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.

    Hi,

    I got some Baracuta Harrington jackets, they are unbeatable in my opinion, but I'm searching for an alternative for the new season on the terraces.

    I don't like the warrior ones, because I want raglan sleeves (looks better, fits better). Now I found those ones at Jump The Gun (a nice shop in Brighton):

    http://www.jumpthegun.co.uk/shop/Product/Index/79

    Ragglan sleeves and made in UK.

    Does someone here got one of these and could tell me more about fitting and quality? Would be nice!

    have one in navy. it's a quality jacket. fit is pretty much like most harringtons, imo run about a size larger. normally a 38, i got my JtG in a 36 and fits perfect. I wear same in Baracuta, so I would get whatever Baracuta size you wear.

    Okay, while we're on recommendations, anyone used this place:
    http://www.brooktaverner.co.uk/

    I bought a suit from them last month - a cracker for work - and now on their mailing list.

    Saw some shirts that looked good for the price - BD, rear collar button, nice roll to the collar, rear pleat, 100% good quality cotton - and a decent weight... so whaddya think?

    Don't know how this works.Wanted to say Tanx (m.bolan) for your speak.I'm an American who discovered Punk rock in 77 (I was 11) very soon learned about the Mod revival and then Two-Tone revival (78-79) In 81 "Indie Rock" began and I became a pro musician in an early to mid 80's indie rock band,Indie rock came from Punk and Mod and 2tone as well as many other threads.As i am now middle aged I've begun to remember where I came from(punk,mod,2tone) My nostalgia has brought me to the original mods and skinheads. I've been reading for a couple of weeks and had to say Tanx and keep it up.Love the older folks from the original days tellin'us younger ones how it was.BIG UP.

    I agree.i grew up in Boston,which had a good "Hardcore-Straight Edge" scene.The hardcore bands were better than the Oi (which influenced the american hardcore scene)I think the Oi bands were too "amatuerish".That false idea that punks couldn't(or shouldn't) play well, which was not true of the first wave of punk.

    For those that like a few choons when browsing, might I suggest:
    http://www.accuradio.com/

    Obviously, i favour Traditional Reggae - currently listening to The Skatalites with 'Lucky Seven' - but there's something for everyone on the menu.

    This is very cool to see.Tanx for posting this.The dynamic of inner city youth is always the same.Don't matter if it's gangs in the Five Points slum of New York City mid 19 century or zoot suited chicanos in LA in the 1940's.Big Up to Alex for this.

    Same thing has happened in New York City.It's become too expensive for working class people to live there anymore.

    The 'scutlers' thing has been highlighted her before, mate. (Not a problem, though.)

    I have a friend who has - should anyone be interested - a business in the old 'Ragged School' there, in Ancoats.

    If any of our 'colonial cousins' (joke boys and girls) want to visit, I can sort that out for you.

    The boss, an Indian Sikh, is Jaz, a really good mate, very trendy, very mod (bless)and is a good guy... see here, eh?

    Like our London chums in the old East End - and, dare I say it: where the Skinhead movement had it's roots (spit :embar:), the area was all immigrants... that's life and we move on.
