This thread is always fascinating reading, the details, the minutae, the anecdotes, etc. 

Anyroad, seeing about 100 pages or so back, people were talking about jungle greens, how expensive/dear they are, and hard to source, here's an online surplus shop that carries them.  Got a pair and sewed in a 1" turnup, they're great work pants and I wear them pretty much every day on the job.  Just ordered 2 more pair. 

  I suppose this link is more for us Septics than yous Britons, as I don't know if they ship overseas, but here's the link anyways:

OK, carry on with the best skinhead "forum" on the net.  As an aside, and for what it's worth, I'm not digging that Levi leather trucker, just screams "fetishist" to me, sorry!

K guys,

So, here's the deal. We need to rename this thread A big corporation that starts with a "G" and has two "o"s, is really putting the heat up on websites for some reason. I'd love to stand on principle, but unfortunately, that would be like resisting an actual, not movie, alien invasion. Our choices are:
1) Change the name of the thread. Unfortunately, we can't teach stupid. But they are huge, and we are tiny.
2) Move the thread to dumb threads, which would be private, but would make the thread impossible to spider, etc... It would also make the thread unfindable by new users.

I thiink that we need to just change the title. I need some suggestions, and for you guys to help me out. It's clearly not the best situation, and I have no idea why they are getting so nuts, but things are what they are.

Cheers,

Fok.

What are they objecting to in particular? Difficult to think of an alternative perhaps 'Spirit of 69' ? Original poster and a book reference too.

Wow, Big Brother!!!!

 

Not that I'm any sort of main "face" or have any clout on this forum but what about,

 

"Traditional Skins" as opposed to "Traditional Skinheads"?

 

or

 

"Beers, Bovver, and Birds"

 

 

Ridiculous really, the fact that *Gargle* put the hammer down without reading the meat of the thread, and pass judgement on people whom they don't like due to the perceived notion that we pass judgment on people we don't like!

There were a couple of shops on Camden High Street, on the right hand side as you walk from the tube station to the market, selling Levi style leather jackets a few weeks ago. Starting price in one shop was £100. Was going to try one on, but the high pressure salesman put my back up straight away so I may a swift exit.

Well as the creator of the thread (I used the username Spirit of 69 back then) I think a name change would be better than making the thread private.

 

I like the Beer, Bovver & Birds suggestion or something like Boots & Braces

 

Or how about something like Peanuts, Suedeheads, Rudeboys & Smoothies?  ;)  ;)

 

Or how about as Kingstonian suggested Spirit of 69?

On black leather bomber jackets, I remember getting my first one in 76, and nearly everyone I knew had one then, very popluar with jeans & boots.
