Hello gentleman , i would like to clear up a small issue re an interveiw i did for BRITISH STYLE GENIUS regarding the much talked about size of the check on your shirt ect. 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
