Sadly they flock into Shoreditch with no where really to go and end up marching about drinking from tins and sniffing laughing gas thats sold openly on the streets - you can see why the council have the hump . 
Shoreditch is full of kids from Kent and Essex on a friday and saturday - its like the fucking west end in the 80s shocking . The cool crowd are all up Kingsland high rd / Dalston and Hackney wick these days some really good clubs up that end .

Kojack wasnt a Skinhead he was just Bald ( heard he died in a cycle accident in Fulham a decade ago ) all black teenagers wore the clobber to some extent same as white boys  and most had cropped hair .

the debate on how to wear your unwashed / raw denim rages to this day http://www.rawrdenim.com/2011/09/the-essential-raw-denim-breakdown-our-100th-article/You do and im sure kids did have to soak them to get rid of the startch otherwise they rot easily and you get the dreaded cruch blow out within a year .Im a big fan of raw denim especially the japanese jeans that copy the Levis of the 50s and 60s such as Full Count / Samurai and Studio D' ARTISAN .

they would have been Raw denim for a start ( the Levis ) .
The Timpsons royals were cheaper / high st versions of the likes of Churches ?
