We have a (brand new) pair for sale in the charity shop that don't have that kind of laces. Want me to have a look what size they are?

Very interesting answers about tattoos, by the way.

Hmmmmmmm....

 

I snapped up a straight, fly-fronted one really cheap at a vintage clothes shop yesterday.

 

 

The collar looks like this with the top button undone:

 

And like this with the top button done up:

 

Total fail?

Slightly more flare in the collar in the closed position would be my preference, raising the collar a bit at the back should do it. No need to be too fussy with a raincoat though. No flat lapels like in your top photo, just let it roll and flap. It should fit like it looks a size too big on you.

Would rather get a vintage Donkey off ebay or a vintage shop for the same price, the pvc shoulders and wool seem to be different on modern versions, never seen pocket flaps on vintage donkeys like the modern ones too, they seem to have more of a fashion cut on them compared to old donkeys.

 

In my opinion bob has it right about boots, i prefer my 6 eyes compared to my 8 eyes, alot of the modern uns go overboard with boots in my opinion.

Not a Donkey Jacket, not quite a Peacoat either. A 1960s wool Fechheimer NOS/Deadstock Chicago Police Dept patrolman's tunic I bought for a tenner a while back.

Never worn it, never will either. I suppose I could sell it on to some bearded 'hipster' Berkshire huntsman.

Yes.

Next question?

I can see what you're saying, but it's not a hugely important item in my wardrobe, and I'll probably only wear it for practical purposes... like walking to the swimming pool and back in cold weather. So, the Pop Boutique one was a no-brainer. 

 

As for boots... I suppose it's a matter of personal preference. But also, much as I hate to get all Gok Wan about it, clothes do look different on different people. Being tall, 11 eye boots (with 7-8 eyes showing) look just right on me. I could probably go even higher without giving too much of a fetish/bonehead impression. Then again, maybe not...

 

If you're short, on the other hand, you want to avoid high boots as they'll make your legs look absurdly short. Case in point, check out the guy with the Slade t-shirt. He isn't doing himself any favours.

Found this in an old copy of Glasgow skinhead fanzine, 'Spy Kids'. A parody of advertisement sheets from the famous Whitechapel clobber shop, The Last Resort.

Yes there is a fair bit of truth in that. They ripped me off for the United Skins lp, cashed the cheque but sent nothing. I put it down to me having a very obviously immigrant first and last name. Had visited a couple of times and saw the non-Ben Shermans and Levis with tags sliced off (seconds?) but to be fair Ben Shermans/Levis/stapress seemed to have generally disappeared from sale by 1982/3. So not a great deal of love lost from me, always remember the look I got when the bloke asked my name lol, Skrewdriver playing in the background lol. But 'Spy Kids' ffs and Spirit of '69, that is just another sort of bullshit I would not have wanted much to do with, had it even existed back then.

Saw something for sale recently that looked like a cross between a donkey jacket and a peacoat so yes, be careful. Wish I still had my old one, had plenty of life in it even though the pvc was ripped a little. The label said simply 'Made by British workers for British workers'.
