    Yes, it was the same up here. That date makes sense for the pinafores. Photos are always appreciated, but I know how families can be!

    hey MOM, when i was working in Skegg'69-'71 we all wore levi jackets as did my skin mates back in leicester,they dont seem to get mentioned so much in the history but they were deff a big part of the skinhead look dont you agree?

    That's what I meant :happy:. Next time.


    I actually bought 1 of those years ago in a vintage shop but mine was a little lighter.. It's worn out though(it has a hole in the back left side and the edges show some tears) but I plan to see if I can give it some life back. Are you... selling that jacket? :D

    No I'm not, OHT, sorry :)

    Officially it belongs to my daughter, though she has never worn it.

    Lasttye is right, it was a Northern trademark. I occasionally saw it worn down South, but not often.

    I got one too, and recently bleeched it as the colour was too passed away to be worn plain - in my opinion. Also bought it second hand, didn't know it was not available new though.

    That was a trend in my area - Essex. One of my mates was old enough but had fairish hair and he always emphasised his sideboards (as we called them) with a marker pencil.

    Some good stuff on here lately . I have been keeping an eye on things although not contributing much. As Roy says some of it is a bit repetitive but that's inevitable in a thread this long.

    On the girls dresses I recall that style from later - around 1971.

    Interesting point about the looser fit of some clothing back in the 60s - we now equate 60s style with a very tight fit indeed.

    For those looking to possibly score some Brown boots (paging MoM), Mikkel Rude updated his 1969 line with some Solovair built brown. Its worth a look (although relatively expensive). I'm not sure if the pic is true to color as I havent seen these in real life, the link is HERE.[​IMG]

    I saw these too. I always thought MR would eventually release these in a brown. Nice.

    What was the common colour of the original astronaut boot? Was it a dark/rich brown similar to these?
    From what I've read, oxblood came later when Hawkins collaborated with Dr martens. But I'm not sure this rings true..

    To be fair to MR his prices aren't too bad, especially when you see how the BRITISH BOOT COMPANY has inflated it's prices.
    Their NPS oxblood brogue stable boots have just increased from £145 to £185. Quite a hike!!!

    (MoM - nice jacket. timeless. They always look great without the awful side/hip pockets they sometimes include.Keeps the shape better too)
