On the point of skinhead style dying out in London, not the case in my experience. Knew, from 72-75, a couple of skinheads - Binnsy and Terry Madden, at school, and there were others, but very low numbers!. During the Kings Road fights against the Teds, starting in 76, a few skinhead were there - on both sides - and then into 77, an increase in numbers around Sham.

Case solved. Thanks Tom. And it's very interesting to know for sure that there were still skinheads in London in the early/mid seventies...

 Of more concern is what they are doing!!!!!!!!!!

 

Looks like Roy was spot on with this one from the outset..............

Actually Roytonboy, we already saw that picture back on the thread, and we all knew they were gay. The question was (as usual on this forum about pictures) the date.

 

Skinhead girls too...

Looks like at least the '80s with the cropped top and bangs.

Craigmatthew, how's the fit on these? Do you happen to know the hem measurement? I'm not toothpick-shaped enough for Warrior staprest and these MRude's look a little more 'forgiving'. I'm happy with the Brooks Brothers Clark lightweight chinoswhich are 100% cotton... but the poly/cotton blend of the M Rude's would likely hold a crease better.

Stuart's London said the waist is true to size but I am getting mine taking in a bit as they were a bit big for me,good around the thigh too and a standard leg length of 34 will post up a few pics once I get them back from the tailors

Nice One.Now we Know.I still don't believe there were Gay skins in the early days.I think its a case of the Gays being into Macho Dudes.I'm thinking of creating a new "Village People" and there will def be a Skinhead in the bunch(and a Chav as well);)

There's nothing dodgy going on in that photo. They're just changing trousers for the photoshoot. I've seen the next photo in this sequence, and their jeans different. They're all bleach spattered.

Their was no outwardly Gay skinheads in the late 60s, and as people know Gays was not tolerated back then especially with the white and black working classes, also as people are aware some skinheads would go queer bashing....which was deplorable...without going over old ground ..Britain was a very different place back then.

I have not a clue the dates of the above photos ..but one thing they are not from the period 68 to 70..or pushing it 71.....regarding skinheads in the early 70s..72 to say 75...I was still active in the Kilburn mob, going to football, discos etc .....now if their was still skinheads in numbers around 72/75 in London..i would have seen them....and if their was they would have been laughed at as backward..remember skinheads was a fashion.

I am only going on what i saw and lived through at that time, other people may have a different opinion which is fair enough.

It's hard to imagine given the attitude at the time and the fact that the majority of original Skins were young kids who even if they were Gay would not have acknowledged it even in there own minds.

I know exactly what you're saying Roy.

 

Purely from the clothes and nothing else, I always had the pictures down as Early 70's.

 

Behind the times? yes. Gay? looks like it. 

 

We don't really know if its London either way, just as a Northerner, I thought it was South. Could even be Brighton (as there is a Queens Road in Brighton......... Or more than one ;))
