When I was a lad at prep school the uniform was supplied by a shop called J Wood Stuart, 19 Howard Street, Belfast.
Their motto was for man and man junior.
I have unearthed a receipt dated the 3rd July, 1972, for the following:-
- One Brackenber House blazer @ £6.55
- One B/H tie @ £0.55
- One B/H cap @ £0.95
- Discount £0.15
- TOTAL £7.90
The young Brackenbrian in the image below must have been en route to or from a Games Day, because we wore shirts and ties.

Incidentally, they weren't overly generous with the discount!
