A typical Local Authority Film(boring).None of the "overspill" Towns look any good today.

What is not recorded is how many People wanted to move back to London.In the case of Tower Hamlets,the Residents were promised they could return to the new Houses-that the Council were building.That never happened.The usual comments were-nice House(all the Facilities etc.)but nothing like the old Neighbourhood.The Locals hated the newcomers,so animosity was there straightaway.I knew People that were shifted out to Basingstoke,Peterborough,Welwyn Garden City,Thetford etc.,they all hated it.

The paper boy clip brought back some memories.  When we were that age and a bit younger when we were delivering papers it was the norm to put a rear cycle rack on to the front of the bike so you could put the newspaper bag on the front .  This was then at an angle that made the job easier.

 

I have never  seen a picture of that action before - good find SB&S

Good photo Bunty

 

Shame the cool Mod is wearing his mums slippers together with his aunties Xmas present socks !!  Perhaps this is why we have so photos from the day as once they were developed they were torn up and binned due to realization of bad posing ?

 

 

The link you attached mentioned the Black Prince at Bexleyheath - this was a big coaching pub set on the A2 London to the Kent coast road and famous groups were still playing there in 69/70 I have happy memories of the venue.  I think its a travel lodge or something now - I must have a look its only a few miles away

I don't know what's going in with this Madras shirt. It is a Gant. It looks like two shirts made into one. Has anyone seen one like this before ?Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

Out of curiosity why the sudden turnaround by FP to acknowledge the historic link between the brand and skinheads? On a related topic, has anyone seen this?

Those sleeves definitely do look different lengths. It's pre-owned on US ebay.

I'm guessing those Relco strides will be cut like their other sta-prest.

I have seen football shirts done like that in the past....some of those Gant shirts look ok,I wish they would leave the logo off,do they think that people buy shirts because of the logo ?.

I think that sta-prest were intended for teenagers,if the Relco trousers are cut like that they aren't going to suit many people over 20,I didn't think that sta-prest looked good on most of the girls who wore them "back in the day" either.

The back of the shirt is just as much of a dog's-dinner. Never got the whole (usually overpriced company) logo on the front of shirt. Especially on a dress shirt. I saw a kid wearing a Ralph Lauren polo shirt last year. The (bloke on an' 'orse) logo was about 8 inches high. Nowt wrong with a little logo on a polo, but paying over the odds for the privilege of being an unpaid advertising-billboard is mental.

When I've seen those Relco trousers for sale they're usually being modelled by a fella in their late 30s/early 40s. So I think they're definitely aimed at the older gent. Shame they don't fit us too good.

I know that sometime in the near future, I'm probably going to see some 'youth' in a FP polo, with a pair of green/gold Tonic Sta-Prest hanging right round their arse and wearing trainers.

Thanks. Not surprisingly, I've seen it before - it's an old post. smile.gif

I wore Madras b/d shirts pre-Ben-Sherman days, but nothing quite as hideous and thrown-together as this!

This sad story stayed in the headlines (TV, papers, radios) last year for at least ten days. Wouldn't have been the case if skinheads were not involved. Unfortunately, the brawl turned deadly. I was in the mentioned sale the day before the events. Not all written in this article is correct. Media simplification as usual.

I see they didn't try to split the collar,probably impossible.

The mentality with those huge Ralph Lauren logos seems to be if I am going to spend £xx on a shirt I want people to know that I spent it.

Maybe its just me but I have seen Ralph Laren,Gant and Hackett shirts that I thought looked good,what stopped me buying them was the logos.

I suppose that people sewing Levi or Wrangler labels onto their denim jackets years ago was the same thing really.

Just recently spoke with someone at the Edwin Jeans shop in London to check and see if my favourite cut ED-49's were actually being discontinued.Yet again,I find something that fits perfect and i like,only to see it pulled from production ! Anyway,while chatting to the very helpful bloke,he mentioned that the company were going to be doing a collaboration with Dr Martens this year and produce a limited edition for them that probably would be a "Skinhead Cut".I think he mentioned September time.
