They look a cheeky bunch.Good memories about the Sheepskin,Ace and Eights.If I remember correctly,you could buy a Sheepskin for about £25/£30(in `68) off the Lane.I remember one Skin having a Sheepskin that was very long.When the cheap copies came out(`70) they were about £15.I can remember standing in Clubs sweating my B*lls off,because you dare not take it off.Great Picture on YouTube of a group of Mates dancing(2 or 3 of them had their Sheepskins on).Even in numbers...

Wish I had gone into Scrap Metal-would be living somewhere nice and warm now!!!Interesting Photo-first time I have seen a Bra and a Sheepskin in the same Picture.....hmmmm:)
Nick Knight writes about the split that occurred about `67.A few hundred Pages ago,I wrote the split happened earlier.I never read any Account by Journalists concerning this.Another aspect I wrote about was the "kick back" against the way Fashions were going Gay.Do not forget Carnaby Street started about `58 with the selling of Gay Clothes.John Stephens crossed over to the Straight Fashion Market,with the colourful Clothing.This is what John Leo Waters and others were...

Around `70,the trend for unbuttoning the Collars started.I used to wear my BS like that,with a V Neck Jumper.It paved the way for Deeper and Penny Collars.The Loafers came out on the back of the Solatio popularity.
"Rude Boys Love Clarks",love that little Line.
I should say,the Crop came from America via Jamaica.
