You are continuing to prove you have no idea what you are talking about, again communism and socialism are not interchangeable words and they are not the same thing, Please for your own good look up what these two things are for fucks sake, also, just because states like the soviet union called themselves socialist or communist does not mean they are.

Skinheads were judged by the group by wider society that they were a bunch of racist thugs. Just like you are saying all police are corrupt. it is just fundamentally wrong and untrue. You cannot judge an whole group, not all communists or socialists worship Stalin and Mao and many times disagree among themselves like any group.

Anyone who knows me knows that i am not politically correct, i am not interested in policing language. It was an observation, and in my view it came across as orwellian.

I'm thankful we don't have armed militias in the UK and that kids don't get there brains blown out in schools on a weekly basis, also that i don't have to pay if there is a fire.
I am going to let you have the last word here and end it as you continue to be very intellectually dishonest, so we'll end up going around in circles. I want to be clear I have no I'll feelings towards you, just your belief system. I hope that if I do ever make it over there or you here, we can be friends and laugh about our differences and discuss clothing and music over some green juice, or a probably a beer in your case.

Sadly, we've become familiar with it through the interwebs. Private property, but no state - a rich man's utopia. Private militias to keep the undesirables off one's precious lawn, however. Dream on.
I'm all for sharing space and I operate under the non aggression principal balanced with the principal of self defense. We just got to reach the tipping point first.
I recommend studying the Essene tribe of Israel to see what is possible with the right mindset.

I say MA-1. M-51 fishtail shell to use on rainy days

I was just speaking my mind, not being dishonest in any way, I just come from a very different world than you do. America is a completely foreign kind of society to what i live in. Lets leave it at that

My trusty powder blue vintage deadstock Sears & Roebuck OCBD. Best fitting, well made and most comfortable. It was also dirt cheap and still in it's original packaging.

Used to love Sears & Roebuck ocbd’s and jeans. Wore those as a young skinhead along with the usual gear.

What happened to this thread, by the way? Where's the fashion tips for winter? Duffel coats or peacoats - and if peacoats, what brand?

Not a duffel, nor a peacoat, but these Samsoe & Samsoe 'Bryn Coats' looked flattering and a good length.

I tried on an XXL the other week, but it was still too tight across the chest & shoulders.😞

Before I could afford or knew where to get a Ben Sherman and before I could fit into Levi's I would go to Sears and get the Covington button-downs and Canyon River Blues jeans.
I remember on one occasion the Covington shirt actually fooled an older skinhead friend of mine who said nice Ben Sherman. I remember how good I felt I didn't correct him. Lol

Now I wish I remembered the names/models of the Sears stuff I wore— it was always about the look but I was a bit naive about the finer elements. It was the Wild West out there; any older skins just ignored us so we were on our own.

Tell me about it. When I finally did get some nice Ben Sherman's, the same said skinhead conned me out of the best one I had by trading me a Fred Perry referee Polo for it. I was so enamored by the idea of owning a Fred Perry and that little Laurel wreath on my chest that I for some reason thought it was a good trade. It didn't even fit it was too big.
