To be honest I cannot recall. I only had one pair as I wasn't keen on them either.

Is that because you favoured bespoke for a better fit / better styling?
Or did you opt for higher-end off the shelf?

Me personally,went for other styles-Levi Cords(later) or just the Jeans for knocking about in.Going out semi smart,wore better Trousers.

I am glad you put up those photos.Another thing that gets me is the stitched turn-ups on Jeans.I had them rolled up and stitched at the Seams,the other Mob took the edging off and stitched them onto the Jean.To me that looks awful.

Agreed.

Regarding sta-prest it is hard to remember at this distance and with few remaining photos exactly what I wore on a day to day basis. Certainly Levis for casual wear with a turn-up as described by browniecj (mine were caught in a couple of additional places to stop them coming down!), cords at some point as well as tailored trousers in plain or dogtooth cloth.

There was certainly a sense in my area of wanting to dress just a little smarter / more formally – whatever the occasion. So on a bank holiday at Southend most skinheads would be dressed for action where I would be wearing M&S botany wool V neck over a BD or FP, dogtooth trousers (MTM or bespoke) and Royals.

It would have been nice to dress up for the seaside, but my g/f and I wanted to go into the funfair, so it had to be jeans.

This (a now well-known pic of me) is at Margate.

In the early Bank Holidays,it was certainly Jeans,Slipovers and Boots-with FPs(`69).Later we were going to the IOW(staying away from Brighton etc.),where we would dressed up and visit a Pub in Ryde.The Landlord would make us very welcome(sandwiches,the works).Certainly Mohair Trousers,Royals etc.Good days!!!smile.gif

What seems funny now is that there are two Skinhead Dos(a year) on the IOW.Both in Ryde(Jim Cox doing one).Yet when we went there we never saw any others.That is why it was refreshing to go somewhere and no one had a negative Attitude.We took our Girlfriends and had a great time.

Jim Cox's last year at the Island this year. All 60's reggae, rocksteady and ska.
There's another half way up the hill, in a basement which is Reggae with a bit of soul mixed in.
Both good nights.
Will be at both this year (as usual).

You back again this year?

Could give it a try.Have not been back to Ryde since the 60s,could be interesting.I expect the Pub is long gone."Hole In The Wall" was a very apt name,because that is what it was(very small inside as well).smile.gif
