Great pics, mate... thanks.
(Must still be thousands of images 'out there'...)
Ininiganes gi'e me the dry boak...
Blimey, I remember the Wrangler cord jackets, had a 'chocolate brown' one...but they were never, ever, to be worn with matching cord pants... wayyyyy too man at C&A!!!
Had a mate that wore the tan Levi cord jacket and jeans... phenomenal piss-take. (He became a (late) hippy, complete with neckerchief and really bad, bell-bottomed Levi's.)
!!!!!! oh my lordy
thanks for posting those spiller, had not seen that 2nd image. tho knowing what we know now with all the splinter groups of skinheads, that photo looks like it's embracing "skinhead brotherhood" a bit too closely
here´s a pic of a young steve tannett from 1970...
some maybe remember him as the guitarplayer of the uk punk band MENACE, that influenced a lot of uk oi! bands.... he´s a real nice guy and i just told him to check this thread...
hopefully he find some time to share his views about the past with us too...
steve in 1970
steve in 1977
steve in 2012 (with menace drummer noel and me)
The guy in the front - braces over jumper (as there was discussion about this some time ago). And the braces are clipped in a weird way - almost above the jeans button.
I had some a little earlier - from a shop called Mintz and Davis (in Romford and Chelmsford). The earlier ones were very smooth and with high quality leather - possibly made in Kettering.. Finding pics is almost impossible but this thread on FNB contains one from 1970 that seems to reveal them.

I had a pair of brown plain apron fronted shoes and, later in 1970 a black pair from a shop in East Ham with a woven vamp.
Perhaps more mod. But see my link in post #90 to retrowow and the ref to 'light' Solatios.
Original caption read -'Blimey, they look like hard nuts'
No wonder the other photo is more well known.....
Great pics thanks.
Yes I remember them,but cannot remember them being called Solatios though-these were definetly the more(Italian)Style.
No Commennt !!!!
That is a worrying looking couple of pics, also Jeans are a bit tight, ,.
Definitely verging on the 'homo-erotic', IMHO. (Or perhaps it's me, discovering a side I never knew I had?)
I googled 'gay skinhead' - I know, how am I to explain that to the missus??? - and the one of the pics turned up here:
So, pretty inconclusive?
WARNING!!! (This could prove to be a dodgy site if you're at work .) WARNING!!!
I have seen the top pic (renowned for the size of their Bollocks, I mean, the jeans are even faded around them), also seen 2 (maybe3) other pics from the same day,
one outside a pub, one outside a chipshop, but never the bottom one, wish i still hadnt tbh
Ooooooh they are awful!!!!!
I noticed that but I, unlike those lads and you Gramps, didn't have the balls to say it
Loads of great partings here. The two fellas behind the lad with the leather, can anyone make out the shoes? Tall one with roll neck and lad to his right? Also braces over a roll neck is that?
The Packets on them lads has been righfully respected ever since the picture first surfaced in the 90's.
I alwasy said, it seemed somehow homoerotic, appears I was right.
Nice Clobber though, (even down to the watch ) few bobs worth in todays money.
