Hello all! I'm here to ask a few questions about hair. I don't know if most have problems in this area like I do so I was hoping for helpful input or maybe advice on what I just don't know. My hair seems to be cut pretty close to that Ivy League/ Skin style, but I have problems keeping my hair the way I want, it always seems to fall out of place and I can't seem to part it at all. Did you original skins ever use hair products for the parting and holding of your hair? I don't want to use pomade because, well that's for the grease right? biggrin.gif And I don't think hairgel was around at the time, which just leaves my hair crispy anyways, so any input would be great gentlemen!
PS. If needed I can post a picture of my hair to see if it's even cut in a decent manner.

I remember seeing this site mentioned somewhere in the thread, im sure of it, but i can't seem to find mention of it - does anyone have any experience with these harringtons? they're stupidly cheap ($40 posted to australia... you can't buy a new harrington here for anything less than three times that). it's almost cheap enough to just buy without worrying but I may as well check -

This is the site I have discovered thanks to Jason and this thread:

http://www.bennevisclothing.com/

Made in England and a very good price too. The lifestyle ones don't state where they are made, do they?

Definitely mate, unless you want tacky Ben Sherman 'business' style stuff or one or two styles of overpriced Fred Perry polos it's pretty much just down to opshopping or online sales. A local store has just started stocking Mikkel Rude shirts, don't like the cut of them personally - the sleeves sit too high and that opinion-polarising v-cut with button doesn't sit right with me. Beautiful fabric and patterns though.

 

Thanks for that link Brideshead - I was sure I'd seen it posted somewhere before (I've been going through this thread for a second time trying to pick up stuff I might've missed). The lifestyle site doesn't specify where it's made which means you can probably guess where they're from.

 

On the topic of shirts anyway, anybody know of some decent short-sleeve button downs in solids or checks that have a longer sleeve length than the v-cut style?

can vouch for these, the best one next to the not so affordable baracuta's. Top quality, much better then warrior and the alike cheaper ones. Feels like a proper well made jacket.

I find that Brooks Brothers s/s shirts are too long for me - the sleeves hit almost at the elbow, and they have a straight across cut. Maybe those would suit you? And if you find them too long, you could always hem them.

I got a JTG harrington the other week. Burgundy, raglan sleeve. It feels pretty great, and I can't wait to actually wear it outside. It was -12C last week, 8C today and going back down 16 degrees tonight. The weather is just teasing me right now.
The downside is that the colour is a little lighter than the pictures (not by much, but it's noticeable) and I wish it had a two-way zipper...

Just a heads up, fredperry.com is having a big sale right now with free shipping to the US.

Hello all, wow, I'm surprised this is still going after 3 years and 345 pages. I suppose we all still love that original skinhead look.

I want to bump this since I have the same question. As I'm getting older and the hair stars to thin I don't want to cut too short but I want to keep it parted and neat.

I have been wondering how to reply to this question. I don't recall any hair 'products' in use back then. It was very short from 1967/68 of course. I'm seeing my hairdresser tomorrow and will see if he can recall.

speaking of shirts....thanks for the heads up on FP sale. Also a mate of mine who owns ENGLAND BELONGS changed the cut of his button downs. Longer cut and tighter sleeves....kinda on the lines of the Brutus cuts of shirts. The new cuts come in May i believe. Hes really excited that one of the patterns of gingham he acquired in his new line is the famous red,white,blue that sells exponentially quickly from Ben Sherm. Anyways, just pluggin for a friend who's actually looking for more punters.
Jason....Mr. Jun looks like he doesn't suffer from the slant eye chops curse. LUCKY MAN!!!
