Too provocative for the majority,these styles were diluted and cherry picked,to provide a new mainstream uniform.
It would be around 75/76 that Fleet St would get to enjoy a truly new youth movement in Punk.One that crossed the Atlantic and was equally at home in Wardour St and The Bowery.
Mods looked to Miles,Glam to Bolan etc. but Skinheads and Punks ?it's well documented that Skinheads grew out of Mods,but there was no "Role Models" for either that I can recall apart from your mates? I have never researched it,but wonder if the early Rockers were following the look of Gene and Eddie or in fact had preceded it?
