    Did they do measurements? Obviously a Men's Large is going to be bigger than a Woman's Large and so on.

    Hi the shoes look ok until you see the rubber soles. In my opinion M&S clothing and shoes are not the quality they were years ago. I do not know where you are based but I purchase my Loake Royals from http://www.discount-shoe-sales.com/index.html

    They are in Victoria London and are only open 9.30 to 5 pm Mon to Fri. They carry a great range and many of the original quality styles. I paid just under £100 for a pair black Royals that are around £150 on the Loake web site. Its worth paying the extra money for decent leather soled shoes – they look and feel better.

    I think you'll find sheepskins come in various cuts.
    Womens ones are sometimes meant as overcoats and therefore less fitted (and would appear more like a blokes' cut).
    Other times they're meant as a fitted jacket, so will have a womanly shape.

    An original skinhead mate of mine, so desperate for a sheepskin, once wore his mother's, hoping no-one would notice. Let's just say he never wore it a second time!

    By the way, Bunty - thanks for posting that link - very good.

    I've often found that a lot of older garments like that are very ambiguous and do not feature the classic right hand/left hand buttons identifier and I still can't wrap my head around a sheepskin jacket.

    Is it something like this? from the tv series mccloud?

    Around `71/`72 a Long-Haired Sheepskin Coat appeared(looking similar to this-but longer).I think you would definitely know Females` Sheepskin.

    Aye, true. Not saying they are a great shoe at all, yep those soles are dreadful, but for the price.
    I live down under, about 80 or so miles south of Sydney and it's bloody difficult to find decent clobber
    in the shops, so i do most of my clothes and shoes shopping online. Bought a great pair of
    Allen Edmonds off ebay for around $80!. Well pleased with them.

    I'm new to this forum and surprised to find a skinhead thread. I was a skin also in late 80's to mid 90's. I was a die-hard Oi/punk fan , Blitz, Business, Partisans etc. I was the 14 hole Dm, oi! t-ishirt, and bomber jacket type skin :) I hung out in NYC, went to Oxblood and Templers gigs. I saw The Business at their first US show in 94.
    Anyway, I joined this forum as Im looking to update my wardrobe. My personal style of the last 15+ years has been jeans, t-shirts, and black slacks and button up dress shirt to wear to my 9-5 desk job. Though I recently started wearing Fred Perry again.

    I still love 77 punk and early 80's UK Oi!. I really lost interest in American Oi! though. The Press was good, though the singer is a weirdo (satanic commie skin?? lol) I've been a huge Paul Weller fan the past 8 years and been to every NY gig since then. I didnt listen to much soul as a teenage skin, but I love it now. I also learned about bands like Small Faces from being into Weller.

    One thing about being a skin back then is that although I dont have a "style" per se, I have always had an affinity for tailored , neat looks. I think although I may not look like a skin anymore, I think there are subtle clues that I notice in my dress. I always have a short haircut, #2 on the sides. check button ups, etc. Just the idea of being well fitted comes from my background as a skin, and being interested in mod, rudeboy, UK culture, etc
