Resistance Through Rituals -The Skinheads and the Magical Recovery of Community ()(1975) Click on photo of two Skins 'Page 98' I'll try and get hold of the book and post this chapter (and the Mod one) http://books.google.com/books/about/Resistance_Through_Rituals.html?id=2NhwJSlyxwsC
Yeah, ok mate, just had a look, point taken - He used to be a smart geezer then!Agree about Pretty Green Jason, over priced too, think they've (Gallagher and Weller) lost touch with their roots.
I think I know what you're getting at Roy - when I was 11 my mum was still buying my clothes!
Thanks Brownie! I'm gonna get that bloody Queenie and MoM some nice, ahem, grey hankies made up!With you all on the stud/pin - don't like a too flamboyant hanky 'arrangement' either, personally.Used to wear a tootal paisley scarf, knotted like a tie and pulled down a bit, showing off shirt - we thought it was very Steve Marriott, (probably more Paul Weller though)He's a well dressed chap, Weller, I reckon, this is the nearest he came to the Skin look I think - front...
^ That's got to be a diy job hasn't it? My sis in law and her mate used to cut each other's hair (neither was a hairdresser) in the 'short haired mod girl cut' - like Julie Driscoll's. She used to sellotape the feathery sides to her cheek at night in an attempt to make them flat! Pocket hanky is it then. Didn't know that 'square' was American. Even though 'hanky' reminds me of a snot-ridden cloth in the pocket of my grey school shorts! Great MoM - can we do anything?
Great, thanks chaps, knew you'd all know....you should write a book! (can't bloody wait for it)
Back to pocket squares......Found some silk pocket squares and ties, some ties are polka dot with a matching pocket square, like it's part of a set, others matched by colour - these are pre-skin right? Did everyone wear these in the 60s or are they a mod thing? See nearly all plain white hankies in photos from the time (late 60s) that's all.
The Styleforum hippies are trying to freak us out !
Not me Brownie, chip something up for us mate Were you old enough for the Stax & Volt tour in '67?
