As for the political rubbish, it's nowt to do with me, if people want to point and think whatever, thats up to them.

The only thing i try to do with a black shirt, is give it a bit of ping with contrasting and lighter colurs.

As always personal taste plays a part in what we buy and wear.

I was trying to remember who I had met recently,who was wearing a Black Shirt Basset.Then you put your photo up.I do not think of the Political connection(it was 50+ years ago-before my time).Mind you,I would not wear a red one-more recent !!!

I've not seen 'em Bunty - nice one.

FTR: I've lived in Didsbury since 1981. (Don't recognise any of those pictured, though.) satisfied.gif

Seems LVC is reissuing some classic styles as per usual.  I stumbled upon this cardigan, and I thought it looked a bit like one the Originals© would wear.  Nice color anyways, would look good with a button-down, faded jeans, and some Hawkins Astronauts.

I don't know much about Mr Mott, but he definitely has a better understanding about Skinheads than the 'university diversity officer' does. I also think my wife has. My wife doesn't speak for all black people, like the 'diversity officer' does (even though she is black). Though, unlike the 'diversity officer', she knows the difference between a racist, muggy-bonehead-cliché and real life.

Well, as a late '80s London skinhead band said, "...the day society accepts your type -- that's the day that Skinhead dies..."

It's absolutely ironic that a so-called "Diversity Officer" was making objections.  You've gotta love the "liberal" academic types.

Sounds like something Dave Spart would be involved in.

'Media appropriation'? 'Gender and Sexuality'? 'Class, Politics and Race'?

'The Sniffer's Tale'. That was a proper documentary. From the same series of docs as 'The Knocker's Tale'. It's never been repeated, even though it was definitely football.

There is something Orwellian about 'University Diversity Officer' isn't there ? A history revisionist if ever I saw one.

Greetings. Been stalking this forum/thread for YEARS and finally decided to hop on board. An incredible wealth of info on here. I've always been intrigued by (or should I say obsessed with) late mod, skinhead and suedehead fashion/culture. Big fan of early ska, rocksteady and reggae up to 1970 as well as 60s 'mod' bands. I was involved with the traditional skinhead scene (or as close as it could get to traditional 20 years on....) in NYC in the late 80s (I'm 45 now). I know the Reggae Wembley 1970 film has been posted here before but I don't if this hi-def clip of Desmond Dekker and skinhead girls was posted (apologies if it has been).
