For the record, in the late winter of 1969/70 (i.e. more into early 1970) a large consignment of surplus MA-1s came into the shops in S E London. Skins started wearing them, especially the older skins. However, the vogue was very short-lived because firstly stocks ran out, and secondly by summer we had started to 'grow out of' the skinhead look altogether.
