Mod to Suedehead - Page 864

post #12946 of 17758


Still mining Getty site ... Carnaby Street 1966. Is the jacket on right the suede one with leather collar often mentioned on here (doesn't look like Levi's to me and might have popper buttons)? (Less said about outfit on left, the better! And trousers on right come to that)

An example of what we were wearing Up North in 1968 before skinhead style reached us (note early sighting of denim jacket and I certainly had an anorak then) ... apparently this was in Burnley

Specific colors of specific clothes has been mentioned (jungle greens, stone Sta-prest, brown/ox blood/black boots) ....but I'd like to hear more of how an outfit was put together if it pleases all.

For example...if you wore let's say black boots with a pair of stone Sta-Prest...were there certain color combinations of shirt, sweater vest/or braces, and Harrington/monkey jacket/whatever type of 'overcoat'....that made you feel especially smart? Or was that thinking too much into it?

Here are a few photos that sum up my recollections of the day.Even though the East End Boys photo is B&W ,you can still see a lot of lighter shades being worn together.I believe this was probably a hangover from Mod.By contrast to later generations interpreting the style,this was a much brighter look.Is that the East End of London I wonder?The lad on the left must have nicked his jacket of a Northener;smile.gif Seeems like it was National Fair Isle day in Bristol !

By stark contrast ,here is the look many years later.Hijacked,re-invented and bastardised. IMO.dull,and unappealing.Compare this to Eccles and his crew above.Much smarter and they all look like they took pride in putting everything together

English League Division One match at Maine Road
Manchester City 1 v Leeds United 2.
Police arrest troublemakers in the crowd
November 1969






Interesting pics, ek77. Illustrates how little segregation of opposing fans there was at that time. Looks to me that this was old Scoreboard End at Maine Road. Clear from 3rd pic that it was a City fan being ejected (scarf colours) but you can see that scarves hung over wall at front of terrace in pic 1 were Leeds - so both sets of fans in same section, which is probably how "disturbance" came about.

One other thought, his crop was pretty short - looks like no.2 or even no.1 to me. Any thoughts from anyone else about this at that time in North (roytonboy or Ed Vaughan)?

Gsvs5. The East end in that picture is the East end of Ashton gate (Bristol City) rather than East end of London.As Basset pointed out a few pages back the fairisle pictures were taken in Ashton park opposite Bristol City ground.There was also a black and white picture of City skinheads fighting with Cardiff supporters ( fairisles in that picture too) fairisles were popular down here "back in the day", my gran knitted mine navy,sky blue and white,i thought i was the dogs dangly bits for a while.I am NOT a Bristol City supporter never have been,but i will say that they sorted some much bigger clubs mobs out in Ashton park back then,people might have come to Bristol taking the piss out of the accent / farmers / worzels etc, they went home with a different idea.

Gsvs5, I totally agree with your comment on the more recent pictures,unappealing look, ( and unappealing girls IMO). I think that some of these blokes go into a shop that sells all the gear and say "make me into a skinhead", it all seems really "plastic".

elwood. Segregation in those days was non existent, it wasnt only the teams that changed ends at half time the supporters used to as well. Later on you went to some grounds and there was a rope down the terracing to seperate rival supporters, that idea didnt seem to work very well though ! The worst trouble could occur when you had been seperated and then left the ground through the same exit,bloody scarey for an away supporter especially at a night game ( well i thought so anyway ), never stopped us going though did it ? haha.

What Cerneabbas said really. Yep there were certainly a lot of Fairisles worn in Bristol but I never thought it a regional thing, I had a dark blue/light blue/white and black one which was very popular.

The photo of the Never on Sunday boys featured on the front of Booted & Suited also shows one (worn by a chap called Dave Mealing - who just to even up things was a Rovers' lad).

There were plenty examples like this all over a mere 10-12 years ago they always used to cite bands like The Templars and Oxblood, but you are right I never saw such examples in recent years in  larger groups it seems a lot of them absorbed into psychobilly scenes and such.

One of the original Mile End lot I believe.

Here's a more recent example I believe.( Holland April 2013 )

Still shows little in the way of variation ,colour ,or style in my opinion,which was what my original answer was about.

All I see is Burgundy,Black and Blue

Gsvs5. The last picture made me realise how much fatter people are ( generally ) than we were "back in the day", i remember going into Austins in Bristol for sta prest and the smaller waist sizes were either sold out or only the less popular colours left.I remember my tonics were too big and i had to have darts sewn in them so they would stay up. I can only ever remember a very few fat people then,fat women were a joke for seaside postcards,i can honestly say that i only remember one fat person ( a woman) in our street.The diet was not the same as now and we were all much more physically active.I have to go to the gym and go for runs now to keep my weight down,i think that "our styles" look better on slimmer blokes and girls.
