Space Agent...How more smug could Estate Agents get?
JS will likely be dubbed Sartorial Futures Investment Broker.

I really do not like these ads being inserted into posts.there is enough elsewhere on the site.
I understand the need to generate revenue,but ads inserted with someone's personal comments should be off limits IMO.
Not sure if this only happens when not signed in,but it is an intrusion nevertheless.

I noticed the ads a few weeks ago. I thought they were just under my posts at first, and it was something to do with my settings options. I was worried people on here would think I was some kind of corporate 'barker'. I then noticed them on other posts which was a relief.

Well, I say relief. I don't like seeing a product advertised under a comment I've posted, because it does infer that I endorse that product somehow. Especially bad when it's for a product I've passionately slagged-off in one of my previous posts. Or worse, when it's something that is the antithesis to anything in the Mod-Suedehead style spectrum.

Pffffftt !

A film/documentry on Ivy league style and its influence as a whole would/should feature JS and would do better and Id watch it.

Equally id watch this one if it was more then the same saddos involved, who were at the birth of every culture ever, knew everyone, shopped at every shop going and have amazing memory. Its just like we have discussed about the proposed book on here, id buy it in a heart beat if it was what pubs you drank at, first threads bought, who did you first see in the style, favorite clothes, what was a friday and saturday night etc rather then ''The working class and social divide made a juxtaposition in culture that shifted towards the..'  zzzzzzzz ! Piss off !

No, indeed!  I suppose I meant we (certainly I) should sometimes be more open-minded....

As for chambray,I think from what I read that it was a linen like cloth,now it seems to be a name for light denim or on occasion the colour ?,I had a look for chambray shirts on e bay and there was a lot of different items there,something else to cause confusion maybe.

 



Yes, I agree with you about RL shirts being fairly true to late 60s designs. I suppose the 80s had as big an impact on my sartorial development as the late 60s, and I came to accept the logo as part of the look. One of the few logos I can still stomach today for some reason is the polo player, so I have few qualms about buying his stuff, if it's otherwise OK.

BTW I think I saw your Ben Sherman harrington yesterday in Debenhams and very much liked it. I think a problem us i-gents have is that, in our pursuit of the 'authentic', we can too easily dismiss things that are not perceived to tick the right box. We should instead look for the intrinsic beauty in things.

The funny thing is that in 70/71 I would have preferred the Ben Nevis one because of the material and I suppose because that was the type that all my mates were wearing.

I wouldnt have known about the original ones being Baracuta,or that the stitching on the back was simulating vents.

Ben Sherman was the shirt that we all wanted,now I  have been disapointed with most of the BS shirts that I have seen for many years,so I dont usually even look in the BS section in a shop when I saw the BS harrington online and liked it,it was almost inspite of it being Ben Sherman.

Yes, I know what you mean.  Some years ago I bought a relatively inexpensive Ben Sherman suit.  Although it is black (not a colour I would buy today) it had an interesting cloth in a small self herringbone, good cut for me and well finished.   But I bought it despite it being Ben Sherman....

I'm actually reading "Skinheads", a fiction by John King. The novel covers three generations of a skinhead family: an Original from the 60s, his nephew who is an 80s "skin", and the teenager son of the Original, beginning his way into the culture. The three are Chelsea fans.

So, the novel draws on almost 45 years of evolving British (sub)culture. i won't speak of the book qualities, some like it, some don't.

But it made me think, and i wonder if among the Originals here (and the others) there are example of skinheads families, and how are, for example, the relations between a 60s reggae/ska and soul loving skinhead and his offspring, if there is some kind of the handing down of a tradition ?

Funny, I'm listening to the new Close Shave album(Oi! band from Brum[yeah I unabashedly love Oi!, shoot me!:happy:]), and the modern lineup features a younger guy whose photos have appeared on this forum, Jedd.  He is the son of one of the Close Shave members(perhaps Fluff the vocalist), and although Fluff more than likely isn't an original skinhead, but at least a late '70s revival skin, Jedd is a well turned-out kid who has the look down well.  Considering the new and quickly-growing generation of "skinheads" don't know the score and are first exposed to skinhead on the internet, Jedd's one of the good eggs.  Nice enough kid, too.

My (DM-wearing) daughter, aged 21, was actually at a Ska gig in Glasgow when the helicopter crashed through the roof. She's currently in her final year at Glasgow Uni studying Geography, and one of the minor subjects in one of her last course modules has to do with the historical/geographical aspect of the 'African Diaspora'; on this coming Thursday she is doing a presentation on the development of Ska, believe it or not, and I have provided her with a load of background information.

To give an example of parental influence over musical tastes - she has pretty wide tastes, as I do, but one interesting thing is that she detests modern 'chart' 'R&B', and refers to the Memphis and Tamla sounds as 'proper R&B'.
