    If I can remember properly Boots were banned from Schools,Kids were sent home"to come back when your hair had grown".These facts actually made the Nationals-because of the growing Aggro from Skinheads.I cannot talk about Kilburn I do not know it-but where I was it was the above.

    We was wearing boots all the time at school, but they would not allow us to wear Cherry Reds, But Black no probs, also with me I left School officially in July 69, So maybe later they band them?

    Originals.

    They appear to be. This is a well-known photo and although of 'originals' it has appeared in revival-oriented books etc.

    Read through his whole thread. Very interesting! I appreciate you guys being so candid. This may be a dumb question but what would a skinhead where if it was ever super hot? Boots and long sleeves would be pretty uncomfortable.

    Okay then we'd wear short sleeves. Having said that, when is it ever 'super hot' in Britain?

    Get your drift and support that, Paul. As for any striking images representing the scene, or any youth culture for that matter, can I just say that a 19 year old looks so much more convincing than a 16 year old. No disrespect to anyone of course (and especially not within the context of this very thread). As for style in general I'd say a true 'geezer' (as in, say, just over 25) would look even more convincing, but that aside. Could also just be me at that, as for the latter [​IMG]

    I like the style of that Kilburn lot from that French paper clipping.

    Now they had it right [​IMG]

    As regards kitting out for a footie match yes. As for looking sharp, well...

    would that not be as equally important?

    Indeed, but that's not what we are being shown on that photo.

    Bear in mind that they were kids and might not yet have been able to buy the really sharp clothes.

    The Kilburn Mob would be dressed the same as many, who would stand on the Terraces,in any of the London Grounds(North,South,East or West) during the late 60s.As Roy , M-o-M ,myself or any other Supporters at the time,you could tell the "Out-of-Towners".
