    Were they relatively 'dressy' like that or more of a sturdy work boot like these?

    Anyone remember that when you had a bit of a 'roll-about' with someone, you'd always rip the vent (always single in the NW) of their suit jacket up to the neck... now that really did ruin someone's day.:sly:

    And on the 'vent' issue, where I lived, it was a form of one-upmanship to have a bigger vent than anyone else. (I know, ideally you could combine a ruck with one-upmanship - but I'm sure you get my drift.) :)

    There was a time when the centre vent went to half-way up the back-you nearly took your Jacket off in two pieces!!!:)


    I have seen a Guy wear a brand new Mohair into a Club(The Limbo)and come out with it slashed to pieces.Some bstrd had him with a cut-throat.Needless to say,I never wore a Suit there!

    Hello Skinhead69, welcome to the thread!

    If someone had bothered to look properly, they would have seen that the clipping you posted is in much better condition than the one in the book and looks obviously like an actual newspaper clipping and not a scan of one! The text reproduced in the book is difficult to read and doesn't, as far as I can remember, say that the girl is his girlfriend or give her name: so thank-you for that - I, personally, found that very interesting!

    Read your 'resume’ and would love to hear any reminiscences you might have: 'original ' Skinheads are always welcome here!

    You remember our conversation the other day about the variety of vents and pleats 'up North'?

    I meant narrow and neat with a thinner sole.
    Not summet I'd class as dressy mesell.
    The black ones I posted were a more heavyweight option with thicker leather, slightly larger toe cap and triple leather soles.

    You just reminded me of a incident, in the 60s I was walking down Willesden Lane one night with a load of lads, Across the road was two suited skinheads that must of strayed into the manor, straight away the blokes i was with ran over and started knocking them about, one bloke who was with us got the lads vent of his suit and ripped it up to his neck, I got to say i was shocked, i thought you cnut give the bloke a hiding but to purposely rip his suit. even to this day it sticks in my mind. The bloke who did the ripping was one horrible scruffy cnut. I cant even remember why he was with us that night, because we all hated him. fcuk him.
