1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Okay, closer:

    http://theswagger.co.uk/2011/08/02/paul-weller-for-pretty-green-biker-jacket/

    but shorter - it was for birds - and had two chest pockets with press stud fasteners.

    Anyway, I give up. :satisfied:

    I always liked Monkey Boots-where "its Girlie Boots" came from-probably the 2nd lot-was untrue.

    Oh I remember.

    The two girls I mentioned actually came looking to find me - their pal said I was 'cute'. (Should have gone tae Specsavers...)

    But, when they realised how young I was, they weren't interested. (Sad, might have been my first 'threesome'.) :D

    I ran into one of them when I was around 20 - she'd gone all hippy-chick and was living with some chancer in bed-sit land.

    I did like the jackets, though. :nodding:

    Seconded. I had a pair in early 69. I would not have been too pleased with someone calling them 'girlie' - in fact I never saw a girl in a pair.

    Here in the states, they became "girly" because early on you couldn't get docs in small sizes. So girls and young'ns had to wear monkeys.

    I like them too and wear them quite a bit these days. But people constantly say they were boots for girls and early skinheads never wore them. Of course i know that isn't the case.:nodding:

    I think people get confused Harry, they were more popular with girls round my way in the late 70's, a few lads wore them cant recall any big fuss being made of it, other than the odd piss take, bit like i had wearing jnr d'm's

    Monkey Boots acrually got round rhe "No Boots" Ban that was put into place-even though they were classed as Boots.I had a similar reaction to the Work Shoes I wore.:)

    Hi ace and eights

    Sorry it's took a long time to get back been my holiday since margate lol.
    Well what I can I say....it was great to meet browniecj aka Colin and chew he's ear off all night on the Friday! (Sorry about that lol)
    we had chat about what was going on before era of so called skinhead scene come around!
    And what people thought about the media making it nationwide in 1969!
    To me that made my weekend :D talking to someone who had been there and done it with all the knowledge and history speak about!!!!!! And that was just Friday I didn't realise the likes of aces and eights aka George was turning up.
    so I was surprised to see even more from the thread I already new basset and buttons! I've probably chewed there ears off once or twice before.
    But I must say it was a blinding weekend with great company.:D

    Its a shame lasttye couldnt make this year and any others on this thread.

    Oh and browniecj I will try and catch up with that taxi driver I no for some pictures from the period 67ish to 70 from around soho area from that era.

    All the best Levi (mr twist tag) :D
