If I put my shades on, you can't see the bags under my two-peeholes-in-the-snow, and it takes 10 years off me! biggrin.gif

I hope @Clouseau won't mind but I have edited his pic a little to try to make it lighter:

Three top blokes. Browniecj arrived a few seconds later... 

Then the 80s lot, Covskin and Inks...

Great afternoon.

Just realised how bunched-up the sleeves on my coat are. I look like I've just shoplifted a pair of concertinas.

I was the 'baby' of the bunch that day, but I still managed to look like Harry Worth hanging out with some young 'uns.

Here are a few more pics, and I'm glad to say Inks has got his sleeves sorted out!


Mr Knightley and Clouseau (Good grief - he's even tall sitting down!)


Covskin and Inks listening in rapt attention to Mr K


Clouseau and browniecj


We sent 'the boys' round to sort out that John Simons bloke...


... 'the boys' being Aces&Eights, Clouseau. Inks, and Mr Knightley.

I also remember a guy who lived on our street whom we called "Harry Worth" but that was probably the case for many of us back then. .

Some pre-skinhead era braces modelled by the Beatstalkers from Glasgow:

Not to mention some utterly hideous pre-rupert-era ruperts!

The Beatstalkers were a very popular band in Scotland at that time and almost caused a riot when they hosted a free concert in Glasgow's George Square . My Mate Larry , who was in a band called Colin and the Keymen , was a friend of big Davie (far left in the photo) . The Beatstalkers shared the same manager as a guy called Davie Jones (soon to become David Bowie) and the manager kept asking the band to cover his stuff but the band kept refusing because they wanted to play their own stuff. Bizarrely , if I remember correctly, the band broke up after the van with all their gear in it was stolen. .

The most bizarre outfit has to be the one worn by Eddie(far right) . .

I picked this up from Pete Heed's Facebook page - I'm sure he won't mind. Then again, I'm sure we've had this one before. Anyway. I've put some numbered comments on it. First off, however, Pete and his friends identified themselves as 'mods' throughout the skinhead era. The original on Facebook was captioned 'Southend 1968'. Some of the items worn seem 1969 IMO, but no matter.

Click to see a bigger version.



1. There are plenty of V-neck sweaters. A number of the blokes seem to have pulled on a v-neck without a shirt or a T underneath.

2. This is an interesting figure, with a style that appears very mainstream 'mod'. He seems to be wearing a light-coloured trucker jacket, and some kind of shirt with the collar done up to the neck and worn outside the neckline of a crew-neck. That idea - buttoned up and collar coming over the crewneck - is something I had seen in Northern mods in 1966/67. The shirt itself could well be a light-coloured version of a long-sleeve polo-type; I had one like that, with that distinctive collar, in 1968, though mine was dark blue. I saw a young mod with exactly the same shirt as mine (plus Levis, loafers, and a 'French crop') in Bromley in 1968.

3. A sheepskin in summer. Some people were prepared to sacrifice comfort for style! biggrin.gif

4. Harrington. We started wearing them in S E London in late '68. It must have been after I made my second trip back up North, because I never went north in a Harrington.

5. One of the young women in this photo who looks emphatically non-skinhead (i.e. no feather-crop, etc.).

6. He appears to be wearing a striped button-down.

7. The shortest haircut in this picture. I think that's Pete Heed himself, but it's difficult to tell because he's pulling a face.

8. A girl with a 'Little Queenie' hairstyle. (Yes, she's wearing a bra and a towel - someone had just dumped her in the sea, and she was drying off.)

Not a bad suit the bloke in the middle has.
