Mod to Suedehead - Page 970

post #14536 of 18618

Drop of temperature means the return of smart clobber. Still rather hot here, but rainy.
Even Dinkelacker, some of the smartest (and costy) longwings IMO makes models with leather/rubber soles.

Clouseau..Yes the cold weather is better for "our look ",however in England the youth like to wear shorts and t shirts outside in the cold !! they think that it gives them a tough image, but to me it just makes them look stupid  ( like a small child that needs to be told to put a coat on ),especially when you go into their houses and the heating is turned up to maximum !.

Have you found an Ma1 jacket that you like yet ?..I said that I would not wear one now but I have been looking online for something interesting...

I was interested to see the pictures of the disorder at the Bristol City v Bristol Rovers game this week,mostly scruffy cnuts ( IMO ),but one or two young City fans with short hair,side partings..wearing Fred Perry polos,i was quite surprised.Of course I don't agree with this type of behaviour blah blah blah.

Forgot to say,I would really like some Dinkelacker longwings...maybe next year.

My experience with Rubber/Leather soles.Lived in a mountain town in Mexico.This town was on the side  of a mountain.Spanish colonial,cobble stone streets.When the rainy season arrived my suede Italian lace ups with Rubber soles was of no use.I couldn't get up the steep streets.Noticed all the men had cowboy boots with leather soles.Movin up those cobble stoned streets was slow but no slipping.

Cerneabbas. I think those Dinkelacker are the ultimate brogue (imho, of course).

Didn't find a decent MA-1 yet. Wear my Baracuta these days.

Clouseau,I agree about the Dinkelacker brogues,some of their other designs look good too.

Have to say that those cordovan Allen Edmonds ( like Lasttyes ), look great too,really nice shape IMO.

A man can never have too many pairs of brogues !.

For a flight jacket I really would like to find something "different".

I agree the Allen edmonds (and the Alden) are beautiful longwings. But there is something special with the Dinkelackers...

post #14542 of 18618

Yes,the shape is great and the quality looks superb...ok it should be at those prices.I prefer the Allen Edmonds shape to the Alden....BTW my Bexleys are starting to get soft and comfortable,i have been considering getting a rubber commando sole on them.

On 'V' neck Jumpers,it became important to have an overlapp at the point of the 'V'.This was about the same time as the Patchwork jumper style.Silly memories but it kept us on our toes.
The girls were also wearing long sleeve shirts with tight fitting ,fine ribbed short sleeve crew necks.This made the sleeves look quite puffy.

just saw this pic from Roy showing the V overlap I was talking about earlier.

Its funny as Skinheads in London we never wore Fair Isle Tank Tops...But the jumpers came into fashion later ...I think this pic of my mate and me is about 72??

Perhaps in hindsight,  I shouldnt of said, if i was an original Skinhead, I would now be an old bastard, some may have taken offence....just my sense of humour!!!!

 

Cerneabbas. you are correct, I did mean...we didn't know what was going on in London....not, we didn't care what was going on .....although I shouldn't of put we, I should of put....I didnt know!....but I was only 12 in 1979, I was just happy to be part of Jerry Dammers 2tone army, most 12 years olds are just putting cap guns and bow and arrows away, I dont believe many of that age are that fashion concious, that they would want to be one step head of the competion, with clothes.

 

Also your question of Stoke fans and clay and razor blades, I have heard something along these lines, though clay and nails, not razors, though never seen this, I would say it is feasable, but not with soft potters wheel clay.... in potbanks (factories), the clay comes in heavy blocks, which are then put into a large mixing machine that turns the clay into a liquid form called Slip, which is piped to an area, where it is poured into plaster moulds.... where the blocks come in, is called the clay end, and it is hard heavy work and I can imagine the blokes in there, would do a lot of pissing around, throwing the clay at each other etc, so , I could see, that somebody would come up with the idea of setting nails/razors into a small ball, perhaps the size of the a golf ball and then  letting the clay dry out and then taking these down to  the Vale or Stoke.....as for weapons not being used back then, I can remember, as a lot of people will, of the dart in that blokes face who was being accompanied by a policeman in the 70,s, and then there were kung fu stars, then there was the Millwall brick, my step brother showed me how to roll a newspaper that tightly, that is could be used as a cosh, he also made a 10" cosh made out of solid rubber with a hole drilled in the centre down the length of it and then a 1/2 steel bar was placed in the hole, it was heavy, but small enough to stash under you jacket and he took it down the to Vicky Ground, every home game, this would be around 1976.

