Jamaica had their gangsters or Rude Boys. Some young Jamaicans copied their look. Some of these emigrated to England. Some of these Immigrants went to clubs frequented by Mods. Some Mods went to clubs frequented by Jamaican immigrants. Some Mods and Jamaicans in said clubs borrowed clothing ideas/styles etc from each other. Some became friends, some became Skinheads. Younger brothers of the Mods and Jamaicans became Skinheads. They dressed alike as one would into good old fashioned working class youth movements. They never asked where we got our ideas and we never asked them. It just was. They never accused us of stealing their style and we never accused them. It just was. As said by myself and Roy before - social history? What's that? And anyway who cares, there's a fight going on round the block or we're going to be late for football/boxing/youth club/picking our Doris up/getting our hair cut........! Skinhead: A short lived 1960's predominately white working class youth movement, started at grass roots level in London (Sorry, I can't remember the street or house number).
