A Merry Xmas to contributors and readers worldwide.  I think we are all covered in there somewhere
Well done Ed and DJ for posting - I couldn't get the link to open
Just got back from a bit of sunshine abroad and have watched the video - thanks Clouseau I was pleased to see a video explaining the progress of skinhead as all I have known is the original days.  I never new what 'oi' meant.  Now its all makes sense to me I do not really understand the racial bit as in 69 we hated everybody and then you grow up Generally i thought it was a good video and enjoyed all the songs of which I had pocessed the majority and proudly remember them...
I have just watched a live version from the Beat Club on youtube - Oh yes that is good - cheers
'You don't know like I know' - Sam and Dave - I had forgotten all about that one.  Just downloaded it from youtube - great memories - thanks for the reminder
We used to get our Jungle Greens from Army Surplus store 'Sams' in Woolwich SE London.  I can still to this day remember the musty smell and the stacks of clobber piled up to the ceiling 
Good post roytonboy I commented way back on the thread that back in 69/71 we were smart but subtle.  Also generally everything we wore had a purpose or was for a particular function and not just a fashion fad.  It was a stye that could be worn for many years Having said that i wouldn't think of dressing now exactly as I did back in the day. I wear polo shirts, button down shirts, straight leg jeans etc from high street shops.  I do not chase and pay the brand names...
You left me out - I had 'high leg loafers' on also called DM Dealer Boots Ha Ha
Just a word of thanks to John (Mr Knightley) for arranging the London meet yesterday.  A very pleasant afternoon drink with good company and banter.  Covering all topics from Crombies to Brexit   Representation from as far afield as Coventry, Scotland, Poland, France and Canada, oh and a few London boys   Until the next one - thanks
