I agree.Your right on.Stalin use to empty whole towns and send the inhabitants all over the country to eliminate"community"I think your observing the same just done in a more subtle way.

I've gotta say those are the oldest looking 35 year olds I've ever saw.

The Glasgow Rangers - like us - have an expression: : 'We are the people...' - not bad - just of our time. nod[1].gif

I think you are being unfair to Manchester Women Ed.I have met some Crackers!!!

I remember when I went to Manchester first(many,years ago),I walked into a Caff near PiccadillyStation.There was a Woman in her 50s behind the Counter,and she said "Aye up Chuck"".I thought bloody hell they do speak like "Coronation Street".smile.gif

The Cast in "East Enders" certainly do not speak properly-more Essex.

I agree its important that there is book about the original skinheads by original skinheads before we are too old to remember what we will forget and the older we get the better we thought we were !!

 

As time progresses the originals will get lumped in with later revivals as history has a habit of concising groups.  The later skinheads had shaven hair, higher and tighter jeans, higher boots, puffed out bomber jackets, political views etc.  This was an exaggerated image of the originals.  This was similar to how original Teddy Boys felt when 'Showaddywaddy' arrived on Top of the Pops and the younger public assumed that the loud coloured drape suits was how the original Teddy Boys dressed.  The original Teddy Boys shunned the up starts

 

As an original I believe its very important for M-O-M and his team to record and publish his book and any help we can give I am sure we would oblige

Go with these guys http://unbound.co.uk/books/we-can-be-heroes  the Graham Smith book features amazing pics of the trendy west end club scene of the late 70s / early 80s ( quite a few of whom were skin / suedeheads in there younger days ) - basically you get enough people to pay upfront then the publishers print to order - beautiful looking books

I appreciate where you are coming from. But not all late 70s and 80s Skinheads were into the look you portrayed. Some, well quite a lot were into the traditional Skinhead style. And politics didn't do anything at all for me in those days.

My 2 cents on this display.The turn-ups are too thick(looks like 3 inches)The checks on the shirt too large.Don't like the color or pattern of the braces in contrast to the shirt.The crop looks a little too short.Botts are ok.Peace out and stuff.

Sorry - I don't recognise this look.

I think it is a brilliant example of Window Dressing - It is simple,eye-catching and memorable.It is not representing anything,it stops you to Look.That is what proper Display Work should do.
