Little Queenie I have admitted on here before i did not see what Northern skinheads wore on a Saturday night., But let me tell you this.. we London Skinheads went to football Daytime smart, We wore our best casual cloths to show off. The Northern Skinheads girls would seek us out, They would hunt around town to see where we was drinking before the game
To be honest to me some of the Skinhead style looks dated these days, even when i see young skinheads wearing the cloths, I mostly mean the wearing of check shirts, braces jeans and boots, but then seeing skinheads in a suit is a timeless classic.
I believe my beginnings in fashion, have stayed with me for the last 44 years.
I'd never - even now - go out without polishing my shoes (where applicable ), pressed trousers, clean shirt, no creased back on the suit jacket or rumpled creased jumpers, etc... I'd be embarrassed.
Obviously with linen jackets etc, you'd have to stop breathing to avoid creasing, but I'm sure you get my drift.
I'm hardly 'fashionable' but, I am always clean, tidy and, in most instances, could turn up anywhere - and not be deemed inappropriately dressed.
Some may even say, 'boring'.
But I'm happy - just the 'weight' issue to sort out, now.
I think that kind of grooming is something you don't really see amongst young people now (at least done as a matter of course, I mean).
Damn, what a coincidence!
I was going to post stills of this video and ask if any of you had noticed the kids.
