The only person I recognise for certain is the lad front middle, Ray Wilkinson, funny enough he lived in West Kilburn 2 mins walk from where i did..we also went to school together..but he hung around with the Neasden mob..
The school i went to Aylestone High, was in Brondesbury Park which bordered on Kilburn and Willesden, so you had lads from both mobs going to the same school.

I remember that a slight 'gangster' influence crept into mod clothes, very briefly, in 1967 up in Blackpool. This was due to the movie Bonnie and Clyde. Maybe the bloke with the white tie is showing left-overs from the same influence down his way? Just guessing.

A brave policeman. Seems the thug got eight years for the attack (and probably a kicking down the police station).

As for the Italian style of 60s cinema, I think Marcello Mastroianni was one of the best dressed gents, especially in Otto e Mezzo. The square, Prada spr07f he wears, are the best sunglasses I've ever seen.

I must admit  I had to Google those Prada shades.  They are fantastic but I don't recall that style featuring in the skinhead wardrobe.  Don't they look bang up to date today?

I remember lads wearing the plain coloured Ben Shermans that we have already talked about here ( red,navy,black ) with a white tie in 71,I wasnt keen on the plain white tie idea ( and I am not now ) I prefer ( ed ) a striped tie..

I have thought about a black button down recently,but finding one with long sleeves and slim fit has proved impossibe so far.

I recall a 70s variation on that theme - chocolate brown shirt and cream tie. Yuk! The view implicit in my sartorial upbringing was that the tie should always be darker than the shirt. I'm sure I have broken the rule on occasions.....

Well it looks as if they already started the beating according to some of those pictures.

Yes I remember that brown and cream look ,probably with beige trousers ?.

How would that rule work with a black shirt ? the only thing I can think of is  a tie with black stripes,say black and light blue ?.

As I contentiously said earlier,I never saw black shirts with suits being worn as that was a classic Rocker/Ted look.you only need to look at the images of Alvin Stardust,Showaddywaddy etc and their mockery of the styles to see how strong it was.Like everything,along comes a photo debunking my comments:)
There is always a joker in the pack who has questionable taste and that Pompey example with the clashing white tie personifies it.



IMO the only way to wear a black shirt with a dark jacket at that time was with contrasting trousers,but that's just my opinion;)

I have to say that it was more a widespread fashion here than a one off,some lads wore red shirts with a plain white tie,as I said I dont like white ties anyway but thats a personal choice.

I think that a black shirt would look ok with the right coloured suit,again personal choice,I just think that its a bit difficult to get a tie to fit in.

Must have been a lot of jokers where you were ); 

 

I'm nauseous at the thought of it.....What year was this?

I think that it was 71...we talked about the Ben Shermans a while back,they were in dark colours ( except the red one ) they were a light material.