 

Gssv5, Hope Street, where Chawners was. is probably one of the few areas that hasn't changed, down the years.

The bowling alley is now a casino and was next to the ABC cinema and I remember it as having 60's decor, in the bar area, right up until they closed about 10 ten years ago, unfortunatly it has now been knocked down.

You might have bought shoes from Brassingtons in Fountain Square, they are still there and it is like going into a timewarp, they still sell Doc Martens, the only decent brogues they sell though are Loakes.....a chap, me and others on here know, who is an early Portsmouth Skinhead from the 60's, came up to Stoke for an allnighter at The Kings Hall a couple of years ago and went in there and said, it was great little, old style ,shoe shop and I think he bought a pair of Loakes.

I'am completely surprised, you never went to the Torch, with only living in Stafford, when people from all over the country went there, another chap I know, who was an early Chelsea Skinhead in the 60's, although didn't go to The Torch, he did come up to go allnighters at Trentham Gardens.....as side note, I spoke to him on the phone the other week and he told me had gone into a charity shop near where lives and his eyes lit up when he found one Hawkins Astronaut, but was then disallusioned because they couldn't find the other one.....turns out though, they found it, let him know and now is a happy bunny haha!!!

Did you ever hear of a Stoke hooligan, by the name of Coddy Hughes, think he might of been a Suedehead in the early 70's and was well known on the Northern Soul scene in the 70's, he got shot and killed in a pub in Colchester in 79, by the landlord after  a game against Ipswich.

Also, surprised you never heard of some of Skinhead gangs in Stoke, other than the Trent Vale Skins, if you type in... Phil Johnson, stoke on trent, pottery and ceramics tunstall.... theres a nice little paragraph  (Music and Fashion} where he recalls, the football and fashions and mentions crops, sta press etc and some of the gangs.

He doesn't mention The Chell Heath Skins (CHS), but they are the only ones who kept going from the 60's, through the 80's and some are still knocking about now......I used to knock about with them during the 80's and though most were Vale, we all used to get on, with just the usual banter.....one of the early Skinheads in the CHS, from the 60's....is well known Stoke fan and what he doesn't know about Northern Soul records, isn't worth knowing.

 

I don't know if this has been brought up before, but if a chap, became a Skinhead in 1968 or after, can they claim to be an original, with the internet and photos and info emerging, it seems that there were Skinheads or people who dressed in that style, before the name was coined by the media, a couple of years before 68, in Nick knights book there is photo of "Skinhead" with Mods, claiming to be from 67 and wasn't there a band, the name escapes me, who were around in 66, there is even a photo claiming to be from 64, not entirely sure about that one, though and even in some photos of Mods running on beaches etc, there seems to be some lads with cropped hair and what look to be typical Skinhead clothing?

What I'm trying to say is, if they were before 68 how can anyone, there after, be an original, surely to be original, you have to be an originator, so anything there after, is just copying.....if these chaps were Mods who were trying to give their look, a much harder aggressive look, then is not the same principle for 80's Skinheads doing the same, yet 80's Skinheads get slagged of for doing so......maybe people should use the term Early Skinheads, not original.

 

And whats with this term second wave for 79/80 skinheads,My step brother became a Skinhead in 1976, after he left school, just as Punk exploded and he was Skinhead not a Punk, some of his mates were Punks and as a nine year old kid, they frightened the life out me, but my brother looked the dogs bollocks,

but who gives a shit who came after who, original, 1st, 2nd , 3rd wave blah blah blah....
