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!
We wanted to look smart and, dare I say it, business-like... coloured laces would have looked to incongruous and out-of-step to our lot.
Heard the old amonia tales - never witnessed anything of the sort, though.
