Looking at the Photos,I would put them about `70 in South East London.The Cars are right and the Bus is a rear platform one-so if it was later someone went to a lot of expensive trouble.The one wearing the Crombie seems to wearing it without the Tie Tack in the front pocket(if it was later,everybody and his wife would have one)and properly ruffled as well.With the Flight Jackets I would have said they were the 2nd Batch that came in,because in `69 I had one with a dark lining-and it was navy blue.Wish I still had the Photo I had done in a photobooth about that time,wearing it.

No Buttons I did not mean you.Me and Missus saw a group at the "Almost Grown" Do in Southend(they were also at Nottingham but quieter)and she passed comment on it.The dead give away was the "Beer Bellies".

Elwood,like the first of the two Photos.The Look and the Stance.Its there.smile.gif

This was typical of the WW11 generation that we copied our tattoos from in 69

Back in the Midlands none of my mates had any.In the South I put it down to Pompey and Soton being seafaring towns and the lads emulating the elders.i suppose the same could be said of the East End.i have a love / hate feeling about them,specifically on women.there's some incredibly beautiful/sexy youg girls extensively covered,that I admire.There are also a number of very unattactive Grandmothers sporting Hearts and flowers that have long ago wilted.

What's the quality and fit of Relco-branded shirts?

 

I'm in the market for some gingham-patterned shirts without spending too much (I'd go Ben Sherman or FP but the price and postage to my country makes it too expensive).

Frankly, they're shit. Poor fit and they'll pill up on you pretty quickly.

In keeping with the skinhead theme I figured I'd post a couple skinhead themed tattoos I've done over the last couple years:

Not skinhead per se....but done on a skinhead buddy of mine and many skinheads do have an affinity for CO....

This one is pretty self explanatory hopefully tongue.gif

In real-life her head isn't quite as bulbous...it's on my buddy's thigh and I had him sit down to take the pic so I could get the whole tattoo in-frame.

****edit to Brownie**** I didn't mean to imply that your crew were 'wannabe thugs'...just the fact that people still get stuff on them that sometimes runs contrary to their actual 'beliefs'. I for one am of the mindset that tattoos don't need a meaning behind them. They should just look cool smile.gif nothing wrong with getting 'personal' tattoos....but they don't all have to have a deep meaning.


Thats some good work there mate

I've sent you a pm mate

As has been established in the hundreds of pages before, skinhead as a fashion seem to have come and went over and over a couple of times. Each time with some details changed or affected by the time it manifests itself. If i think back, first time i saw skinheads was in the 90s, and they were the right wing political sort, 14 hole grinders, bleachers, completely shaved, i'd say that the 70s revivalist was somewhere in between. Now i think its gone a full circle. I was at a soccer game earlier today, watching my local team, small scale stuff, not exacly champions league, at most 3-400 people or so. But funny enough i stumbled upon some younger guys (I'm a mere 35 myself, not exactly old), but younger as in early 20s. And they wore neat jeans with the discrete turn up, gingham shirts/single colour oxfords, levis jackets, harringtons. I could clearly see each of em having a trojan records patch on their jacket (I'm not much for patches as i think they break the neatness of otherwise great clothes), obviously a new generation i'd say. What was distinct with these as compared to what has been mentioned earlier in the thread was that they seemed to all be wearing Converse sneakers and sported quite a lot of tattoos. But otherwise i'd say it was closer to the 60s street kit than the 1979-2000 extreme variety.

 

Sort of made me glad, it eventually got so extreme that the only way to stand out was to tone down and shape up, i suppose. I spoke some to them in half time, they are after all supporters of the same team as me, seemed to be a amicable lot.

at least two ma1 flight jackets in the pix... smile.gif






I knew the Black & White photo from before, but it's a nice find. I'm wondering though the little kid has a mac in one photo and a flight jacket in the others. Could he be wearing the bomber from someone else (you can see the kid with the plain blue shirt wear a bomber in the pic with the mac, but he doesn't wear any jacket in the other photo's). Could it be he swapped his mac for the bomber just for the photo? Why? It's clearly too big for him. Where macs out of style by then?

dist1, I dont know if you can get clothes from Marks and Spencers,but i think that some of their button downs are tidy and definitely good value for money,i bought a brown check short sleeve for £12 ! it is better quality than the Fred Perry short sleeve button downs that i looked at for £65 !. I also bought a light blue grandad vest ( £7 ) for the nice hot summer that we are going to have in England....
