:23:18

-I'm not naturally confident.

-I was very shy, as a child.

0:23:180:23:22

-I gained some self-confidence

-through reciting poetry.

0:23:220:23:27

-My relationship with clothes

-gives my confidence a boost.

0:23:280:23:32

-It's so exciting to wear a

-matching outfit for the first time.
