I have come back and read through all the Posts(from 1466 until now).I do not come on as much but do occasionally have a read through..Speaking for myself.I was asked to join this Forum by Roy many Moons ago.It was the Skinhead thing that got me interested but it widened out.I have read and agreed with most Posts,but not all.We had some right ding dongs on here regarding what was worn,in different parts of London.I was lucky in that I knew East London,went Clubbing...
It was a first attempt of making a uniformed "Look".The Mile End Boys wore these at West Ham - so the others knew which Mob they were..Most of them were Dockers
In the Book "Mods" by Richard Barnes.
Similar to Commando Boots,except the Soles were Black Rubber.Wore them myself.
This Jacket I can remember, from about `67/ `68.I Had one myself - though they were called by another Name(Streetwise),but for the Life of me,I cannot remember.

There were some Mods who wore FPs( striped and plain) Collars outside of thin Crew Neck Jumpers,in `64,also some did the same with the knitted Polo Tops..This Style was again worn(with just FPs) about `67/`68.
DMS were not allowed at School nor the Crop either.Some Kids were expelled through that - this was when the Skinhead was at its peak in all the Papers etc.There was a High School in Guildford(cannot remember the Name now)where there were some smart Boys attending.Blazers and Trousers very clean and pressed,Hair was with a side-parting and they all wore Royals.
Whilst waiting in the Queue at a Jamaican Takeaway(outside the Queens),last Saturday,over their small Sound System there was the sweetest Ska.I nearly forgot about the Football(should have done as it happens)and kept close by.
