Bearing in mind that what we called a 'Crombie' back in the day was a style rather than a make (it was the Biro or Hoover of dark blue overcoats, if you see what I mean), as everyone above has indicated, then I do recall one or two girls wearing coats that had the crombie idea, but were tailored for the female figure. Also a similar cut was available, in other colours, as a lightweight coat in Trevira.post #22849 of 248822/3/16 at 2:23ampost #22850 of 248822/3/16 at 7:14am
I can see where you are coming from Botolph,but like the Crombie,The Covert is made from it's namesake fabric.The defining difference of a Covert would be the four or five rows of stitching along the hem and cuffs.Apart from that,style wise is shares most things with a Crombie as we know it.I disagree about the requisite Red linining however as others have stated.I don't recall the girls ones being particularly fitted either? Certainly not like the other styles (Mod-ish tweed?) that have been posted.Though that did happen withe the Trevira/POW Suits that they wore. I 'm guessing these girls were pre skinhead.The shoes and (BOAC?) bag next to the girl in the van sways me in that direction.post #22851 of 248822/3/16 at 7:33ampost #22852 of 248822/3/16 at 11:05am
The term 'Herbert' goes back generations in East London. My grandfather who would be 120 years old today used the term and so did my dad. Other terms for young men were 'Hounds' and 'Roosters'. Definitely not words created by skinheads. 'Sort' however I believe to be a Skinhead created word.post #22853 of 248822/3/16 at 11:32ampost #22854 of 248822/3/16 at 12:03pmQuote:Originally Posted by Bela Kun
MoM: I understand that in the 1980s, 'herbert' was used in the Sounds/Gary Bushell universe to describe someone who follows Oi! music, but is neither skinhead nor punk. He might wear a Harrington, shaggy hair, and is more of an ordinary looking geezer. A bit like a casual, only not as well dressed. Cockney Rejects and East End Badoes are two bands that, I guess, embody the 'herbert' archetype.
Tom Mc666 might be able to tell us more about herberts, though, as I believe a certain band recorded a 'herbert version' of their hit song, Chaos.
The term herbert has been about a good few years, roughly meant you herbert as in you mug or idiot or a bunch of herberts..... its later use around music, god knows, your definition is right, I suppose it must have just sounded rightpost #22855 of 248822/3/16 at 1:11pm
This 3/4 length sheepskin coat came in my mail today. Made by Antartex of Scotland some time in the distant past. Four football buttons are on their way.
I suppose it's somewhat different to the original 1969/70 sheepskins - for one, the pockets aren't slanted, and I guess the cream colour would have been 'unusual' back then?
But the fit is amazing, and the coat really looks stylish with dark indigo Levi's and oxblood boots.
What does the skinhead fashion police think?post #22856 of 248822/3/16 at 9:40pmQuote:
There were a lot of these about in mid-late 1969 around my neck of the woods. A lot of the younger birds wore them as school coats apart from anything else.post #22857 of 248822/3/16 at 9:41pmpost #22858 of 248822/4/16 at 1:10ampost #22859 of 248822/4/16 at 5:41ampost #22860 of 248822/4/16 at 9:52am
I know this isn't strictly clothing related but I'm researching a BBC Four documentary about skinheads and I'm trying to speak some women who were skinheads in the late 1960s /early 1970s. Does anyone know any former skinhead girls?
If so (they don't need to still follow the fashions now), please can you drop me a message and I can give you my details for how they can get in touch.
I'm really enjoying the thread!
