 It might have just been what was in fashion... Or perhaps it came from the Apple boutique?

Was it The Fool? They were designing and working with the Beatles at that time.

Edit: According to here it was.

The Fool also designed clothes The Beatles wore in 'I Am The Walrus ' clip in Magical Mystery Tour .

And also on Pintrest (you may need to have to sign in to access the page)

I was assuming The Fool, but I didn't want to say anything without knowing for sure.

One of the people from The Fool is going to be at the Beat Meet, which apparently is an international event, to be held in the Dutch city of Leiden on the 26th of this month. Since it's only thirty minutes or so by train, I intend to go and have a look at all the stuff I can't buy a-hard-days-night-paul-7 

If the opportunity arises, and I can muster up the courage, I could ask them about the clothes. There might be an anecdote or two about the designing process...

I assume it's a different brand though. Does The Dutch The Fool have a web site?

If you could ask I would be most appreciative to know. Maybe ask if they have a website and would consider bringing a Magical Mystery Tour inspired line for the 50th anniversary next year . . ya, everybody loves anniversaries and I'm sure they'd love a reminder 🙂

This is rather cool to see. A good sample of The Fool's art and designs.

I found this article about the clothes and items sold at The Beatles' Apple Boutique store - http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10......html?_r=0

don-w I've asked whether or not Barry Finch will take questions, explaining about the things you wanted to know. They've replied, saying the questions were very interesting and they'll quite likely include them in the interview. They did state that reproductions are probably not available, since the clothes were handmade.

I've been able to confirm that the shirt was indeed made by The Fool collective 

Also found some information on their boutique store

http://www.strawberrywalrus.co.....store.html

 

I bet a Beatles pop-up shop would be a successful venture, I'd imagine one popping up in Los Angeles would get a lot of foot traffic. I wonder what their ultimate plan was for the stores. Imagine if they had started their own music distribution network by setting shops in more cities

What an interesting thought. I for one, would revel in buying all of my music from Zapple.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.
