...just a note on Fred Perry - if you look at all the pics you can find just one(!) guy sporting one - seems they weren't as popular as many people think now... ...another big influence for the contemporary look was for sure the casual movement, which actaually is much more going with the spirit of mod/skin (soulstylists - yeah!) than punk. Thats how sportswear (e.g. Pringle, Lonsdale, Adidas Sambas) became so popular...
...go ahead! (...and just to be a smartass - the style section was done by Jim Ferguson...)... ...off to nürnberg!

Outfit will be traditional suedehead - b+w gingham BD, grey tanktop, white levis, orange socks and black brogues - and as it's snowing the trusty sheepskin (with the beer stains on the sleeves from holding up the bar)...
...actualy NEVER! I really have to think back quite a while to remember the last Oi! gig I went to (I think it was Los Fastidios) let alone acomplete Oi! festival... Soul and reggae is what it is for me... Tomorow:
...just only found this thread... ...yes, I think I'd fit in the traditional skinhead world - though I'm kind of growing out of it - finaly! ...rarely DMs - though I still own about a dozen (most of em would only go down well in punk circles)... ...denim of course, button downs, brogues, smooths, harringtons, my beloved sheepskin, sta prests and cords, heaps of Perry! But also Canali and Coreliani suits (cuts fit me great, though not street lad) and stuff like...
