The reggae record in question could be Martin Riley - Walking proud.

if memory serves I think it's from the paragraphs I copied from Kevin Rowland's bit in the book "The Look" by John Gorman. he calls skinhead the "great lost look"

I was at school and was always in awe of a group of Fifth Formers when I was about second year. They seemed to have Mod down to a fine art. A couple of them appeared on RSG and I guess they were only too happy to set aside their 'values' temporarily for the exposure...

Hi all..Just a quick question for the originals regarding braces. Were
braces ever worn back then dangling around the arse, or is that a
strictly late 70's-80's development? Never liked that look myself. Cheers.

It wasn't something one saw all that often, it wasn't a point of style or anything like that, so don't take it as typical. However, there were odd occasions when it happened. For example, take this piece of newsreel from 1964 - at about 01:20 you'll see three lads mucking about, one being dragged into the sea. They're actually mods having a good time (frustratingly for the newsreel!). One is stripped to the waist and his braces are dangling. Obviously this is a place/situation where the 'look' has been relaxed for a while. Okay I know this is 1964, but so many of the things we knew in 1969 had been carried on from beforehand. By 1969 I had been wearing braces for at least three years, and I can't remember a single instance of having them dangling, but I could imagine it happening somewhere like the beach...

I can recall having done so when I dragged out some of my old gear during the punk era, but that's another matter. It always struck me that that particular look borrowed something from the visual style of the punks' bondage trousers.

Which brings me on to something for the book. I would like members of 'The Firm' (the 'originals' from this forum) to say specifically what they think the revivals/revivalists got wrong! Controversial, I know, but I think it'll go well in the book. There's nothing like a good bit of controversy!

Does anyone know where you can get a pair of Solatio loafers.  Also can't remember as far as skinhead fashion goes, did loafers come out before brogues, I seem to remember wearing loafers first but a mate reckons he was wearing brogues before loafers.

Don't remember anyone wearing their braces dangling in 70 - 71 era.
