I think that reflects the ignorance of the owners and not of the public at large.
Thank-you Bob. Roytonboy had asked why the Look has such an enduring appeal and I replied with my personal perspective of why it appeals to me. As you get older you realise that thought and ideas are not formed in a vacuum and I wondered if anyone else might have a similar perspective?Anyone else having a problem posting? I have been struggling to post anything for the last two days (hence my tardy replies!). A message comes up saying it is a technical fault and to try...
Nothing in that media image of intolerant, aggro-loving Skinheads. You and Buttons should buff up on your skim reading, it really is most useful. Personally, I have no interest in the revival, but every now and then it throws up something that does make for a relevant discussion of the original Skinhead period. Just saying......
A fairly typical media interpretation of Skinhead, wouldn't you say, Bob?
You're such a card, Bunty!
Thank-you Mr. K, I thought I could rely on you to empathise with my viewpoint.I have just ordered a copy of the book from Amazon, I shall enjoy reading it!I couldn't agree more: I find the modern-day world quite depressing in its ugliness and, although perhaps my view of the '60's is a trifle romanticised, it provides a balm against the utter lack of decorum and style that seems to populate the world today.

They're from North Shields, Bob and I were talking to one of them a few months ago. It is a cracking photo!I feel as you do, anything that belittles the style raises my hackles. I would pick up such a book, but I wouldn't be impressed. I'm sure our resident dandy, the charming Mr. Knightley, would agree?For the record, I am greatly inspired by Mr. Knightley's dandyism: it tallies with my own fascination with clothes.
I'm smiling! If it is just an extension of Mod (that's certainly how I see it) then surely it has the same legacy as Mod? When I was a kid, I would look at photos of my parents in the '60's: how smart and stylish they looked (they knocked about with Mods, but didn't feel the need for a label) and then at how they looked in the '70's. Similarly with my dad's Rolling Stones LP covers: it struck me that the '60's were the last time people were truly smart, and what I term...
