Great pic of the Gents at Margate.No Denim in sight(that's class) Don't know what your sayin browniecj. Lerk post a pic of the Harrington if you can. If this thread was ONLY about clothing all the time it wouldn't be as interesting and the book would end up a bore.Let's not forget that Folks have made friends thru this thread,and if you want to know where the next Foot Stomper is ask browniecj,he's got the energy and passion of a Teen.TA

Very surprised about the mohican getting mentioned, the first time i saw the haircut was on the tv programe, the last of mohicans?

the next being in Bristol 77/78, bright red on a punk.

 I thought someone might mention a flat top/crew cut.

 

Come to think of it, army surplus, Ma1, greens, boots, t.v, Vietnam, haircut... ?

If i remember well, the ex-title of this thread was "Traditional skinhead" and it has been banned by the moderators of SF. So yes, it would maybe be better to avoid this (in)famous word in the title of a new thread furthermore if you want to avoid the big boots, face tattoos and bleached jeans type of contributors. But i think That the good point of this thread is to reunite all kinds of contributors of all ages, around a specific period (a golden age) and subject. And after almost 1000 pages, it is difficult to always keep the discussion exactly on the original subject as a lot has already been said.

Just wondered if anyone else caught the Rod stweart documentry on BBC1 the other night, some great early footage of him as a beat nic, going thru mod, buying clothes etc, i even enjoyed the bits from his 'sold out' stage.

And by the way Cerneabbas, i think That the topic you launched about what an "ageing ex skinhead" wear is one of the best recent ones. I did not contribute,because the topic seemed reserved to the Originals.

That's exactly what my mob sometimes used to do. I used to get some cockles or whelks and we would have a drink in the pub just by Tubby Isaac's. Then we used to head off to Aldgate East station and home. There was a documentary the other night on the East End of London using archive footage and Tubby Isaac's was featured and interviewed.

I came across a photo on youtube the other day of a youth in 'classic' skinhead style, braces, boots, turned up Levi's. The caption claimed it had been taken in 1964, stating that the skinhead style had been around much earlier than 1969. Can I find it again? can I f......

Great Documentary with a lot of footage i've never seen before,and being an ardent Faces follower,i've seen most of it I believe.The early live interviews in Richmond and Archway were a treat.Shame that Mac was not included,seeing as how Woody and Kenny Jones made it in there?

Yes, saw that Basset; very enjoyable. Still on i-Player for anyone who missed it - but search for "Imagine" not Rod Stewart. Early footage (from 1965?) was the most interesting. Did anyone recognise where Rod was doing his clothes shopping?

I'm curious about this idea of the "Ex" Skinhead.I can see if you were an original Skin and when you got older you became a Punk (so many folks from the mid late 70's scene were originally skins) I could see if you were an Original Skin and became a Rockabilly fanatic in the late 70's.   browniecj,M.O.M.and Bunty were Mods who became Skin (and beyond) There are some my age like Clouseau who call themselves "EX" From my perspective,whatever subculture you joined helped define your ideas about culture and style.It stays with you forever in some form I think. Maybe we should reclaim the term "Peanuts" It would def draw a line between the "Original" and the revivals.
