It was a privilege and honour to have known Billy Murphy who kick started me off, as like many others, into a vintage existence that is still going strong today. An innovator and forward-thinker that put American vintage clothing on the map in Britain. A more charismatic man you will never meet; it was a pleasure to know and spend time with him.
Rest in peace Billy.
Words from the heart, Roy Luckett.
