    Four types. You missed out those who bought a little bit here, a little bit there, like me until I got my first wage packet.

    Okay, okay five... the ones who half-inched stuff too. :D

    I see we all studiously ignored this one :D

    I think this thread has said all it's going to say about Slade! I couldn't resist repeating, though, that I bumped into them at Goldsmiths in New Cross and (ahem) forcefully pointed out where they had mugged the style...

    And I promise that's the last time I'll mention it. :D

    I just cannot see how Slade could ever be considered a skinhead group. It's just beyond me.

    As if we would M-o-M?One of my Mates used to do a roaring "Trade".

    There seems to be a mis-conception that everybody shopped in the Squire Shop or the Ivy Shop.This was not the case.In the late 60s,Simons was getting very expensive and has been pointed out,did not do Mohair Suits.A lot of People were getting put off by this-I know because I used to talk others(regarding where they bought their Stuff).Plus,Skinheads in East London would not travel over to Richmond,maybe "Up- West".They had a lot of good Shops in their own backyard.As I have said in the past,the West London"Ivy Shop" Look crossed with the East End more "Spartan"Look,in `68.Hence full blown Skinhead.I remember seeing my first real Skinhead(Braces,Jungle Greens ,no.2-with shaved Parting etc),Brixton-mid `68.I was working there at the time.They did not go to Richmond either.

    Okay I went to Richmond once, Brewer Street on the few occasions I could afford it, and did the rest of my shopping around Lewisham, New Cross, and Deptford. And say what you like - M&S did some nice v-necks! :)

    Yep, late spring/early summer, 1969 up here.

    I was in love (awww...) with a couple of girls (older than me) with feathered hair, who wore them. :embar:

    Sort of 'wet-look', waist-length, red or blue, short collars and zip-fastening, probably nylon(!!!)... thanks for the memory. :satisfied:

    Think Julie Driscoll. :)

    I have a spare 10 minutes - which probably means I'll be on for an hour - so I'll search for an image. :D

    Okay: lose the waistband and cuffs... and the white zip and contrasting pockets, think short-waisted... and I reckon we're nearly there - no?

    I could see Little Queenie in one. :nodding:

    I have bought Surveyors donkey coats from here in the last few years and were pleased with them. You are probably looking for the pvc outside on the shoulders

    MA-1 make sure you get an Alpha. besides the overall quality being better than the "repros" they arent as puffy. i mean it's a bomber so it's always going to be kinda puffy, but the Alpha ones are less so than the cheaper knockoffs which will ALL make you look like the staypuff marshmallow man

    the fellow in front sitting on left has a very interesting jacket. at first i thought it was a cardigan, but it drapes and fits more like a sportjacket (and has a breast patch pocket) but it has no lapels. Looks completely unstructured like a sweater, but to my eyes looks like it is indeed a jacket.

    Ah, Bob's just reminded me what they are: I just hadn't attached that name to them! Makes sense now.

    Interesting point that Noddy Holder states in that clip that Skinheads started out in the midlands and not London. Must say its not the first time i have heard that. :confused:
