DMs - new store launch in Manchester.
And hardly a 'bone-dome' in sight.
The usual Tossers-Trendies,Models and those there for a Freebie.What stupid Colours they are coming out with now!!
That London store display shot is ben Sherman, arguably they have the right. But I really don't like this pseudo skinhead trend that's all the rage. I wonder how much of it is from fashion designers visiting this thread?
My main gripe is because because the main people wearing it are latte sipping fashionista metrosexuals who have no clue what a skin is. And would be disturbed by the connection. And no crops, usually I see it with bizarre hitler youth haircuts.
Look at Brutus' look book to see what I mean.
I'm all for revivals of subcultures, but not when it gets muddled and has all the teeth pulled out of it.
Even saw a Harry (with a damned hood!) on the street being worn by some young rich slob in ladies jeans, sloppy turnups, and shapless 700 dollar boots. Was tempted to jokingly stick out my brown skinned hand into a sieg heil and say "oi skinhead!" to see his reaction, but I was with family.
And then there's this:
And talking about erasing history... Anyone notice the huge cultural omission from the opening ceremony? No skins or rudies, or reggae. Plenty of Austin powers though.
I like that Yankee- "Latte sipping fashionista metrosexuals"
When they have Programmes about the 60s,on T.V.,we always get erased.According to the likes of the B.B.C.etc.,the Beatles etc.were the 60s(no they fcking were not,in London(about `63) they were being pushed aside by the Rythmn and Blues Scene-The Rolling Stones etc.)Even my Mum could not stand them .They always show the same Scenes.Hippies prancing about,Grosvenor Square,a bit of Carnaby Street(but mostly Kings Road).The reason being,they are middle class Liberalists-who want to invent their own History.We do not exist,because they do not want us to!!!!Go with the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics.
I will say one thing here-I wish Roger Daltrey and Pete Townsend would stop calling themselves "The Who".They were a complete Group-that is why I liked them.One half of that Group are dead,so leave it at that.Go under their own Names.
Sorry went off Track there!!!!!
