Swazi as in from Swaziland?
Most of those japenese fellas seem to dress better that the majority of British blokes around at the moment.
Met Jun a few times, a really nice fella who is always well turned out. Owns a nice skelly too.
Yes he was wearing a West Ham scarf. Next to him is Tommy (with fist out) who was wearing a J-League (japan football league) scarf of his team. But yes English football is popular, but football in general is very popular there with many.
So... when's your next trip to Blighty, Jason?
dunno yet Paul...want to try and pick a time that something cool is happening like Margate (this year's Bigger Boss is right at end of Olympics so flights and hotel to UK are $$$$), but we're also limited to when the missus can take her vacation while her school is on break, but hopefully sooner than later!
@Jason: Isn't this you? Have a look
Aside from that, Does anyone have any experience in buying suits from these companies below:
I don't think these 2sites have been mention on here(if they have, I could not find the post). They look real nice but it helps to hear if they have any pros or cons.
Acefaceclothing (don't bother)
Adam of London (I'm pretty sure ADAM also runs 'Jump the Gun', another excellent mod/skin clothing store. Great suits)
'Getsmart' is becoming a modern-day celebrity (I studied a little bit of law in the early 90's, and I think Jason has a claim of 'infringement of interlectual property rights' as it's clearly him in the photo, and he has the same tats to prove it lol)
And to top it off, they;re totally different from the Sta Prest Trousers they're peddling!!!
Good to know. The prices for Ace Face seem a bit... "off the chart" lol. AoL tonik(tonic)/mohair suits look REAL nice(I see they sell a lot of nice stuff). I might just go with one of those suits
It seems like M-o-M's pics aren't the only ones circulating on the web .
wtf? haha yea that is me. and i'm wearing Jump the Gun staprest in that pic, not the ones being sold. dont care, face is blocked out so fine by me. should be flattered I suppose. What was funnier is someone came across a German newsstory on "fred perry worn by facist thugs" and the pic they used was of me wearing a FP buttondown, but again my face covered. Now that one was a WTF?!!?!?!? moment!!! hah But I suppose my strong teutonic features resonated with the writers of that story!!!!
Adam of london....good gear, imo the trousers a bit too wide for my taste. He isnt the same Adam from Jump the Gun. There is an "Adam" that is one half of Jump the Gun, but is a different Adam. And JtG sells Adam suits, and both brands crombies are identical as they are made in same factory. So can see the confusion, but Adam suits and JtG suits fit quite different. Adam has longer jacket and more nipped in waist with wider trousers. JtG suit is shorter length jacket, more slim boxy fit, and trousers taper down leg much more. Personally I prefer JtG as it fits me better than Adam, but Adam is quality gear as well.
Aceface...not a fan of their overall cut. tbh I dont think i've ever seen a photo of someone wearing an Aceface suit that I thought looked good. But I'm sure it can if the wearer has an eye for fit.
If I can find it I'll scan it. Also have some good viz strips from the 80s about skinheads that I intend on scanning
I guess I ought to be relieved.
I have to confess I was bloody confused about that pic of Jason, though. "What pic?" I thought to myself. It never occurred to me someone had identified Jason without his head.
Hi thought I'd make this my first post, the names Darryl I'm a 19 year old skinhead got into it via my uncle and several acquaintances. When I first got into it all I listened to was early oi! and punk then started listening to 2-tone which then later led me to my greatest love of all....Jamaican reggae & ska, I'm more of a traditional skinhead to me It's all about how you wear it and not what you wear so I swopped my flight jackets and 14i boots for crombies and loafers and taken up the style of the original 1960s skinheads. I rarely wear jeans and most often walk around in Sta-prest trousers and mohair tonic suits. Now I'll tell you a little bit about my love for music, my favorite artist has defiantly got to be The Pioneers along with prince buster,derrick Morgan,symarip,the versatiles,the melodians,kingstonians,etheopians,the crystallites too many to name anyhow have a big love for bootboy glam huge favourite of mine also.
welcome Darryl, sounds like you got yer head on straight
