Somehow Loftus Road managed to squeeze in an incredible 33,572 people that day (current capacity around 18,500), yet despite goals by Terry Venables and Barry Bridges for the home side, Chelsea fluked a 4-2 win.

On the subject of the evolution around 1967 / 68 as brownie says the look had not crystalised but we were not scruffy. Far from it. That was arguably a smarter time than what came a bit later.

I know I've put this up before (it's all I have from the period). But it shows that then, in the early summer of 1967 when I was not yet 15, how important the haircut was already and the clothes - although not skinhead as such - included navy self herringbone suit MTM from Burton, M&S navy botany wool V, striped tie and probably Solatios. When not posing with my mum and dad I would have worn Wrangler cream colour needlecord jacket, Levis and Clarks dessies in that era. It is tempting to want to put up almost any pic from the period and try to make a connection with the thread. I do understand as 'genuine' images are like hen's teef.

Blimey, I remember the Wrangler cord jackets, had a 'chocolate brown' one...but they were never, ever, to be worn with matching cord pants... wayyyyy too man at C&A!!!

Had a mate that wore the tan Levi cord jacket and jeans... phenomenal piss-take. (He became a (late) hippy, complete with neckerchief and really bad, bell-bottomed wow.gif Levi's.)

The guy in the front - braces over jumper (as there was discussion about this some time ago). And the braces are clipped in a weird way - almost above the jeans button.

I had a pair of brown plain apron fronted shoes and, later in 1970 a black pair from a shop in East Ham with a woven vamp.

Perhaps more mod. But see my link in post #90 to retrowow and the ref to 'light' Solatios.

Definitely verging on the 'homo-erotic', IMHO. (Or perhaps it's me, discovering a side I never knew I had?) eek.gif

I googled 'gay skinhead' - I know, how am I to explain that to the missus??? - and the one of the pics turned up here:
http://www.revleft.com/vb/skinheads-t99933/index.html?p=2353158

So, pretty inconclusive?

Re Testicles.

Loads of great partings here. The two fellas behind the lad with the leather, can anyone make out the shoes? Tall one with roll neck and lad to his right? Also braces over a roll neck is that?
post #6840 of 18817


The Packets on them lads has been righfully respected ever since the picture first surfaced in the 90's.

 

I alwasy said, it seemed somehow homoerotic, appears I was right.

 

Nice Clobber though, (even down to the watch ;)) few bobs worth in todays money.
