Our 'fashion' came from the streets. No marketing, no advertising, all word of mouth. Not anti-fashion but anti-fashion people telling us what was 'in' or 'groovy'. We picked up on what other smart boys were wearing when visiting the Dance Halls , football terraces, pubs, clubs and school. That's what was so good about it. It belonged to us. No one dictated to us what to wear. We were our own fashion police.
When you think about it the Skinheads weren't anti establishment or rebels, Most of us was good lads at heart,came from good homes, knew the right from wrong..was disciplined. smart in our appearance, and loyal to our mates, We may of cause mayhem for a couple of years but most of us ended up leading pretty ordinary lives afterwards, some fell by the wayside but thats life in general.
