Good points Brownie.
Both items are Skinhead items in my book. They may not be vintage trad skinhead wear 68-72 etc, agreed. But I like to mix my wardrobe with items I like from all the skinhead era's. Even late 70's revival (Not Oi! tho)   I think it would take great discipline to ONLY wear original late 60's skinhead items these days. Fair play and respect to anybody that does tho. Depends how you look at it I suppose, and what you want out of it. Check shirts weren't wore at the...

It does look quite smart. But in a Gestapo kind of chic.      
I agree. A very interesting post.   Getting leather to work in a mod (or skinhead way) is quite a difficult to thing to pull off I'd imagine. I'm not sure even ol' Sting comes close in Quadrphenia. I have seen long leathers over suits, but not very often. I think it could work if the leather is very plain (i.e. minimal detailing) and not too thick.
