1966 Paul Outfits and Separates

In 1966, Paul was also given new outfits and separates. The 1966 leaflet describes him as having:

“the sharpest collection of clothes – the type of wardrobe every girl would like her boyfriend to wear…”

Paul retained all the outfits provided for him in 1965 except for the green ‘Weekenders’ pull-over which was no longer available.

Soccer (Ref 13M06)

This being 1966 and with the World Cup being played in Britain, Paul had his own football kit. A  stretch cotton yellow football shirt, trimmed with blue on the collar and short-sleeves with the number ‘5’ on the back of the shirt. A pair of blue shorts with white stripes stitched down the side and blue football socks trimmed with yellow. His accessories were a pair of tan coloured, plastic, ribbed shin pads, black football boots with fake studs and minute pull-on tags on the heels, and a tan coloured, plastic football.

Winter Sports (Ref 13M07)

Obviously designed to compliment Sindy’s ‘Winter Holiday’ outfit, Paul was given blue stretch ski pants, a heavy knit red jumper with a “Norwegian” design and a matching bobble hat with a white bobble. The jumper fastened with a red painted metal popper at the back of the neck. His mittens were white vinyl and he was given both a pair of black ski boots and a pair of black skating boots. He also had a pair of skis and poles which look to be the same as Sindy’s.

Medical Student (Ref 13M08)

Again designed to compliment Sindy’s ‘Emergency Ward’, Paul could now be a medical student. He wore a white cotton surgical suit. The jacket had a high collar with a breast pocket and patch pocket on the left hand side. It fastened on the right with three white painted metal poppers. There were white matching trousers and he wore white lace-up shoes and a white surgical mask. His accessories were a silver plastic stethoscope with white plastic earplugs, and a white plastic skeleton for “physiology lessons”.

Raincoat (Ref 13M54)

A smart navy blue, unlined, three-quarter length, long-sleeved raincoat with a collar, made of cotton. It was belted with a large silver coloured metal buckle for that “Continental” look. It had two fake side pockets and fastened with three black painted metal poppers down the front.
