This was a look that was popular among the smarter skinheads / suede heads in England during the early to mid seventies. Usually a 'Crombie' (not a real one) very waisted Melton wool lightweight overcoat with ticket pocket and obligatory red spotted handkerchief in the breast pocket, worn with a Ben Sherman button down, sta prest or two tone strides, clip on braces, red socks. and brogues or doc marten shoes. I think it was a great look for the time but was definitely an...

Since you're known for your thriftiness Reev, why not go to Macy's and take a look at Cubavera? When they are having one of their weekly sales you can probably get a pair for about $25.
