Tommy Nutter, a Savile Row tailor, made the suits John, Paul, and Ringo are wearing in the Abbey Road album cover photo. http://www.theweek.co.uk/92110.....savile-row

This isn't new news, just something I learned today.

Right.

Paul isn't wearing shoes on the cover, that's fine bit weird but alright.

 

Paul's explanation for not wearing shoes is (roughly):

"Well it was hot so I decided to kick my shoes off".

 

Paul is walking across tarmacadam. For any of you who've walked on hot tarmacadam, IT'S RIDICULOUSLY PAINFUL. You have to go up on tip-top and run across the road like an idiot because you can feel your skin burning off.

 

His excuse for not wearing shoes because it was hot is stupid. Unless it was a nice sunny day with a breeze whereby the tarmac wouldn't be hot, then he could walk without shoes but why does he describe the day as "hot" and not just "sunny". 

 

YOUR REASONING MAKES NO SENSE MCCARTNEY AND THAT'S WHY PEOPLE THINK YOU'RE DEAD!!!

 

Somebody needs to draw up the temperature in St. John's Wood for that day and tells us whether it was a 'hot' August day or just a nice summer's day.

@Ahhh Girl   Tommy Nutter?  Perhaps he's the origin of the PID nonsense!

@AppleScruffJunior

I did a bit of digging... 

https://digital.nmla.metoffice.....f5a4591a5/

The 130 page document for weather in the UK in August 1969...

I, by chance, noticed a sentence that said 'after a very warm day on the 8th, especially in the Midlands and Southern Counties...'

And from a graph later on, I can find that the weather that day in London was 28C, roughly. 

So yeah, is call that hot (especially for Britain)

I think it was a windy day. if you look at Paul's or Ringo's hair (not so evident looking at John's or George's) you can appreciate certain "movement" in it. Also in his jacket and trousers...but yeah, dunno if that would've been enough to justify walking barefoot over the pavement on a sunny and very hot day. Also i think he was wearing sandals that day? aren't sandals supposed to be fresher than regular shoes? Then why would you take them off if you are already (almost) barefoot?

It's been a while since I've listened to him answer the question, but I recall him saying the sandals were uncomfortable or something along those lines.  I found pictures of the sandals he was wearing.  I could see those becoming annoying to wear.

That first photo gets me every time. Every single Beatle looks like they're at a different level of anger.

These days every designer gets credits at photo shoots.  Perhaps if that had been as prevalent in 1969, this credit might have been, "Sandals by Marquis de Sade."

He appears to be looking directly at the photographer.  Wasn't that one of Linda's shots?

Ringo seems to be telling the person, "Hey, I've got my eyes on you!" At least he isn't flipping the person off with his middle finger.

I've always thought he looked like he was picking his nose.  Scratching it at the least.

At first glance, it looks like he is flipping the camera off, before you realise it's not his middle finger

“While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I’m a naysayer and hatchet man in the fight against violence.

He was a Beatle; he could flip with whatever finger he liked.

I remember watching an interview a while back with McCartney, and he said that the reason he had no shoes on was because, with his house being so close to where the cover shot was taken,he left the house without putting his shoes on,so the explanation that he 'kicked them off' would therefore be irrelevant,or maybe he was just being deliberately mischievous. Come on Macca,tell us the truth a-hard-days-night-paul-5paul-mccartney

And yet he had sandals on. So, either he brought those with him or they just appeared in some photos.

 

Of course being dead he may have been walking on water prior to that and didn't want to get his shoes wet.
