holding up well. I think the lesser quality leather on the MiE boots are actually better for holding up to going to a show and getting your feet stomped on tho.

When I (very briefly) lived in London, getting around via public transport was incredibly easy, but up North it's a lot harder! That may, at least partially, explain why scooters were still popular with original Skinheads up here. Of the ones I know, a sizeable amount would travel considerable distances to attend soul clubs and to buy clothes. I think, as we keep discovering, there were certainly regional differences and, I suppose, the world was a 'bigger' place back then before the era of widespread car ownership and the Internet!

As regards taking up Levis: you're only as young as you feel! If you look at films from the '60's, particularly from America, you see really quite old men wearing short trousers. You Original Skinheads have decades to go yet! I always do mine by hand, so you can't see the stitches on the outside. It's called a 'blind hem' and is always 'blinder' done by hand. Any seamstress should know the term.

Little Queenie - Great point about regional differences - you will find me a bit London-centric even though I try hard not to be!

Thanks for the 'blinder' advice and for the vote of confidence. Being here a couple of days has already given me a shot in the arm

And because he would not have been allowed to smile. Not cool.

I like paisley scarves, even a tie with the right jacket/outfit, but paisley shirts always seemed too "groovy" for me, like a halfway point to becoming a beatnik/hippy.

Don't you just HATE the modern way of wearing a scarf? From kids to groovy grannies....that effing loop, that looks like a hangman's noose...argghhhhh!
Do you originals remember wearing shirts hanging out? Like mid 90's britpoppers? The shirts were obviously tailored and tail-less and hanging out would just cover the belt loops? Seen some photos of this 'fad' not sure if it was moddy (sort of mid 60's) or not?

Thanks for all the info. regarding grandad shirts everyone.

It was not unknown to see someone wearing, say, a short-sleeved Brutus outside his pants in summertime. It was never a big thing, though.

Nice video! I just hate how Dr martens cracks in creases. I am not the only one with this problem and regular polishing doesn't help but they look nice in your pictures above. How long do you have them?

btw, is this look of skinhead girls of 60s?

Thanks, well that's the main difference between the MiE boots and the "For Life" boots. MiE uses the normal correct grain leather, the FL boots use a more supple full grain leather so it doesnt "crack" in the creases, just naturally wrinkles as leather should

happen to be wearing my MiE boots today...no cracks but doesnt look as good in the stress points where your toes bend against the foot, compared to the FL boots.
