I remember finding this pic in a book in the library when I was looking for summet for school.
Caption read "skinheads waiting for pub to open, 1970".
Pretty sure its about mid '69 though. The lad on the left crops up in a few old pictures from the time.

Yes I had bought from Samuel Windsor a couple of years back thinking I had got a real bargain with a pair of brogues and chelsea boots but the quality and fit wern't quite right - you have to try things out and you  get what you pay for

The sheepskins we had in 1969 were 3/4 legth to the knee.  the collar was not as wide as the picture above.  The leather 3 buttons were on a metal shaft with a nut fixing so that buttoning up was easy and not strained.  We bought them from Harry Fenton high street clothes shops for £35 each equal to around £700 today.  They were your pride and place of any of your clobber.  My mate shill has his stored in his shed after 43 years and will not part with it including all his original Ben shermans that are still laid out in a chest of drawers he took with him when he left his mums house way back

Is it something like this? from the tv series mccloud?

I saw it in a photo book of the 1970s. It was one of the first pics. Could easily be the first half of 1970.

welcome Coatsy and Jam74!

Jam74, we're from same era, mid-late 80s....I also grew up with oi/punk then eventually got into the original sounds later on. cant ever go wrong sticking with nicely tailored strides (staprest, wool trousers, whatever, as long as cut well and hemmed properly so not to look sloppy), nice brogues and a tucked in buttondown shirt. simple stuff that looks "skinhead" to someone in the know, but to any normals you'd just come off as a nicely attired gent.

I was assuming (London) lads of pub-age would have moved on from high leg commando boots and white button downs by the middle of '70.
Another couple of the same lad(s).

Technically the Mccloud jacket is that long, not sure where you guys are getting the idea that is not as the picture I posted is cut off half way, I think we can chalk up these jackets to a 70's trend no matter what kind of background you came from.

Think thats about it, will try and join in and contribute although my knowledge is limited.

Nice to have you on board Coatsy. Oh and congratulations on your recent marriage.

Is there any relevance of  a front main ZIP being on the opposite front side of a jacket (i.e. 'Dangly' bit on the wearers right hand side when doing up, for want of a more technical description)
I have vintage US ALPHA INDUSTIES bomber/flight, and field jackets like this. Is this a US style of zipper? Always wondered this.

Some classic American garments do seem to do up on the oposite side zipper wise. My Mrs bought me one of those American Chopper hoodies for Christmas a few years back. And it had the zipper on the opposite way around. I also had an Alpha Flight Jacket years ago that was like that.
