    Hello all, recently discovered this thread.

    I was born in 1968 so too young to ever be an original but was influenced by family and music to 'the look' from an early age and have returned to suedehead in recent years.

    Can I ask a quick question - I know you've talked about cords on here in the past but did the originals wear anything other than Levis cords or were Wrangler/Lee commonly worn around that time?

    Cheers again for a great read.

    Paul

    I only remember wearing Levi Cords, London Skinheads also liked Lee, but cant remember Lee Cords, I never wore Wranglers as a Skinhead.

    Cheers Roy.

    Another quick question, were macs/raincoats ever worn much (or at all) by any of the originals around London in 68/69?

    Wranglers, Lee Rider, and Lee Cooper were certainly worn in NW England. I seldom saw anything but Levis after moving to London in 68.

    Lee Coopers were British, Roy.

    What were those bloody awful, mid 70s jeans called, very lightweight denim, sky blue in colour with embroidery on the back pockets? Now, I had those! :D ('let down' a million times with white lines around the bottom of the leg too, cool eh?)

    Hi all, thought I'd better sign up after reading this belter of a thread.
    I got into skin/suedehead back in 1970 as a young teenager in Yorkshire, local mob were the Shipley skins that followed Leeds United.
    Am liking the idea of a meet up in York, will be up for that.
