    I got my new DM MiE Vintage 1460's today and I'm very impressed. Even more impressed with the price and service, 84.99 UKP delivered! If anyone's interested, I got them from surfandskatewear.com in Kings Lynn, UK.

    That is a pretty good price for those on that site. I've seen other sites with the same pair for much more expensive. Good find.

    Nice photo Paul and a smart bloke must say, except the shoes, obviously not connected to the Skinhead scene, Budgie Jackets i had a couple sorry to admit, When you think the Skinheads in the 60s was so smart, then the same people, me included wore some of the worse clothing of all time, :D


    Just to add thats Interesting, the Budgie jacket made by Skyjump, The same makers that made the Harringtons we wore back in the 60s.

    My brother and some of his mates had Norwegians, but we were in Northampton at the time. Not sure if it was a northern shoe. I like them, have a pair myself. Wouldn't nessasarily be classed as skinhead shoes, more suedehead smoothie look id say.

    As for the suit, yes it looks a bit short in the jacket to me.

    DM site has them for 160 UKP! Not sure what the shipping to the US would be but a great price all the same.

    A superb shoe.
    And great in the way that they have never been reproduced to my knowledge.
    Only realy seen them at Northern Soul do's. Always liked them.
    The only ones (vintage of course) I've ever found on e-bay have never been in my size.

    I once found some DM ones on e-bay (age and era unknown) in a size larger than I take, but I was still going to try and win them.
    Until on closer inspection the seller had modified the shoes, he had added tassles to the shoes.!
    Such a shame. The red and black basket weave to the front was superb.


    Bunty - Best photo's I've seen in years. Faultless IMHO.

    The Suit would be a bit out-of-date in `71.By then the broader Lapels were coming in,on Suits.I know Roy has a Photo of mine taken late `70 where I am wearing the two button,wider Lapel style style Jacket.The Tailors told me this was the "Style".It was 3 Ply Tonik though.

    I had the Maroon Suede "Budgie" Jacket!

    Great, so the 69 skinhead style staprest was in a dress pant style made out of sturdy but soft cotton/poly material with center crease worn either hemmed or with 1/2" turn-ups.
    Was it straight leg or tapered?

    Would these be accurate representations of that style?:

    The Levi Staprest was fairly parallel,

    The last pic is of some of the Willesden Mob, outside The White Hart,

    Roy, forgot to ask you this earlier when you posted the pic.....re: corduroys you wore in 60s

    did you wear them hemmed short with boots, or did you hem them just at the ankle to wear with shoes? interesting bit about cords being a part of the style, since I dont think i've ever seen an original photo with cords being worn

    Jason we never really turned cords up simply because the inside of the Cord is plain, so the colour looked different. Just hemmed mate, Cords was a big thing for us, Samurai brought out 3 colours a couple of years ago to exact Levi specs, Beige, Stone Grey and Dark Blue. :)

    Here's some photo of chords Jason that I posted before. I didn't believe it when I heard that Skinheads wore them in the 60s ........ 'Like wot teachers wear? Give over..'
