• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Na, there not dms boots, different sole, different style heel stitching. i have a pair of dms, they usually had the size number then the width number. dms boots were kind of shitty thin cardboard leather.

blind man be glad to see it! Come on there’s not much difference really is there? The boot you have there that isn’t a dms looks almost identical to the leather soled ammo boot.
pair of dms I had. The leather was great. Although they were an earlier version.

Yep, agree on the Greenbrier one. It's the best put-together and warmest one of the lot as well.

The 6ts pic is interesting as it is taken during the lights period i.e only two mirrors but l dont think that it is a pic of Glenn in the 6ts. .

Some early attempts at protection from Coronavirus.

Not sure if they would work, but looks better than some recent attempts l've seen on the news i.e a bucket on the head and a Tesco bag for life with holes in it.😷🤧😩

Love this pic from the mid 90's, lads who DJ'd on Mod rallies that I used to attend, it looks natural and shows that it wasn't just the originals that had the look to a T. This was in the period just before it got too Austin Powers ish, where the rallies became more of a 60's thing rather than pure mod, with sussed skins and suedes in the mix.

L to R, "Mad" Mick Taylor, Lee Burns from the Midlands/Brum, "Catford" Chris Dale, yes you've guessed it from Catford. As far as I know they are still active on parts of the scene and still spinning the vinyl, but haven't seen any of them for years.

Nice one Yorkie , it sounds like every Mod crew had a "Mad" Mick , although to be fair , the Mad Mick you knew was certainly a better dresser than the one l knew . .
