OK we all know that London is the centre of the universe worship.gif and that all fashion/trends/cults emerge from this great city (although the Casual scene may dispute this) but just because you Cockney geezers haven't seen a particular item of clothing/footwear/headwear it doesn't mean that it's necessarily a bad/Northern thing and to dismiss it out of hand surely?
Oh well, let's get me wellies on, start up me tractor and go out and dig up some mangel wurzels. Ooooh, aaaar.

Well to be fair a lot of things, most of them in fact, did start in London, and Londoners had access to a lot of fashions first. But a few things seemed to happen independently outside London - mainly the things that Roy says we wouldn't be seen dead in - and some things never seemed to catch on outside London (I remember the looks I got on my first trip back to Blackpool, when I was wearing a pair of jungle greens!).

I'm not disputing with you, Roy. I remember those jeans, by the way - I wouldn't have been seen dead in them either.

Anyone remember those 'Boot Boy ' era jeans they wore in the North called Skinners .. huge baggy fuckers with massive turnups worn half mast with DM's . Awful. Obviously shops selling the OG clobber were initially in London and much of the 'Look ' comes from the London Gentlemen / City banker which again was obtainable but very expensive .

I was either cold, or I was showing my mate how we used to wear them when I lived up North - two buttons done up. That two-hands-in-the-arse-pockets thing is very 'North' too. Maybe I was having a relapse. biggrin.gif
The past seems to become all hazy...

It is called old age,M-o-M !!!! biggrin.gif

I remember turning up early on a Saturday morning to catch the coach to some God forsaken tough Northern town wearing my Prince of Wales check strides, Royal Brogues and Crombie and our top boy telling me to go home and put my fighting gear on.

These lads I would suggest have got their 'fighting gear on'.

I saw a couple of lads hitch-hiking along the A207 at Shooter's Hill wearing them. "Not from these parts," I thought to myself. smile.gif
