I'm from Melbourne.
I forgot the original reason I came back on here lol. Although I'm not strictly a skinhead anymore I did just pick up a sheepskin off evilbay. Would like a little gentle criticism... I did a couple of years of a tailors apprenticeship when I were a lad and my mum is a gun dressmaker so some alterations aren't entirely out of the question...
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...
I like it. Nice buy mate.
How can I have forgotten this:
Not the religion (make your own decisions, kids)... it just worked for (some of us) up here.
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.
Not sure if the big J could was all your sins away, Ed!
Was looking at the Bass Weejuns in the Ivy Shop this year - not a patch on the old ones (as with most things nowadays).
the BIG J CAN DO ANY THING, WERES THE IVE,Y SHOP ?
John Simons shop
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.
If your into your skinhead look, there is a Clothing company in the UK where i get my clothes cheap and they will ship to the US. Their call Warrior clothing, very very good stlyes and at a good price.
My lawyers will be in touch, re that unnecessary slur on my character.
Pic looks early/mid 70's but this is exactly how I've always imagined the
skinhead friendly youth clubs to be.(could be a boozer tho, with the ciggie machine)
Check out 8min 30 secs into this clip about DON LETTS's mod film.
Skinhead/hard mod was a reaction to Psychedelic freakbeat
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.....
first wave mod - Jazz, second wave - RnB, 3rd wave - the who/small faces. if things were only that simple.
Here's one for 'Buttons', is this your good self on the far left on this CD cover ?
