Been looking some for a sheepskin, but i'm sorta having second thoughts; How well do they cope with rain? Will it ruin it? This is one rainy town

I guess it depends what's in the shops in a particular area and who are the influential blokes whose style gets copied.

Interesting to hear about les Minets still keeping it up!  Thanks for sharing.

Pics from the Renoma party in Paris, October 22, 2013. Notice the decoration around the golden years of Renoma. The old Minets were there indeed... Some originals from the "Drug".

I think this gentleman is on the picture behind him...

I didn't own one when I was a skinhead/suedehead (couldn't afford one) but I eventually bought one off of an older mate of mine in about 1976, he originally bought it from Petticoat Lane in 1970ish.

As described by A&E they tended to be three quarter length, slighter darker and definitely not patch pockets. What I clearly remember were the buttons, round, brown and shiny in a quarter pattern and attached with a bolt that screwed into the back of the button, not stitched on. Kept mine for years and stored it in the loft - went to look for it one day and found out the missus had chucked it out - I was heartbroken.

The ones we wore in my area at the time were from Harry Fentons at £35 - a fortune back then equal to around £700 now

Ours were 3/4 length - just above the knee.  I never took mine off for fear of it being nicked and even wore it in the summer.  It lasted for some 20 odd years before finally falling to bits after several tailored repairs.  an item of clothing fondly remembered.

I also ad a black one I bought off a mate in around 71 that ended up being used for work

Great coats

Thats a shame,I can remember your sheepskin very well, you sometimes wore a badge in the sheepskin lapel,I had a slightly darker one with brown sheepskin collar/lapels.

On e bay sheepskins seem quite reasonably priced,I am guessing that they are not too popular at the moment,I said that I wouldnt have another one but I did think that one would look good with jeans and a pair of brown Paraboot Michael.

They are a great coat for a dry cold day  IMO.

BTW,I hope that you have restricted  your mrs access to the loft now or your Monkey boots will be going missing next !

After being dragged around the shale football pitches for a while these jackets might have ended up looking rather decent, IMHO.

Great stuff!  I like the YouTube clip.  But I wish these chaps wouldn't wear their scarves in that bulky manner - that isn't mod.

post #15926 of 18915

I agree with you about the scarves, Mr Knightley. But after all they are not Mods, they are Minets...
