    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.

    Well it was definately worth the 30 quid i paid for it, in great condition and fits perfectly, probs not an original colour but it reminds of the one on the right.

    Looks good, I prefer the low contrast look when the fleece is dyed - I don't think there is anything particularly 'inauthentic' about that.

    Yeah the dark fleece and slim fit take it away from the teddy bear coat look.

    Bin the shades - they look massive on your face and have the effect of making your head look small.

    I'm with Duke on the shades. I quite like the dark sheepskin - I have one myself. The boots leave me cold.

    I echo the sentiments expressed above: your face might be better suited for a different type of shades. Try it out, mate.

    By the way, I found these photos which apparently depict a Bristol skinhead in the early 70s. What's striking is that he wears a number one or two crop in combination with 'loon pants', or whatever they were called.

    ^ haha, not loons - white skinners I think. He has gone part of the way to bootboy. Further than that, isn't that a tartan-trimmed shirt?

    Bizarre, isn't it? He skipped the suedehead and smoothie stages. When everybody was growing their hair out, he was like, "no thanks, I'm good with what I've got". Skinners, however? "Yes please, I'll have a pair of those".

    To be fair to him, these would be more on the trailing edge of that look.

    Cheers, shame its not really the weather for it, its a long wait till winter haha.

    I recently bought another pair of brutus nevapress, a waist 36 this time instead of a 34(im only a 32 waist) and they are far more comfortable now, so i would recommend sizing up 2 sizes instead of one( it might vary from person to person of course) they also seem to be less slimfit, but that just might be my imagination.

    There is better brands out there of course like brooks brothers and jump the gun, but these have the convenience of being able to order them with a short leg.
