1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Happy New Year everyone, I was at a New Year's party yesterday and guess who's mug showed up on the Beamer... M-o-M/Paul!

    @Gramps
    Welcome to the thread!

    @Bunty
    Thanks for the clarification about the leather bombers, epaulets removed hehe. There something alluring to those Leather bombers, maybe it's the fact that you had to go down somewhere different just to get them. But they was mainly a '68 thing?

    Suede and leather Levi Trucker Jacket sure are expensive, saw a suede one new for the same price as getting a new suit:

    Look at those prices, no wonder you would't take 'em off:

    The owner had it down to '70/ '71, quite late but it's from up north.

    I have a suede one. But alas its not a Levi one. Same details and looks like a Levi. Still nice though and fits me perfect. But i would like Levi one, and yes a leather one would be lovely. But im pretty sure Levi don't make the Leather ones anymore and even second hand ones i have seen over the past few years have fetched a good few hundred pounds. Will sold one on ebay a few weeks ago, it was in quite poor condition to be honest but it still fetched a couple of hundred.

    I used to have a Green Suede Levi's Trucker (with the leather collar like George Best), sold it to Mate when I ....... lets say "Grew Out" of it. In all honesty, I didnt find it an overly comfortable Jacket, but saying that neither are size 6 Shoes when youre an 8 [​IMG].

    Welcome Graham. Happy New Year to all!

    Just got round to watching / listening to What to Do. That Gingham checked Brutus is probably the one I had - one of only two non Ben Sherman or American BDs I bought.

    Interesting about the perception of West London skinheads being that bit smarter, advanced. That was our perception also.

    I agree entirely about the idea of a 'uniform' and with the fact that it was your duty almost to keep pushing the envelope while keeping to the basic code. In our case this might mean having more of something - say Ivy Shop shirts or a particular colour of, say, shoe that was hard to find.

    Question: How was traditional skinhead fashion different from ska/rude boy fashion during the late 1960s and 70s?
