I was a skinhead when it all started in 1969 i was 14 , plenty old enough a lot of the guys were a lot older and when your 14 and knocking about with 18 plus guys you tend to look up to your elders . and a certain crew at the time in east london , not all skinheads, but this certain firm had one guy leading them , and he wore a black and white check and the other guys wore stripe small check ect . This is how this one gang did it.  a bit like later on some guys took to following the clockwork orange garb , of white sta prest collerless shirts ect , only a small minority if i remember.  that is a pic of me on this site , in 1970 . And the shades are polaroids gold frame , and yes they are tattoos on my fore arms, i got tattooed around 13 . i found this site by chance but great to read all your posts all the best  A

Hello Alan

 

I bought this pair of Brogue boots from Blackmans just before Christmas last year..

Great little shop with plenty of quality shoes in there.Apparently,he goes to big shoe manufacturers like NPS in Northampton and buys large quantities of shoes from them when orders are low. Then sells them at really cheap prices.These boots cost me £75,they sell in BBC in Camden for about £150.

I liked your contributions to British Style Genius and The End-enjoyed them both.

Just a few weeks ago I actually bought me them Florsheim Kenmoor wingtip brogues in black. I haven't had the occasion to wear them out yet shog[1].gif ... but I'll see how well they hold in time.
gonna put them together with this suit jacket I recently bought on ebay:

I would love the AE wingtips but holy sh!t are they out of my price range.

Got them for a really good price-he buys a lot of stuff in bulk from shoe makers when their orders are low and then sells them at a really good price.I got these for £75 and a simalar pair in Brit Boot company in Camden goes for £150.

You can post pictures easily if you have the files digitally on your computer. just click on the icon resembling a painting when you are in the section to post on the forum. There you can choose to either upload it on styleforum (it will put them in your album here on styleforum on your profile) so you don't need to look for an external hosting webpage, or you can do that find an external photo host page like imageshack or photobucket.

I tried to upload my previous picture and it did it,but then flashed a message up about not being on here for long and then it dissapeared without me getting time to read the rest of it and it didn`t post it.Thats why i used photobucket,
