Haha, the top ones are definitely 'schoolboy'. Think I would aspire to the bottom ones these days, but yes fairly dangerous even back then.

Well, that's one benevolent comment at least. Seems to have gone down like a lead balloon with everyone else, haha.

 

I still like it.

First wave of 'Casuals ' were Soul Boys who like our lot had been 'baby skins ' in 69 / 70 ... the Oi / Bonehead / two tone  lot did jump on the casual bandwagon a year or so later in 83  ( as with original Mod / Skin a year in Casual was ages ... could always spot em for never getting the 'details right ' and the shit Madness Tatts 

 

Lets be brutally honest anyone over 35 is going to look a bit soppy in boots n braces or a Fila BJ and Trimm Trabbs ..

Its still true to a certain extent, i live on a council estate and there is still a problem with violence/delinquency, its even worse in a way due to all the drugs around these days.

 

As for the segs, i will still have them put on lol, i will risk ice skating lol.

post #24260 of 25651

Yep, I'm one for segs.

post #24261 of 25651

From personal experience i would avoid the 'segs', because they are fixed with nails, and sooner or later you'll loose them. 

This is better i think, done by a proper cobbler it should last :

 

 

This is for horses i suppose ?

Found these offered by some Malaysian guy on a skinhead related FB page. A bit of a Frankenstein thing I suppose, but the closest I'd ever wear to an MA-1. Given the price (around 30 quid for a "FP" jacket), I strongly suspect they're fake, but I think I'm in love. What do you guys reckon?

I'm surprised that I like this as much as I do especially since I've never been fond of the bomber look (always was more of a Harrington fan).
The only thing that I'd be bothered by is the fact that its most likely snide...

Hahahaha that gave me a laugh:happy:

 

They remind me of what used to be on the bottom of ammo boots and old pit boots, and other ww2/old work boots.

I grew up in a middle class family, having everything we needed. I am a really peaceful person, never been into a proper fight. I have plans for the future, i would like to go to uni to study psichology or music. What do you think, people like me can be skinheads?

Segs/quarter-tips/Blakeys take a bit of getting used to at first. I'd say less than a day worth of wearing out and about though. I haven't had many 'Bambi on the ice' slip-arsing about moments.

They're quite handy for the Tube. When it's rush-hour and some out-of-towner is standing in the way on the left-hand side of the escalator, the ominous clang of metal on metal as I walk up behind them usually makes them move out the bleedin' way. So they're good on the Underground.

Blakeys definitely work on the buses too.

Ha! Blakey-On the buses-Get that bus out, Butler! 

I used to wear blakeys on a pair of jodhpur boots, at school. We used to slide down the school corridor. Headmaster ended up banning them. Too dangerous for my liking.

Gents,

 

Do we have any clearer idea about the next meetup in November?

 

Not sure what dates have been suggested, but how do the weekends starting Fri 11 Nov and Fri 18 Nov sound?

So far, we've got Mr Knightley saying he's ok for Fri 18, and DJ saying he prefers Fri 18 as well. Myself, I'm flexible.

 

The suggestion was to meet at the Metropolitan at Baker Street station.

 

As for evening entertainment, there are two Oi events taking place on both weekends. I realise that isn't everyone's cup of tea, but just in case anyone fancies coming along...

 

Fri 11 Nov from 6pm:

Brutus winter festival with The Crack & Aggressors BC & The Upset & Arch Rivals & others (two of the bands play reggae and ska, the rest play Oi) @ Fiddler's Elbow, Kentish Town. No tickets yet, but will probably be about £10 admission. For event page click here.

 

Sat 19 Nov from 8pm:

Murdaball & Underclass UK & others @ T Chances, Tottenham (right next to where the Tottenham Royal was 'back in the day'). £5 admission. For event page click here 

 

I'll also be on the lookout for soul, reggae, and other suitable events in Nov and will keep you updated.

This whole thing is the sidebar of all sidebars but I couldn't help but chime in! 😄The La's were a great band-- but my man, "Waterloo Sunset" is an absolute masterpiece. Just perfect.
