A few of my students are wearing shirts like that this year, with the large black & white, blue & white or green & white plaid. Although they're not wearing the braces, cuffed jeans and boots though....yet. smile.gif

I had a black & white one like that sometime around 1984.

This thread is brilliant, I'm home.

 

I got torn to shreds in the WAYW thread for posting this photo. Just recently let my hair grow out.

Heh..Welcome to StyleForvm, it can be rather like that. I occasionally post 'fits' see what kind of reaction it gets, see who bites. Here's a new word for your dictionary "iGent".

This thread is very much the exception and a real gem though. smile.gif

More-or-less the structure that's already under construction. smile.gif

Y'know, I was in a bookshop in Edinburgh yesterday (the place I would like us to launch once we do get the book done), and I saw a copy of 'Chav; the demonising of the Working Class'. I thought to myself - no bugger bothered to write a book in 1969 called 'Skinhead; the demonising of the Working Class'. No, they were too busy having a go.

A lot of this stuff has taken decades to find out (and this place has been a gold mine), and I feel quite honoured (for want of a better word) or special to be "in the know". But once the book is finished, it's out there for every Tom, Dick or This is England wannabe to see.
But thats the thing with tinterweb, everything is out there.
Grumpy Gramps.... Over and out!
So is anyone playing out on Saturday then?

It's called 'turning revolt into style', mate. biggrin.gif

It's a well-known NI-Protestant saying, and co-incidentally the title of an excellent book by journalist Geoffrey Beattie, published in 1992, about the NI Protestant community, and how accurate or inaccurate the public perception of it was. Bloody excellent bit of reportage, now a mater of social history - I have it on my bookshelf.

Sorry chap. Can't see anything skinhead related at all in that post.

If that pic got ripped to bits on the WAYW thread, why post it on a 'traditional skinhead' thread? When it's not remotely skinhead. Sorry had to ask.

Actually that pic got me thinking, I've seen that look somewhere before....

Robert Redford...

It's definately NOT skinhead.
