Boot Boys were just part of the evolution of Skinhead, some had short hair others grew their hair long(er). As others on here have stated, different parts of the UK had their own styles. Where I was in the south east, by 1972 we were wearing (at various times) Levi jackets, PoW or Olive Green Harringtons, Stacked heel shoes (the ones with the cream coloured soles) and dark green Sta-Prest. DM's were worn nearly all the time, especially for football and fighting. We also started to wear trousers that had pleats down the side of each leg, slightly flared and sometimes they had coloured stitching down both sides of the pleats - mine had orange stitching! I had a mate who was a Man United fan who went to some of their away games (London mainly). He put tartan on his Levi jacket same as a lot of Man U supporters did at that time and within days everyone copied him even though we were nearly all West Ham or Chelsea! Oh and Winter '72 Parka's were in big time! In early '73, some of us started calling ourselves Mods again.
