Mod to Suedehead - Page 630

post #9436 of 19331
Yes M-o-M I am willing to take in Account that maybe you did not see Denim Jackets.I will not be told that they did not exist,that Skinheads did not wear them.I had one and I saw others wearing them-regardless whether they were in East London,West London or South London,I cannot speak about North London because I never had the inclination to go there or to work there-until later.Maybe it was not to everybodys` taste but they were a good substitute to a Harrington(do not forget that I had stopped wearing mine because they were too common).Why would you have Suede,Leather,Cord etc., Jackets bought out in London-in the Levi Style-if they were not popular?And they were snapped up damn quick-or am I imagining this as well!!!!

End of.

Surely the Big E was irrelevant back then

All Levis had the Big E label, Think the Big E was dropped around 81...When Levis got ride of their old looms..for wider ones, The Japanese bought the old looms,

Did not know if it was "Big E" or 501s etc., back in the 60s.Just knew them as "Shrink To Wear" and in my Case Levis.

I'am not in the photo, The two lads back either side was good mates of mine, Pat and Gerry RIP, the lad in the middle i think is Noel.
The lad front middle is Eddie, cant remember the names of the two others.
Gerry was a well know face for years at Chelsea, sadly stabbed to death three years ago aged 56..sticking up for someone in a Kilburn Pub. Gerry was a small lad with a lot of balls, he never showed any fear when it came to a fight, a lad you could always rely on.

I have wrote a lot on this thread about the Kilburn Mob yankmod.smile.gif

Two completely different subjects. (1) Was there a craze for putting two tone laces, perhaps red/black or yellow/black in your brogues around the same time that Blakeys and segs were being worn? (2) Anyone ever seen or hear of washing up liquid bottles, or Jif lemon containers, filled with ammonia being used by skins at the match? Seem to remember press claims that this was a late 60’s/early 70’s skinhead weapon at football. Sounds horrific, even worse than dart throwing!

Nice to see that famous photo in colour.



No info for this one unfortunately.

Sorry M-o-M, it's impossible to find who owns the copyright for these photos, they've been nicked so many times it's impossible to find out where they originally came from. (I've found some of yours (and mine) on quite a few sites too)


Now then.......


What about Army greatcoats? biggrin.gif

Never heard of two tone laces, sounds awful, Royals cost a weeks wages back then,biggrin.gif

Regarding Ammonia, We would hear rumours that some nutters was carrying them, But i never saw anyone with them ..or heard them being used,
