That is the great thing about this site...people pulling together ..getting to the bottom of things, I had a drink before Christmas with a load of old ex Kilburn Skinheads, its was funny what people remembered, but one thing all remembered was Royals... The price.... and getting them from the Ivy shop Richmond. It was such a big occasion. The price and knowing as a Skinhead you arrived,
Just to add i,am sure we wore Harry Fenton shirts before Ben Shermans ?
It is great. Royals - the first pair (1969 for me) was a real occasion as you say.
Did Harry Fenton sell Brutus and/or Jaytex? And Reiss in their very early days sold a passable BD - about 1968, I recall. I had a black and white gingham one.
