i feel silly even asking this, as i am sure that you just simply take the clippers with no guard and shave the line in, but i am not too keen on messing it up and having to shave my head all the way down.

Clippers, no guard and a steady hand.
Would be very careful if you're doing it your self. And be prepared to fall out with yer bird when she messes it up.

Had a superb time in Margate as always, really good to meet both Colin and George and listen to there memorys and recollections from the 60's and 70's all good stuff, buttons and mr twist tag, pleasure as always, great tat George nice bit of permanent skinhead history there just out of interest can you remember who did it? regarding the stuff i mentioned to you about my parents i will pop up there and dig it out, i know its not skinhead related but might be of interest from a working class/tailoring perspective, alas the one thing ive not got is any footage of the old man bopping on disc a go go circa 62/63 from what i can gather the only footage left is of the later progs presented by Tony blackburn 67/68 i think, the search continues. I once asked the old man if he was a rocker he just laughed and replyed no son they came after me, nothing but a load of scruffy young troublemakers on motorbikes.

              Regards Basset

Hi Basset

Yes it was a nice little drink and a great way for me to spend an afternoon.  The old tattoo was done by Harry Potter (not the wizard) in late 69 / early 1970 when he had his tattoo parlour in Gravesend Kent.  .  He later moved on from there. See attached link

I am sure all our readers would be interested in anything you can post regarding your parents youth and would be appreciated as we all pinched some ideas from the generation before we had our own eras

 

Cheers George

that's what i figured. i definitely couldn't do it myself. i was, possibly still am, going to have my girl do it but i am very particular about my hair and there definitely would be some issues if she messed it up haha. life, am i right?

As we said Basset,it started the Trend ,for the Working Class to get Bespoke Suits.`62 was the year when my Father bought me a Made-To-Measure Suit(I was 12).It was Italian Style,with "Bum Freezer" Jacket,Slim Trousers with a Slit up the side-with a Button on top.We mentioned the other 2 Styles but when I got home,I remembered this Detail.The Boots I wore(Chelsea)had a Diamond Toe Shape to them-not Pointed or Chisel.This was the start-thanks to my Dad.smile.gif

I would not let my Girlfriend near my Hair!!!! Back in the 60s you never hand Clippers at home,so you borrowed your Dad`s "Cut-Throat"-if you wanted a DIY Job.smile.gif

Me and me brother saved up and bought some clippers (I was 12). Cut me hair 3 times that week!
We'd do each other's partings.
Never let me bird do it though - too risky! (same with ironing)

Was never sure if having a snappy dresser as a dad would give you summet to aspire to or summet to rebell against. Obviously the former with yersell.

I remember my older brother was of that period and had the Italian suits with the bum freezer jackets.  I can remember the Chelsea boots with Cuban heals and a pointish toe.  Also a pair with a large strap across the front.  They also had knitted ties with striaght cuts across the 2 ends.  White Br-nylon drip dry shirts were all around this early 60s time.  I was just a nipper

Thanks for the Margate Report, chaps.

I wanted to go back to the man in the King's Road with ticket pocket. Here is a man in transition.

His trousers belong to 1970 or earlier but the rest of his attire seems to have moved on – as has his hairstyle and his facial hair!

I recall too a reluctance to move on on the trouser front and, if I had pics of myself in early 1971 I am sure they would reveal a very similar scene (minus the fuzz).

He is also doing other things that would be entirely consistent with a man moving into the ‘smooth’ style. We see him with his cuffs turned back just once (de rigueur then) and of course he has just been to the Village Gate.

As ever the female of the species is shown to have moved on more quickly and I expect easily. Her transformation to the new 70s style is already accomplished. We have seen pics of Bunty’s brother and his girlfriend that reveal the same phenomenon.

Here is one where Bunty’s brother stays true to his skinhead suit (in 1971) where his girlfriend has shed any last trace of her skinhead style.

My Dad was an ex-Royal Navy Man.It through his constant "Get your Haircut",in `67(my Hair was Shoulder Length-not a Hippy though),that I had a Number 4.He went Ballalistic.I couldn`t win.

`70/ `71,my Sister had enough of Skinhead.She started going towards Hippy(exactly as the Mods did,in `67).Dave became my Brother-in-Law and it was through him I listened to Black Sabbath etc.My Wife -to-be had moved onto Wedges,Coats that looked like Tents etc.But then She was never Skinhead.
