    very intersting gary what part of the world you from mate. what was the statement you guys were making it will be good to compare with other skins from the same era i am 56 so in 1969 i was 14 im wondering if you may be older as i remember the first wave of skins started with that work look even with the old collarless grandads shirt braces and army greens ect i think the music did matter

    sorry gary i ran out of space, going back to the music i think the music ie liquidator and the return of django were a big part of the skin sub culture, that and other tunes got us all moving together not just on the dancefloor but as a unit, all for one and one for all. i can remember plenty of times when the tonic mohair or pow check were ruined after a roll round on the floor so to me clothes and styles and music did matter. And still does i also value your opinion and its good to talk with ya mate

    Oh, yes, Sunday nights in the local fleapit/bug hut, those with birds trying it on, those without, shouting at the picture - Dirty Harry, Hammer Horror or Kung-Fu classics - curry and chips from the local Chinese take-away on the way home... God, I miss being young.

    Missed it for months, we were all getting older and the 'fun' was wearing thin, but one dark, cold, winter night, me and 'her' decided to pay a visit to the old place... it was a Sunday, as usual, we sauntered up to the door and were told we weren't welcome, and how we wouldn't enjoy it... the doorman was right, the place had started to show Hindi films... we exited and went to the pub. :satisfied:

    Used to go to the Apollo Ardwick (now a decent-sized music venue) when there was a new film - a 'big one' as opposed to the dross that had done the rounds for three months - and always, without fail, I used to fall on the same step going upstairs.

    My bird, at the time, used to be amazed... and the more I tried to avoid doing it... the more chance of my arse-ing up on another step.

    Weirdo or what? :slayer:

    We have spoken on here about the Boots, Before we got smart in 67/68. we would walk around the streets quite scruffy, Boots , Cheap jeans, Jungle Greens, Donkey jacket, any type of shirt, I am going over old ground here ...maybe Gary should read the whole thread first , then make a statement.
    The above look was invented at school 67/68..mostly down to the fact we was at school and had a lack of money and had to make do with what we could get hold of, mostly out of Army Surplus shops.

    Once we left school and had money we started to buy the nice cloths and for some reason looked a bit like Mods.

    One of my favourite films, Ed! Bob and I have often commented on the clothes the lads in the bogs are wearing in that bit of the film, so not so weird! Been in the Oxford a couple of times years ago. Shame they pulled down the Trinity Square car park: love that bit!
