Nobody doubted that the skinheads and everything that followed didn't had tattoo's. Multiple stories and photos to acknowledge this (seen enough on some 60s mods too.. the gang ones).Here's a neck one from 1970 Newcastle.Facial Tattoo's especially that famous 80s skin picture is a whole different kind of beast...Btw I mean Con Man from your quotation, but I could only quote you Clouseau.
Looking for help here, been searching everywhere on the inet for something similar to the picture. Looking for a boiler suit that's more slimfit then the usual workwear. Materialwise not shiny synthetic stuff. My size is somewhere between S and M. Colors well I'm open for a lot, but initially looking for either blue or tan. And something without zippers, just buttons (anything you would find on a classic levi trucker jacket). Any ideas? Thanks
This photo was posted on original modernist facebook page with background story by the owner.

Just joking about the musical punchout The only thing I wanted to point out is that I think the JA music selection is better nowadays.
...but we do (recognise them... well at least I guess so, I wasn't there of course) That's why so many british DJ's like playing in mainland europe... couldn't believe people knew and sang along the tunes word for word.Your generation where the best when it was about the clothes.. but we win the musical punchout! (and you have to remember Jim Cox played a big part in our current favorites).Favorite (for the lads that is), and a tune that wouldn't be popular if not for...
Regarding the whole DJ's and 'obscure' tunes (Motown > Northern Soul) thing. Personally speaking, and this is a opinion formed from the Reggae scene rather then the NS scene. I know we kinda created our own 'Nothern Soul'-like hit chart for Reggae amongst the young skinheads, Reggae Revive guys and 60s jamaican music fans in mainland europe, but most popular tunes bore me to death in the reggae, and seriously... Double Barrel is just plain annoying, Return of Django...
There's no american cravat, I watched the video again. That's blur and lightning. The other observation is correct though!
What about these kids... This is from 1970 (according to description). The middle kid even has the back of his hair like The Jam-era Paul Weller haha. Also note the middle fella with his unbuttoned shirt. You hardly (or won't) see that in today's scene, because it won't go unnoticed with the skinhead fashion police That's the difference between now and then, they are not living in a box of regiments.Also note the kid with (looks like) nr.1 in the back, while his mates...
By the way here's some pictures I haven't seen posted here: This one is a Metalwork class 1968-1969. I spot a few kids who might be in the know. These could've been poste already, cannot remember:
