The Rudies seemed to like the Royals Plain Caps,/Smooths, The Brogue worn by Skinheads was the so called American Brogues, Which was the Long Wing Tip. The English Brogue is different and if worn by the ignorant ...you would have had the piss taken out of you.smile.gif

What about the guy with the mustache at 01:34? I've seen a few pics of originals with 'taches. Specially from up north. How common was it?

Also, going back a few pages, from what I understood, original Ben Shermans had no V on the sleeves. Is that right? When did they start having the V?
Also, check out this shirt, it's a 1964 record by Brazil's most popular singer, Roberto Carlos:

I've always liked this shirt. V on the sleeves, but no buttons.
Does anyone know which brands back in the 60's had the V on sleeves thing?
Also, in the original skinhead days, were shirts with sleeves like this (V but no buttons) around?

The lad with a Tach is Jim Garret ..he is the only Skinhead i ever saw with one,... at the time i thought it was a bit odd, but never got around to ask him why he had one, biggrin.gif

Anyone seen this footage, does't look to be '71? Might just be the year the documentary was released rather then when it was shot.
The Greaser line dance is the pretty dumb :P:

^Its from the DVD extras to 'Here we go Round the Mulberry Bush'. I remember the pamphlet saying it was shot '68 but can't remember for sure.

If anyone took the piss out of me for wearing English brogues nowadays they would get the rough edge of my tongue. smile.gif

Incidentally, I remember that blokes in London did wear other types of brogues before American wing-tips became really big in 1969.

Another great find, nice to see a playground with a 'Witch's hat' again biggrin.gif

Buttons - Thanks for posting the photos of your Harry Fenton shirt. I was pretty sure that I had one as a kid (from a charity shop in the 80s) and looking at your pics, it was too, the yellowy/mustard one as stated ...you could find tons of original stuff if you weren't too proud to rummage through rails in an Oxfam shop.

So true, Bunty.
Spent a lot of the 80s rummaging around charity shops etc - a bag of jems every week. Original Bennies for 10/-.
Just a shame I was as skinny as a rake back then, so most of its moved on.
Still wearing various knitwear, boots, sheepskins etc I bought in the 80s though.

As for tasches, I'm assumin it wasn't a 'skinhead style' as such - just personal prefernce. Had a look last night and think I found 8 pics from 69-70 of skinheads with one.

I remember bunking into the Essoldo Kilburn to watch this film in 68 ? It was a X Film..and considered naughty for the times,smile.gif

I noticed with the pics of the Harry Fenton Shirt is made of Poly/Cotton mix, Am sure the Ben Shermans of the time was 100% cotton, but American imports from the Ivy shop was also Ploy/Cotton mix, It seemed everything that came out then was permanent press, smile.gif

In the above article John Simons mentioned Skinheads He always seemed in denial that Skinheads ever shopped in his shop,smile.gif

If it was not for the Skinheads spending so much money in the Ivy shop..he could not of opened the Squire shop and later the Village gate shops.
