Usually, they'll just tape some selvedge onto the bottom few inches of a non-selvedge jeans.
ahh I didn't know they did that

Not a fan of the pocket 'selvedge', so I'll be getting busy with the Singer sorting that straight out.

Eleven quid and from Tesco, so I ain't expecting too much.

Anyone have a line up on some decent strides that aren't too costly?

Detail. Detail. Detail. It was paramount the right droog look was found for A Clockwork Orange, thus multiple photos were taken of different costumes and hats. Stanley Kubrick and Milena Canonero viewed each one and circled the one they liked best. Image courtesy of University of Arts London Archive.

Found this interesting given the fastidious dress sense of the rudeboys:

 

"One of my early songs, Do the Reggay, is credited with coining the name – later spelt reggae – for the new music that emerged as rocksteady slowed down even further. I got the name from ragamuffin, the term for people in Jamaica who didn’t dress too good. The idea was that reggae was for everybody".

I am a bit puzzled by the fact that there is no arcuate on the back pocket of these '1969 606 jeans'.

 

But i remember this picture i posted a long time ago...

 ...And they do look very similar...

 

Any opinion from the original bunch (or the denim heads & LVC aficionados) ?

Never ever  recall ever seeing those jeans before?I know that any of the Orange tab's were always frowned upon by us.The pocket shape looks very weird to me also.More like an Edwin Nashville pocket than any other Levis IMO.These seem just too different to anything else that was widely worn.I wonder how they Sold at the time and if in fact were distributed in the UK?

Wonder how many of us would have even been into the "scene" without him? I'm sure there'd have been no revival, which is where most of "our" age started off (Even if it was years after the revival, I generally believe it was still the introduction to the whole scene)

I also wonder to what extent the originals were aware of his big ska tunes (One Step Beyond, Al Capone, etc), seeing as those predated the skinhead era by some 4-5 years?

A compilation named 'Fabulous Greatest Hits' came out in 1968. Was that a popular album with the class of 1969, or was it 'older brother music' by then?

Good questions, mate.

I am not sure if I was really aware of the roots of the music we listened to at the time. It wasn't until the revival era and bands like Madness that I began to understand.

I know it has been mentioned many times but it may be worth repeating that our tastes were pretty eclectic, and as well as Jamaican music we liked Motown, Atlantic / Stax, Chicago Blues and the British interpretation (Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall and so on) and also good old pop of the time. Some say that the release of In the Summertime by Mungo Jerry was one of the triggers for the move to suedehead / smooth...

For those interested in the roots, The Ad-Lib Club in Lincoln has quarterly ‘Back to the Roots’ evenings in a cellar bar. You can see the details on their FB page and our old chum browniecj is a regular guest DJ there.
