    They wanted 90 quid for it but had a best offer thing on the auction. I put down 50 quid thinking they would get back to me but it just accepted it straight away. being the tight bastard that I am, I am now wondering how low I couldv'e gone...

    But having said that 50 quid for a nice vintage sheepskin isn't totally horrible I spose.

    But if you are looking for one yourself have a look at their listings, they have another one that looks half decent and you never know they might just accept 20 quid...

    How can I have forgotten this:



    Not the religion (make your own decisions, kids)... it just worked for (some of us) up here. :)

    And this:

    I lifted another version from You Tube and it was full of Nazi imagery... WTF is that all about?

    Bought some new Bass loafers but the quality not what we are used to, BTW. :brick:

    John Simons shop

    http://www.johnsimons.co.uk/

    A little pricey but a cool shop. Some great gear. Full of high end Ivy league lines with the odd bit of vintage.
    Well worth a visit.

    Have not seen that before.The usual inaccuracies in there,wrong Styles etc.-but(with the likes of Robert Elms-who manages to give a definite account of what went on,even though he was not personally involved in either the Original Skinhead or the Original Mod)it is taken as Gospel.Eddie Pillar(who I do know) only read about the Mods-and became one in the "Revival".I was 2nd Wave Mod,not as he claims 3rd Wave(there was not one).Who,in their right mind would go to a group of Fellas and say"what are you?".Lucky he was not "smacked" there and then.....:)
