    There were Coats at the beginning of Skinhead.Sheepskins came into Fashion around `67`68(I bought my first one then),Crombies came in and took over the Scene.Sheepskins then made a reappearance around `69/`70.I bought another then.Can you remember the Long Haired Sheepskins around `70/`71,Roy?Saw one in one of the very early 70s Film-cannot remember the bloody Film though! :)

    This thread will drive me f*cking barmy! I haven't had any notifications of new posts since page 287!!!! GAH!

    Just a nod to this point about cords. They were big 'up North' in '67 '68 but a bit less so when I arrived in London in '68. having said that, yes they were worn. I seem to remember having a pair the same coliur as the ones above, and also a black pair.

    Now to try and catch up with everything else that has been posted...

    To be honest, Roy, my memory isn't what it once was either! :D

    That was more-or-less how it was. Even someone like me who had some strong personal political views didn't really talk about it much when I was with my mates. It just didn't seem relevant.

    Motion seconded.

    I'm probably too late for that, so motion supported anyway.

    I seem to remember a blue and green check shirt by one of the cheap brands (Brutus/Jaytex) which actually loked good... but on a skinhead girl. No offence to any bloke who wore one.

    I wonder if he remembers the skinhead at Goldsmiths College who gave the band a load of style tips? :D

    (Guess who!)

    Now I'm looking at this and seeing two guys in their shirt sleeves with braces over their shirts - no problem. I'm seeing one guy in a black sweater; you can't see his braces but I'll lay you evens they're under the sweater. I see one guy in a brown top of some description, but it's impossible to say whether his braces are over the top of it or not - it could be sharp shadow from the creases in his clothes. So where's anyone getting 'all 4' from?

    I recall if we had seen anyone with braces over a sweater, we would have yelled out 'Gumby Man!" at him.

    I'm going to revise what I just said. The guy with the black top could have them over his sweater, which is bloody unusual. Mind you, he could be winding the camera crew up. We did a lot of that! :D
