    Regarding Studio D Artisan, been trying to get a pair for a while now, they look cool, like the Pigs on the back, The whole Japanese Denim thing i'am into, I have a few pairs of Levi Vintage, but they still not like the original 60s stuff, mind you i have a nice pair i bought in Miami Nine years ago, cost me $200 even then.:)

    By the way, I happened to pass an 'old geezer' outfitter/kiltmaker in Dundee today and saw they had a sale on. Burgundy silk polka-dot scarf for £26. "I'm having that!" I said. And I did.

    Sorry to get away from the fascinating denim debate for a minute, but did you say 'hooped cricket caps' MoM?!

    I've heard about one mob wearing fezzes would you believe, but hooped cricket caps? :D That's brilliant!

    Anyone know the best place to get Levi 1947 or 1955s. Looked at the American Classics that Roy mentioned but no prices. I know they are a bit of a wedge, don't mind paying but want to know wheres best.

    Thanks.

    Harry -

    Not sure where's best. I buy LVC from whoever and wherever sells it the cheapest and take a gamble. I did see these 1947's recently. No real bargains tho.

    (the asos site is UK but cause styleforum is US the currency is automatically changed to dollars)

    The catch is they have the 'Worn' look, which probably isn't suitable, but may be worth a look.

    I wear the 67's but have always fancied trying the 47's.

    No hem, folded to inside inside. Perhaps invisible hem but no apparent stitching. I see a lot in old photographs with that style, mostly from the 80's.

    I just got back from Tokyo a three weeks ago and I got a bunch stuff including of Studio D Artisan, got a heavy melton wool donkey jacket with a round "club" collar.
    Interesting enough their prices are much more affordable than other brands like United Arrows and Edifice, which are amazing but pricey.

    just want to say, WOW and THANKS. This thread is giving spirit of '69 a run for its money as a skinhead bible.

    question for M.O.M: you mention that you came from a middle class background (and I understand that class in the UK at the time was much more divided and static than here in the US.) Did that create any conflict or problems with skins from strictly a working class background?

    Speaking only from what I personally know of NY and the US in the 1990s, docs exploded in popularity, and every scene from punks to lesbians to metal heads to grunge kids were wearing them, and treating them like crap. We took extra care of our boots as a way to differentiate ourselves from everyone else who was wearing them — especially the punks.
