Back to the monkey jacket thing, this photo(nabbed off Facebook) is dated 1967. A navy blue one with the plain piping over a nylon polo shirt.
I think the jacket style in question is the one without the white piping on the collar and cuffs.  Just plain navy with navy knit cuffs and knit collar, or a sky(or other lighter blue) color with navy knit collar and cuffs.  In my (granted meager)25 years of skinhead b.s., mostly pre-internet myself, I've personally never come across a jacket like that either.  
Yeah that's very nice,clocked it on the Oi Polloi site, too. I have something similar, an OrSlow brown needlecord jacket though I guess it's more in a Levi Type III style-- but yeah more versatile with jeans than a jean jacket. I dig that a lot.
Chinos, sta-prest like pants, lighter colored(dyed) jeans like tan, olive, etc., colors that Levi's makes.I wear jeans so often that I find I don't wear my jean jacket that often anymore.  When I was in my 20s the double-denim thing didn't bother me so much if the shades weren't identical, but in my 30s and beyond it just looks too "youthful" I guess.  
Gotcha. Yeah they "culled" me a couple years ago, too cos I'm a Septic.
AYP, were you "mod dave" on the '80s Casuals forum?
Huh, no way. Cool tidbit of info! Stuff like that keeps me coming back to this thread.
Dead cool Mr K., and what are those cuffs, 2"?! Or is 'PTU 1 ½"' 'something turn ups 1 1/2"'? Very nice, and I'm not normally a pleats guy. Would that our current Bostonian weather permitted the wearing of flannel anything! Today it was a tropical 35°C out here! Khaki chinos, navy polo, and penny loafers and miserable.
I've used them since even before their website, havi g been to the older and newer shops in Newcastle. AYP is right: they're often cheaper than other sites, and they post very quickly.I dfinitely recommend them.
It could bave been Nicky Crane, haha.But seriously, I made similar observations my first couple times in London in the mid-'90s.It's like any stereotypically-tough look: they co-opt it and make it a joke...
