1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Yes, I have certainly seen those ones before which have a different sole to the ones I quoted but I think they are harder to get now. .

    I prefer the rounded toe of the 3 eye chukka boot. Can't find them on the DM UK site. Typical.

    For me the most interesting thing is the presenter. He is wearing a 3 button narrow lapel suit - what we would now class as skinhead or mod - showing that skinhead suits were only about flaps and vents, fewer details than you might think.

    Take away point: skinhead was more embedded in the mainstream than we might think.

    That's what I thought when watching Bronco Bullfrog for the first time. Today, they advertise the DVD as documenting the 'rise of the suedehead subculture', but it was shot at least a year too early for that, and the hair doesn't really look like grown out crops either. They're just regular working class kids wearing what was fashionable at the time, i.e. DMs, braces, Sta Prest, lower case crombies, Harringtons...

    The only thing that seemed to distinguish 'skinheads' was the hair.

    Forthcoming exhibition
    Moses, Mods and Mr Fish: The Menswear Revolution

    31 March - 19 June 2016

    This ambitious new exhibition tells the story of men’s fashion and the emergence of the modern male wardrobe – taking the visitor on a journey from the tailoring workshops of the mid-19th century to the boutique revolution and mod culture of the Swinging ‘60s.
    Moses, Mods and Mr Fish explores the contribution of Jews to the design, manufacture and retail of ready-to-wear men’s clothing. For over 100 years British menswear set trends which led the world – and many of the most influential figures of that period were Jews, from Montague Burton and Moses Moss to Cecil Gee and Michael Fish.

    I don't remember it was.

    I prefer to ignore all the things you posted that have already been posted. Too numerous too enumerate here. [​IMG]

    Interesting film. Proves my point that we spent a lot of time running around in low cut boots.

    Bob, DM tend to size rather small these days, so maybe it will be OK. Otherwise, if they are too big, you can put an insole. (I know DM makes some, but i never tried them). Another thing you can do is to drop in a shop and try a pair in the size, so you'll know. I think they have the same last than the DMs 1461 shoes, that are quite easy to find.

    Thanks for the advice. I might just go and try the 1461 shoes for size.

    "... shouting, clapping, and generally making their presence felt." Quelle horreur! :D

    I have to laugh when I hear the term 'suedehead' anyway. Round where I used to hang out, 'suedehead' was a short-lived, non-serious term for a very brief stage between the short college-boy haircut and shoulder-length hair. It was never a 'subculture', it wasn't around long enough.

    I think that Bronco Bullfrog's promoters have just happened to pluck the word out of the air because it was 'current' somewhere around the time of the film's original release (well about 6-9 months afterwards, actually) and because none of the actors have short hair. Utterly meaningless 'meeja' nonsense.

    Interesting to see the snap at the wedding, with the girls with their skirts up to their armpits.
