    hey im guy in pic .. taken around sixty nine at my best mates kitchen door - thats made-to-measure made under my explicit instructions - 3 piece suit in metallic navy cost me a fortune - 'off the peg' the very idea and within my group was considered mwah! 'needs a press?' - I 'wore' that suit - cheeky git. those brogues came from class little shoe shop in Soho and its an original short sleeved Ben Sherman - used to buy one a week at that time. More info on my original post with these pics. Notice shaved parting which I had never seen anyone do before ... lot of fun - cheers

    Ha ha. Would love to see a photo of some 'Mall skins' Jason.

    I see your point tho, if all the 'Chav's' in Britain starting wearing sta-prest and button down's. It really would be the death of 'Skinhead'

    In Britain our mall's/shopping centres, fast food restaurants, arcades, parks etc etc. Are infested with this 'Chav' vermin : -

    Welcome, looks like you have a great start to your blog and I'm a big fan of your husband's Boot Power comps. Keep up the good work.

    Roy, You have said before that you and other originals wore the OG 107 jungle green trousers. Did any of you wear the OG 507? I see there's quite a few selling on ebay right now(American Ebay- both OG 107 & 507). I've notice only 2 differences: the OG 107 are button fly and cotton sateen while the OG 507 are zip fly and 50%cotton/50%polyester. I've been told that the OG 507 feel stiffer or not as soft as the OG 107(??).
