Could be a case of the devil being in the detail perhaps? i find a lot of modern clobber like that, take the humble v neck jumper, theres loads around nice colours fabrics etc, but on many the v opening is so shallow that you struggle to get a shirt collar inside it, then again could be me double chin
Its the trendy thing to be "fitted". Its because the type of clothes that us lot are into, are "on trend", so the cut and fit is being designed for a "younger" market. Its all balls of course, and most people just go up a size.post #12005 of 200854/25/13 at 10:51pmQuote:Originally Posted by Ed Vaughan

Skinheads on a charity walk? I bet THAT never made the papers!post #12006 of 200854/25/13 at 11:21pmpost #12007 of 200854/26/13 at 1:15amQuote:Originally Posted by Lasttye
Back in the 60s before they became popular we had our Crombie made at our local tailors..they was heavy wool, three flapped pockets and breast pocket...fairly narrow lapels...the coat was well waisted and knee length, fly button of course. Lining was mostly Dark red and the tailor would give you a bit of scrap lining to make a hanky.
Once they became popular you could buy them off the peg and down the market.
Even when the skinhead fashion had ended we still wore our Crombie to football as a warm Jacket..I remember going to Everton away in 71...most of us was wearing Crombies...the Scousers mugged a few lads for their crombies on the way to the ground..
What worth noting Crombie is the company that makes the coat...I never saw anyone with a genuine Crombie ?? in saying that....we would never had known that Crombie was a coat company back then.
These days I have a Paul Smith, Made in Italy...Crombie...well smart and fcuking useless in the winter no warmth,
Some present day Skinheads go to Adams in Portobello Market...They do a nice Crombie at a cheap price.
There was an article in last week's Telegraph about Crombie ("The coat of choice for the KGB, skinheads, City bankers and bookies") http://fashion.telegraph.co.uk/news-features/TMG9988101/Mencyclopaedia-Crombie.html . Says that Crombie didn't start making coats themselves until 1985. Before then, they manufactured the cloth so a "genuine" Crombie in those days would be Crombie cloth made up by your own tailor - but the name got applied to similar coats I suppose.post #12008 of 200854/26/13 at 2:00ampost #12009 of 200854/26/13 at 10:00am
From memory, I bought my Crombie (with the Crombie label inside) off the peg from Dunn & Co in Romford. The shop was next door to Alexandra's where I bought a made-to-measure Prince of Wales jacket. The coat was very similar to the present day Retro coat with
Above Knee length (just about)
2 Horizontal side pockets (no ticket pocket)
The Lapels/collar as the Retro but no Velvet collar.
Mine wasn't as shaped (darted) as the Retro.
I remember I actually preferred some of the Crombie copies which were cheaper but had a better shaped lapel. The coat was 'christened' at East Ham station when my mate threw up on my back after a 'heavy' night drinking at the Black Boy, Stepney Green.post #12010 of 200854/26/13 at 11:54ampost #12011 of 200854/26/13 at 12:59pmQuote:Originally Posted by corker23

What a lot of hot air. Looks like he's been paid to write an article about something he knew little about or even had an opinion on, but wrote it anyway.
Good picture though.post #12012 of 200854/26/13 at 1:28pmI've just read it too and agree with D.S.I Buttons. It's funny, I cringe when I see 'modern' Weller-type Mods with that bloody barnet but at least they mean well. (But so did Hitler as Spike Milligan once said )
Just found this, an assortment of '67 Mod styles -
Mods outside the club Tiles. Bee Gees Live Performance,1967post #12013 of 200854/26/13 at 3:47pmI agree that there's a lot of bollox in that artical but I think it highlights the distorted perception of people 'looking in'. I hated all that Britpop tripe, bunch of scruffy beggers. But its those middle class indie kids who assume I'm racist if I'm wearing boots and dressed smart, but I'm the one listening to black music.post #12014 of 200854/26/13 at 4:29pm
corker23.Unfortunate stuation.I walked away from the Mod revival/retro idea by 81 when Indie rock began.It's one thing to incorperate some Mod styles as a nod to your origins but a complete retro attitude is sad to me.I remember in the 80's there were alot of 60's garage bands with all the bells and whistles also a little silly.If new so called Mod bands are influenced by The Who,Small Faces,The Action,and Creation then you've missed the point.Oasis was Pathetic.I was shocked when I first saw them in a Mag and thought "Mod revival Again?! The numerous Ska revivals over the years have been even worse.Shall I stop now?post #12015 of 200854/26/13 at 4:46pm
