Yeah mate I know, yours is probably right anyway cos not a lot of people are aware:

A duffle coat, or duffel coat, is a coat made from duffle, a coarse, thick, woollen material. The name derives from Duffel, a town in the province of Antwerp in Belgium where the material originates.


No worries :) Good quiz and boogered if I can get the last two , lol

added 88 London Pride and 17 Jaffa Orange.

Not sure whether it's Afghan or Duffle though!!! Wikipedia reckons Duffle coats were popular in the 50s and 60s which matches what the clue says, while Afghan was popular in the 70s but Afghan is more well known as a placename than Duffle....

Still need these two as well to complete
